I have a 1994 ford explorer xlt with 156000 miles on it, and a v6 engine. When ever I drive continuosly on the highway for more than a couple of hours the check engine lights turns on and turns off periodically, and when I come to a stop it idles rouph. What do you thinks going on?

I think your car is trying to tell you! Have the code(s) read. Autozone will do it free. This will give you a starting point, Don't throw good money after bad!

Get it scanned for a possible OBD2 code/s the computer has identified a problem with the engine electronic controls could be a sensor/wire/actuator/computer itself. Then comeback with the code/s.
