Ford Explorer Year 2000 - Stalls when I get off the Freeway

#1

Eddie Baurer Explorer - purchased in 2006, has always stalled after driving on the freeway for 15 minutes or more when I get off and come to a stop. Ford dealership has charged me about $1,000 and 4 visits, but never respolved. Independents have cleaned the throttle body, changed the ERC valve, fixed air leaks in the engine, new plugs and wires . . . but the problem persists. Please Advise !!


#2

If nobody has cleaned or replaced the Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF), that is definitely something to look at.
And, if your Explorer has one of those aftermarket K & N air filters, I can tell you that those filters are a frequent source of MAF problems.

Maybe your locking torque converter isn’t unlocking as it should.


#4

Put the transmission in neutral before stopping. If it, then, doesn’t stall, it’s the torque converter lock up not unlocking.
