Hi

I believe that P1413 is an electric air pump problem. The electric air pump itself, the relay that controls it, or (you hope not) wiring between computer and air pump, or the computer itself. Answer P1413 Secondary Air Injection System Monitor Circuit Low Detailed Description The secondary air injection system monitor circuit is low, indicating the electrical AIR pump is off although the electrical AIR pump was commanded on by the PCM. Possible causes :- Open B+ circuit. Open AIR circuit. Damaged PCM. Air circuit short to ground. Damaged AIR pump. Damaged solid state relay. Diagnostic Aids The AIR monitor circuit is held low by the resistance path through the AIR pump when the pump is off. Also, look for open circuit from SSR to AIR pump.

I have a 98 explorer and had a similar problem. It wound up being bad spark plug wires. So I changed them and the spark plugs while I was at it. It ran great and still does. I'm not sure if that's your problem I would need more information.

My 1998 ford explorer runs ruff it idles at about 500- 700 rpm real ruff and driving it is ruff and very jerky no codes come up garyirving@aol.com


The computer is the only thing that will not throw a code since it cannot tell on itself, but have you checked to see if there is water in the fuel? Seafoam is a good product to use to try and displace any water in the fuel. I am not saying to do this, but... on my offroad car (not for street legal use*) I pour one bottle of the 90% isopropyl alcohol in the tank with as low of a tank of gas as possible, and it usually does the trick. Water in the fuel will do pretty much exactly as you are describing, so it might be worth it to try one of those suggestions, hopefully someone with one of these trucks will be able to shine some light on the subject, good luck

Car starts and idols good drive for a few mins it starts cutting out at low rpms.. Changed plugs and wires last week did change much. Seems like the car is flossing out just wondering if it might b fuel...


well on low rpm is possible due to a a damaged distributer. its the lt engines fault after getting older the seals on the distributer starts taking in forign objects eg water .its located under the water pump. but check for a wire damage on the harness it will be visible on left hand side if ur faceing towards the car below the throttle body.

I changed the spark plugs in a 2005 buick rainier and now the car runs ruff and the check engine light is on


when you changed the plugs, did you make sure to gap them correctly? also, this could be faulty wires. Why did you replace them to begin with?

Bad EGR valve comes to mind here. Assuming the plugs are good, the EGR valve woiuld be what I'd look at.

Engine runs ruff


you may have a valve or valves leaking which will cause it to run rough, have a leak down test done or a compression test
