Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Ford Explorer V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
99 EXPLORER 5.0 Recently installed new plugs, wires fuel filter, air filter, coil pack, oil filter, and anti freeze. Idle started going up to 1500 to 2000 rpm and running rough. When I hit passing gear on highway I get a real strong smell which I believe is from the cat converter. I pulled the new plugs and they were all soaked with gas. Since I was told this suv dosent have a fuel pressure regulator I am thinking it could be the fuel pump pumping to much gas. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It starts fine and dosent stall, just a rough idle and wet plugs. I am stumped.
have the same problem?
