1997 Ford Explorer back firing

Hi,

I brought a second hand explorer around 2 months ago.
When test driving it there were no issues. on the drive home it was like it was back firing.
This didnt happen to often but now it is all the time at any speed under pressure and not.
Ww have take it to get looked at, they said O2 sensors so we changed the one they said was rooted. This did not fix the problem, we have tried taking the front axel of to see if this helps and no.
We have taken back to get looked at as we thougth it may be the inlet manifold they saw there is nothing wrong with the inlet manifold.

I havent even been able to drive this anywhere.

Please help.

    the first time it came up with one of the O2 sensors not working at all. There was no charge in it like the other one. The only other thing was stating there was a intake in the front.

    Once we had changed the O2 it came back working fine.

    but the problem is still there, we replaced the gaskets in the manifold but that has done nothing.

    It is now worse than ever, before hand it only poped and now it is running like ****, missing something shocking.

    It was fine and running well (other than the poping) once the gaskets were changed and the O2 sensor.

1997 ford explorer limited; used 4x4 a couple days ago (we had a lot of snow) and now is stuck on 4x4 low also every time i drive it the (o/d off) light blinks repeatedly.


Your transmission should be in neutral when shift from 4x4 low to high. Also the brake needs to be depressed. If you have done that I would say it is a solenoid in the transfer case or the relay that drives the transfer case solenoid.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

1997 ford explorer cuts off while driving down road. It will not start. fuel pump is working. checked all fuses, they are good. switch relays. It still will not start. There were spark at the plugs. I...


If you confirmed spark is there, and you hear fuel pump working, I'd still try spraying WD-40 in throttle body intake for a couple of seconds, when it won't start, just to see if it kicks over, just in case pump is running but not up to pressure. If it fires for a second or 2 with WD-40, then you know lack of fuel is the problem.

2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires


It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire
