99 ford explorer 4.0 sohc

Asked by Thirdworld85 Jun 03, 2019 at 09:54 AM about the 1999 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck lost power while driving and it was hard to
press the brake to stop when I did get to stop it would
stall on me. I can barely get it up to 20 miles an hour
and it's making a loud noise any ideas

When the engine stops, the power assisted brakes will not function and will require more force to stop the car. "ed" is right, you are probably in limp mode and need to have the cause checked out by a reliable shop.

Thanks of course that is not the answer I was hoping for but I kind of figured it was something like that the bad part is it won't even start now
