Question Drive cycle

What does the service manual say constitutes a "drive cycle" for a 2005 explorer? Thanks.

Re: Drive cycle

Hi
Are you talking about a drive cycle for Pre-Delivery or for OBDII purposes ?

It's like 10 pages long !! I could scan it for you tomorrow but it's too long to be posted here I think. If you're REALLY REALLY interested I'll e-mail it to you. Say where....

No worries!!!

ps. If you don't mind my asking, why is it you're interested in OBD II? Not many people even know it exists...!

Re: Drive cycle

I drive for a living and work on my own vehicles. I deliver the US mail on a contract basis on the Crow Indian reservation in MT. I have known about OBD II since it was the law...I have had a few '95 Subarus and they had it. My current vehicles are a 2001 Ranger with 231,000 miles and an '05 Explorer.
A lotof shade tree mechanics are afraid of "computers" but I love it, I just figure it's there to help if I learn to use it to it's full advantage. I have done some hacking and cracking with OBD I but not the second generation...yet!
Thanks. TG[IMG][/IMG]
