I feel your pain. I have a 94 Explorer XLT and I have the same problem only that it would die whenever it feels like it, or doesn't start when it doesn't feel like starting. Also, I had it die on me while driving down the road. Sometimes it would re-catch and go. Other times I would have to pull off the road then try to start it. First you want to figure out if it is a fuel issue or a spark issue. Then, start with the cheapest things first. If it's a spark issue, I would begin by checking all wires(including plug wires), relays and sensors. Then check your coil pack followed by your ignition control module. All these tests, including tests for the fuel system are fairly easy and you can use a manual to guide you. Haynes makes a decent manual. Good luck. I'm still working on mine.

Check for spark at the wire end going to the spark plug atleast two of them, then comeback for more if needed.

Give me the type of Fuel and Ignition system it has.

I have another post.I just moved it to the top of the forum "94 Explorer Ignition Problem". My next try is checking the crankshaft position sensor and the main PCM relay. I started with changing plugs, wires, air filter. Then the ignition control module, then the ignition coil pack. I know it's not a fuel problem. Also, my battery and alternator are new and in working condition. I don't lose power, I just lose ignition.
