Question about 1995 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Car runs rough in the morning. Then as it warms up it stabilizes. Feels like the transmission because the engine itself runs pretty smooth. Check engine light comes on and off.

Can't check the PCM because it says link error on the scan tool.

SOURCE: check engine light has come on

You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why the light is on.
If there is an advanced auto or an autozone near you, go there and tell them the engine light is on, and you need a code retrieved. They don't charge for this, where other places do. Tales about a minute.

Check for vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure, O2 sensors not switching, and fuel injector(s) not firing properly.

SOURCE: My 2001 Ford Escape runs rough before it warms up.

Well, fords are known for multiple O2 sensors... so I would have Autozone do a free diagnostic to see if

1. it really is an O2 sensor - and which one
2. eliminate the power feed to the injection/choke circuit.

SOURCE: Check engine light flashing

The a/c is causing more of a load on the engine control system. What exactly did you replace? Was it the coil for that cylinder?
There are times when more than one coil is faulty, it just so happens that was the pending code that appeared.
My suggestion is, get the car diagnosed and ask for the mode 6 misfire counts for all cylinders. This way you get a better idea of all cylinders.

Started my 2005 Kia Sorento this morning. It sounded and felt rough than died. Started it again gave it some gas and kept running rough. but RPM's fluxing up and down.


If no "check engine" or "wrench symbol" shows on the dash, the problem may be with bad gas.

If you do have a light displayed on the dash, Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys will scan the car for free. They can give you the defect number and sell parts to you if you can fix it yourself. If you need someone to fix it, at least when you call, you can price the repair by name.

Let the car idle and warm up before accelerating. See if it smooths out or makes noises. The noises would indicate problems that should not be driven.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Car idles and runs rough intermittently after engne is warm.


it could be plugs and or high tention leads, causing missfire best way to check these is better at night open the hood of the car, run engine and see if you are getting a loose spark, that will be your high tention leads it could also be that when they get hot, they expand and start reducing the power of the spark to the plugs if you find that these will need replacing, to test spark plugs, get a pair of pliers and preff a pair of rubber gloves, pull the leads off each plug one at a time, if there is no change on one you pull of, that plug needs replacing, continue till you have checked all of them, hope this helps

Transmission won't shift fron 1st, 2nd or 3rd correctly!


Sorry to inform you that it sounds like your transmission needs servicing.
Check the fluid levels and replenish if level is down.
If after doing this,the car still wont shift properly or smoothly,,then you will have to take the car into a transmission mechanic.

I had the same problem. Then after a week of rough starts, the car got really shaky and the engine light was blinking. It turned out one of the engine coils had died; only 3 cylinders were firing. Solution: replaced the coil and all 4 spark plugs, cleaned fuel injectors. Now it runs real smooth right at ignition.
