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.

My 1999 explorer does want to start and when it does it shuts off when shifted into reverse . Could it be the battery?


G'day, I don't know but the engine could be in survival mode. It enables you to get to the mechanic. Cheers Greg.

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT and the brake lights and reverse lights don't work. I don't have a diagram of the fuse panel.We have checked everything else.


Have you checked under the hood in the engine compartment? I do believe there is a fuse box there with fuse for the brake/reverse.

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1999 ford explorer? Is there a picture?


PCV BasicsPCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation.
All car engines have a PCV valve and it is located on top of the motor's valve cover. There is a vacuum line attached to it. It pulls out of the valve cover and if you shake it, you should hear a marble knocking inside it. If you shake it and don't hear anything, it's bad. It costs less than 5 bucks to replace.

Location
  • 4.0L is located in the valve cover near the brake booster

  • 5.0L is located behind the intake manifold (engine rear)
