because the gas cap is bad, it will not build pressure in the tank, nothing major, but will cause an annoying light.

A check engine light informs you that there is something wrong with the engine. After you run a diagnostic test, you will be able to tell what exactly is wrong.

You use a scan tool after repairing the cause of the code that turned the light on.

After the Explorer is scanned for trouble codes to diagnose and then repair the malfunction , then the check engine light can be reset

If your check engine light is staying on , that indicates that a malfunction has been detected with the emission control system . You need to have your Explorer scanned for any trouble codes in order to diagnose and repair the problem , then the light can be reset

It allows the OBD II scanner to connect to your Ford Explorer to " read " any trouble codes when the check engine light comes on for one thing

According to the 2000 Ford Explorer Owner Guide : No , a separate fuse for the check engine light is not listed

why is my ford sport trac run rough at idling. Being that the check engine light is on, start with having the codes read. Your local auto parts store can help with that at no cost.

sometimes after making a repair or replacement, the computer needs to be reset by a mechanic

Either your engine temperature is too high , your oil pressure is too low , or your gas gauge is at or near empty

my 2007 ford explorer sport trac has a check engine light on diagnosted as code PO741. What can I do to fix it.

The check engine light is the light shaped like an engine, or the light that states Check Engine (Soon). If this light comes on, it is time to see what the issue is with the engine.

It has a " check gage " light if the fuel gauge is at or near empty , the engine coolant temperature is high , or the engine oil pressure is low

If your check engine light is staying on with the engine running , a malfunction has been detected with the emission control system . Have your Explorer scanned for any trouble codes to diagnose and repair the problem

User Avatar

The light that shows an engine symbol is your check engine light . If the light stays on while the engine is running, the OBD II system has detected a possible problem with your emission system. If the light flashes on and off, an engine "miss" has been detected . Have your Explorer scanned for any trouble codes to find and then repair the problem.

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be a loose hose connection to the PVC valve.
