2006 Ford Explorer Q&A
2006 Ford Explorer Question: Engine Missing
I have a 2006 Ford Explorer, when I'm driving down the road at 50-60 mph the truck hesitates. When I go up hills it hesitates, when I go to give it gas to pass someone it hesitates. We have done a complete tune-up, plugs, wires, oil, oil filter, fuel filter and it's still doing it. It is getting worse everyday that I drive it. - Daneal

mine doing the same. have changed throttle body assembly. this cured it for a week then it started back. trying maf sensor now...freaky stuff. dealer is baffled.has anyone fixed this yet? it happens at 2300rpm in overdrive every time pulling a grade uphill..all the components run off a voltage reading. I think its apparent that a lot is going on at that rpm. Its the rpm most folks drive at on highways. it is the same time overdrive locks in. It really isnt a miss per say more of a flat spot where the computer hesitates on what to do shift or dont shift. excellerate or not? anyone got a clue? And there is no engine codes showing !!!!!! - Visitor
its missing when i get into normal temp
