2003 sport trac turned over started...died will not restart.


Could be bad altenator, voltage regulator, or battery. If the check engine light is on, it is most likely a bad sensor. The car will have to be put on scanner to find out exact reason light is on.

Dying 2001ford explorer sports trac


I had the same problem. I would get to a red light or stop sign, and my tach would go to 1000, then 500 then, if I didn't rev the motor, it would die. It turned out to be a vacuum leak. A rubber elbow shaped 1" line on the top of the motor, toward the front, but underneath the black plastic linkage cover (3 screws to remove). I don't hear that well, but I had a friend listen, and he could hear the sucking/hissing sound. The rubber elbow slides over two pipes; one that is going to the front of the vehicle, then turns right and connects to a second pipe going to the driver's side. If not this line, look for others. Good luck!

I have a 02 Sport Trac that starts and idles fine but when I put it in gear and try to acclerate it just dies and has a strong odor of rotten eggs if I let off gas and gently acclerate it will do about...


That right you nailed it 100% go to the muffler shop and get it fixed. BUT if you want it is easy to test remove the O2 sensor before the cat and see if there is an improvement in power. If there is then leave them out and that will allow you to safely get to the muffler shop and advod towing it up there.

Starts but won't stay running


Have someone help you do the following. Turn on the vehicle,before it dies,quickly tap the idle air control valve with a wrench or anything you have. If the engine does not die after you tap the IAC,this means that the IAC is faulty. The IAC is under the plastic plate that is behind the throttle body.
