1994 Ford Explorer Problems


Asked by Feb 28, 2016 at 03:55 PM about the 1994 Ford Explorer 4 Dr XLT SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My dad has a 94 Ford Explorer and it has problems accelerating. From a
stop it takes a while to try and accelerate and it feels as if you need to floor
it so It can start speeding up but it'll rev up and start making a ticking noise.
If you try and tap the gas pedal when it's turned on it feels as if it's stuck
and the check engine light turns on once the car starts moving. The exhaust
sounds like it may have a leak too but I was more curious about why it'll
have issues accelerating.

Hello again Delagrim! It sounds like it might have an intake leak if it is having acceleration issues, and given the ticking noise. I would run it by Auto Zone and have them read the code, Im guessing P0507 most likely. I hope things are going good! I just saw you posted a photo of your saturn!
