2000 ford explorer P0113 code, replaced the MAF, cracked vacuum
2000 ford explorer P0113 code, replaced the MAF, and cracked vacuum hoses. Reset the code with both the code reader and disconnecting the negative terminal. Light stays off for about an hour then comes back on. Can it be the egr vacuum solenoid?
Here's what it is doing. During the summer time when the vehicle is warmed up and it is hot outside the vehicle dies. Have to let it sit for about 20 minutes, like it is cooling down, then it will run for about 5 minutes before doing it again. any help would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Re: 2000 ford explorer P0113 code, replaced the MAF,...
P0113 code indicates that the intake air temp sensor has Hi voltage. This sensor is located in the air intake near or in the air cleaner. It is a 2 wire sensor that looks like it does nothing. It measures air temp coming into engine and then the computer knows what kind of fuel mixture it should be delivering. This may be something to look at. The reason the check engine light comes on later is that the computer only self checks at certain times. Rate me if this helps

This shows list of codes. You have so many faults hard to know where to start. Was new engine an EXACT match for the old one? If not, did you change ECM? Appears MAF is not connected or bad, and also #1 injector circuit is bad. Others also.
code p0113 does not refer to a MAF sensor so replacing that was a waste of money=== It refers to intake air temperature (IAT) sensor---circuit malfunction====causes --wiring open circuit/short circuit to positive--wiring short circuit to ground---ground wire defective---IAT sensor---ECM.
Replace the IAT and check the wiring is in good condition and the connectors are clean and tight.
I show an intake air temp sensor used on all three engines. It uses a gray and gray-red wire. I would expect it to be in the air filter housing or hose. You can check with an auto parts store for a visual.
Stop, DO NOT replace expensive parts or O2 sensor! Ford Explorer codes p0174 , p0401 , rough idle and check engine light on. First thoroughly check all of the hoses and elbows connected to the intake and EGR (vacuum system) for splits, cracks, holes or tears, this could quickly cause these codes and fixes for less than $10. Check all connectors and the EGR valve sensor it could have a crack as well, inspect thoroughly because a split sensor could appear attached to the vacuum hoses but hoses could just be sitting there not actually attached due to a split or crack. This was my problem replaced the EGR valve sensor and the two little vacuum hoses attached to them for $50-60 with in stock parts at the local parts store. Took less than 10 minutes to replace and is easily accessible, the check engine light turned off immediately without having to reset the codes by disconnecting the battery, idle became normal and fuel efficiency better. If you have THOROUGHLY inspected every hose, connector and elbow and found no issues, clean the MAF with electrical contact cleaner ( let dry) and clean the EGR with carbon cleaner. A dirty MAF or EGR could also cause these codes to pop up. If this still doesn't work, then consider replacing the EGR, if that isn't it then try the O2 sensor. Good luck!
The upper intake manifold gaskets and isolators (the bolts that hold the manifold down) leak and cause the p0171 and p0174. The reason they leak is due to a missing baffle in the front valve cover which allows some oil into the upper intake which swells the gaskets and wears them. The manifold gaskets and valve cover should be replaced. But before having this done check to see if the black plastic hose on the back of the rubber intake hose(between the throttle body and maf) has dislodged. This happens alot when a new air filter is installed and will cause the same codes.
You could be right but before going to all that trouble of replacing the intake gasket take a close look at the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. Also look for a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor. The MAF sensor may be dirty especially if you are using an "oiled" air filter and it was over oiled. Remove the MAF sensor and clean it with electronic cleaner. Make sure it is dry before reinstalling. If it is damaged, replace it. Also replace the fuel filter as a partially clogged filter has been know to set this code on some vehicles. Check all vacuum hoses and replace as necessary.
The most common problem on a Ford with these codes is deteriorated PCV hoses. Check the hoses from the PCV valve to the intake manifold. Pay special attention to the rubber elbows. They often crack on the inside curve and the crack is hard to see.
