Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
I have a 2002 Ford Explorer V6. Last night I noticed that it began to spudder as I pulled into a parking lot. The service engine light started flashing. When I drove away I noticed when trying to excellerate there was a loss of power and the light continued to flash. Does anyone happen to know what this could mean? Thank you!!
I somewhat agree with other solutions on this page. I agree that what you are describing is a severe misfire, however there are MANY possible causes for a severe misfire other than just the spark plugs...I recommend diagnosing the CAUSE of the misfire before spending any money "GUESSING" and replacing a bunch of parts.
Also, a code P0300 is a "RANDOM MISFIRE" code which indicates that there is definately more than one cylinder misfiring. Your computer MAY display this code, however, a SINGLE cylinder misfire can also cause a loss of power and the check engine light to flash.
You may just have something like a bad coil on one cylinder that needs to be replaced. This is why PROPER diagnosis is recommended.

Change your spark plugs. That flashing engine light is caused by severe misfiring. The code would probably be P0300 if read.
