    I figured out the problem myself. One of the battery cables was not contacting all the time. Your site was really not helpful to me at all and I am disappointed that I spent money for the tips I got.

Stalls out at stop signs and red lights. Couple of time while coasting. Hard to restart. Eventually does. Prior to stalling, RPM is low and oscillating slightly. Once, after restart, had no control on...

I would take it to your local shop and have them test the idle air control motor which is mounted on the top of the motor and also check the mass air flow meter located in the air intake system. If you can keep slight pressure on the gas pedal and the motor continues running, then I would first suspect the IAC as being the problem.

My 2001 Explorer Sport stalls in gear coming to and stopping at street lights or signs. It stalls only in gear when the AC or heat defroster is on. It doesn't stall when in park.

it could be the IAC ( Idle Air Control) solenoid, but I cant tell you how to easily test it. So I ASSUME the a/c works OK when driving? I would replace the IAC first, its a real common problem.

Have you checked your fuel filter or fuel pump as these can cause your engine to to shut off, but there usually is some sort of warning, but not always.

2000 ford explorer 4.0 x-engine is stalling, missing and lose power while driving

I personally would check the fuel pressure. Then I would go back to the coil. I have seen brand new bad coils out of the box. The symptoms of a loss of power point to this component, especially if the car idles well, but loses power when accelerating. Please do not rate this reply - we all are left to grasp at straws since you have changed pretty much everything. Good Luck. Please post the final fix of the problem.
