Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My suv stopped running on me and I took it in and they ran test and reset the sensors. they state that the fuel booster sensor is putting out to much so they reset it. I left with my auto and went uptown and the check engine light came back on. They said it would happen again and then just won't run anymore. They wanted 500 to replace it. Can I buy this sensor and have it put in ealsewhere and just what is this? Thank you Chris

Had a compression test ran, came back good but still running very ruff, have to keep foot on gas pedal or will die, any more suggestions???


I would be checking the inlet manifold for vacuum leaks including brake booster for leaks. Remove hose to booster and blank off. Check PCV valve is operating ok. Adjust the idle mixture screw to obtain a better air / fuel ratio. Do this in conjunction with the throttle adjustment screw to set the idle rpm. Check ignition timing. If you have efi system then run fault codes to see which sensors are faulty. But basically it is an air/ fuel ratio problem.

I have a ford v6 3.0 dohc i changed plugs and wires fuel filter and fuel line pressure sensor had five codes come up the car starts properly took for a test drive and ran well but shut off when i stop


Code 191 is fuel pressure range-performance.
Code 172 and 175 are O2 sensors reading rich.
Codes 1132 and 1152 are O2 sensors not switching.
Under normal conditions, the fuel pressure should be around 40psi.
The pressure sensor is reading the pressure is too low or too high.
The O2 sensors should be switching back and forth between lean and rich. They are both staying rich.
Based on that info, I would reason the fuel pressure regulator has failed, or the return line to the tank is plugged.
The engine is getting too much fuel and the computer can't control it.

My 95 nissan maxima is idling rough and then stalling when i let off the gas or am stopped at a light or stop sign; i have replaced the coolant temperature sensor, not it. Took it to the nissan dealership...


the problem is fuel related and nowhere else
it indicates a vacuum leak , either at the manifold , brake booster , transmission actuator hose/unit for the transmission or hoses that control under that dash
bad at stopping at light indicates that it is the brake booster
simple test is to put the hand brake on, start the engine and if it idles ok , put your foot on the brake
if still ok move vent controls ,
if with the foot on the brake it plays up , replace the brake booster

I have a 2001 Santa Fe and the Engine light is lit and has been for many years. When I took the vehicle for the State Inspection I was told that the Co2 needed to be changed so the light would come off and...


The best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and get your Hyundai scanned for a DTC code. That would tell us which O2 sensor has gone bad. You have three O2 sensors and one of them has gone bad, the O2 sensor sends signals to the ecm to control the air fuel mixture so it will not run to rich or to lean which is causing you to fail the state inspection. Good luck and keep me posted on what the DTC codes are, be glad to help.

One thing to check is the fuel pressure regulator.
If the diaphram is leaking it will cause gas to be pulled into the vacuum system causing lots of white smoke and extreme rough running.
