Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys. There are many things it can be, but the diagnostic system in your vehicle will identify the part or group that is malfunctioning.
One thing you can check is the intake manifold directly under the Airhorn. Usually this will show a "insufficent EGR flow" and Code 401. There is a groove beneath the gasket that needs cleaning. Its 8 bolts and a $10 gasket to fix. The diagnostic computer misses the real problem and blames parts for not opening instead of being plugged. It can be other things too, so have the scan anyway.
