More likely there was air in the fuel line, this is normal.

The first thing I would check is the park brakes coming fully off when released. If the units are rusted and stiff you will have dragging brakes which will give the symptoms you describe. After all it has been sitting for a year with the park brake on.

1991 Explorer..new wires, plugs and injectors working OK. New Crank sensor also. Idles fine but has no power when driving, especially uphill. Compression and fuel pressure are all within specs. (right on)...


Have the exhaust back ptessure chk'd for a bad cat converter. Make sure you have fresh fuel and the ck the mass air flow densor in the intake ducting. Wash it off withCRC electrical srap. Was thorouhly but do not brush or rub the sensor or touch it. It is vrty fragile and very expensuve to replace. Do not use compressed air. It will dry on its own. Make sure your air filter is clean. Good luck, Ned

Shaking 1992 Ford Explore


Sounds alot like a fuel delivery issue. I would first replace your fuel filter, make sure your gas isnt bad. Make sure your fuel pump isnt starting to fail. air leaks in the fuel lines. and then move too the fuel injection pump.
