Re: Check Engine Light 2000 Mountaineer

I had a similar issue previously but without the check engine light. When I would start it up I'd have to feed it gas to keep it running. I replaced the Idol Air Control Valve and haven't had a problem since. I would try replacing that. It's around $40 at Autozone and an easy fix.

Re: Check Engine Light 2000 Mountaineer

I ended up fixing the problem by replacing the bank 2, 1st oxygen sensor. This sensor is locating in the engine compartment, driver side, under the exhaust manifold. It is inserted into the exhaust line before the catalytic converter.

I had to put the truck on a lift in order to get to the O2 sensor.

Total cost: $60
Estimated repair time: < 5 minutes (after lifting car and locating part)
