2003 Ford Explorer XLT Wants To Stall At Low Idle,, especially when at a stop light


How does it idle in park , does it run ruff or smooth? Are any lights lit on the dash , check engine etc. ? Could have a partially plugged IAC air passage .idle air control (IAC) valve ! The engine computer uses the IAC to control idle , when under a load such as when put into gear the computer raises the idle ! It does this by allowing more air to by pass the closed throttle into the engine raising the idle ! If these air passages clog they restrict the air flow an cause a idle problem ! Now if it runs ruff at idle in park you could have vacuum leak ! Rough Idle How to Fix Ford Taurus Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

EXPLORER SOUNDS LIKE TRACTOR


Check the oil, if it has water in it you have a blown head gasket, if not then You have one or more cylinders misfiring, get a tune up. then if it's still doing it you probably have burned or sticking valves.

2002 ford explorer runs really ruff, when idoling and accelerating,


If it hasn't had the spark plugs and wiring changed within 60,000 miles,I'd change them out.
Clean the MAF sensor with brake spray cleaner also.Don't wipe the sensor wires,though.They're delicate.
If this is not the problem fixer,then check for `ye olde vacuume leake',which always is a good guess when idling poorly. don-ohio

96 windstar runs ruff and lights brightness flicker up and down(head lights, dashlihts, radio lights) what gives. replaced battery and alternator in May. Checked connections. Put meter to alternator and it...


sometimes when you buy cheap remanufactured parts you get rough running and dimming lights from voltage fluxuations.i always had good luck with new parts or factory stuff from low mileage wrecks.

Rought idle


There is a tester you can use that screws on the radiator cap and you can pump it up to see if it has a leak down effect in the system.. This wont tell you where its exactly going but tells you if there is a leak in the head or intake gasket.. probably should start with the intake and replace it and see if it does the trick .. if not then tear it down and replace the head gaskets and or check heads for cracks also.. thanks Jerry
