Thanks to Scotty Kilmer on YouTube for being my inspiration on making this how to for mechanical noobs like me, plus I want to thank the forum for saving a lot of money on fixing my Explorer myself-where I'm confident enough of course.

Well I went and unplugged my PCM (after disconnecting battery) and found out it was dirty on the inside, no corrosion, just covered in dirt.
