Hey man just change the fuel filter it should be a good start to fixing the problem. Maybe change spark plugs as well ,you know start small.

I assume the code (32) you mention is from a diagnostic readout tool.

If you do not have the original info that came with the readout, you may have to go to the tool manufacturer's website.

The entry P0032 on my Centech OBD II yields this:

"HO2S Heater Circuit High Voltage Bank 1 Sensor 1"

That doesn't make muchsense to me in view of your symptoms but maybe it will help.

Ford excursion 2002 - starting fine but losing power and stalling after running for 10 minutes. Rest for about 5 minutes, then starts up again


Can you perform a spark test? I would like to know if it has spark when it stalls. Also, if you have a can of starter fluid, wait for it to stall and not want to restart, the quickly spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it runs on the starter fluid, you have a fuel issue. You might also want to make sure the engine coolant level is fine and you aren't overheating. If you coolant level is low you may not know it is overheating since the coolant sensor isn't in coolant. It won't read air.

Stalls out when gas is let off


You don't say what size engine you have, so diagnostic analysis is a bit difficult. Please supply engine size and answer these questions.

1. After it stalls, do you sometimes smell fuel?
2. Does it restart easily after a stall, or do you have to hold the gas pedal to the floor to restart it?
3. Can you keep it running by working the gas pedal?
4. Has you fuel consumption increased since this began?

I ask these questions because on most engines there is a coolant temperature sensor that the ECM used to control the amount of fuel to the injectors based upon the engine coolant temperature. When the engine is cold it supplied more fuel than when warm. If the sensor malfunctions it tells the ECM that the coolant is -40F
and that causes massive fuel to be supplied. This may not affect a cold start once the engine needs the fuel, but it will flood and stall out the motor when warm. If you can keep the engine running by pressing the gas pedal, you are allowing the motor to rev up and use the extra fuel, but you will find you gas mileage reduces by as much as half.

Car stalls when put in 'drive'


Check your air horn (big rubber boot) to the throttle body. It may have a crack on the underside and when you put it in drive and the engine torques to that side the crack opens and causes it to die.

Will it stall if you keep your foot on the gas like the Idle speed is set low? Possible Idle speed motor? I'll have to look up the location of the low coolant sensor.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

No ck eng. lt, but have error codes on scanner


Yes. 1 is a bad O2 sensor and the other a mis-fire.

Best thing to do is a major tune up (replace plugs/wires/fuel filter/PCV valve/etc...) and also replace the Bad O2 sensor.

Running it like this can cause long term damage. Let alone you are losing gas milage as well.

Good luck.
