    I know! I just put fuel injector cleaner in and after a bit it was running better. Next I have to get a new air filter. Hopefully we can make it!

    Original engine and transmission. New clutch every 80k or so. Primarily road car with IPD performance front/rear sway bars, Bilstein shocks, poly suspension bushings. California car - no rust issues. :thumbsup:

    I actually enjoy driving it more than my recently purchased 93 Limited automatic transmission. :rolleyes:

    sorry to say but at just under 175k my 92 xlt 4x4 hit a pothole and ripped the pan apart on the trans. i would have repaired it but there was so much rust ( body mounts were shot and the gas tank was falling off) i decided to retire it. sorry to see it go, it was a good truck.

    I have the same issue with the unstable voltage at idle. rebuilt alternator, at over 240k miles finally changed starter and put in a new battery about 6 months ago. Idles smooth but voltage seems to do whatever the heck it wants. Driving me nuts.

    Just rolled over 200k miles on the 2004 Eddie Bauer Explorer and it still looks and drives great. The underside is dry and nothing leaks. I had to replace a coil recently, and the 4.6L V8 has one coil for each cylinder, but besides that it has given me almost no trouble. I'm going to have to get tyres, change filters, and winterise, but besides that type of maintenance, it doesn't need anything. I couldn't ask it to be much better than it is. I hope it stays this way for a while. There are some design features that I don't favour, like the indipendent suspension and three-piece drive axle, but it's holding-up well, so I'm not complaining.

    I do think the older gens are better/more rugged, especially the first gen. I wish I wouldn't have sold my 1994 Explorer. I asked about buying it back, and guess what. He said no.

    93' hit 300K during the 748 mile move to NV...still going strong, but she does have a minor oil leak and needs some exhaust work before smogging - I'll take care of that in a week or two once the rest of my stuff is there.

    Update: I'm at 208k on the 2004 EB and have a freshly-rebuilt tranny. The 5R55 is kinda troublesome, but mine made it to just over 200k. It has a towing package, which includes a tranny cooler, from the factory, so I'm sure that helped. I thought it would be worth it to fix the '04 Explorer, coz I'm not going to get a vehicle this nice without spending a lot more money.

    My 1994 Ford Explorer Sport has 299,900 miles. Should be cracking 300K within a week.
    I just got it back from the body shop a few days ago. A young lady tried to make a left turn across traffic and crunched the front passenger side corner in. Did the minimum to get it drivable again. I think this will be the last summer for the old truck.

    Keep going. You might catch my 91 XLT soon, it's at 116kish and soon to be gone. My 98 I just went over 216k, work adds about 120 a day to that lately.

    I just hit 306K yesterday on my 1994 Explorer Sport. I'll be getting a new vehicle in a few weeks, so this is probably the last time I'll see this odemeter tick off another 1000 miles.
