    06 explorer 4.6 2WD - acceleration issues at low speed

    V8 explorer 2006 - 270k miles The problem I'm having is when accelerating. Any light pressure on the gas causes a stutter/vibration from what I think is the transmission. Any significant press on the gas it accelerates fine. Good response. No hesitation and actually gets up nicely.. no issues...

    No acceleration after warm up

    94 Explorer Sport, 4.0, manual trans - Driving short trips, everything works fine - acceleration, smooth running - after about 10 miles of highway driving at ~ 1500 RPM, it starts bogging down on hills and if I try to accelerate, it acts as if it's running out of gas. If I back off the...

    Loud beeeeeep when accelerating hard

    I have a 2015 Explorer XLT and when I accelerate rapidly a loud single long beep sounds. I have cleared all of the My key settings, and I don't have some of the extra features such as parking assist/collision alert/or even blind spot sensors or whatever it's called. For the life of me I cannot...

    Accelerate = Fan shuts off

    There are several threads describing a loss of heat or a/c when the engine is under load. The problem 99% of the time is a loss of vacuum during acceleration that the vacuum reservoir cannot maintain (its sole purpose) vacuum and the air doors close temporarily with no vacuum to keep'em open...

    2003 4.0 XLT Rear End Roar

    The rear end on my XLT started making a "roaring" noise when accelerating. It only happens above 35 mph and when my foot's on the gas, as soon as I let off it stops. The previous owner installed a new $2500 transmission and sold it to me when he got tired of the truck because the engine started...

    Speaker noise

    How in the world do I fix the noise coming from the speakers that is directly affected by the acceleration of the engine? It appears to only be one speaker and it is driving me nuts. 2004 ford explorer xlt upgraded the sound system but I believe I had the problem even with the...

    5R55E Trans - RPM's constant, speed increasing

    I have a 1999 Sport and when I'm accelerating (like on an on-ramp or something) I noticed the engine speed will stay constant at about 3000RPM, while the vehicle speed increases until it reaches a shift point and then it shifts fine. I can feel it going through the gears, but under acceleration...

    Explorer 4.6 V8 ... Stuttering/jerking on acceleration

    When accelerating my V8 2002 Explorer stutters like there is a fuel supply problem. I don't believe it is a diff or transmission issue as it doesn't happen all the time ... only when stepping on the gas. Has anyone else had this problem and more importantly, fixed the problem.

    Why does my A/C decline while I accelerate?

Wow I am sitting still is normal but if I am getting on the interstate on the on ramp and have to accelerate quickly the...

    Okay, a little background on my driving... I am an aggressive driver with a heavy foot, always complete maintenance on time and fix issues when they come up. If I could I'd go back to a sports car, but with a family in tow... I'm happy driving my V8 Explorer. My Vehicle: 2003 Ford Explorer...

    revving weird and accelerating on its own...

    Hey there, I currently came in contact with a 1996 4.0 4wd automatic Ford Explorer. It works just fine and has no leaks. My buddy is going to get rid of it because he said that it did not idle well... I thought I would take a look at it. I changed the Idle Air Control Valve. This did not help at...

    Noise while turning and accelerating

    Yesterday my explorer started making a noise. The noise seems to be coming from the front driver side wheel area. The noise is more noticeable when accelerating while turning and gets softer when the wheel is straightened while driving. I've looked all over the wheel area and don't see anything...
