    Flashers Work Intermittently

    Hey everyone, I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. My flashers are working intermittently, sometimes they'll work perfectly but most of the time they'll only flash for a couple to a few times before just stopping. If I'm really lucky I can get a couple weeks of perfect...

    Noise from Rear, Not Wheel Bearing

    n2audio, did you end up doing a fluid exchange and, if so, did it help?

    Loud Whistle Noise When Moving (Consistent, Seems Unrelated to Engine)

    I checked all four and none of the wheels are loose, not that it's a fool-proof check.

    Loud Whistle Noise When Moving (Consistent, Seems Unrelated to Engine)

    Hello All, I'm hoping the community can help me track down the cause of a surprisingly loud whistle-like noise that occurs only when moving. Here is a list of the conditions: Easily heard within the cabin Doesn't really fluctuate, definitely doesn't change with RPM Occurs even with engine off...

    QuickLifts with AWD

    Thanks drdoom. Do you have the quickLifts? If so, how's the ride? I assume a bit stiffer than say the Monroe Quick-Struts.

    QuickLifts with AWD

    Anyone know of any issues with installing Rancho Loaded quickLifts with AWD? I always thought there were issues with premature failure of the front CV joints with any change to suspension height. Any info would be great!

    Noise from Rear, Not Wheel Bearing

    So I've got what I can only describe as a howling or dampened light grinding noise coming from my backend when moving (not just under acceleration). I recently had my rear passenger-side wheel bearing replaced and they said the driver-side was good so I don't think it's the wheel bearings. Plus...

    Rattle Noise on Cold Startup, Winding Noise Varies with RPMs when Cold

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was the Power Steering Pump. I'll have to look into that. Thank you 2Trux. Again, I'll post here if I can narrow down the location of the sound.

    Rattle Noise on Cold Startup, Winding Noise Varies with RPMs when Cold

    Hello, I have a 04 Mounty 4.6L V8 with 96,000 mi. and it is making a horrible rattle and scraping noise for a couple seconds immediately after a cold start. Then it will make a winding noise that gets louder and faster as RPMs increase. The winding noise goes away after the engine warms up...

    Hey Everybody, I'm looking at a 2002 Explorer Limited with the 4.6L V8 that has 164,000 miles on it. Single owner with all maintenance records. They're asking $4,000 for it and it does seem to be loaded with almost all the options. My question is do think this is a good buy if I can pull...

    Should I tighten these screws? (Pic)

    Thank you Obie for the great information. I did buy it used, I've had it for about a year and two months now. Never noticed it before. Nor have I had any problems with power steering, except that there is a small leak.

    Can anyone confirm that I am missing the power steering cooler? If so, does anyone know the part number?

    Should I tighten these screws? (Pic)

    So I just noticed these two screws within my front-end and they are not screwed in all the way. They are out by about 1cm each. Should I just screw them back in and leave it a that? Unfortunately, I do not know what they are a part of! See attached image!

    No Vent Control!

    So unlike everyone else who only have A/C through defrost I am unable to get heat through just defrost or just floor vents. Actually, I have almost no control over the vents. For Max A/C and A/C it just comes out of all vents and for every other setting it comes out of the dash vents. The OFF...

    ScanGaugeII vs UltraGauge

    I am looking into buying one of these and cannot decide between the two. I like the low price of UltraGauge but I also like the transmission fluid temperature readout by ScanGaugeII. Anyone have any personal recommendations when it comes to 2nd Gen Explorers?

    Aftermarket Message Center?

    Thanks guys. Is there a preference between the Scangauge and Ultragauge in respect to 2nd gen Explorers?

    Aftermarket Message Center?

    Does anyone know of an aftermarket message center I could install into a 2001 Explorer? I'd like a message center but maybe more of a modern one compared to what originally came with the 2nd gen explorers. Any alternatives would be great! I only need one that can tell me the MPG and info like that.

    XL2F-18C868-AD Power Output?

    Hello everyone, I have a quick question regarding the 18c868 radios. I'm looking at a head unit with the following number: XL2F-18C868-AD. All I want to know is if this one is the premium-level that outputs at 80 watts (20 watts x 4 channels)? It does not have the RDS button. I can find this...

    HVAC Control Issue

    Hello Everyone, I appear to be having a not uncommon issue with my HVAC system (Manual Controls) where I have no control over what vents the air is blowing out. Whether I set it to floor, or dash vents, or just a/c the air comes out of ALL vents. It does not ever come out of just the defrost...

    Keyless Entry Keypad Replacement?

    Hey Everyone, My keyless entry keypad has officially stopped working. At first the 7-8 and 9-0 still worked with a few tries but now none of the buttons work. I am assuming I will have to replace the entire pad and so I am asking if anyone knows where I can get a replacement? Besides a junk...
