The o2 sensor you are looking for is on the drivers side of the engine and it is the first on closest to the engine. Before the cat. I hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: high mileage 1996 Ford Explorer v8 overheats at 75-80 mph

if your mechanic seen no leaks from hoses or thermostat housing its sounds that either your fan clutch or your thermostat is bad. if its heats will driving streets and not highway its your fan clutch and needs to be replaced. if it overheats in streets and highway its your thermostat and needs to be replaced,you will need a thermostat and gasket with some silicone. Drain, follow the radiator hose to the housing and take 3 bolt off, clean housing well,CAREFULLY install the t-stat exactly the way is was taken out (pic), gasket,sillicone, bolt. ecc3d0c.jpg   its an easy job. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

Code p0446, code po340

P0446 is a malfuntion in what is called your EVAP system spicifly the canaster purge valve . What this system dose is it takes fuel vaper and exese fuel from the fuel return at the gas tank and on damand at at hire speed or heavy load and send it to the intake manifold to be burned so it dosn't leak into the atimisphere. The P0340 code is a mis fire on #4 cylinder random and is being caused by the 0446 code.P01850 sounds like a transmissiton code that is like a byproduct and also caused by the P0446 as well .The first thing to check is the gas cap the system is a sealed system its the cheapest and easyest thing to check if it is leaking it would cause all of these problems . If its not that then you need to look at canaster purge valve its one of these two things

P0446 error code 2004 ford explorer

Hi jh9848, I'm glad to help!

P0446 code is related to the Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction. Anytime a "CIRCUIT" is involved it can be the component itself OR the wiring and connector that goes to that component. Sometimes it can be the controller but not very often. On most vehicles the vent control system is part of the emissions canister. You'll need to contact the dealer and ask them. Hope this helps and have an awesome day jh9848.
