I just had the same issue with my 88 xlt w/351 W it wound up being the MAP sensor and the timing. I would check both of these and see if it solves your issue.

SOURCE: how do adjust the idle on a ford escape 2001 xlt

It sounds like your alternator or battery is beginning to fail. An alternator may provide enough power at idle when there is a low power load. Once you activate the heat or AC, the load is too much for a defective alternator to support.

Adjusting the idle is not the solution. Not only will it mask the electrical problem, it will prevent you from stopping your vehicle safely.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLT, stopped at a lite and it died but started right up and hasn't done it again. I havent had a tune up done is awhile. Could this be the problem


Could be a TPMS sensor or a MAP sensor. Check the fuel pressure to why u are at it. Cleanning the throttle body will be helpful also.If its been awhile i would check plug gap. To wide of a gap it wont fire like it should. A fuel filter is a plus also. Might be in the tank?
