THESE codes are for lean fuel most likely you have a vacume leak some where first thing I would check is the rubber hose for the PCV ...This is common on fords ....Start your engine and listen for hissing or air leaking around all hoses maybe you can fix this yourself and save some money.

1996 ford explorer door ajar chime goes on and door locks constantly open What's wrong

Door ajar sensors on explorers get disconnected, sometimes the magnets get stuck. Spray WD40 or a lubricant on all four door jamb mechanisms (or two). Sometimes only one fails, and it is usually the tail gate one. Do a search for the location of the sensors and see if they need replacement.

Good luck.

It sounds like you have a bad motor or transmission mount. Open your hood, and have a friend start your vehicle, and put it into drive. Observe the engine to see what is vibrating.
