The ford explorer is dying a couple of times a week. It only dies when you are at a stop light. It always restarts and runs fine on the road.

Sound like a dirty intake/Throttle body try cleaning with INTAKE CLEANER. To clean take off intake hose and spay throttle body wiping with rag clean throttle flap/butter fly hold open by stepping on gas pedal or manually holding open with cable. clean thoroughly and wipe clean. this should take care of the problem. Also check air filter make sure it clean. Contact if you need more help. Good Luck

Sometimes, usually a few times a week, my 1995 Ford Explorer will not start. When I try to crank it up, it just clicks like the battery is dead. The lights, radio, etc. will be on but the battery display...


Remove the battery terminals, clean the posts and terminals and coat them with anti-corrosion grease. Wash your hands after this procedure to prevent mysterious holes in your clothing. With luck, this should fix your intermittent.

Dying 2001ford explorer sports trac


I had the same problem. I would get to a red light or stop sign, and my tach would go to 1000, then 500 then, if I didn't rev the motor, it would die. It turned out to be a vacuum leak. A rubber elbow shaped 1" line on the top of the motor, toward the front, but underneath the black plastic linkage cover (3 screws to remove). I don't hear that well, but I had a friend listen, and he could hear the sucking/hissing sound. The rubber elbow slides over two pipes; one that is going to the front of the vehicle, then turns right and connects to a second pipe going to the driver's side. If not this line, look for others. Good luck!

Dying


Sounds like you are losing vacuum pressure. I would have a mechanic check all your vacuum lines. I had the same problem a while back and all it was was a broken 92cent hose.
