There may come a time where I may have
to accelerate in reverse to avoid an

Ok, I wasn't trying to be sarcastic. really. Best is to follow TransAm77 suggestion. I didn't understand you meant it will only go backwards as in idle, sorry 'bout that.

What happens when you give it gas? Dose the engine rev up but the Explorer does not or will the engine just not build up RPM?

Evening F.N. It's a confusing question. That's why I asked for clarification.
