Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
I have a 2002 Ford Explorer that runs rough at Idle (and has stalled 3 times while stopped) -once the engine is warm. It does not occur after starting, but only happens after the engie is warmed, especially after driving for a long distance. The RPM fluctuates as much as +/- 400 RPM or less. It has very high mileage, but until recently has run smooth.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Engine stalls cold or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
