Question about 2001 Ford Explorer
I would replace the TPS switch which is a throttle position sensor mounted on the Airhorn behind the air filter ductwork. It is a small part, about the size of a butane lighter and has 2 screws and 1 electric connection.
The only thing to watch is lining up the inside part of the TPS with a slot on the shaft it operates with. This part takes the place of the Accelerator on the old cars.
Autozone and Oreillys will scan the car for free and let you know about problems. Sometimes the TPS does not show bad because of its wide operating range. If you have not changed fuel filters in awhile it could affect starting too.
