Question about 2006 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
This could be signs of a head gasket going bad, You failed to mention if this was a gas or diesel. If its a gas engine the coolant is probably leaking past the head gasket and into one of the combustion chambers and being burnt with the gas. This could lead to the oxygen sensor being contaminated which would illuminate the diagnostic light. Do you have a Checker auto/O rileys or an autozone near you? they will plug a scan tool in and read the codes for free. As far as the head gasket problem if its not leaking coolant on the ground is going out the exhaust, have a compression check done to see if its a head gasket. It could also be going into the transmission thru the radiator/oil cooler if its an automatic. This is easy to check just pull the transmission dip stick and see if its overserviced, it should be a nice Coke can red color if all is ok.
