Just recently my 94 explorer w/v-6 has been having stallling problems. It happens every few days usually after a gas fill-up. The truck will die while going down the road. Attempts 2 start right off the bat dont work but if I let it set for 30-45 seconds it will start w/no problem. There is some hesitation in the throttle sometimes but not all the time. I have used a fuel treatment didnt help. My next thing was going to be 2 replace fuel filter. If anyone has any answers 2 what is going on I would sure appreciate them

It has an automatic tranny 150,000 miles on it. The problem only happens every once and awhile. I would say probably twice a week sometimes.

Is it the 4.0 V6? Does it have a distributer or coil packs? Very important to descide the problem. I suspect an ignition module. Does the check engine light come on?

Another weird thing happened. Dont know if the problems are related but yesterday the truck died on me 6 times on the way home from work. The new problem is: I tried to operate the a c the fan would not kick on w/a c or heat. Perplexed I got home and stayed for awhile. Went back out to the grocery store and guess what a c started working again. Like I said dont know if problems are related but I thought it was damned strange. Going this weekend to have the codes scanned.

Often ford have a fuel pressure regulator problem. Have you repleced the fuel filter?

Also the Mass air flow sensor has been known to get debris on one of the sensors and it causes a stalling problem.

It has a security torx but you can defeat it with a small screw driver. Remove it and check for any trash even small as a hair. I had a like problem and it turned out to be a cat hair across one of the tiny sensors. I used carb cleaner, let it dry and there was flawless performance. Replace the air filter while you are in the area. Give it a whirl
