How to: Remove 4.0 Engine Explorer 1997-2001

Sorry, it's written in swedish, but the pictures speak for themselves.

http://www.grufmanbil.se/mektips/Dem...lorer97-01.pdf

I also did a writeup on how to remove the faulty camchains on the E-engine.

http://www.grufmanbil.se/mektips/Sto...lorer95-01.pdf

And while I was at it, I also did a tutorial on how to remove the transmission on a 95-2001 explorer

Enjoy

for anyone that needs this info, i went and did a online translation of it to print off. they are numbered with the pictures. i left the first 2 out, cause if you can figure those out, your already way over your head!

3. Remove the splash guards on the inner screens.
4. Unscrew the 4 bolts holding the exhaust pipe at manifold. ½ "-making!
5.Remove the starter motor. You do not let the cable connection.
6.Turn off växellådsbultarna keeping the engine together. We recommend an extended
which is about 150 cm long and has svivlande 13 mm at the end.
7. Here is another picture of where växellådsbultarna sit.
From this page it may be easier to hand chasing out the bolts.
8.Here you dismantle the bolts in the bottom of the box.
9.When the engine and the box is separated, and the starter motor removed picked, you can access
turbine screws. 14 mm. Remove these. 4 pcs.
10.Use a 19 mm socket on the crankshaft to rotate the engine.
11.We recommend that you use a small air turbine engine when the screws should
dismantled. It makes the job go faster.
12.Remove the cover over the cooler.
13. Let all the glycol from the engine. There is a drain screw on the right side of the condenser.
14.Remove the bonnet.
15.Add like hood on the roof. Do not forget to protect the paint against huvlåset.
16.Remove the air hose ...
17.... and engine cover
18. Drill away theft protection to the data box.
19. Release the computer connection, 10 mm
20 Release the earth cable, 11 mm.
21 Release the data cable from the engine, do not forget the vacuum hoses on both the right and
left side of the engine.
22 Use a fan key to switch off the fan nut. It is rättgängad.
23 Release both kylrören to the automatic gearbox. 16 mm.
24 Release the plastic casing around the condenser.
25 Plastic casing and the fan losskruvade dismantled simultaneously.
26. Let cooler, 2 screws. Release also kylrören during the cooler, these are fastclipsade.
Let also the upper and lower radiator hose and let the last glycols drain.
27 Release both cooled hoses leading to the heat package.
28. Remove the condenser. How will it look.
29. Unscrew remskivan to the servo pump.
30. Remove the servo pump.
31. Remove the reservoir to the servos.
32. Remove also the small holder to servo hose.
33. Remove the nuts to the servo pump.
34. Put the servo reservoir.
35. Unscrew the steering rods to the AC compressor. 5 mm.
36. Do not forget the vacuum hose when the ac-compressor release time. Do not forget to
re-mount it when the engine comes in. Easy happened!
37. Release the fuel connection. Use spring lock tool.
1999-2000 has a hose. 1997-1998 has two hoses.
38. This is how it looks when the ac-compressor has released a time.
39. Remove the engine mount. 4 bolts.
40. Remove the bracket to the oil stick to the machine.
41. Remove the bracket to the AC pipe.
42. Remove the bracket to automatkylrören.
43. Remove the 2 data connectors and 2 lambda contacts on the right and left
side of the engine (on the back).
44. Now the engine let go.
45. When you come out a little engine you can release the bolt attached to the cable strain. Sitting on
left engine mount. 10mm, taken from below.
46.Now you can remove the mount to ac-compressor 15mm.
47. Release the power cable to the alternator, pull out the power cable and take off cable
oil pressure sensor. Now is the sentence to make it possible to get it out of the engine. Good luck.
48. The released. View from the front ...
