SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion

Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps

SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer won't move in reverse

Sometimes it may just be the fluid level, if you have drive , drive it around the block a few times, then park it on level ground and hold the brake and go through all the gears slowley, two times. put it in park, open the hood and check the fluid level, the dip stick in the back by the fire wall, take it out and clean it, read the stick. SOME need to be checked in Nutral, if this is the case do so but be carefull that the truck has stopped moving when put in nutral!!! if it is low only put in the right fluid, and a little at a time, while it is still running DO NOT OVER FILL !!!!!!!! Also sometimes it is a SENSOR problem, and in most cases not to hard or costly to replace.

possible fuel pump. Try spraying starting fluid into breather while someone is cranking engine. if vehicle tries to run it is fuel problem. If not it could be an electrical componet overheating and cooling and restarting. Coils, relays, ecm.

You need to remove the trans pan to inspect the parking pawl and rod. Hopefully you can adjust or repair with trans in your vehicle.

Also don't assume your cable etc is okey. You don't know that. You may be able to adjust it and be okey.

1998 ford explorer tries to stalled when stopped at red lights or stop signs. If I give it a little gas while holding the brake it is fine. Help.


Check your fuel pressure if it is fuel injected on the fuel rail....other than that, it is a good possibility that either you need to change your fuel filter or fuel pump.

1998 taurus stalls out when shifting to first, when you get it to go the entire time its driving it is jerking and hopping down the road. Doesn't stall out at red lights or when you stop. Could it be the...


Check the spark plugs, and wires. If you see nothing wrong here, it may be getting just enough of gas to keep it running (ALMOST CUTTING OFF, BUT A SHOT OF GAS BARELY KEEPS IT GOING) this could cause it to jump and hop. If this is the case then it may need a fuel system cleaning, one of the injectors may not be functioning at the right PSI. I don't think it would be the ignition coil.
