    How to open glass lift gate?

    Hey everyone, I know this is a really silly question, but how do you open the glass lift gate on an '02 explorer? I always thought that it couldn't open separately on mine, by when I was at the car wash, they opened it somehow. When I asked them how, they said they didn't know. I think it...

    Audio Sound Dampening: Peel and Seal

    Definitely need to tackle this when I have two back-to-back days off, lol! Not looking forward to stripping down the interior, but as a wise man once said, a quiet car is a car worth being proud of! Any tips or troubles you came across when removing the seats or carpet?

    3rd Seat Floor Mat/Liner for 3rd Gen

    This is exactly the type of post I was looking for! I don't use the 3rd row too often, but thought it would nice to have a custom floor liner just in case. plus, I think that the carpet-style would be more comfortable back there. I need to call them to see if I can order the 3rd row by itself.

    3rd Seat Floor Mat/Liner for 3rd Gen

    I have the WeatherTech DigitalFit floor liners for front and rear, and they're great! But, isn't it weird that no one makes a floor liner for the 3rd row? I've looked everywhere! Also I can't find any cargo liners for when the 3rd row is up. I can only find ones that cover the cargo area...

    Audio Sound Dampening: Peel and Seal

    Anyone use the Peel & Seal (from home improvement stores like home depot and lowes) in their car as an alternative to dynamat? I've heard a little about the smell. Does it really smell that bad?

    High Mileage Road Trip

    Hey Everyone! Thanks for all the quick replies. Offered a lot of great advice, especially about the spark plugs. I was just gonna get platinum, but if there's not much of a difference, might as well get copper. Lots of reassurance on whether or not my truck would survive the trip! Looking...

    Hey everyone, I have an '02 Mounty with nearly 140k miles. I am the second owner and have had regular maintenance on the car for the last year. I've never ha a high mileage car before, and need to know if it's a bad idea to take a 300 mile road trip in warm weather (mid 70's). I plan to...

    Security Shade

    Hey everyone, I've been looking at ebay and craigslist once/twice a week since October for a 3rd gen tan cargo security shade/cover. Anyone know where I can purchase one for less than the 110+ that's always posted on ebay? Realistically, 50-60 is more in my price range

    Reclining Rear Seats

    Happy holidays! Was thinking of a new project: modify my 2nd row seats so that they recline backwards, like the front seats. Has anyone done this before? Would this be a relatively easy DIY? -Rick

    $225 to replace transmission pan... Okay price?

    Hey guys, Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. The leak is coming from where the o-ring seal should be. I guess the person who did the service for the previous owner didn't replace the seal. No problem... But, they also stripped the entry and lost a bolt, lol. @POS, thanks for the...

    $225 to replace transmission pan... Okay price?

    Hey ya'll, Got quoted $225 to replace the transmission pan/new fluids in my 02 Mounty. Good deal, or look somewhere else? Had a leak coming from the pan itself.

    Possibly Tranny Leak?

    Thanks for the reply! I checked out the forums on transmission (I didn't realize there was one. I should have posted there in the first place). I have a buddy with a lift, so he's going to check out the transmission for me in a few days. I'll keep everyone posted.

    Possibly Tranny Leak?

    2002 Mounty This morning I noticed a small fluid spot on my driveway. I got up under the car and saw that red fluid was dripping from a pan. I don't know much about cars, but since the fluid is a bright red, I think it might be related to the transmission. I bought the car used and haven't...

    Car accelerates without pressing gas pedal

    Not sure what was wrong, but it took about two weeks for things to get back to normal. Fueled up twice since then, so it may have been the gas, or just coincidental.

    Car accelerates without pressing gas pedal

    Hey All, Some punks threw bags of food over the hoods and windshields of a few cars in our neighborhood. A few of the cars affected (including one of ours) now slowly accelerates when we lift our foot off of the brake pedal. Sometimes the car idles a little bit higher on the freeway, as...

    3rd Gen Explorer/Mountaineer Homelink

    Yep, for resetting the previously programmed codes, I just waited a little bit longer than the 20 seconds to be safe. After that, I went to the garage unit receiver and pressed the "learn" button, and then pressed the first home link button a few times, and it worked! No red light needed!
