Ford explorer stalling, sputtering and dying on acceleration

Possible fuel pressure issue. Is the check engine light on? If so, have the codes scanned for problamatic sensors. ( MAP/MAF). If no check engine light on then do a fuel pressure test to verify proper pressure. Does it run well at lower speeds/idle?

2011 Ford Explorer Limited Edition. The flashers won't turn on, but everything else works.

Question edited for clarity, 'explore' to Explorer.Question moved to category.Jeff our Pro Technician and electronics wizard provides the answer.Jeff Armer Jun 12, 2022Sorry Andrew , doesn't have a flasher relay . The smart junction box supplies a powerPrinciples of OperationThe smart junction box (SJB) monitors the multifunction switch position by sending multiple voltage reference signals to the multifunction switch. When the multifunction switch is in the LH or RH TURN positions, or the hazard lamp switch is engaged, that input signal is routed to ground.When the SJB receives an input from the multifunction switch indicating a request for a turn signal or hazard lamps, the SJB then supplies voltage to the appropriate turn lamps.The SJB utilizes a protective circuit strategy for many of its outputs (for example, the headlamp output circuit). Output loads (current level) are monitored for excessive current (typically short circuits) and are shut down (turns off the voltage or ground provided by the module) when a fault is detected. A continuous DTC is stored at that time for the fault. The circuit will then reset after an ignition cycle or customer demand of the function (switching the component on, 30-minute battery saver being energized). When an excessive circuit load occurs several times, the module shuts down the output until a repair procedure is carried out. At the same time, the continuous DTC that was stored on the first failure will not clear by a command to clear the continuous DTCs. The module will not allow this code to be cleared or the circuit restored to normal until a successful on-demand self-test proves that the fault has been repaired. After the on-demand self-test has successfully completed (no on-demand DTCs present), the continuous DTC will have been cleared and the circuit function will return.Jeff Armer Jun 12, 2022Hooking up a scan tool an checking for DTC'SSmart Junction Box (SJB) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Chart DTC Description ActionB1499 Lamp Turn Signal Left Circuit Failure Go To Pinpoint Test M .B1502 Lamp Turn Signal Left Circuit Short to Ground Go To Pinpoint Test M .B1503 Lamp Turn Signal Right Circuit Failure Go To Pinpoint Test M .B1506 Lamp Turn Signal Right Circuit Short to Ground Go To Pinpoint Test M .B2048 Left Rear Turn Lamp Circuit Short to Ground For Mountaineer, Go To Pinpoint Test M .For Explorer or Explorer Sport Trac, REFER to Stoplamps in this section.B2049 Left Rear Turn Lamp Circuit Open For Mountaineer, Go To Pinpoint Test M .For Explorer or Explorer Sport Trac, REFER to Stoplamps in this section.B2050 Right Rear Turn Lamp Circuit Short to Ground For Mountaineer, Go To Pinpoint Test M .For Explorer or Explorer Sport Trac, REFER to Stoplamps in this section.B2051 Right Rear Turn Lamp Circuit Open For Mountaineer, Go To Pinpoint Test M .For Explorer or Explorer Sport Trac, REFER to Stoplamps in this section.B2071 Hazard Switch Signal Short to Ground If the hazard lamps are inoperative, Go To Pinpoint Test N .If the hazard lamps are always on, Go To Pinpoint Test O .B2281 Right Turn Switch Short to Ground Go To Pinpoint Test L .B2282 Left Turn Switch Short to Ground Go To Pinpoint Test L .All other DTCs — REFER to Section 419-10 .

Question edited for clarity, full year make model Question moved to sub category. It appears to have history. A bit worrying you say 'kinda changed the filter and fluid'. Most are sealed for life, and the amount of fluid is critical. If you drain, you measure what comes out and replace with the same amount of the right type of ATF.

How to change a 2000 ford explorer bypass hose?

You have to remove the tensioner assembly, not just the tensioner pulley, but the whole assembly, in order to access the plastic bypass hose.
Be very careful, as these pipes get old, the plastic becomes brittle, and possibly the flange end will break off and remain in the block when you remove the pipe, check the block opening carefully to remove all of the remaining flange.
Also, be very careful when removing the lover pipe nipple into the engine block, if you try to pry the tensioner assembly off the block, you will probably snap off the machined nipple that locates into the block, Ask me how I know!!! Good Luck, it can be done but you need to move carefully and deliberately. (by the way, a rebuilt tensioner assembly costs about $80 US, the pipe is about $6. New tensioner assembly comes with the pipe)

My 2004 Ford Explorer died while I was driving and now it won't start I just replaced the starter two days ago

Strange things happen when you take away control of things like fans from the controls of the modules controlling them via sensors. You need an auto-electrician with a pro grade scan tool.
