You know whats really weird about this is it will stall and not start at all. At times when it try's to start it will back fire out the exhaust and than nothing but later will start and run but when it first starts it will not stay running it takes a few times before it will stay running. I am wondering if I have purchased a LEMON

It has not jumped time. Has anyone had any issues with the computers? I did see an old service note about some type of chip problem or something of that sort but did not see years it was for.

could be,that generation of explorer had its problems.

the first thing you should check is your spark plug wires. ensure that they are routed in the proper order.

Yes I did I put new plugs and wires and made sure they do not get damaged and ran them in all of the clips they should be in. I do keep getting the 341 code. It will run fine than out of the blue it has another personality. I am really hoping I didn't get a big yellow lemon.
