The only 538 I have ever seen was due to user error. I have pulled codes on the EEC system many times and still get a occasional 538 error. If you don't goose it at just the exact time it will pop up.I normally disregard that error if I see it.

the 2 wire sender is the one that talks to the ECM
When my Explorer was doing that, changing that cender did not solve the problem.

Changing the fuel pressure regulator did....It stopped flooding at hot start up

If it's the same concept of FPR that's used on the OHV 4.0, namely it uses engine vacuum, then the test is very simple. Shut off the engine after it's ran long enough that it's known that the flood problem will occur, pull the rubber vacuum hose from and at the FPR and look/smell inside. Any gas in there and the FPR has a failed diaphragm and the unit needs repolacing.

Run a can of fuel injector cleaner through the tank, then change the fuel filter, and she'll be gooder than new.......
