    212,6xx miles as of today. Runs amazingly well and shifts smooth. I don't drive her hard though, it's my DD and that is a lot of miles. I want to get the most out of her as I can.

    173,000k on my '99 limited 4x4... minor oil leak, rattling rear timing chain, about to replace upper/lower ball joints; replaced thermostat housing x 3; replaced radiator and fan and recently replaced swaybar bushings. I have the impending doom feeling that my tranny is about to go out. It is hesitating when I'm going to pass someone on the freeway. She's also due for some new tires. I've been riding sport king tires (from discount tire) which are no longer made. Any good suggestions on tires? I still get really good gas mileage 19/23 which stayed the same when I first bought her. She has been a Really great daily driver for many years with a lot of road trips!!!

    High Mileage

    I have a '97 4WD, EB, with the 4.0 L SOHC engine.
    It currently has 114K miles on it.
    Last year, it deleloped the infamous death rattle, and I had to replace the front left timing chain guide which was in numerous pieces.
    In general, it runs great, but I'm still trying to find the source of a slightly rough idle.

    I just purchased a 97 XLT 4.0 l (efi not sohc) last week with 261xxx showing on the clock. Didn't even look at the milage when I drove it, it ran strong, no problems. Got it from the wreckers where he figured it must have had a rebuild. Why? "Because it runs so strong!" Seems to be all original, from what I can see. The old owner had the oil changed last month and put 5000 miles on it since then!!!
    Needs a t-connector for the windshield fluid lines, bulb on right driver side dash, and a new drivers side inside door latch. Power steering fluid was low. Had a rip on the drivers seat, the usual one right at the seam getting in. Other than that..oh yeah and it STANK stinky gross narly disgusting smell.... apparently that's the smell of children lol.. who knew the little stinkers could be so foul. I detailed it myself and the sour milk-cum-cattle poop smell is gone. Here's hoping I get another 261xxx out of it.
    It runs so strong that I"m almost curious enough to pull a Carfax on it.

    And sorry if this is the wrong place to post, I just joined the forum and couldn't find any high milage efi-not-sohc threads lol

    Also, it's my first explorer and my second ford (my first is a 08 GT mustang). I was always a chevy girl till now!
