#1 of 28 95 4.0 stumbles
Dec 19, 2007 (3:48 am)
i have a 95 4.0 expl. i bought it 3 yrs ago with an external water leak at the head gaskets at 95k so i changed the gaskets and a week and a half later it developed a miss or a stumble under a load. this started while on a cross crountry trip (tx to mich). Once i got to my destination it was -17 degrees and the check engine light would come on for 10 min then go out for 30 min, then quit once it got above 0. I figured something was freezing up. I changed the plug wires and the fuel filter it didn't help my problem. i then drove it back to tx and drove it like this for 2 more yrs, while changing parts when i can. I changed the idle air control valve and the plugs a second time in 20k miles with platnuim. I had thought it was the trans but a trans shop told me that it was in the motor not the trans. i changed the coil pack and just last week the fuel pump quit so i have changed that and the filter again. still the same prob, it has been 45k miles since this has been started and i am ready to pull my hair out. Has anyone had simular problems and how were they fixed???

is there a way to test that?? it is 55 dollars and i would like to test it if i can to make sure that is it. i have planned to take it a dealer to have them tell me what it could be when i can get the money together. but if i can test this it might save me a ton of money too thanks

hey i have a 95 xlt basicly its sputters when you start it an when you accelerate you have to find the fine line on the gas or itl top out 20 when u mash the gas an sometimes it dies an cranks wont start , i was told it was the idle air module on the side of the throttle body i want to be sure thats the problem before i pay a hundred bucks for a paper wieght an i was gunna have it scanned but the engine light kicks on for a quick min an then clears the codes on its own

I have replace the fuel filter, fuel pump, plugs & plug wires and the vehicle is still running rough! Had it to a shop & the scanner said was misfiring on cylinder 4. Help this is frustrating to have spent so much money! It does run better after I put new plug wires on but still not the greatest. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?
