    Interesting Problem: Chugging but no loss of power

    It might also be helpful to have a working temp gauge but we know that isn't happening either ;)

    Interesting Problem: Chugging but no loss of power

    Thanks, I called them and they said since the check engine light isn't on, they can't do it anyway.

    Interesting Problem: Chugging but no loss of power

    Here is the issue: the truck has a chugging, or brief reoccurring hesitation BUT the check engine light is not on, the hesitation/chugging does NOT affect the speed at which the truck is traveling, nor does it affect the RPMs, power is still great. The only problem is that as you are traveling...

    CD player Trouble Again

    Any suggestions? I'm having some horrid crackling in my speakers once in a while. Sounds like it is grounding out somewhere, but I get a really good response out of it when I slide the heater control from side to side-crackles like crazy. I checked all of my new speakers to make sure no wires...

    92 Going Through 3 starters?

    Hmm might be on to something. Early on, I tried to jump start the truck, but the jumper cables caused both of the battery cable connectors on both trucks to start melting. No, the starters aren't from Auto Zone.

    92 Going Through 3 starters?

    I have a problem with a 92 Explorer XLT. I believe the starter was going out because for a few weeks, it had trouble starting. Then, one day, just clicked and didnt' start. So I get a replacement and this starter will spin, but not engage the truck. I took it back and got a second replacement...

    It sure was. It would have caused a lot less headache if I had just checked that first.

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    Kind of makes me feel like a jackass, but that was the problem with the stereo. (Still have the problem with the a/c blower.) It sucks getting all wrapped up in a project and forgetting the little things. Thank you. I briefly thought of checking the fuses yesterday while doing something else and...

    I need to replace them all anyway because many of them are of incorrect amps.

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    I'll try that. Provided I can figure out which one is the correct one. Hopefully it's the one that is marked in the manual.

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    Oh, and yeah, the stereo isn't the problem. I've tried three different stereos in the truck, all of which were proven to be working normally in a different vehicle. (Gotta love having extra vehicles to try different things.)

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    That is part of the problem. The wiring issue lies deeper than just the stereo, I suspect. I've hooked it up exactly as it should be. But I get no power. And the only way to get a functional stereo is to hook the battery and ignitions all together on one. So from there, I want to figure out...

    ABS dilemma

    I found an alternate port and the blasted thing won't code for me. The manufacturer says that if it doesn't code something needs to be fixed first. A lot of help that is! *I called the manufacturer and oh my God how ignorant can people be!!! Long and short of it, this code scanner does nothing...

    BrianDye, the age of the vehicle isn't important. All stereos (give or take a tiny bit) install the same way. I wanted to know if anyone on the forums had the same problem and how they fixed it. If anything else goes wrong with it, I'm using it for demo derby.

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    Well, nitro, I don't see you offering any expertise. The problem is in blue and is circled. That's the problem with the truck. I never said I expected a brand new condition vehicle, EVEN THOUGH it has less than 100k on it. Pretty damn new condition, ya think? If you can't offer any help, then...

    ABS dilemma

    The code scanner I have is by Sunpro CP9015. It is supposed to be for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury from 1981-1995. It has 3 prongs together, and then another prong off to one side.

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    I need to make a small adjustment from my original post. It is the battery wire and the memory wires that are all bundled into one. Not them with the amp on wire. I have the amp wire taped off. I think I mentioned before that if I run the battery to battery and memory to memory, I get no power...

    ABS dilemma

    Fixxxer, I think the first part of what you said will be the problem. I've driven it over 200 miles since the mechanical replacements and the light is still on. I thought maybe it was on because one of the adjusters was missing and a drum was cracked. I think I'm just going to remove the bulb...

    ABS dilemma

    My ABS light is on. I have replaced everything brake related and cannot figure out what is next. I've put in a new master cylinder, power booster, drums, wheel cylinders, pads, shoes, adjusters, springs, and calipers. What is left?

    Nix, thanks I already tried that, and get the same result. parad1gm, I've tried Dual, Pioneer and Boss all with the same results.

    Help Me Before I Blow This Truck UP!!!!

    I made the recent mistake of buying a 93 Explorer XLT, because I fell in love with my mom's. But this she-beast, is NOTHING but a pain in my patootie! It came with a Lincoln Tape deck in it. When I removed the blasted thing, I found the wires were all intact as Ford put them in. I bought a...
