    Air Filter

    Don't know if this helps...but I tried to install a cold air kit on my X and it wouldn't run..i mean it did, but you could tell something was amiss.. I think we narrowed it down to the sensor though. If we put the stock air filter and parts in, it runs fine.. I just tossed it out as...

    Tailgate Door Actuator

    I'll take some pics when I get home today.. Right now with no solenoid to pop the rear, I have to climb thru the back to manually open the door (pics will come, I promise) My 30lb solenoid doesn't pop it, and the buddy who had the X before me said it's because it's not strong enough...told...

    Tailgate Door Actuator

    Sorry...i just realized I needed to clarify a little. I have a shaved tailgate so that I need to hit a button to pop the rear gate..the actuator that actually pops the lock is the one I need to replace. the old one thats on it now is a 35 lb actuator and not enough to pop the lock.

    '92 X Won't Crank..Electrical..

    OK it's called a "Starter Solenoid Relay" and O'reilly's has it for $25 w/lifetime warranty (Borg Worner) or $10 for 1 year.. So after work, I'll be replacing that part in the parking If that doesn't get anything going, anyone else got an idea?

    '92 X Won't Crank..Electrical..

    Got to lookin, and the solenoid on the firewall is noticeably cracked. What exactly is this part called? I'll be replacing it, but not sure the name. For 5 extra bonus points, whats the part number from oreilly's, autozone or NAPA (only 3 choices I have here in town)

    '92 X Won't Crank..Electrical..

    Hey gang.. Yesterday the problems began when I got in the explorer and turned the lights, no dash crank. Tried to jump it, and it would act like the battery was just dead because it wouldn't crank over while trying to jump it. So I took the battery out and had it...

    Heater Not Blowing Hot Air

    Heater Not Blowing Hot Air

    Question..on this door fix thats all over here...which way should the door be for heat? I'm going to check on this as well because I can't honestly say I can tell if the door is opening or closing to allow the air to blow over the heater core, so i'm gonna spend about 10 minutes to tear into it...

    Heater Not Blowing Hot Air

    OK I'll burp her tonite when I get home from work...what puzzles me is that it worked driving home last night, ya know? I wonder if the cold is affecting that door-fix that's on it's too cold to switch over to the heater core air or something.
