Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

2001 ford explorer sport engine stopped while I was driving

I was driving yesterday and my engine completly shut down. I had it towed and I need to get it fixed. I am thinking it may be something with the spark plugs( which were just replaced 3months ago) or the fuel injector.  I also noticed that my antifreeze went low after I filled it about two weeks ago

I was driving and explorer just shut down the power steering went out


Hi...I am assuming it will not restart? This is typical of a fuel pump that has used its life span. Is your check engine light on? If so..get someone to read your computer codes to see whats going on...AutoZone will check codes for free.

I have automatic 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac bought from USA, the car did not run since i received it because it does not move when i put the level to D nor R position.


What you can try is to start the vehicle, put it in Neutral, press on the brake, and while doing that press the 4x4 Button and hold it for 5 seconds. If this does not help, you will need an Owners Manual for Year specific information.

You want to reset your Transfer case from being towed to Run. It sounds like your unit was switched to the current Mode for transit. Another idea is to contact the Tow company who delivered it for advice on this setting. Even if you used a Tow dolly yourself, I imagine the towtruck drivers would need to know how to switch this setting when they tow an Explorer themselves.

This Tow mode is used to enable towing the SUV behind a Motorhome. The Automatic transmissions need lubricant on the seals or they will burn up. The Tow mode disengages the Transfer case and keeps some of the parts from turning. You need to look at Year specific information because of the difference in Automatic transmissions. For a short time, there were engine options which included a different transmission for better mileage with bigger engines.

The older models needed a Tow dolly and the newer models can just use a Tow bar on the frame.
I hope my opening statement fixed your problem. Should you want to Tow your SUV behind another vehicle, you will need to use the Tow feature.

Enginge shuts off when in reverse


Does it do it when putting the car in drive? It could be your lockup solenoid or possibly a bad torque converter. Please do not take my word for it, take it to a licensed ford mechanic (have it towed I should say)

Won't start, starter will spin but will not engage fly wheel to crank up engine


Sounds like the starter drive is shot, best thing to do is replace starter with new or rebuild.
