    Interchangeable parts between the Explorer, and the Mountaineer.

    Any 98-01 Explorer/ Mounty and 98-02 Sport is a direct swap. Just switch the Ford and Mercury badging. 98 Explorers do not have mounting for the tailgate trim though 03 Sports have rear wiper in the window and it will not function correctly with our wiring.

    Difference between 2wd and 4wd knuckles

    I came on here to ask this exact question for my 98 XL Fleet. My next question is this: Why do you need the shaft going through the bearing? This is my understanding of the Explorer's 4WD front driveline: The CV axle mates to the bearing's moving portion. The moving portion is one piece and...

    IRS swap?

    No, IRS will require huge amounts modification. The frames are very different at the back. The interiors also share just about nothing that will directly plug and bolt up. Pretty much nothing from 02'+ 4dr Explorers are directly backward compatible 01' and older.

    '00 5.0L Oil pressure switch

    I just did my 01's a couple weeks ago. I removed the driver side wheel, the splash guard, and unbolted the P/S hoses from their mount on the A/C compressor so I could move them out of the way. Used a few extensions and a swivel, but I got it.

    LEV Gen2 v8 when If you go to 1999, it says thats when it started. But I swear I read something somewhere that 1999 and 2000 were transitional years and all Ford SUVs were LEV by 2001 MY.

    LEV Gen2 v8 when

    I thought that too. But, according to my current 01 Explorer's carfax, it was purchased and registered in New Mexico until I purchased it and brought it to Texas. Window sticker confirms it was shipped to the same dealer it where owner 1 purchased it. My old 01 also had LEV has a similar...

    LEV Gen2 v8 when

    Sorry to bring this up from the dead, but in my search for cats for my 2001 V8 I came across this info and thought it could help someone. LEV Explorers/Mountaineers are equipped with California CARB compliant cats and the PCM has been tuned to compensate for it. If you put non-CARB compliant...

    1995 Turns over but will not start

    My 1997 did the same thing, turned out to be a dirty crank sensor. Cleaned the connector and the sensor face. Started right up after that. Mine is a 4.0L SOHC though, not the OHV like yours.

    Patty has passed on.

    Thanks guys. I managed to save a few parts and accessories from Patty and most of them will find their way onto my new 97 X. The 97 is going to be taken just about completely apart, cleaned, refurbished, modernized, and cleaned again. I'll make a registry for it when I get home from the holidays.
