    looking at '03 Edge - anything I should look for?

It's an extended cab, step side, automatic, V6. I've been following the explorer forum for years and know that...

    how do I diagnose solenoid block?

    I haven't changed it yet. Based on the symptoms I have (or lack of) I was just wondering if the solenoid block is the most likely culprit? If so is there any way to diagnose it before I spend the money on a new block?

    I have an '02 XLT with the 4.0 and 122,000 miles that has been giving me a code P0775 on and off for a couple of years now. It used to be every couple of months. Lately it is every other day. I have searched and read that it could be one of any of these or a combination of them 1) bad...

    Need quick brake help

    I just went through this last weekend. Once the caliper bolts are removed the caliper come out bottom first. Use a pry bar or large screwdriver to pry the bottom of the caliper toward the rear bumper. If the rotor is worn and has a lip or ridges in it this makes it harder. If this is the case...

    Door ajar light & inop door lock????

    soak latches not handles You need to spray the latch with WD40 (the part that holds the door closed at the rear edge of the door) not the handle. I'm not saying this will fix your problem since you have other issues but this is where the switch is for the door ajar light and interior lights.

    02 Explorer broken rear coil springs?

    replaced my broken rear coil springs yesterday I had some time yesterday so I decide to replace both broken rear coil springs in my 02 XLT 4.0. It wasn't too bad of a job. The hardest part was getting at the 3 studs on top of the shock/spring mount. I ended up removing the spare tire from...
