    i think its the spark plugs and wires. we are changing them tomorrow and hopefully that will help....does anyone know what the signs and/or symptoms would be if one of my catalytic converters wasnt working properly??

    But still you have coils.Any codes.

  • becky stewart May 09, 2013

    well as soon as i can get my battery charged i am going to take it up to advance auto parts and let them run it to get the codes. they said they cant give me an exact answer but it gives u an estimation of where the problem would be. i am going to charge my battery in the morning n take it up there. are you talking about the coil pack? or some other kind of coils? i know a pretty good bit about vehicles i have just never dealt with this kind of problem/issue

Look under the dash on passenger side and just to the left of the blower motor housing you will see the 4WD control module.Remove the 2 screws holding the module and let it hang down and your resistors are behind this.Remove the 2 screws holding the resistors and remove.
Now I am assuming you have manual climate control and not electonic.

I just had the same issue with my 88 xlt w/351 W it wound up being the MAP sensor and the timing. I would check both of these and see if it solves your issue.

This is a lean Code. What is happening is too much air is entering the engine and the O2 sensor is making the engine run rich to rebalance the fuel ratio.

You need to find the leak. Use a spray bottle of water while the engine is running. When you spray over the leak, the rpm will change or the engine may even stall. This is where repair is needed.

91 Explorer 6cyl XLT standard is super hard to start, the engine sounds muffled when starting and while running, quickly overheated once it was running, looses power when pressing accelerator.


Could be a clogged catalytic converter. It could also be a bad head gasket allowing some coolant to enter the cylinders. Check for milky grey oil.

EXPLORER SOUNDS LIKE TRACTOR


Check the oil, if it has water in it you have a blown head gasket, if not then You have one or more cylinders misfiring, get a tune up. then if it's still doing it you probably have burned or sticking valves.

I have a 96 Ford Explorer that keeps blowing a relay for the fan motor after it runs on high for a few minutes


Assuming it is your AC/Heater fan.....does it sound like it is running at full speed/noisy ? If it is dragging....likely to blow fuse or burn relay contacts. Otherwise, wiring short to ground from relay to motor switch is possible cause.

does it start and run at idle in park.
it is probably either a vacuum leak or an idle air control valve,
if it misses and runs rough before it dies maybe a vacuum leak.
if it just idles too low, the iac valve
