1996 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200017 miles
1996 ford explorer 2wd xlt fuel mileage just keeps getting worse. In the last year the milage went from 21.4 mpg city to 18 mpg city to 16.8 city. Highway went from 25.9 to 20.1 mpg. Took the truck in to find out why. They reflashed the computer and the milage went to 22 mpg city and 27.3 on the highway. I have done all the maintenance filters, plugs, fluids. Air in the tires, plug wires. Two months after the computer re-flashing the mileage dropped off again. Any Idea of what is going on because the dealer just gives me the run around about the problem, Thought about a new computer or maybe water in fuel but there is no driveablilty issues. Also had transmission rebuilt at 175000 miles. Thanks
have the same problem?
