2001 jeep Cherokee sport out of no where started sputtering and chugging, running rough and 10 mph was top speed go about 20 ft then die. Start up and same thing. Went about 1-2 miles like this.

to me, it sounds like fuel related problem.
Clogged fuel filter, bad (aged) fuel pump, or water in tank.

one thing I doubt is "Sputtering".
low fuel pressure don't do "Sputtering".

Why does my 2001 sport trac stall at a stop after a long trip

My guess, throttle positioning sensor is failing and won't hold when it's hot. this sets base idle.

2005 ford explorer spot trac acts like is running out of gas but has 1/2 tank


sounds like a combination bad vacuum leak and/or fuel. find the egr valve and temporarily plug the line going from and to it and test it, check all your vacuum connections, you would hear it hissing. those plastic vacuum connectors get brittle and crack about this time . Ive had a few electric fuel pumps fail that way, half dead. bout time for one of those. check fuel pressure also.if it threw a code and the check engine light is on then you can have the code read at autozone for free.

There is a hummimg comimg from the front forward drive train very loud rumbeling between 50 and 60 mph. Also abs sensor ligjt has been om for a while. 4 wheel works fine has been used in the snow all...

Probably your front hubs. One or both. Fords noted for hub replacement. I had mine replaced at 60000 miles. Fixed the rumbling noise. It's really an easy fix if your handy. If not then expect about 800.00 to a 1000.00. go to explorer forums and get video on how to replace hubs

Our 2001 Ford Explorer won't go anywhere when put into drive. It will start in 2nd then once over 20 miles an hour you can shift it back into drive. If you come to a stop light and it gets under 20 mph you...

This sounds like a shift solinoid. If that doesn't solve the problem then most likely the transmission is having internal problems and will need to be rebuilt. First check your fluid. That is the cheapest of all.

Well, I have a 2001 cavalier and it started to act odd.

Skyler here is your fix and it is simple and cost effective:

Replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). $30 to $40 if you do it yourself or $70 to $95 if you have a service station do it. This will fix all of your problems related to the TRAC OFF light and transmission shifting into low gear.

2003 Ford Sport Trac Cruise Control Sticking

I "HAD" the same problem but fixed it.

'03 Sport trac w/70,000 miles. Started around 60,000 mile mark with light flashing briefly, only engaging 1in 10 times. Also, I noticed slightly decreased gas mileage around the same time.

Cruise Control problem corrected itself when I replaced the spark plugs and wires. Owners manual reccomended replacing plugs and wires at 100K. Do yourself a favor and replace them early. They were very difficult to get out. I noticed arcing from wires to block and several areas of friction damage to insulation. Wrap new wires with sheathing and tie wraps to prevent friction problems in the future.
