My 2002 Ford Explorer cut off, I don't know why!! HELP!

Asked by Sep 19, 2015 at 01:11 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLT

Question type: General

I was driving down the road and car cut off and wouldnt start. I have had
previous trouble with it sputtering and a gas smell coming back into my
vehicle but this didnt start until I had a bad rear blow out. My transmission
fluid has not been changed or checked in past 6 years, due to being unable
to find someone with tool to change it from underneath. I have asked
around but still have no luck. My vehicle has been sitting for 8 months now
I want to know if it would be better to scrap it than try to fix it.

You've been without it for 8 months and it's 14 years old. I'd junk it or sell it as a parts vehicle and move on. HTH. -Jim
