'97 Ford Explorer w/ 212,000 miles Check Engine light came on starting running rough (vibrating) and exhaust smells like fireworks. No drop in oil pressure or change in temp. I was afraid to drive very far because I thought it might stall, but no trouble re-starting. What could be the cause? Thanks!

Have the computer scanned for code/s-you have a problem within the engine management system that caused the CEL to turn on-This is your starting point of diagnosis, finding out what's going on.
