    Check engine light flashing...

    Got my code read and it said that cylinder #3 misfired. It runs alright, but still feels like it lacks full power on the highway.

    Check engine light flashing...

    I have noticed a ticking sound over the past couple of days from my explorer, louder that the usual exhaust leak tick. I checked all fluids and gave the engine area a good once over. Everything looked good. Well, last night I felt it start to bog down slightly while going down the highway...

    I smell coolant!?

    I found out that is was leaking on the radiator where the plastic side tank connects to the radiator. I was told that you cant fix it, so I had it replaced. All better now.

    I smell coolant!?

    Mine is still leaking off and on. I drove it around today and then looked under it and saw where coolant had dripped on the suspension. I let it idle with the heat on and off and it would not drip at all. What gives?

    I smell coolant!?

    I will not be able to look into it until Sunday (too busy with work!) But you have given me some good places to start. I will update once I find the source of the leak. Thanks.

    I smell coolant!?

    Well, I started up my truck after work to let it warm up and when I came back (5 min.) coolant was dripping out under the front passenger side. I tried to locate the leak, but was not able to. I turned off the ignition and snooped around more, and the leak had stopped. I opened up the radiator...

    My rear axle is loose!

    No I am not. How would I know what to look for on the e-brake, as far as what it should look like? If it is parts from my e-brake, that means that only it won't work right?

    My rear axle is loose!

    Well, I did some deeper exploring and I think I found the problem. When I removed the brake caliper and rear rotor, a bunch of small gravel looking peices fell out. I assume that they are rocks because the brakes are only 3 months old and look fine. After re-assembling everything it drives...

    My rear axle is loose!

    The passenger side wheel is the oly one with the play. The squeeking noise does sound like the brakes rubbing, so maybe it is a broken c-clip. I'll have to tear it appart tomorrow and check it? Where exactly is the c-clip located?

    My rear axle is loose!

    How could the axle shaft break? It still drives fine and I don't notice any wobbling or anything. I did a search and read the some in and out play is normal. I assume I have to dig into it to see if the c-clip is damaged or missing, but how do I check on the clutch packs before ordering a...

    My rear axle is loose!

    I heard some squeeking coming from my truck today, and upon further inspection I realized that the rear passenger side wheel moves in and out about 3/16" or so. I removed the wheel and pushed & pulled on the lug nut studs and the axle is moving in and out a bit. What is wrong here and should I...

    Major wheel movement...need help.

    My friends mom has a 94 explorer 4x4 and has lots of movement in the front drivers side wheel. If you grab it like you are checking the ball joints, (one hand on the top and the other on the bottom) and rock it, it moves about about an inch back and forth. I took the wheel off and the hub...

    How to btpass a/c clutch cycling switch?

    My a/c is not cooloing again, 3rd summer in a row. I had the clutch cycleing switch replaced last year and it fixed it. I heard that you can bypass this switch to test if it is the problem. Can anyone tell me how this is done?

    could Fuel Pressure Reg. cause pinging???

    I have a pinging noise when accelerating around 1500-3000 RPM. The noise goes away if I gun it or let off the gas. I popped the hood and listened with a steele tube to my ear, and the pinging seems to be coming from the fuel pressure regulator. What gives?

    Broken brake line

    A co-worker of mine was changing brake pads on his 97 Ford F-150 and the caliper slipped disconnecting this brake line... He used a hose clamp to hold it on temperarily, and refilled the fluid. Does anyone know if this flexible line needs to be replaced or how it attaches to the hard line...
