Engine Performance problem
2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
My problem has been going on for nearly a year now. It doesn't seem to be getting any worse, but at the same time, no better. My Explorer has no "pick up" after idling, even for a brief time, like for a red light. After the car "gets going" its fine. But at every stop, it struggles each time to gain momentum. The only temporary "cure" is to turn the car off. If I am at a red light, and turn the car off, just briefly, the car is fine temporarily.
It is beyond aggravating, and I have since had to replace the starter, but the mechanic I took it to couldn't figure out what else was wrong. In failed attempts to fix the problem, I have had the air filter changed, the fuel filter, and had the fuel injectors cleaned out.
Any help greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
