If your car is losing power, then turning on the air conditioner will make it seem like you are losing more. The air conditioner uses a couple of horsepower. Take the car to Autozone and ask them to check for engine codes - I assume that the engine light is on? I think that it is an O2 sensor.
P.S. My opinion is that Ford Explorer is one of the best cars I have ever owned (I have had three). What I hear is that the Dodge is a much more problematic piece of machinery. Of course that is only my opinion.

SOURCE: Ford explorer stuck in low 4wheel drive

put it back into 2 wheel drive, then reverse 10 or 15 feet, this should unlock the hubs.

Easy Fix! I know exactly what ur talking about, had the same problem for ******* ever, and its not the fuel pump, trust me!!! and it will cost you absolutely nothing to fix! I don't know what the hell they're called exactly, but on the right side of your engine there's a black box, next to where you put the coolant in, with fuses in it. They look like one inch cubes and will say Ford right on top. One of them is for the fuel pump. Try switching it with one of the others, or just switching all of them around and ur car will fire up, but the one that's not working will cause something else not to work properly, but at least u'll now what the problem is. Than just do what I did: take one with you and go to a junk yard and pull out a bunch, they're the same on many ford vehicles, even the newer ones, like 2000, not just the explorer. Make sure its the same one, pull out a bunch, put em in ur pocket and leave without paying, nobody will notice anyways, but they're tricky to find at a parts store, surprisingly. When ur car is running beatiful again, come back to this post and tell me if I was right! God knows how many ours I spent in that car stranded, waiting for it to fire up. Sometimes it'd be 5 minutes, sometimes an hour, sometimes hours, even days. Never knew when it would or wouldn't. Thought is was the starter too! If it works, tell me!!!

Have you changed the air filter. It may have come in contact with paint and boy work dust.

sounds like a wiring issue. I'd start by checking the wires around the radio and see if they are chaffed or broken.

My 1997 Ford Explorer XL shakes when I start it. What could it be?


Spraying WD40 on the belt stops it from squeaking, no need to replace it.
If it is misfiring, that will cause a shudder at low RPM.
There is no such think as an intake valve gasket. A manifold gasket on the inlet side, can let air into the mixture and cause misfire. Normally that is fixed by tightening loose nuts on the studs that locate the manifold.

My 1999 Ford Explorer XLT has started stalling while driving down the road. Sometimes it will start right back up and run fine, other times it will run for a minute or two and then stall again. Sometimes...


couple of things,if you a autozone ,pepboys or another automotive store around they can diagnose it for free,or you may want to check your idle air control valve aslo known as iacv its on your intake manifold close to your carb it could be clogged up with carbon from burned fuel build up.good luck

My ford explorer has been making a noise while driving it for about 2 months, this morning it started fine and i drove it across town, i parked it and 2 hours later i get in it and its making more noise...


You may want to stop driving it, open the hood, and check to make sure your belts are still attached.
The smell might be that your very low on power steering fluid, which would also make it extremely hard to steer.

Car dies going down the road


First thing i would check would be the fuel filter. Sometimes, when they first start to give problems, there is enough gas to keep them idling or driving around town, but when you get on the highway they starve for fuel.
