My 99 ford explorer won't start unless I hold the gas down I can drive it but as soon as I take my foot off the gas it dies

I would check to see if the intake gaskets are leaking, Especially the upper or plenum gaskets.

Car stalls when foot off gas pedel does not hold idle

these trucks are equipped with an idle speed control motor. What you're describing sounds like that part has stopped working. The part is designed to maintain idle when gas pedal is released. Now if you hear an audible hissing noise under the hood, then theres a vacuum leak which can cause the same problem, but it sounds like the idle control motor. Good luck.

I just replaced the drive belt, idler pully and tensioner on my 96 ford explorer and now its stalling. It wasn't stalling before this happened. The engine stays running as long as I have my foot on the gas...

that has nothing to do with that,make sure all is connected like the mass air flow sensor and sensor on the intake tube it under it hard to see. and also if battery was unhooked then may need to reset idle, just keep foot on gas for a few minutes if that still does not help then replace the idle air controlm valve, hope this helps.heres a diagram to help locate parts.4627f3e.gif

Dies when drive

My 99 Explorer would not run unless you held the pedal to the floor. Found out ford has a recall on their intake gaskets. If you see what the intake gaskets look like you'll wonder how the motor runs at all. I had that prob for 50,000 miles and I changed those gaskets and now it runs like a new ford.
