Disconnect battery and now Expy runs 3sec
I am new here. Found you all because I was searching for a solution to my Expy not staying on.
I did a search of the forum and didn't find excatly the answer I need.
So here goes.
The other day the 97 XLT 4.6lit Expy Engine light came on and the suv was running rough. Went to Autozone and they read the code:"Cylinder #4 miss fired" So I found that the spark plug wire for #4 was bad so I replaced it and the suv ran great.
Want to remove the code so the engine light would go off. I disconnected the battery for about 15min. Now when I start the suv it starts right up and runs for 2-3 seconds and shuts off. If I try to start again the engine just turns over but will not start again until I turn the key to the off position first the the engine start for 2-3 seconds.
Has anyone seen this before and could point me the way to fixing this.
I called a local Ford dealer and all they said was you need to bring it in.
Thanks in advance for your help.
