My 2000 explorer sport just died on me on the freeway. What could be wrong?


Asked by Jul 28, 2016 at 09:35 PM about the 2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 explorer sport just died on me on the freeway.  I waited about 15 minutes then it started up and drove for another mile then died again.  When it dies the oil gauge goes to zero and I start to lose power stearing.  All other gauges and dashboard lights continue to work.  Do you think this could be a fuel pump issue, battery or something else?  I can start it now but don't know what to do because it could die at any minute.  Thanks for the help.
