You cannot take apart the catalytic converters to clean them. They are sealed. If this was a shop that charged you for this service then find an honest competent shop to diagnose the Explorer. This almost sounds like an electrical issue (like arcing spark plug wires). If you open the hood in a really dark area, lightly spray some mist water onto the top of the engine while it's running and see small arcing sparks then it's time for new spark plug wires. You can do this little test for free before you take it to a shop.

Engine stalls when put into gear. Idles rough & rich.


IT COULD BE THE POWER STEERING PUMP LOCKING UP AND STALLING THE ENGINE. CHECK TO SEE WHICH ONE OF THE PULLEYS IS NOT MOVING AS FAST AS THE OTHERS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE MOTOR.(WHILE IT'S RUNNING) IT COULD JUST BE AN IDLER PULLEY. I HOPE THIS HELPS TO FIND THE CAUSE OF THE BELT FAILURE. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK

99 Ford Explorer V6 no power


You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.

When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.

I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.
