Stop in at one of the major autoparts stores & they will scan for codes free, and then you have some direction to go.

Check engine light on

Welcome to FixYa. There are many reasons a check engine light can come on. Knowing that, you need to take it to Autozone and have it scanned. It is free and the staff there can tell you exactly why your light is on. This is the best way to go about this so there is no guessing at the issue. Best wishes and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Check engine light has been on since we bought the car - shop said common problem with dust getting into sensor...yesterday car started acting like there was maybe fuel not getting to engine at times and...

No need to guess. Take the vehicle to one of the Major auto parts stores like Auto Zone and ask them to connect their scanner to it and identify the fault code. That will tell you what needs to be replaced. As far as dust getting into a sensor, that's a new one and original. Definitely find another shop to work on your vehicle in the future as it doesn't sound like those guys know what a wrench is.

The circuit is expanding in hot wheather to the point where it is broken. In cold whether circuits and circuit boards contract slightly, reconnecting a weak solder point. Do you have an intermittant check engine light? Is it constantly on? If so new problems can arise, but the check engine light will not tell you about any new issues, it simply remains on. Get it diagnosed at any shop with any OBD2 interface to diagnose your cars specific issues. If not, just save time and replace the starter. It's probably different from engine to either have a 3.0 liter vulcan V6 or the zoomier 24 valve V6. Call the parts counter at any ford dealer and say the right things and the parts guy may tip you off on known issues. I had a 96 was a pile.
