Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

1999 Ford Explorer stalls while driving. As long as my foot is on the gas it's fine, but when it idles it stalls. I have to pull over, turn off the car and then turn it back on. Then it'll drive for a few hundred feet but stalls again. Any ideas?

Car stalls when foot off gas pedel does not hold idle


these trucks are equipped with an idle speed control motor. What you're describing sounds like that part has stopped working. The part is designed to maintain idle when gas pedal is released. Now if you hear an audible hissing noise under the hood, then theres a vacuum leak which can cause the same problem, but it sounds like the idle control motor. Good luck.

1996 ford explorer stalls like it ran out of gas


It sounds like a weak fuel pump is causing the occasional stalling, particularly when attempting acceleration at normal driving speeds. It's not unusual for it to idle with no problem if the pump is weak. Also, check the fuel lines to.from the fuel pump. If all else fails, you might consider adding an auxiliary fuel pump to counter the weak OEM pump.

I would suggest you have the fuel pressure monitored while driving, this takes special equipment. Also have a functional test run on the engines automatic idle speed control system, you could have a defective idle speed control valve.

1999 ford explorer starts, but will not stay started unless foot on gas pedal


SOUNDS LIKE THE IDLE IS TOO LOW! YOU MAY NEED TO IDLE IT UP JUST A LITTLE! YOU CAN EASILY DO THIS AT THE THROTTLE PLATE UNDER THE HOOD! THERE IS A SMALL BOLT, OR SCREW LOCATED ON THE BACK SIDE OF THAT PLATE! TURN IT CLOCKWISE, AND IT WILL RAISE THE IDLE!

I just replaced the drive belt, idler pully and tensioner on my 96 ford explorer and now its stalling. It wasn't stalling before this happened. The engine stays running as long as I have my foot on the gas...


that has nothing to do with that,make sure all is connected like the mass air flow sensor and sensor on the intake tube it under it hard to see. and also if battery was unhooked then may need to reset idle, just keep foot on gas for a few minutes if that still does not help then replace the idle air controlm valve, hope this helps.heres a diagram to help locate parts.4627f3e.gif

It cranks but will not idle stalls out, i have to keep my foot on the gas for it to run, not sure if the fulel filter needs replacing or if its something else


had the same problem on 1999 4.0 explorer. Changed the lower intake gaskets. That was the problem in cold weather. Took time to change but it really was not that hard to do. Another very simular problem is the IAC idle air control valve. They need sprayed out every now and then. Two hex head screws an 1 plug hold it in. I used break cleaner.
