    Hi everyone. Well I don't own an explorer yet, but I think I've narrowed my search down to a 2001 2-door, 4x4 explorer sport. I'm just looking for a second vehicle/toy. From what I read, that's the first year they somehow upgraded the engine to a 210hp v6, but correct me if I'm wrong. Anyone have some suggestions or comments about my choice, I would appreciate it! Especially in the area of reliability, such as what I should look for that was replaced or could need replacing for that model year.

    So were the OHV pre 2001 v6 engines more reliable than the newer SOHC v6 engines?
