AN OBSTRUCTED CATALYTIC CONVERTER CAN BE DIAGNOSED BY CHECKING THE ENGINE VACUUM AT IDLE. IT SHOULD BE 20 INCHES OR SLIGHTLY HIGHER. ANYTHING LOW WOULD MEAN AN EXHAUST RESTRICTION

how often does it do this? does the car sputter, **** and stall before turning off? it could be as simple as bad gas, water or condensation in gas tank, up to a blown head gasket. have a professional diagnose it with a check engine code reader, or have Auto Zone do it for free.

My 2004 Explorer will not accelerate, only idles. Disconnected the battery to clean the terminals. Charged the battery on 6amps High for two hours. Started fine but will not accelerate from idle.


verify the gas pedal cable is connected out at the throttle body,you will need to remove the plastic cover that covers the linkage on the throttle body.

1996 Ford Explorer vibrates when idling. Also have noticed that when I go 80 mph, it "jumps" every few seconds. Like it skips a beat. I don't know how to explain it but it seams to "stall" like if you were...


You have a hesitation. A hesitation is cause be either:
1. bad spark plug
2. bad spark plug wire
3. bad or leaky or plugged injector
4. timing is off
5. leaky vacuum hose

My ford explorer 1999 model is not accelerating very well.


It seems you may have overlooked the most obvious, the fuel filter. A severely choked filter will cause exactly this problem. You might have gotten a batch of dirty gas if it came on suddenly.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
