The Wrench Symbol is the Powertrain malfunction indicator: When this symbol comes on it means that the powertrain control module (PCM for short) has detected a problem in the powertrain (engine, transmission AWD), in you case it seems to be the engine that has problem. The number of problems that turns this light on is not cut and dry, it can be any number of things that have malfunctioned. What must be done now is to the the system scanned for fault codes, a fault code or codes is stored for the problem when this light came on or in your case comes on. It is likely this problem is covered under the emission system warranty if you have less than 70,000 miles on the truck.

SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer 4.0 still runs rough after

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!

91 ford explorer turns over , tries to start


The catalytic converter or muffler maybe plugged up. This is based on the engine getting fuel and fire to the plugs. I would remove the 02 sensor ahead of the cat. and see if truck will start, be aware if it does start it will run rough. When the cat or muffler get blocked off it puts back pressure on the engine and thus not allow fuel into the cyl. to fire.

Hi, it could be anything from one of the primary sensors to a slipped timing belt. Can you get it to a parts chain to have it scanned? The trouble code will help us diagnose the problem.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
