I just bought an '04 Ford Explorer and the gas mileage is only ten mpg. I was told it would be 15/20 city/highway. Highway mileage is 18-19. When I was at the dealership the salesman checked the codes and all were ok except one EVAP code. The check engine light is not on.

Whenever i start up my 98 explorer the timing chain makes a clicking noise that gets worse if the car idles, but is barely noticeable while the car is in motion. Ive looked for estimates on how much it costs to replace the faulty timing chain(s) but they range from $500-$3000. Can someone give me an estimate?

My code reader indicates a gross vapor leak. I replaced the fuel cap and reset the error (the error repeated). I used a vapor system smoke test tool and found a large leak at the Vent Valve but this valve is Normally Open. How can it be closed so that I can test the rest of the vapor lines? I plugged the purge valve outlet as I didn't know how to close that valve either.

everytime i turn on my heater it wont blow heat but cold air, also it makes a clicking noise,but makes no noise when i put on the air.

Every other time the drivers door is closed it locks on it's own. The automatic door locking system has been deactivated by using the door key pad. Also the drivers door lock doesn't work with the key.

Someone please help!!!! This is my only source of transportation! My 1995 Ford Exp I believe has some type of electrical problem. I had to replace the relays because when I turn the car on the check engine light woundn't display until I tap the relay panel under the hood. Afterwards, I could hear the fuel pump hissing (as it's suppose to). It worked fine for over a year and now it just died on me while driving. I let it sit for an hour or so and then it started back up but it runs slugglish. For over a month now when I start it up, the check engine light comes on and it idles very bad and sometimes after a few seconds the light goes off, the truck idles as though I've hit the gas peddle and then it runs fine.I have tried to have a diagnostic test ran but places I have taken it to says their computer can not read it. Please help...
