Ford laser 99 no power


Hi there.
well when you throttle up to about 2000rpm do you get blue smoke coming out the exhaust.When driving on flat road will it power up as normal with out missing or getting hot.
what colour was the old spark plugs were they black or light brown.
When you start engine and run for 3 minutes then let it idle and remove oil filler cap do you get smoke coming out.
Number 1 if yes then engine is lacking power due to piston rings worn answer rebuild engine.
Number2 spark plugs brown [good] if black soot as num1.
Number 3 if you get black smoke or blue ,then the engine is lacking compression could be your problem as num1
OTHER WISE GET YOUR TIMING CHECKED AND SET TO BOOK.

I have an 03 Ford Explorer 4.0 v6. We JUST replaced the timing chains. A week later, I had a belt shred and got that changed as well. Since then, it has started having a little rattling noise, which has...


I would double check the belt tensioner, it may have been damaged during the timing chain replacement. Also if those chains use a tensioner, this could be the culprit as well

1998 ford explorer oil pressure


Knocking in engine and low oil pressure usually means bad main bearings. May have been caused by bad oil pump or just worn out bearings due to high mileage. If this is problem needs engine or rebuild old engine.

1997 ford explorer cuts off while driving down road. It will not start. fuel pump is working. checked all fuses, they are good. switch relays. It still will not start. There were spark at the plugs. I...


If you confirmed spark is there, and you hear fuel pump working, I'd still try spraying WD-40 in throttle body intake for a couple of seconds, when it won't start, just to see if it kicks over, just in case pump is running but not up to pressure. If it fires for a second or 2 with WD-40, then you know lack of fuel is the problem.
