Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1999 ford explorer v6 4.0 stalls in drive and reverse

Just changed the muffler, ran without one for awhile. Two hours and a car wash (barely sprayed underbody) later it will run fine in park and neutral but kills after it engages into drive, reverse, 1 or 2. Can't figure it out, it was running like a champ after the new muffler was put on. Please help!

SOURCE: automatic ford escort 1998 will not shift out of "park"

There is a switch between the brake and the transmission. I forget what its called but unless you have your brake pedal pressed your car will not shift out of park. If you do have your brake pedal pressed there may be something wrong with the sensor.

When braking my 1999 ford explorer engine shut off


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Stalls randomly


Go to the nearest muffler shop and get them to check your exhasut compression. The undetectable "cloged cataylatic converters" cause too much back pressure and are causeing the stalls. Most of the time they will check for free or you can check yourself by checking the pressure before and after the "cats" on both sides.

2002ford truck explorer when i frist start my truck it will stall out a few times then wiil run good for awhile then for some reason stall out 3 or 4 times some times i can drive for 150 miles with no...


it sounds to me that you idle controll valve isnt responding (could be dirty) get a can of carb cleaner and clean the thottle body inside and with the engine running. squirt just a little and the engine will start to stall and the idle air controll will start to open ( you will hear it start sucking) then spray more in sperts try to keep the engine running at idle . this will make the engine RPM's change and open and close the idle controll valve thus cleaning it. when done save some carb spray. put the air cleaner hose back on. and start the engine and with the engine idling spray around the intake and base of throttle body if the rpms change you have a vaccume leak than will need to be repaired.
good luck

My 2000 ford explorer is stalling, misfiring and cutting off during hot weather driving....could it be a bad pcm, idle control value or something else


I had my 1999 xlt do this to me last month when we were having 95+ degree weather and I was driving in the mountains. It just stalled on me. I let it sit for a half hour and drove fairly slow with the windows down and no air. I was told that it vapor locked on me?? It hasn't acted up since. Who knows!
