Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Engine stops while running.

I bought a 1996 ford explorer with 134k last January, at first i observed that at intervals the engine will automaticlly stop while running and on returning my selector to neutral it will start again.But in past few days the problem have gone to the point that the engine now stops/off once i brake. I have complained this to few mechanics and they are diferently pointing to; fuel pump or filter,baterry, alternator and air filter. Please assist.

Hey Pince,
the issue would revolve around what slows down while you are slowing/stopping - reducing engine RPM's...... (alternator, battery charging). A GOOD mechanic should be able to diagnose this issue,, take it to a (older) qualified professional... (older=more experience).. good luck..

SOURCE: Ford Escort 1998 fuel pump not working.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.

When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.

I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.

My ford explorer 1996 gauge would drop below 500rpm when i step on the break to stop and engine vibrate, rpm will return back to 800 once I shift to neutral. Please advise what's wrong.


If you have a vacuum assisted brake then check the brake booster for failure allowing air into the mixture and running the engine lean. Simple test allow the engine to idle in neutral. If ok then place your foot on the brake and if it changes then it is the booster . Replace with serviceable unit.

Hey I got a 1996 ford explorer auto Running rich can I manual tune it


Rich running has nothing to do with a tune up unless the engine is misfiring, if it was misfiring you would have a blinking check engine light on while driving. Do an ODB2 fault code test, Autozone and Advance does this for free.

HIGH PRESSURE FUEL


Hi.

If fuel pressure is too high it is usually the fuel pressure regulator. The fuel pressure regulator can be tested observing how fuel pressure drops after turning engine off. Please see the clip below.

What major repairs can I expect for a 1996 ford explorer at 160,000 miles


If the vehicle was properly maintained, the engine and drive train should be in good working condition. Parts that are most prone to wear out would be: ball joints, control arm bushings, wheel bearings, shock absorbers, brakes, steering linkage parts. If the oil and filter were not changed at reasonable intervals, you could be looking at sludge buildup in the engine which could cause oil pressure problems and resulting wear on the internal engine bearings, which would most likely manifest itself in the form of a knock from the lower part of the engine(crankshaft/rods).

I start my truck an the robs are knocking and it


I believe there is a knock sensor on this engine causing it not to run. If the knock is too bad it wont run....It actually probably saved your engine....find out why the knock...out of timing?...clogged fuel filter? bad gas? thrown rod?
