Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My 1999 ford explorer won't idle when in gear. Just sputters then dies. Can rev it in neutral and 2000 RPM's and above it purrs like kitten. Go below 2000 rpm's it sputters and stalls out. Getting fuel, battery fine, getting spark and starts w/o any problems. I think it may be a sensor, O2 or throttle position sensor?

My honda 2003 jerks when i change gear from to Reverse or Drive. Also, when on Neutral or Park, the revs/s is about 2. i dont know if that's normal. thanks


The revs should be around 700- 900 rpm while in neutral. Revs about 2 (2000 rpm) is absolutely abnormal, and of course the vehicle will **** with any gear change. Furthermore, continued operation of the car in this condition will damage the transmission. Seems like the idle sensor, MAP sensor or other part is working incorrectly. Take vehicle to a shop for a scan of the computer and repair, in order to save the VERY costly transmission.

Car drops out at 2700 rpm and sputters


There is a rev limiter in these cars that disallows over revving in park or neutral. Does it climb past 2700 under hard acceleration?

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle
