Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

3 Answers

Engine shuts off when put in gear

I have a 1994 Ford Explorer. It runs great in park and in neutral but as soon as I put it in gear it shuts right off. There were no warning signs it just shut off at a red light. It starts up great and the engine is running true. When I engage it into gear (forward or reverse) it slightly bucks and shuts right off. Any help? I am truly lost and this is my only vehicle. I need to fix it fast.

Transmission tork converter lock has gone bad or bands are shot or the transmission is low on fluid.

Your Clutch assembly is not working.Check the hydraulic fluid in the clutch master cylinder, if low/not visible pour fresh clutch fluid, pumping the clutch pedal repeatedly till it starts responding. If clutch fluid is OK then the clutch plates a a gone case & need to be replaced...................sodeep

    Yeah the clutch assembly is in the automatic gear system. When the lever is engaged for forward or backward movement it self engages(centrifugal Clutch). Thats what needs attention.....sodeep

I have a 1993 Ford Explorer that goes into high idle when I put in gear. It does this when the engine is hot or cold.


On some cars there's a speed sensor on the clutch or transmission. That might cause an idle problem.

Starts fine runs fine pull in gear it goes dead


Hi Brent: I'm no mechanic but I would look for a vacuum leak. I had a old car that did this to me. Started and idled strong but you couldn't put it in gear or it would die. After weeks of various male friends looking at it one finally found the problem. Turns out it was a vacuum leak or Vacuum Modulator. I found this page online that might help... It explains how auto trans work... etc. Hope it helps.

Can I tighten the linkage on my 94 ford Taurus? The car will not start sometimes then when I put it neutral it usually will. The gears do not go in right they are off on the steering collum by one when in...


Its probably not the linkage, there should be an adjustment under the dash on the steering colum that operates your needle to tell you what gear your in. It might also affect the your ability to start the car because it thinks in gear and not in park or neutral when your turning the ignition. You should try removing the steering column cover and look right below your park, drive and neutral indicator. That's were it should be. There should be some form of adjustment.
