    If that is the case, why aren't there more complaints about this issue? I have had mine almost a year now and no such issue.

    Are you kidding? How do you prepare for -50 temperatures, Akmechanic? :eek: I’m just glad you’re not an ice cube. :D

    I’m glad they figured it out, Dwr4door. Send a PM if you’d like any more details forwarded.

    LM614,

    I still have your Explorer’s details so drop a line and I’ll be happy to forward your details to the Customer Service Manager in your area.

    Although I have had zero problems with any type of burning smells, I am curious about this tube leaking oil on the air filter thing......

    Can someone better explain where this "tube" is located or take a picture of what "tube" this is and where it is leaking onto what air filter???

    Is it some sort of PCV valve?

    If this burning issue will not be fixed, I am getting rid of my explorer. I did not pay 40 some thousand dollars for this and all the other issues. I'm going to look into a jeep. Now that I know what to look for from this ford experience, hopefully I can find something that will make me happier than this explorer. I just see major problems down the road with ford really not caring.

    Cory, after reading peanut0426's reply, why hasn't Ford fixed this already? Isn't Ford losing out on repeat customers because of this issue? I've given up on getting this fixed, that's why I haven't PM'ed you. It's like Ford technicians don't want to figure this out as it would be a major recall, I guess.

    peanut0426 & Bonnie Lynn,

    We’re working on a fix for this. I want your concern taken care of once and for all; I arranged a call, by the end of the day today, from the Customer Service Manager in your area.

    Aha! So it isn't the car breaking-in so much as it is the car just breaking. Well, as long as it is fixed... no worries.

    You’re welcome, Peanut; I’m confident your dealer will take care of you. Let me know if you’d like any details forwarded before your next follow-up.

    Finally got my car back, they said they did not discover any problems or foreign matter in the air filters or evaporator. They cleaned the filter.

    The smell has reduced greatly, however it still detectable.

    I'm having this same problem. I don't have such a problem ignoring the "other" problems, but this one is just bad! Like I'm driving an old piece of junk and it only has 1900 miles on it!

    So are you saying that they don't read Cyrillic in West Texas? :)

    Did you try a Russian to English translation website?

    I just ran that link through Google Translate, and the resulting translation is a funny read.
