There is information missing that will help in troubleshooting. First, what codes were indicated in the computer? Not just the numbers (I don't have a ref book handy), but what is the indicated fault? I've thrown money at issues in the past, only to find the light to come on again and have to go to AutoZone to pull the code, and it was usually the SAME code. Reply with the indicated symptom - my user name is texavette. One thing I CAN tell you is that it might be either the recirculation solenoid or the sensor. I had an issue that resembled an EGR fault only to narrow the field to the left (driver) bank mounted sensor device - linked by tubes to the exhaust tube behind the exhaust manifold AFTER replacing the solenoid itself. I learned about these by "Googleing" the ODBII codes and reading up on the symptoms and parts. Good luck! email@example.com
You'd have to get the card replaced if you could no longer read the CVV.
it could be your engine mounts are needing replaced
The Ford Explorer service light will come on to tell you of a problem. The issue could be minor, or could result in loss of fuel economy, or cause engine failure over time.
You could have either the 4.0 liter SOHC - V6 engine or the 5.0 liter - V8 engine
If you had recorded the engine block numbers from the old engine you could compare with the replacement engine.
Could be low fluids or a electronic component in engine...
When the service engine soon light is blinking, it means a subsystem of the engine has failed. It could be something as simple as a broken gas cap, or it could be a serious engine problem. If the Explorer is still running fine, it is best to get the codes read at an auto service shop to determine the next course of action.
could be a bad wire in your engine harness
If you replaced the correct shift solenoid (SS B), check for a broken band in the trans.
It could be anything from the engine to the connectors
Your battery could need replaced, your alternator or starter could be going bad. It is best to have a mechanic look at it if this bothers you or it continues.
Could be very severe engine damage if the motor is an interference engine if not could just need the belt replaced
could be your coil pack / igntion moduel / or fuel pump
It could be a head gasket that needs replaced or a freeze plug needs replaced depending where the leak is coming from. It could also be a radiator hose.
your knock sensor could need to be replaced
4.0 liter v6 ======================================================== The above answer is partially correct If you have a 1998 Ford Explorer ( XLT trim ) You could have a 4.0 liter Single Over Head Cam ( SOHC ) V6 engine or a 5.0 liter V8 engine ( which is an Over Head Valve / pushrod design engine )
i have same explorer and my shakes and jerks especially at a light.... what have you replaced on yours?
Could be the thermostat is upside-down, or maybe the thermostat needs to be replaced. Could also be air in the system.
Check the engine thermostat.
The radio could have a short in a wire that is being bounced and causing it to turn off. It also could be the radio is going out and should be replaced.
The Explorer could have a stuck open thermostat. The thermostat needs to close until the engine gets up to operating temperature to make the system heat properly.
Look carefully at the valve cover gasket. They will leak in the back and run down the backside of the engine.
Because, while the engine as a whole may be bad, there will be some part of the engine that could be repaired or replaced to make the engine work again.
could be a vacuum hose leak--had the same problem and once the hose was replaced it stopped.
You could have the 4.0 L - OHV engine - VIN " X " ( 8th " character " of VIN ) or the 4.0 L - SOHC engine - VIN " E " / both are V6 engines
