Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

We have a 2001 Explorer Sport that acts like it isn't getting enough gas. It will be going fine then start to sputter/ hiccup like and give it gas and it goes slowly then fine. Can their be a blockage in the fuel filter or is this an IAC issue? Thanks for the help!

It could also be the MAF sensor. These get dirty and cause hesitation and sometimes will not start due to "something" covering the air flow. It doesn't take much to cause this sensor to act up.

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.

Van idles fine but when going the the road giving it gas it acts as if it isn't getting the proper gas ... it back fires....repleaced fuel filter and pump, crank and cam sensior


sounds like the timing is off. check the firing order to be sure your plug wires are on the correct positions on the coil packs. if that checks out, possibly a timing chain may need replaced. i hope this helps

Hi tinkerbel925

Have you tried scanning it with a scan tool? If this much is going wrong there should be a check engine light on. This will tell you what is making your van do all that crazy stuff.

Sputtering like crazy!!


I had a very similar problem we had a timing belt issue.
the car would not go over 50 and would sputter horribly.
We replaced all the belts and it has been fine since
I had replaced many other things before this one was figured out including two fuel pumps (ouch)
