Question about 2000 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Fuel System When pressing the gas pedal the Explorer makes a sound that reminds me of a cappuchino maker(a whoosing sound). The sound stops as soon as you take your foot off the gas pedal. The Explorer has 114,000 miles. Sometimes it hesitates when I take my foot off the gas pedal.

Is your check engine light on? you may have a missfire meaning either a bad plug, plug wire or coil pack. if the engine light is not on, you may want to try changing your fuel filter, or possibly your fuel pump filters/ the pump its self.

Stalls? when stopped for short periods of time


your fuel pump could be getting weak, check the fuel pressure. The throttle body or fuel injectors could need to be cleaned, try using injector cleaner in the fuel tank there it a cleaner you can spray into the throttle body a little at a time, use i higher or slightly raised idle. Make sure the air cleaner and air box are clean, animals love to build a nest in air boxes. also make sure the fuel injector wires have not been chewed on, look at all the wires closely.

Starter cranked over and the car wont start for my 2004 Acura TSX. Managed to start engine with gas pedal down but stopped as soon as the pedal was released.


it sounds to me like a fuel delivery problem. check or change fuel filter, and see if it takes care of problem. the worst case, is a weak fuel pump! check the filter first. good-day !

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I accellerating, it sounds like air or a whoosing sound is coming from the gas pedal. When foot is off the gas pedal, the sound stops. Any suggestions?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It may just be the air cleaner that you hearing. It tends to make a whoosing sound during acceleration.

My ford explorer 1997 V6 4.0L my truck start but unless i press the gas but as soon as i stop giving gas the truck stop i got told i need to change my alternator because i just changed the blower motor and...


doesnt make sense, you went from giving gas to keep running ,to switching blower motor,Heater blower motor i assume? to replace alternatoer? i'm lost, blower motor has nothing to do with the motor running or not. the alternator charges the battery in which you need power to run the electronics for ignition. make sure battery has full charge. now maybe your fuel shut off switch has triped.( located on passenger side firewall inside trk. remove lower side panel and you will see a black box with a button on it it should be pressed in if it is not then no fuel is getting to engine.press and attempt to start.

I own a 2002 Dodge Dakota 4x4 truck. As I am stepping on the gas pedal, the truck starts to slow down and makes a rough sound as though something is not receiving gas. The best way to describe the sound...


I would try 3 things
1. when was the fuel filter replaced last? I would replace it if you don't know when and you may have ran into some bad gas. Replace it.
2. Same with the air filter.
3. Add fuel injector cleaner.
Hope this helps.
