Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
I have a 1996 FORD EXPLORER 4 DR. WAGON/SPORT UTILITY 5.0L V8 FI 16V REAR WHEEL DRIVE. When going 65 and above for extended amounts of time (30 min +), the engine loses horse power. It starts to bog out and I have to turn the engine off completely and remove the keys for at least 15 minutes for it to run normal again. And depending how long I leave it dictates how far I am able to go.
It seems when it starts having these problems, I push the accelerator and it wants to go but immediately misses or backfires or boggs out. BUT DOESN'T STALL.
I have replaced all the o2 sensors, wires, plugs, filters etc.
Upon the last diagnostic I ran, it said random misfires. and left and right bank sensors were out.
Here is a list that the mechanic replaced;
Fuel System Kit;
Tech noticed real dirty gas in the gas tank with a lot of debris.
