    Hi All, Having an issue with the recirculation option in my 02 Explorer (dual zone automatic). When I hit the recirculation button, the vents in the front close off and the recirculation door does not cover the fresh air opening behind the glovebox. There is not ticking sound from the...

    Haha thank you! Yea I figured, I'm gonna have the compressor swapped out along with the accumulator. Then get a full ac flush and recharge. Hope it will end well!!!

    02 Explorer Limited 4.0 AC issues

    Actuators are plugged in! Once the recirculation is pressed, air blow out of the front vents for a few seconds, then it starts to force the air through the window defrost vents at full blast while no air is coming out of the front vents? :hammer: Compressor had started to leak, or what...

    Restoring odometer reading

    Replaced my cluster a few months back with one I found on eBay when my original cluster went out. I have an 02 limited with the digital message center. I did notice that the 02s where made in two batches one with an earlier 02 date and one with a later. Anyway, my truck was in the earlier...

    02 Explorer Limited 4.0 AC issues

    Thats correct, no grinding noise when starting up with AC off. Its as if the compressor is getting stuck momentarily? But would this issue not also happen when the engine has warmed up? Ill check the actuators, but I find it hard to believe that those vents will close once re circulation is...

    02 Explorer Limited 4.0 AC issues

    Hey all, Currently having two issues with my AC. (Dual climate control) The first, on a cold start while the engine has not yet warmed up, a component in my engine bay seems to "grind" when I turn on my AC. The grinding only happens when accelerating and not while stationary (I can kind of...

    Thermostat housing still leaking after multiple repairs

    Haha I hear you! Since I can't seem to find the metal housing anywhere, is there any specific part you recommend as far as OEM(motorcraft) to aftermarket goes (like a dorman). Also, is there any type of sealant or extra steps I can take when installing to have a better result? Thanks!!

    Thermostat housing still leaking after multiple repairs

    Thanks for all the input guys, I understand the whole pressure thing now. The reason why I had that logic was just because of the continuous leaks throughout the cooling system at different component. First starting at the reservoir, then radiator, then thermostat housing. It just seemed like...

    Thermostat housing still leaking after multiple repairs

    Already changed that as well :/. Last time there was a hairline crack through the plastic and now it looks as if it is coming through the seams. Does running the AC put more pressure on the engine cooling system, aside from the fact that obviously the engine is working harder. Does it actually...

    Thermostat housing still leaking after multiple repairs

    Thanks swshawaii, I'm gonna look into properly torquing. Metal housing is hard to find to purchase, no more on ebay. Before I replace with the metal either way, I would like to know if there is any scenario where coolant pressure can go "through the roof" to cause problems like this. Im...

    Thermostat housing still leaking after multiple repairs

    Hello all, I purchased an 02 ford explorer limited 6-7 years back and when I purchased the car,it has a tiny leak in the coolant overflow resevoir. No problem I though. I just kept adding a bit of coolant every so many months. Finally, I decided to wise up and change the resevoir. After a...

    Hello all, Recently took out my cluster on my 2002 EXP limited for a bulb replacement and ran into a head-scratching issue. (Battery was also disconnected for a very long period of time if helpful) After putting everything back together, I ran into a delay issues when turning the key to...

    install sub to factory stereo?

    If you tap into the speaker lines....impedance changes...although its not much...it is taking a load..laws of physics. On a budget yes they work...if your not an audiophile i guess it wont matter.

    install sub to factory stereo?

    That line output converter will definitely work...but will restrict your sound system...Invest another $100-150 dollars and get a legitimate HU with a sub line output...youll be glad you did. Used to work at Best Buy as an installer, customers would constantly complain about the bad quality...

    Slow Fuel Fill Problem -2002 Explorer.

    I have tried several different gas stations so i know that's not it. Filler hose does not seem to be kinked, and ive checked all the hoses that are discussed on that Sport Trac forum. No DICE!! So now im thinking there might be something actually restricting the hose from inside. Prolly...
