    the thing is, we don't know what those codes stand for.  We've tried starting the truck but it still is running rough and it smokes

    I want you to clear all the codes and run the engine for a few, then retest and post back which codes come back.

Ok you need to correct the mechanical issue and then deal with the codes, they are a result of the engine problem, not the cause of it.

2000 ford explorer run but no power


Mark, I think it needs a tune up. when were the spar plugs replaced or checked. Any kind of build-up can cause sluggish and rough perfomance.

97 Ford Explorer running rough code p0353


The code P0353 is for cylinder #3. (3rd one back from the front of the engine) on the passenger side. Follow this plug wire to the correct coil pack.

1997 ford explorer 4.0 still runs rough after changing plugs and wires and coil pack..what else could make it run rough?


It could be many other things. Have you changed the air filter? I could be extremely dirty or it could even be a vacuum leak that is making it run rough. Is there a check engine light on? If so that could help find the problem. If it's not something that simple you would need to start looking to see if all cylinders have the correct compression because it could be a blown head gasket or some other internal engine problems. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Explorer 97 check engine light


check firing order that you put the wires on right then 1 at a time pluck the wires off and replace them when you do this each one it will make the motor shake a bit more, keep checking till you pluck on the wire that shows no change in the running condition and check that wire and plug to see witch one is bad

Have a 1997 ford thunderbird v8...started running very rouhg and check engine light blinking. Changed plugs and wires but noticed small coolant leak above engine. Ran fine for 10 days then started running...


Light should have stored code. Go to local autoparts chain & get free scan for codes and go from there. Saves all that guess work & money a lot of times. Write down code(s) and let us know.
