Engine Performance problem
2006 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 32000 miles
I bought my vehicle used about 5 months ago and luckily it still has manufacture warranty however it is due to expire on Sunday.
Lately I've noticed that my truck has this big jerk when I switch to Drive or Reverse from being parked all day or night. Also noticed that while I have been driving and after being idle sometimes the engine sounds VERY accelerated. So loud that I can feel it as Im driving and hear it with music on.
I took it to get serviced and they did find a problem with the transmission so I thought both problems were related to the transmission issue. Wrong, I still have the acceleration problem. I had the problem again yesterday and I had already been driving for about 25 mintues. I stopped at a red light and when I turned I heard the loud accelerated noise again. My truck is still going but I failed to look at the RPM Gage to see if it was going high. I also noticed since the recent repair, that it seems as though I am having to press on the gas a lot more while I am on the highway because I feel like if I dont have my foot down on the peddle hard enough it decelerates. I don't know what could be causing it!
have the same problem?
