2004 Ford Explorer Stalling

Asked by Mar 30, 2015 at 02:12 PM about the 2004 Ford Explorer XLS V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer with a 4.0. The rig will start but idles rough. After a while of idling it will die and not start back for a few minutes. While it is running you can hold the accelerator to the floor and it will not climb above 2000 RPM. Any ideas?

Will it still show a code if the service engine light is not on?

Possibly

But not definitely. Had the same problem with a neighbors 4.0 engine. No light on the dash. Reading the codes indicate four cylinders were misfiring. Not to say your problem is related to a tune-up, just saying some codes do not light up the light.
