94 ford explorer problems with acceleration

At first it did not want to go past 15mph the engine sounded forced, but afterwards, it was able to reach higher speeds. when it came time to slow down or stop completely, it wouldnt. my foot would be completely off the gas pedal and it would be on the brake pedal all the way but it wouldnt stop, it would keep accelerating on its own. the only way to stop it was to put it in neutral or the park gear, and on its own it would de-accelerate on its own. when it was doing so, smoke would come through the front tires and burning smell. what is wrong with it?

First off, it's a ford. this sounds like a dealer issue and i don't know alot about fords. what i do know is that the cruise control in these vechiles have a default. moisture enters something, i forgot what, shorts out, then vechile accelerates on it's own, even with braking hard. as for not wanting to accelerate, sounds like a tranni problem. sorry i couldn't be more useful.

How to fix uneven engine performance when press gas pedal, on parking.and engine reach 3000+ rpm's engine start to sort of choke with uneven acceleration.


ok, sounds like you covered the basics with spark. I would check in this order; 1-Throttle position sensor, sometimes it wears out and you get poor signal back to computer, 2-clean MAF sensor, 3-check/clean IAT (intake air sensor). If this still doesn't help then I would check your fuel flow....but i'm thinking its your tps. Two screws will change that out quickly.

After my 94 ranger heats up, about 3-4 miles, it starts runniing very rough and stalls when I decelerate


Your torque converter lock-up solenoid is sticking in the "Locked-up" position.

When you accelerate past 1st gear (into 2nd), your transmission "locks-up" to the engine

Engine taps when accelerating, let off gas and it


HOPE IT'S NOT PISTON SLAP, IF LACK OF MAINTANENCE WAS THE CASE MAY BE INTERNAL DAMAGE OR VALVETRAIN DAMAGE. IF IT RUNS ROUGH MAYBE SOMETHING ON ROTATING ASSY DAMAGED.

Check engine for good tune up, may those spark plugs are fouled out beyond belief, its always best when changing motors to use known good parts....
