Question type: Shopping & Pricing

04 ford explorer shuts off you turn on.
Timing chains replaced, new air filter, new
plugs and cables. It ran great for 2 weeks. I
don't have original key remote and use key
to open and start car and noticed when lock
door from inside rear tail lights flash with no
sound when door is closed. Then after fill
gas from gas station always use. When car
accelerated past 50mph lost power, service
engine light flashed and shut off. Now it
shuts off right after you start it.
