I posted a few days ago and no one has answered, can someone help me PLEASE. I have a 04 explorer 4l v6 4x4 with 41000kms. Monday I put in gas, drive home parked it. Tuesday morning I started it with my remote start, it ran for 10 seconds then stalled. Started it again and it was fine. I have noticed since then that when I come to a stop it idels rough. No codes appear. So then I thought it was the spark plugs. Went to Ford purchased factory platinum plugs ($70) and changed them. Not the problem. I really didn't need to change them because the factory platinum plugs that were in there were fine. I am wondering if I got bad gas or is here another problem. Can someone help, I just bought this explorer a month ago!

First start, is check the idle air control valve find it and take it out and clean with carb cleaner-next on line EGR/DPFE the whole enchalada on this system-it sounds like it -we won't know till we check it out.

Sorry I didn't see you, I was in this forum yesterday-well you got what you wanted-let me know what's happening, I'll be more happy to help.

Do you have the ability to scan for misfire by the cylinder?
Then you ll have an idea where the hesitation coming from
And if you think it s the gas
Have you tried the fuel additive

This is our first FORD and we have no idea where the iac is. Can you send me an engine picture so we can locate it. Someone said it was on top of the TB, but there is nothing on the top, only on the side. This is a 04 Explorer 4L V6 XLS and I have only had this vehicle of a month, I just bought it. Factory warrenty was up in April so if I take it in, this may cost me more than my payments. Hell I haven't even made my first payment. You really gotta help me here. :(

The IACV will look like this below and it will be somewhere within the throttle body-
