2001 ford explorer problems

Asked by Sep 19, 2014 at 10:46 AM about the 2001 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

sometimes feels like anti lock breaks are stuck when I slow down and then it will not hardly go for a few minutes, at other times when come to stop, it will sound like the motor is racing

There are probably two different issues here. If brake caliper(s) are sticking, that's not ABS problem. Possible vacuum leak, unmetered air entering intake causing the engine to race. Are there any warning lights lit on dash?

Check your tranny fluid, see if it is discolored or has a burnt smell, I am suspicious of trans problem not a braking problem.
