Check all vacuum lines, egr and Pcv vlv and all the other junk that doesn't look like it belongs there. If you hear a hissing, it's a loose vacuum line.
Need to know why light is on but you could just disable it.

I bought a car and all the paperwork, title, registration and even the bastards drivers license was fake and the DMV said it had a lien on it and neither them nor the police would help me with any...


Get an attorney, If you can show proof of purchase then the original finance company will have to legally pursue the original purchaser. If the car was stolen from them then their insurance company should pay the vehicle off and the insurance company will pursue the responsible party. But, you will have to provide proof that you thought you were legally purchasing a vehicle at fair market value.

How to get more power and pass Calif. smog 91chevy c1500 4.3 v6 ?


best advice is to have a turbo fitted by an accredited turbo specialist shop. They will have the equipment, knowledge and chips available to tune the engine on a dyno to pass regulations. They will also be certified to fit the modification plate to the vehicle to keep you legal.

Emissions repairs


check the report on your smog test and go from there. If it passed then it should be working within the legal limits. If your MIL (check engine light) is not on, I think you are ok.

Faulty car dealers


I doubt it as it was sold "as is" meaning that you accept responsibility for everything that is wrong with it. Having said that and not seeing the paper work needed for the transaction and what the seller told you there may be a case of misrepresentation because of what the seller said or inferred. Find a sharp legal council and discuss aspects of a possible claim

Insufficient data from O2 sensor for smog


To review - - after you disconnect the battery you need to drive the vehicle at highway speed for 20 - 50 miles to allow the computer to "re-learn" the data parameters. This means getting the engine up to operating temp and speeds of at least 50 mph.
If the engine does not reach operating temp some of the sensors will not be active yet.

We are looking for a copy of the 2002 Ford Explorer XLS owners manual as our newly purchased vehicle did not come with one.


Contact the dealer. If iot's a new vehicle the manual has to come with it. If you bought it used you can try registering for free at www.autozone.com Once registered you should be able to find a free downloadable copy of the manual.
