The O2 sensor is BAD and needs to be replaced. Whats happening is when the engine is cold the sensor sends an air to fuel mixture signal to the computer that satisfys the engine's requirements at start, but when the engine heats up the sensor then send a leanner mixture (To much Fuel) that the engine can't burn off so the Sparkplugs get wet and misfire stalling the engine.
Fuel Pressure Regulator - would do that -
does my 1996 pontiac ga stall out in park
yes once the ignition control module heats up it would cause the vehicle to stall. usually after it cools down the vehicle will restart again.
The thermostat control engine temperature. If it fails the engine can run hot or cold - that would happen long before over-heating caused the engine to stall.
Why would it stall or almost stall in Reverse but not in Drive? How long since it's received a tune-up and thorough check-up? How is the compression?
That would be a wing stall, or just, 'stall'. This kind of stall has nothing to do with the aircraft's engine, if it has one.
If you have a loose spark plug, your car will not stall unless maybe your engine has 3 cylinders. If you have a 6 or 8 cylinder engine you would just loose some power and your engine would run a little rough.
After replacing minor components that would cause the vehicle to stall such as the fuel filter. Advance the ignition timing a few degrees and the engine will run better and there will be no more stall.
Driving through flood water would cause the ignition to fail and stall the engine.
My guess would be a defective ignition switch.
That would depend on what year of Ford Explorer and which engine you have ( my 1995 Ford Explorer with the 4.0 liter OHV , V6 engine has ( 2 oxygen sensors )
Had a Jeep in the shop here with that problem last week and it turned out to be low fuel pressure. Try running a fuel pressure test. The Jeep would idle ok but when you tried to accelerate the engine would stall.
The year, make, model and engine info would help but a serious vacuum leak could do that.
BUst your windows, pop your tires, stall your engine
if your fuel pressure is low it will also back fire and stall when it is warmed up. check fuel filter and fuel pressure. check with a scan tool and see what the temp sensor is reading (You cant do this by looking at the dash guage)
I'm not a mechanic / technician , but if you mean the 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine , I would say ( no ) From what I have read there are ( 3 ) different engine blocks for the Ford 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine ( which is an Over Head Valve / pushrod design engine ) ( 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorer ) ( 1995 and 1996 Ford Explorer ) ( 1997 to 2000 Ford Explorer )
No, it would not. There are many things that could cause a stall at idle. The throttle plate could be dirty as well as the mass air flow sensor. You did not mention the kind of car or engine size. Is the check engine light on, is it when the engine is warmed up or cold?
I'm not a mechanic / technician but as far as I know , the answer would be NO The Ford 4.0 liter OHV engine in the Ford Explorer used ( 3 ) different engine blocks ( 1991 to 1994 ) ( 1995 and 1996 ) ( 1997 to 2000 )
engine stalls at low speed
More info such as the year and engine size would help.
overheating it would. Or if it was stick not being in the right gear trying to find the system causing it would help, if the air intake or filter was so clogged it couldn't suck air it could stall, and low fuel pressure could also make it stall rather slowly. Bad electrical connections could cause a quicker stall.
Usually, a jeep's engine stalls in idle mode because of a battery power fault or because there is no gas. However, it is common for any car to stall when it has not been running for a period of time and the engine is cold.
Thomas will run over Dora and explode so Dora the explorer
If the engine runs cold you might try replacing the thermostat. I had a similar problem with a Plymouth van, at low rpms, turning corners,,, it would stall.
