Check for vacuum leaks.

Have someone feather the gas pedal while you listen carefully to the engine. If the leak is bad enough you'll probable hear it.
More than likely, it's either a vacuum hose or the o-rings under the intake manifold.

Hope this helps!

My 2001 Explorer Sport stalls in gear coming to and stopping at street lights or signs. It stalls only in gear when the AC or heat defroster is on. It doesn't stall when in park.


it could be the IAC ( Idle Air Control) solenoid, but I cant tell you how to easily test it. So I ASSUME the a/c works OK when driving? I would replace the IAC first, its a real common problem.

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport, 2 dr. 4.0 liter. I am having a problem with the torque converter lockup. It doesnt disengage normally. It will disengage if I tap on the brakes, but after about 3 seconds...


That is the way that the lock up TC should operate. This is what happens:

When the computer sees that you are at a set speed. or light accel, you are in 3rd gear or 4th, it will lock up. If you increase throttle, put your foot on the break or take your foot off the gas it will take it out of lock up. It will wait for a shor time then re-engauge. Hope this helps.
