      Good Morning all, I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt which was mis firing on cylinders 1,2,3. I changed the spark plugs to autolite, Bosch were in the truck, and cleaned the injectors with 90% rubbing alcohol. A former ford tech stated i can clean them with it. Now the truck will not stay crank. It will turn over for a few seconds, but run like a tractor and then cut off. Plugs are gaped correctly, no leaks from the fuel rail. I did a search and a few post were sauing clean the TPS, But the only thing i removed was the plus and the fuel rail... Could I have clogged the injectors using the rubbing alcohol?
