I have a 97 explorer sport with 212000 miles and I had the same problem, clean throttle body with throttle body cleaner (do not use carb cleaner)

I have a 1997 Exploer Sport 212000 miles, same thing started to happen to me. The first thing I tried, and the cheapest, was throttle body cleaner (do not use carb cleaner) Icleaned the butter-fly and all around and it starts just fine now.
