JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
JA: What year is your Ford?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We have a 2006 ford explorer Eddie bower 4x4 with 6 cyl engine
. I accelerated hard from a stop sign and had a slight stumble. Coasted to my driveway and the engine stalled. Was able to restart a couple of times and get the car into the parking spot. Now it will not start. Diagnostics show code PO320. Have checked all connections and everything seems tight. Car has 87000 miles and has been well take cared for. I have taken the battery cable off to let the computer reset with no difference.
JA: Does the engine turn over? How old is the battery?
Customer: engine turns over fine. Battery is less than 6 mos old.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of. I have reviewed possible issues but would like to not have to change a bunch of parts - trial and error method - to get to the bottom of this. I guess one other thing - yesterday we had a screeching belt for no apparent reason. I replaced the tensioner and belt but the real problem turned out to be rubber or some other type of buildup in the upper pulley grooves. Just letting you know this so you know what part of the engine have been working around.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
