1997 Ford Explorer
Hi, all. I am sandy58, owner of a 1997 Ford Explorer & I am in need of advice concerning my car. I live in the North East of Scotland, born in Glasgow..a long time ago. :-)
One problem I have here is navigating around this site. I logged in, introduced myself..again... and end up here so if I break any rules, apologies in advance, folks.
The problem I'm having with my car is, a) the engine stalls at low revs, particularly when I am reversing/manouvering. b)Full lock on steering (reverse/forward) results in engine cutting out. Idling speed fluctuates wildly, usually ending with engine stopping.
As you will understand, it's scary when the power steering stiffens up and brakes fail. This is my first Ford Explorer and, apart from these failings, I love it. I have replaced the flow control. Cleaned all visible electrical plugs/sockets. What I need is advice from experienced Explorer owners etc. Thanks in advance for any tips, advice.
