    Spark plug wiring diagram needed (firing order).

    Not correct for my 2001 XLT 5.0L. The left coil pack is reversed. The right coil is correct. I think someone else mentioned that this could be wrong as well.

    In the end it was a bad u-joint causing the rumbling.

    Trim paint code 2001 Ex?

    I know the trim paint codes are not listed, but has anyone matched this 2001 Ex grey trim to a stock Perfect Match store can of paint? The paint code is YZ for the white body. Also - has anyone seen these side door decals before? I thought they were stock but maybe a dealer add-on.

    2001 - rough running

    Looks like it is a drive shaft problem. That's coming out next.

    2001 - rough running

    Air and fuel filter replaced. No change. But now I may be on to something. My scanner shows the injector pulse width, per bank, not per injector. The #2 bank is a lot higher (longer) under load than the #1 bank. At idle they are much closer. I wonder if it is an injector problem. No...

    2001 - rough running

    Yeah fuel filter next. I've run some injector cleaner a few times and hi test gas the last few tanks, no help. Funny that the roughness is pretty constant. Almost like there is a bolt in the tire. But I guess it is more rough on some drives and a bit fainter on others.

    2001 - rough running

    2001 5.0 XLT - 158,000. Runs rough during acceleration. Smooth idle and no codes. Scanner looks clean. Changed plugs, wires, coil packs, no help. Still the same. Its not as rough as a misfire - I did that by missing a new plug wire when I was changing them. Happens in all gears, except...

    01 5.0L AWD stumbles and pings - sometimes

    Tried a Craftsman scan tool - no info on misfire. No codes. In Hawaii - the auto parts stores are not allowed to loan scan tools. That's some aloha for ya. I'll stop by a shop for a better scan tool and see what it says.

    Will it find the cylinder even if the service light is not on?

    01 5.0L AWD stumbles and pings - sometimes

    My beloved 2001 AWD 5.0 has developed a stumble. Doesn't feel like a true miss, but it may be. All started when I had a leaking, spraying, water pump bypass hose. Sprayed water straight up and all over everything. Got that fixed. I had guessed that some of the wires had gotten wet causing...

    Steering Wheel Controls Melted

    Mine melted as well. I would swear that one time years ago I did feel a lot of heat on the controls. I though I was crazy - but the buttons were very warm. Never happened since. I need to replace the buttons if I sell it.

    2001 145K Trans maintenance advice

    My 2001 AWD Explorer has 145 loving miles. It got a dealer rebuilt trans under warranty at 28K. Since then it has been perfect. I drive mostly highway and pull a boat about 10 miles once in a blue moon. It lives a good live here in Hawaii. I'm concerned about any maintenance. I've not changed...

    Book labor for ball joints?

    Does Chilton differentiate between the drivers and pass side control arm? One is a two piece and to remove the ball joint you don't need to undo the control arm bushings. Guess its really not that big of a labor savings. I assume you mean that the 1.3-1.6 is for BOTH control arms together? Or...
