Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I was driving down the freeway last night and the check engine light came on-no prior problems. Drove about 10 more miles and when i turned, the vehicle lurched (like staling). Then it just died. It will crank up and start, run for about 5-7 seconds and then stall out. Starts fine, just cuts out? Any thoughts? Fuel pump, fuse, air intake? I have a K&N filter charger on it and my mechanic said that sometimes the oil from those gets sucked up into the air intake and clogs the air flow regulator (?) Thanks for any input. I am going to go to Autozone to see about renting a codes reader this morning.
check all of the vaccum lines and check for leak at the fuel injection unit and for leaks at the intake manifold also make sure the spark plugs are at the right gap and change the fuel filter and here is a couple of website to checout www.autozone.com and www.alldatadiy.com and i forgot one www.taurusclub.com and i hope i have been some help to you Michigan Man.

Take the vehicle to any local auto parts store that will read the codes. WRITE THEM DOWN, and report back here for further help.

SOURCE: 2003 Taurus. Oil light came
Before driving it anymore I would have someone test the actual oil pressure using a mechanical test gauge to see how much , or little, oil pressure you actually have. The knocking noise could be a hydraulic lifter that is partially collapsed due to low oil pressure or a rod bearing that has been damaged from low oil pressure. If it is just a lifter that is making noise then there's a pretty good chance that the lifter will quiet back down once the oil pressure is normal again. If it turns out that your oil pressure is normal both at an idle and at highway speeds then the noise may be unrelated. You can cause some serious damage by continuing to operate any engine that is low on oil pressure even if the dipstick shows it to be full of oil. Hope this helps and good luck!
