I took my 99 Ford Explorer in to be fixed. There is approximately 135,000 miles on the motor. The codes were showing a throttle sensor and a knock sensor. When they went to replace the sensors they said they heard a rattle in the passenger side of the motor. They thought it it was either the motor bearings or the valves. I stalled the car in high water back in July of the year (07). There was water in the oil but that was taken care of and dried out. The car repair place said it wasn't from the flooding it but from the motor being just old. Does it sound like I need a new motor and how much would it cost to fix?
