    Pressure? Temperature? Which one?

    2000 Explorer XLT 2WD 4.0L SOHC JOB1 5-Speed Automatic 5R55E. Can someone confirm the following? Thanks. The EGR system uses a EGR Pressure Sensor... not a EGR Temperature Sensor, right?

    EGR Valve to Upper Intake Bolt Size and Thread Pitch

    Hey guys! I was hoping that some would know off the top of their head or if they happened to have the bolts that mount the intake tube to the EGR valve. It's a 98 4.0 OHV. When I purchased my vehicle it had incorrect sizes and is currently leaking. To clarify this is the tube that enters the...

    Misfire - EGR - '00 4.0L OHV

    Hello again, So, I'm back with another question. Could a broken, open, EGR tube cause my Misfire issues? I assume that the answer is yes, however I have seen many, and I mean many, different answers about the subject in my search, and figure the Explorer Forum should be my final...

    I have been getting the lean codes for Bank 1 and Bank 2. I clean and replaced MAF. I had previously replaced the famous vacuum elbow (and it's still good). I have had a smoke test done to find any other vacuum leaks. A small amount of smoke came from the EGR, replaced it. The codes have...

    EGR problems, possibly pcm? Please help

    Hey guys a few weeks back my 1998 4.0 OHV Explorer started misfiring bad, not keeping an acceptable idle, and burning tons of unused fuel. It was on my way home from work.

    New member needing some help

    Hello everyone I have a 98 SOHC V6 in the UK and it is running very rough on cold start ups. I've replaced the PCV valve and the idle air control valve which did make a difference, albeit for the engine to rev quite high every time it's started hot or cold. Is there any suggestions on what I...

    Had some problems with a P401 "EGR Flow" message on my 96 Explorer not clearing and decided to try the old Italian Tune Up to see if that would fix it. So today, I was driving the two hours to the bee yard and once I was off of the interstate and out of traffic started to cycle through a series...

    Egr valve hole??

    Hi I changed my egr valve today and the one I picked up from Autozone has a hole that I never seen before on the side of it? The new one makes the truck run worse because of the hole... It just pushs air out like an exhaust leak. Any thoughts or anyone know why that hole is there?

    I had my exhaust manifold gasket replaced to fix an exhaust leak on Tuesday. It was supposed to be a simple job, or so the mechanic said, don't in 3 hours, no problem he said. It took all day Tuesday and most of Wednesday. When I got my truck back, he said everything was fine. I drove to...

    Have your tried EGR side steps?

    I have looked at the DeeZee running boards and the EGR integrated ones. I am really leaning toward the EGR ones but the drilling required is really turning me off. Anyone have these installed? How do you like them? Photos? Here is a link to the ones I am looking at...

    Why does it sound like I'm turbocharged?

    Recently my Explorer has started sounding like it's got a turbo on it when it's under load. She usually only does it under heavy acceleration or going up hills. The driving characteristics haven't changed, but I just wanna know what could be causing that spooling sound? Could it be related to my...

    EGR Solenoid and Shuddering Problem

    My '03 Ford Explorer v6 has been shuddering a lot for the past year. It will rev up and down when idle, even stall out occasionally. It has gotten progressively worse so I took it in to a mechanic. They told me to change the Mass Air Flow Sensor and spark plugs. I did so and it worked great...
