No pwr to engine, 04 ford explorer

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

My 1998 ford explorer jerks when I am driving it. I was told it could be a transmission speed sensor. input or output I don't know which. help

Lot's of things can make it ****. The transmission can but engine missfires are more likly. Is the check engine light on? Transmission failure your refering to will turn the check engine light on. Many auto parts stores will connect a scanner to your can at no charge to see what codes are stored in the (engine control computer) The transmission control module is also connected the the ECM and the codes can be read. Some codes will be stored and not trun the check engine loight on as they may help you decide the course of action.
