Sometimes in gear sometimes not. It acted like it was flooded then would sound like no gas at all. I'd check all the...

    2007 Ford Explorer blowing fuse #43 (coil) when accelerating

    Hi everybody! My 2007 Ford Explorer XLT (6 cyl, 114k miles) often blows fuse #43 when I accelerate hard or medium-hard from a stop -- causing the coil to lose power and the vehicle to stall, often in a busy intersection, which is fun. I can go a few days without blowing a fuse if I accelerate...

    2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition 4.6L V8 4x4. The stalling issue is most common at stop signs, when the vehicle is in drive and idling at operating temperature. It has occurred in park while cold, however. I immediately thought IACV since Fords have that issue, and it was shuddering a...

    Quick question about stalling!

    I can do things to make my car stall at demand! For example, if I turn on the engine, switch into gear, and then press on the knob to deactivate AC (with climate control all the way on HOT), the car will stall almost always. I also noticed it stalled a few times pressing on the brakes...
