i think we are dealing with another engine. Mine is a SOHC 2v 4.6. Don't have VCT, so i'm not sure what to tell you. Good Luck on your search though. I Don't think mine is a cat. convertor issue. The vehicle runs perfectly fine.

still haven't done or tried to do anything else to my truck, just been swamped.

for some reason, i may have some suspicion in the alternator again. I put a new re manufactured one in, but you never know. I was reading up on the 4.6L SOHC mustangs, and 95% of the time, its an alternator problem and lots of people have had their new re manufactured ones mess up right away.

Also, while reading the code scanner, when the revs are above 2000rpm, the code is no longer present.

I'm planning to take it to the dealer and have them have a go at it. I hope they'll be able to figure it out and it wont be ridiculous.

Did you take your explorer to the dealer? What did they determine was the cause?

my truck is going to the dealer this week, will keep updated. I tried another alternator (used, but working), didn't make a difference.

well I guess I can say my truck is finally fixed thanks to the dealer.

It spent over a month there, and it sure made them scratch their heads.

The local dealer was puzzled, and checked everything externally and electrically on my explorer. Apparently they were going back and forth with Ford Engineering and being told what to do by them.

The end result: According to the dealer, The timing was off by one tooth, and the tensioners that was put in my engine were not the correct one.

I have the truck back, it seems to run good, if not the same but no more CEL. Cost me some pretty pennies. Hoping to take it for emission testing tomorrow
