I agree. Most like the throttle body has to be cleaned. A transmission flush may also be in order

SOURCE: 1998 ford explorer speed senors

for the 1998 Explorer XLT with the 4.0 EFI (not the SOHC), the speed sensor is located on top of the rear diff. and it is a magnetic one, you won't find it at autoparts store, i ordered it straight from the dealership. cost me $550 MXN ($37 USD)

and if what person above suggest didn't work, try doing a simple tranny tune up by changing the filter and workd for me.

Mercedes slk 230 kompressor supercharger doesn't kick in when gas pedal depressed to gain speed.

only a turbo "kicks in".a supercharger is a compressor that uses the speed of the engine, so the faster the engine the more pressure....use the gearbox for rapid acceleration....
