Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
My 1998 Ford Explorer has sat idle for several months and now when running, it pops and cracks and backfires under hard acceleration. It has new plugs and wires. It seems to idle smoothly. What should I check to get it to run better?
New plugs and wires?
Double check to make sure that you've got the routing and firing order right... if you have 2 switched, the car may still idle well but then pop and sputter on harder acceleration.
The next step would be to run some "Complete Fuel System Cleaner"... If that's the problem, you should see results within 20 miles or so.

Get some fresh fuel, mouse nest in air filter hsng?, replace fuel filter or check fuel pressure under full load first.
