Hello, You may have a spark plug that is loosening up. Chances are you did not work on the exhaust donut or the heat riser if equipped. When you put the engine into gear the engine will flex in its mounts. This flex can create space on the upper exhaust flange which goes to your Catalytics. The exhaust donut will get chewed up and leak.

If the flange is rusted off, they do make an aftermarket repair kit to saddle the main exhaust manifold and give you a different flange. Then you can bolt the balance of the exhaust system back together.

There is also the possibility that your EGR valve is leaking exhaust. The EGR does not open in neutral on some models. The manufacturers do this because less emissions are made at idle speeds and keeping the EGR closed will prevent stalling. You may want to check the EGR for holes or the EGR gasket.

Oil and transmission fluid mixing and leaking from under car 99 Buick century and now car will not change gears

you need to look at the tranny cooler located in radiator that's the only way tranny fluid can get out but how its crossing over to motor oil im not sure unless you also have a motor oil cooler in the radiator.and that will cause tranny problems ,don't try to drive till you resolve these issues., my other thought is oil is leaking out back of motor and mixing with leaking tranny fluid, try draining tranny first to see if motor oil is really in tranny.

Squelling noise at idle on '99 explorer. new belt and new tensioner. problem is intermittent so i cant get a stethescope to accuratly determine problem. sometimes it seems to come from the tranny and...

try puffing a wd4 lube on one of those belts and see if the noise disappears, if it disappears then you must be using a belt with its width and thickness incorrect for your pulley.

99 explorer power drivers window won't go up

Suddenly quit & window motor makes no noise at all? Probably the switch. First however, check the fuse. Windows motors do go out but usually begin operating more and more slowly before quitting. 99 Explorer has a good motor history too.

Hub noise

You have a bad wheel bearing, when you turn away from the bad bearing the wheel bearing is un-loaded and quiets down.
