Sounds like the vent solenoid may be stuck closed. The vent solenoid should be open when the engine is off to prevent what you are experiencing.

My thought was if the PCM thinks the fluid is warmer than it really is, it might be delaying the clutch pressures and causing the slip. Normally when the fluid is cold the PCM will be more...

I'm not aware of a 400 ci (or 6.5 - 6.6 L) V6, so I'll assume you meant the stock 4L SOHC V6.

My first suggestion would be to check the fuel pressure with the engine running. If it's on the low...

Do you have access to a scan tool that can datastream the transmission sensors, specifically the Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT) sensor values? It would be interesting to see if, on a cold...

Cranking fast would suggest low compression, possibly due to damage of the timing chain system.

My next suggestion would be to check compression (which is also needed for an engine to start).

Welcome to the forum!

When you say "it has fire" do you mean that you confirmed there is spark at a spark plug wire?

Did you just confirm that fuel sprays from the pressure valve when...

I don't find anything that explicitly states, but the purpose of the heaters is to get the sensors up to operating temperature quickly (when the older vehicles would have been in open loop). There'd...

I'd really recommend checking the resistance from the PCM to the O2 sensors (or even just the ones you can access easily) to make sure the wiring is good before condemning yet another PCM. It's very...

It doesn't sound like it. You don't mention what year your Explorer is, whether it is 4WD/AWD/2WD, or what else they replaced or repaired in the process.

Also, you went to a dealer which likely...

Yep, I changed the O2 sensors on my 2000 Mountaineer with AWD and the 5.0L. I basically had to bear-hug the transmission to disconnect and reconnect one of the sensors. I wondered if there was an...

With that information I'd be very suspicious of rust or other debris that was sandwiched between the rotor had and the hub. When you removed the wheel the debris would have had an opportunity to...

To clarify slightly the above comments, the heaters for the oxygen sensors are grounded via the PCM. The PCM controls when the heaters are active, but an HO2S that is failing due the current draw of...

A brake pedal pulsation under braking is almost certainly due to a rotor that is either warped or not running true. It doesn't take must to cause it either, just a few thousandths of an inch can...

If the EGR is stuck open, or unable to close fully at idle, it would be essentially a large vacuum leak and could cause symptoms such as what you describe. But if the EGR diaphragm is bad and the...

That's possible. It probably would have taken more than just a few days running rich, but with 140k miles on the truck, catalytic converters could have been gradually degrading over several...
