Question about 1993 Ford Explorer Limited
Usually a rough idle is caused by a vacuum leak. It could be the intake gaskets leaking, have you had it tuned up lately it could be bad spark plugs or wires. Try running a couple cans injector cleaner through it. I doubt it's the O2 sensor. The check engine light is on? I don't understand what you mean by a "key", there should be a plug in under the hood by the left hood hinge (I'm not sure on a Explorer, that's where it is on the "F"series) that you can plug a scanner into. The plug has 6 female spade connectors a row of 4 and a row of 2, and there should be a lone wire there to with a female spade connector (gray plastic). On those older vehicles you can retrieve the codes from the onboard computer by crossing that lone wire to the top right hand terminal of 6 wire connector. In other words, if you are holding that plug (EEC-IV) in your hand with the 4 terminal toward you you want to jumper the lone wire (gray plug) to the top right terminal, you can use a paper clip. Now turn the key on but don't start the engine the ''check engine light" should flash out the codes.
On a 93 it's going to have 3 digit codes, it's going to start with code 111 I think it will flash each code 3 times then there will be a 4 second pause before it will start the next code. Remember if the "check engine light" is not on, you will only get code 111. When you are done, if you want to clear the codes turn the ignition on and when the codes start to flash simply remove the jumper wire from the EEC plug. If you want save the codes turn the ignition off then pull the jumper wire. Good luck.
