Engine light

(1999 Ford Explorer)
in Jaffrey, NH on June 09, 2011
Well after changing several sensor,two EGR, spark plugs, wires also other small price items i.e. TPS sensor. The engine light remain on, just when I was about to change the O rings on the intake manifold, because I felt it was my next move the engine light shut off and has remained off. What is that all about ? Should I kick the car ?

Well, I would probably kick it...or kick myself.

But anyway, yeah - diagnosis! Did you have any direction at all before engaging in all the parts swaps?

A proper diagnosis by an experienced mechanic would have saved you time, money, and frustration. Throwing parts at a car in an attempt to get the check engine light to go off is not the way to fix a computer controlled engine.
