1999 Ford Explorer V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 128500 miles
my check engine light came on about 3 weeks ago. I took it to advance auto and they put that computer thing on it and the guy told me that older suv's like this one ** the light comes on sometimes when the weather changes or is real cold. And it was cold. Unusually cold. Well he reset it. Well it came on again today so I took it back to make sure it was ok. Another guy put the computer on it and said he didn't know what that code was so he asked his boss. The boss said it was probably the thermostat. And he said my antifreeze was low. I told him it was not cause I had gotten it service a couple of weeks ago. Well he put it in anyways and it didn't take much of any.. Now that I told u all this. Do I need to put a thermostat in or is it the changing (very cold) tempertures we have been having around here. Or is it the 02 senser. Could u please give me some direction. My truck is not over heating at all and i'm confused. And yes i'm female and I hate thinking people are selling me stuff I dont need. And I dont want my truck to break down.
