Re: V6 hesitation

I would assume being a 2006 it's under warranty so I'd take it to Ford and let them check it out. Sounds like maybe a sensor of some kind. As new as it is I'd be on Ford's as* about it.

Re: V6 hesitation

I wanted to ask you if you've driven a new ford with the drive by wire throttle, but I see you also own a new mustang and that has the same setup. I have not ran into a 06 v6 explorer with a hesitation problem, but every day ford seems to come up with new re-programs for the pcm that fixes problems like this. So take it down to the dealership and have a tech look at. hope this helps.
