How do i stop my 1994 ford explorer from sputtering and shutting down when driving at low speed


Not getting enough fuel. There are two coolant temperature sensors one for the gauge. one for the computer. the one to the computer monitors fuel. When it fails the engine is slow to start the first try and there is a strong odor of gasoline. The engine will run rough at some speeds and sometimes stall.

Intermittent rough idle


Possible dirty throttle body/plate. Start at the parts store and get Throttle body cleaner. While you are there get some Mass Air Flow sensor cleaner (both very specific and should not be interchanged) and clean them both. Good idea to clean these from time to time. I do this as part of my fall routine...new air filter, oil change, wiper blades.

Why are the lifters getting louder and intermittent sputter.


There are several reasons for noisy lifters. They could be starved for oil due to low oil pressure or dirt in the engine.
When the lifters are noisy they are not opening the valves completely, which can cause the engine to run rough.

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold, other symptoms include stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

check fuel pressure it should be 9-13 psi with engine running.You will have to remove fuel filter and install a fuel pressure adapter part #TA37650 to be able to check pressure.

Hi have a problem with the running of the engine, at a certain temp the engine starts running rough, ie loses power , bunny hops, feels like lack of fuel (just as the ecu goes into open loop), if you back...


sounds like a fuel issue i would recommend replacing the fuel filter it is a cheap and easy fix after that if the problem persists then i would take it to a shop to get a free diagnosis in order to find out if it is your fuel injectors or your fuel pump. more symptoms of a bad fuel system would be extreme drop in rpm when put into drive, choking or sputtering, large amounts of smoke from the exhaust pipe, or complete shut down of motor after running.if you need any instruction on removal and installation of any part please comment back on this post thank you, and good luck.
