Thank you for your response to my previous question. I also have an additional Explorer Sport (kids car) that won't remain idling after you start it. (This is spuratic, sometimes it will remain running and sometimes not, always happens when it has been sitting overnight and you try and start it in the morning) As long as I have the gas pedal depressed it will run but as soon as I release the pedal it stalls. It also seems to run rough and gets very bad gas mileage, Also I can hear something that kicks on and off frequently when it is running. No idicators come on on the instrument panel? Can you help?

Thank you,
Curtis
