When driving down the road, I will push on the gas and it studders and when going up hills it studders. What is the problem?

Asked by SNM2015 Nov 05, 2015 at 10:02 AM about the 2001 Ford Explorer XLS 4WD

Question type: General

We have replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs, wires, and air filter, but it still does this. I cant figure out what else it could be. Maybe something to do with the fuel injector?

Is the check engine light on? If so have the codes read to see what is wrong.


eliminate the coil pack as the problem. Use a multi-meter and check the primary and secondary resistance of the coil. You can obtain the resistance measurements from the net.
