Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

My Engine light is still on after replacing the GBE value; but now they say it is the senor?

It has been more than a week after replacing the GBE valve on my Ford Explore Sport 01 truck; but the engine light still remains ON. I had Auto Zone do an other test this week and now they are saying the Senor needs replacing. Please advise??

The EGR is one piece in a larger system. Most autozone type places only read the code and match it with a code sheet. This does not troubleshoot the entire system. It is possible the new egr valve you repaired actually is broken. But check the Vaccuum lines and hose around the valve, if broken or loose or even missing, this would cause the same problem. Find a friend or aquaintance with a snap-on style computer to pull up the exact data you need.

whoever installed the egr valve, if it wasnt you, just cleared the engine codes, thus giving you this problem once again. Get it scanned at autozone, and go from there.

The MAF sensor could affect the EGR valve but I would look at the MAP first. You may have an exhaust leak you don't know about. Unfortunately without looking at live data or doing component testing you will play the parts change game.
Some components can be tested by most part stores, so ask first.

Find out if Midas use a genuine sensor or an after market unit. A cpu is set to read the parameters of a genuine unit and after market units while they work have the parameters set so that the cpu sees them as faulty and will put the engine light on.. Suggest you take it to a dealer for a correct fault reading and diognosis of the problem.

Do the engine senor make your car run bad and how much is a engine senor


There are all sorts of engine sensors that do different things to your car, I had a cam shaft sensor replaced as the car was stalling and jumpy to drive. The same applies with the exhaust sensor. little sensor/electrical problems can be awkward to find and depending on the sensor costly or cheap to fix.

Go to the nearest Autozone and do again a code scanning.If the code is reporting lean or rich mixture from O2 sensors, then the problem are not the sensors but something else.

Lean sensor is often caused by vacuum leak. Rich may be given by a defective sensor in air intake or by other causes, like an EGR valve stuck open. Check also fuel pressure to ensure that pump and pressure regulator are OK.

How to reset engine light no codes found


If the light is on, there are codes remaining. You can clear the codes, you'll need a scan tool, but if the problem isn't fixed the light will return.

On some cars you can disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and that will reset the codes, but I would recommend you DON'T do that. Use a scan tool and clear the codes properly. Good luck!
