FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001 car safety problem was reported on Sept 24, 2005.FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . 2001 explorer sport cut off four times after i started it. after getting it to start, the vehicle wouldn't accelerate any faster than 20 mph, then it would slow down to almost a complete stop (in traffic!). the accelerator was extremely resistant to the touch. i took it to capital ford in raleigh, nc and informed them i thought it was the cruise control cable (determined this from research). i was told it was the idle air control valve and there was nothing wrong with the cruise control. four days went by and the cruise control stopped working altogether. i took the vehicle back to capital ford to be told it was the cruise control cable. i informed them this was an on-going issue with this make/model and the 2001 explorer sport had been recalled to have this part fixed. the staff at capital ford said ford had not announced a recall and that the information i gathered was just a "site's" opinion. i need to know if, in fact, this part has been recalled and if i have a claim against ford to have it repaired/replaced at their cost. thank you for your help in this matter. it has been very frustrating dealing with capital ford on this issue. i've spent $689.70 only to be told i'll now have to spend another $100 (+) to fix what i took the vehicle in for to repair in the first place. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 57867 miles.

FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001 car safety problem was reported on Nov 15, 2006.FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . transmission failure. i have a 2001 ford explorer sport 2wd. at 109000 miles one day i was driving it on the freeway, and i noticed that the o/d light is flashing. i tried to turn it off, but it wouldn't. i exited from the freeway an i parked the car at the nearby gas station trying t o find out what was the problem. i turned the engine off for a few minutes,and then i turned it back on,and the o/d light went off. i thought it was finished, but it wasn't. i started driving for about 10 minutes the o/d light came back on, and the transmission shifts hardly from one gear to another. the next day i took the car to the transmission shop to check what is going wrong. from my house to the shop about 25 minutes drive, the o/d light started flashing. at the transmission shop they pulled the code (p0....) , and the inspector said there a malfunction inside of the transmission, something related to the torque converter. to fix it they give me an estimate of $2500 . and i m not currently under warranty. i've been maintaining this car as much as i can. but it is shocking to see the transmission going at this mileage. ford must recall this issue. if not they should take car of the repair cost. this is really a shame! my car has been repaired yet, because i can't afford the cost of that repair. i'm hoping that ford will look at the case. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 109000 miles.

FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001 car safety problem was reported on Nov 04, 2008.FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with VISIBILITY:GLASS, SIDE/REAR . i was on miramar rd. & my back window in my 2001 ford explorer exploded. not a tiny, little crack, but a loud, terrifying explosion with flying glass. thank god i was on my way to pick up my 9 year old niece & 4 yr old nephew and they were not already in my back seat. glass would have flew into their head on the back seat or i could have gotten into a possible accident. the glass did not reach the front, but was all over the cargo area of the car, inside and outside. (i took some pictures) i pulled over and luckily a man at a local auto shop helped me tape the hanging parts with glass to the car and clean up the glass so i can get the vehicle home. i was in complete shock. as i looked online for what to do and ford information i found similar instances. apparently, i wasn't alone in this situation. this is an ongoing problem with the explorers and in all situations ford is refusing the responsibility. first, i contacted the local poway perry ford service department and was told by christine that unless i wanted to spend around $450 there was nothing she or anyone can do. next, i contacted ford customer care center where pat and her supervisor robert (66360) gave me the warranty speech and a few different websites to research for recalls issues as to get me off of the phone. i let them know that this is a very dangerous situation, for which neither really cared to comment on and kept riveting back to the manual. i am very disappointed in the way i was spoken to and this situation in general. this is a very dangerous situation that can result in possible accidents involving death. i would like for ford to not only resolve my issue by fixing my back window without any charges, but also do some research and figure out what it is that is causing this in all the cases that were presented. *tr .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FMYU60E81U.

FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2006.FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . at 2100-2300 rpm on acceleration a pinging sound is heard that sounds like spark knock (detonation). the actual cause is from defective timing chain guides which allows slack in the timing chains (4.0 engines has one in front and one in rear) and is causing it to rattle and eat away at the guides. this is commonly known as the "rattle of death" on the ford 4.0 engines because once the plastic on the guides gets eaten away by the loose timing chain, it eats into the metal support and create metal shavings throughout the engine which will cause failure, if the chain does not fall off first. this is a well known and well documented problem due to cheap timing chain guides. *tr.Mileage was 83275 miles.

Ford Explorer Sport 2001 Power Train Review #10551420

FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001 car safety problem was reported on July 24, 2013.FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with POWER TRAIN . this has occurred multiple times since i've had the vehicle. i know enough about vehicles to know this is not normal in the early years of 125,000 miles and routine maintenance. when i accelerate from a stopped position the rpm's go up to about 3,000 or so but the vehicle does not accelerate. the o/d light will flash and the vehicle, when it does accelerate, is "sluggish". when i pull over and turn off the vehicle, then turn it back on, it seems to reset the light so that it is no longer illuminated but eventually the issue with the lack of acceleration comes back within the next few miles and usually is a problem between 1st and 2nd gear. it happens like clock work when i leave a driveway and enter traffic which puts me in fear of being hit by an oncoming vehicle. this is definitely a potential hazard and in an attempt to diagnose the problem i have come across multiple entries on "blogs" with similar symptoms that usually begin around 120,000-150,000 miles. in my opinion, the issue causing the problem, and the potential risk to my life and others, should have been recalled years previous. this seems to be too common. vehicles, in general, should not be operating like this unless there is an extreme lack of care in regards to maintenance. on another note... i've noticed that the various faulty parts that have been recalled are "quick fixes" which translates to me as "cheap fixes". if a company produces a product that fails before it's time or causes danger to it's customers, they should definitely ensure that the problem be remedied. so "man up" ford and address the issue- or the alternative is to quit producing garbage.

FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001 car safety problem was reported on Apr 05, 2014.FORD EXPLORER SPORT 2001, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . my wife was driving on a residential road around 30 mph when she attempted to brake. she was unable to stop the vehicle by braking. she said the truck was bucking wildly as though it was attempting to maintain it's 30 mph speed. she put it in neutral and pulled over yet the truck continued to idle as though it were driving 30 miles per hour. she turned the vehicle off. i arrived 15 minutes later and without touching the gas pedal turned the vehicle on and it immediately rev'd as she described so i shut it off. i then pumped the gas pedal (with the truck in the off position) assuming it may be stuck then restarted the vehicle. it started and subsequently drove normally. i took it to my mechanic and he discovered nothing. nothing in the computer history and nothing wrong with the speed system (pedal, cable, throttle, throttle body...) i did some research on-line and discovered an nhtsa report (nhtsa action number : pe05037) of a possible bad speed control cable for this vehicle where the teflon cover could comes off and bind at the gas pedal holding the pedal open and unable to retract. we attempted to locate the replacement cable only to find that ford no longer makes the original or the replacement which we find utterly unbelievable. no more exist anywhere in the us. i can find parts for my 1992 ford mustang easier. not sure why they stopped making the cable which makes this more interesting. my next step is to have my mechanic remove the cable to see if there is a teflon build up near the gas pedal. note: we have no clear proof that the cable is the issue yet at this point the fact that it cleared when i pumped the gas pedal with the vehicle in the off position leaves suspicion that this could be the same issue noted in the nhtsa pe05037 report. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 65000 miles.

my 95 ford exploere engine surges when turn my air conditioner on

Ihave a 1994 ford probe which has started to idle very low and stalls at times. It is a 4 cyl. w/ air and a 5 speed. any ideas? I replaced the fuel filter, air flow meter and added HEAT to gas tank to dry and clean fuel system. I think my pcv valv

should a standard transmission truck start when it is in gear without the clucth engaged?

should a 2005 standard transmission ford ranger start when in gear without the clutch engaged?

96 Ford F250 Emergency brake lever gets caught on the auto adjustment spring, causing brakes to be permanently engaged, also allowing the parking break lever to rub against the hub, which can cut through over time.

try pushing the pedals button closer to you. you must have the pedal adjustment button to the left of the radio, looks like a foot, that brings the pedals more inward towards the driver. hope it helped. or look carefully if a wire has corroded. it

i would check ur multi switch on ur stearing colum

on the pedal

whats the sound

Just bought an '06 E-350 van. Left d'ship got on highway and noticed shimmy when I got to 60....same problem????

that happened to me last night! If you rock the car back and for while shifting then it should release the safety lock!

why does it take turning off the veh. while pulling in on the shifter arm, them starting it again while still holding it inwards ever so slightly??
