The engine light is there to tell you that the CPU has found sensors/ servos that are out side the set parameters. Run the fault codes and repair faults found.. Check the radiator level at the cap as it may be a low water level sensor.

SOURCE: 2001 ford Explorer - engine rattling - is that timing belt/chain

What engine is this? if it is the 4.0L then talk to the dealer there is a recall on the camshaft drive chain hydraulic tensors, these will cause a rattle noise.

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus with check engine light on. code

Make sure you replaced the right one there are two sensor's for the coolant, one takes coolant temp and the other one runs the fans for the radiator. Both are located on drivers side of the block. 2 wire leads on each how ever both are different in sending readings to the computer.Both look just alike also. Just make sure you replaced the right one. Or replace both.

any time the check engine light is flashing it is the on-board computer telling you that the engine is misfiring, i think i would take it back to whom done the tune-up sounds like they may have cracked a spark plug or damaged a plug wire when they tuned it up.

1996 ford explorer 4wd lights flash after transmission replacement


You need to test the selector motor at the trnasfer case, the connector might be disconnected or damaged, they had to remove this to remove the trans, so take it back to the guys (or gals) that did the work, have them check those items.

1999 ford explorer ( air bag light)


Since my last post, I found a bright yellow connector under the drivers seat. I took the connector off of the end, bent it a little, and put it back on. My air bag light has stayed off. I am going to put some electrical grease on it and see what happens.
