    Hey all just wanted to introduce myself. I was a first gen 91 exploreer owner got many good years and lots of hard work out of it untill harsh Canadian salt and rust filled winters did the chasis in. I now find myself a owner of a 02 exporer and want to push it to its limits and potential. 4.0 v6 and yes I bought it with "the Knock" Planning on getting on the timming chain tensioner problem asap. Please all iv'e read is more bad then good about these auto trannys and I figured I would seek opinions from the guys who love and have knowledge on making this setup work to its full potential. I don't fell like replacing trannys and timming chain tensioners evry other year. Please share with me your stories and reliability that your 3rd gen has brought you. I need reasurance that my purchase was a solid one and not a mistake.

    Welcome to the forum! There is plenty of good stories about the vehicle but I am saddened to say that the transmission has never been one of them. Hopefully this new truck will be one of the gems and will bring you many happy miles.
