Engine Performance problem
1996 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 152500 miles
My 96 Explorer 6 cyl. Has engine light on and an emission test due like now. I had 6 or 7 codes detected by an AutoZone. Not sure what to do I took the car to my local Ford service dept for a scan. They said I need a new DPFE sensor, catalytic converter, catalytic monitor, and fuel system cleaning. The bill would be $1,936.00. WOW. I can do the work myself but have a couple questions. Will a single tank universal cat convert work as well as the exact fit 2 tank (a LOT cheaper)? How does one clean a fuel system? Being at the engine and upstream, would the DPFE go bad because of a bad converter or converter monitor? Would appreciate your advice. Thanks.
have the same problem?
