    '94 2.3L ranger, high idle issue.

    I also checked cam timing today. The previous owner said he replaced the timing belt about 15k miles ago as preventitive maintance. The crank and cam are lined up correctly, but the aux pulley has a mark on it and I can't find a corresponding mark on the timing cover.

    '94 2.3L ranger, high idle issue.

    I just bought a '94 Ford Ranger, 2.3L, 5 speed, 2wd with 199,000 miles. It has a slight miss/hesitation at cruising speeds and lower throttle position. KOER scan shows code 411---Cannot control rpm during KOER low RPM check. The idle speed was 1180rpm, TPS at .98v, IAC duty cycle 0.0, MAF...

    Here is the post I made on SCT's forum: I will let everyone know what is said.

    OSS/VSS on 2000 5.0 explorer

    Efi into a classic mustang is common. But they are either using hydraulically controlled AODs, manual VBs, or electonic AODE with 94-95 mustang computers. I wanted OBD-II, which is why I went with the explorer setup. I am going to make a post on SCTs site in their Pro Racer Package forum and...

    OSS/VSS on 2000 5.0 explorer

    What Ford did (at least in the mustangs that I am used to messing with) is use the same basic AOD output shaft and housing that was used with a cable, and put a sensor in there that the shaft turned. It had a gear on it just like the end of a cable did. As technology changed, they found it...

    OSS/VSS on 2000 5.0 explorer

    I need the AODE output and housing to run the early mustang speedo cable. I have considered centering an explorer rear, but then it would be about 2.5" too short without running spacers or deep dish wheels. Neither of which I care for. I feel the 8.8 is far superior to a 9" stock...

    OSS/VSS on 2000 5.0 explorer

    Also, is there anyone on here that is using SCT PRP for the EQE3 catch code?

    OSS/VSS on 2000 5.0 explorer

    Okay, still planning everything for my 2000 explorer 5.0 swap into a classic mustang. Yes, I know there are easier EFI 5.0 options, but I want OBD-II and 4R70. There are probably easier Exp5.0 options with earlier years, but I bought this setup cheap for a good running engine and all needed...

    FPDM on '00 Explorer?

    Any help on the vss issue? Or should I start a new post for it?

    FPDM on '00 Explorer?

    So from your posts, I am gathering that this '00 works by an intank regulator holding pressure at approx 30psi? If the ecm runs the pump constantly when needed, then I can run any type of aftermarket pump and turn it into a return system by changing rails and just allow the ecm to run the...

    FPDM on '00 Explorer?

    Okay. So its built into the hat or something? I guess I will get the pump too so I can figure it out. Next thing, the trans has a sensor in the same place that the VSS is on mustangs and other 4R70s. So, which one does the explorer use? The one in the trans or one in the axle housing?

    FPDM on '00 Explorer?

    Also, instead of starting another post, I have a question about the rear ends in explorers. I know the VSS is in the axle housing on this '00 donor. However, I have access to a '95 model explorer rearend that I would rather use. They have an ABS plug in the same position on the axle housing...

    FPDM on '00 Explorer?

    I am looking to use a 5.0 and wiring from a '00 explorer for an engine swap. 99-up uses a returnless fuel system correct? If so, I would assume they have a Fuel Pump Driver Module. Where is the FPDM located? I am planning to pull all of the electrical from the vehicle as well, so that I have...

    Any engine differences between '97 and '99 (5.0)

    Thanks for all of the info. Definetly helpful.

    Any engine differences between '97 and '99 (5.0)

    So I do need to stay with the '99 intakes? They are different? BTW, I am asking because I haven't actually seen the '97 engine and I don't know if they look any different. A friend bought the engine from a running '97 to use the intake and heads but has decided to go a different route...

    Ford 8.8 question

    As was said, if it has disc brakes, you are golden. I have an 8.8 explorer rear in my TJ as well. Definetly a good upgrade. I still need to figure out an e-brake cable setup though.

    Any engine differences between '97 and '99 (5.0)

    I have a '99 5.0 Explorer that was stolen and the engine was knocking when I got it back. I had planned to rebuild it, but have found a take out engine from a '97, which will be cheaper than a rebuild. The '97 explorer build date was 11/96, however it does have "P" heads. Were there any...

    Trying to decide what to do.

    I dig your login name. :D I considered a 347 if I stay N/A and lift it. But with a turbo, stock displacement will make plenty enough power to split the block in half. I have even considered a windsor swap, mainly due to an arguement a couple years back on a local mustang forum about...

    Trying to decide what to do.

    I have a '99 Eddie Bauer Explorer. 5.0, AWD, 151,000 miles that I have had for about 5 years. Due to the current SUV market, miles on it, and some damage on the rear door, I was only carrying liability insurance. It was recently stolen, and was trashed. The right rear tire was really low...

    How much can shift pressure be boosted safely

    Increasing shift pressure is not a good idea. Especially with a 5R.
