Question Need some Help!! Running Rough.

Drove the daughter's 2006 Explorer tonight for about 5 minutes in town. Suddenly it chugged then stalled. Started right back up but had no power when I stepped on the gas. I coasted back through town. Any ideas. She won't let me use her vehicle again anytime soon. Puzzled. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

I'm with lumberjack....sounds an awful lot like water in the gas.

Got nothing to lose, try the easy solution first, and welcome to fordtough.ca!

Thanks. That was my first thought, however I don't have that kind of luck.It turned out to be a throttle body sending unit and I'm now $355 lighter but it runs like new. Hope this helps someone else and thanks for the advice. I am pleased to be a member.

Does this mean your daughter gave you driving privileges again ?? lol

Glad to hear you got it looked after and are back up and running smoothly.
