99 explorer sport
I have a 1999 Explorer sport with a 4.0 and 144000 miles.The truck starts and runs great, but currently is parked do to the fact that when the truck reaches operating temp. or after idling for about 20 min, it starts to stall and make like a pre-ignition type dieseling sound and completely stalls out and is unable to re-start until it cools off. I did notice that right before it stalled that the oil pressure needle would bounce. Also I get no engine light when the stalling occures
