My 01 explorer sport 4x4 4.0 sohc has a ruff start. Then, when i put it in gear will run untill i push gas then it sputters out.


Start with testing fuel pressure. Your fuel pump may be bad.
If fuel pressure is correct, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Autozone (and other parts stores) will do code scans for free.

Engine stall when put into gear.


There are a few possibility on this one. If you run it out of gas or really low on gas you could of sucked junk up from the bottom of the tank and you will need to replace your fuel filter. Another is that your fuel pump us going bad and you would need to check the pressure. Your throttle position sensor may have gone bad. Your idle control valve is another. Your map sensor or mas sensor could be bad

It is running ruff


did you disconnect the battery when you changed the starter? are there any codes stored? like james stated if it was starter related it would have happened right after but I also can't think of a starter causing any problems beyond not starting. if no codes I would check plugs, could be bad gas, and make sure all connectors are plugged in from when the car was worked on , something might have came loose or possibly broke.

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.


Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .

055 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for EGR

Idle on start up is ruff oncei drive it is ok?


Anytime the check engine light is on, you should check the computer for trouble codes. The codes will point you in the direction of the problem and what to troubleshoot.

My truck wont start unless i prime the carborator first, then it wont stay running unless i rev it high just before i put it in gear, or im accellerating...


To start with, you have a throttle body instead of a carburetor.
On that throttle body is a component called an air control valve.
That valve is how the computer controls the idle speed. It should open and close the air flow into the intake manifold as needed.
Is the check engine light on when you are driving ? Have you checked the fuel pressure ?

My check engine light is on again and keeps sayin bank 1 and bank 2. The autozone said to replace both O2 sensors. So I did. Check engine light came back and now in the mornings when I start it, it starts...


I would start to look around For a new vehicle. Drinking antifreeze and running ruff? Sounds to me like u either A cracked a head or B have a bad head gasket. Now neither of these are easy jobs. Both cost alot even I u DIY. Not in just parts but machine shop charges. If it was me, and if it was paid off, I would look for a new vehicle and drive it till it dies completely which by the sound of it won't be long sorry for the bad news

Car spudders when i put in gear


This is water in your fuel lines. when it was very cold, the water in the lines froze. when it melts, it runs to the injector system and causes these types of things to happen during acceleration. i would pick up some techtron. ths is good stuff. it will remove the water and, clean out the fuel system.
