Its difficult to tell from the little information you have given but I would check on the top of the motor and see if there are any loose or broken vacuum hoses..they are about 3/8" in diameter.. you may hear an air sucking sound or a whistling sound also..these vacuum lines affect the idle

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLT, stopped at a lite and it died but started right up and hasn't done it again. I havent had a tune up done is awhile. Could this be the problem


Could be a TPMS sensor or a MAP sensor. Check the fuel pressure to why u are at it. Cleanning the throttle body will be helpful also.If its been awhile i would check plug gap. To wide of a gap it wont fire like it should. A fuel filter is a plus also. Might be in the tank?

03 ford explorer starts and dies


First, this "solution" assumes that the engine starts and runs OK, but will not idle once the key is returned to the RUN position.

A real common cause of that is the Idle Air Control Solenoid (IAC). To see if this is the problem, see if you can keep it running by stepping on the accelerator a little right when it is starting.

NOTE: you don't want to step on it before you start cranking the engine over or you will flood the engine. Also, step lightly, just enough to see if you can keep it "idling".

If you can keep the engine idling this way, then replace the IAC.

If this does not work, try unplugging the MAP Sensor and see if it will start and idle. If it continues to run (idle) with the MAP sensor unplugged, then replace the MAP sensor.

The next thing to suspect if none of the above works is the ignition switch. If it gets this far, post a comment to let me know and I'll post some instructions for testing the circuits for your ignition switch.

Don,t want to run or idle when cold


They put two different motors in the Explorer 4.0 overhead valve with vehicle Id code of( X) and the 4.0 single overhead Cam and a vehicle code of (E) If your vehicle has a E in the vehicle Id number I would replace the upper intake manifold gaskets. This particular Motor is very prone for the the upper Intake manifold gasket drying out and causing a large vacuum leak. The symptoms are engine will not Idle on dies on cold start up and after the engines reaches operating Temp idles fine .replace the upper intakes gaskets and I am sure you"ll be in great shape. Thanks for using fixya

Will start, then stops. stops when put in gear


sounds like the idle is set way too low on it.. there should be an idle screw on the trottle body.. just turn ut clock wise and it will slowly increase the idle rpm. make sure you do it in park though with the vehicle running. once it reaches 750 to 900 rpm stop and try it then it should stop dying..

If come to A light or A stop my engine want to stop I have to push on the gass if I don`t it will stop it`s ok is long I don`t STOP.1999 fordr explore 4 door xlt (ingine light is on)


does it start and run at idle in park.
it is probably either a vacuum leak or an idle air control valve,
if it misses and runs rough before it dies maybe a vacuum leak.
if it just idles too low, the iac valve

2003 sports trac keeps dying

My 99 explorer dies at a stop and starts right up.


Sounds like the idle air control solenoid is either sticking or is bad. It will let the motor die when at a stop very easily. You need to have the ecu scanned for a code to verify this first before doing anything else. I have even had a situation where a bad tank of gas also caused this, a fill-up cured it right away. Hope any of this helps you.
