    If you had a second gen Explorer, what engine would you put in it?

    You can always get crazy and throw a Coyote in there. I have to add that YMWV (your mileage WILL vary)

    2015 Explorer sport , 101K miles water pump ... should I do timing chain too ?

    See, that’s the kind of crap that ends up on Reddit for everyone to know and say “What da fuq?” And sometimes it’s ends up on other media outlet. With Ford not looking good in today’s headline, could be problem solved. In 87, I bought a brand new XR7 that turned out to be a lemon. Dealership was...

    AFAIC, not too sure what market it for, I’m leaning towards the market of stupid people with money to burn, parts for that monster will have you taking out a second mortgage on your house to replace something.

    If you were to buy now, would you still buy what you bought? 6th Gen (2020+)

    Yes, I would buy another in a heartbeat. You’ll find libraries of horror stories about every vehicle if you look hard enough. That being said, I’m on my 3rd Explorer, still satisfied.

    Issues With Sirius Updates

    I'd like to give those morons at Ford a swirly. Mine started the install (no warning) as I was backing out of a parking space. There goes the backup camera, and my OSD for the entertainment system is hosed yet again. Every time they push one these updates, my OSD on the right side goes back to...

    Door sensor on 2014 XLT?

    On my 2014 XLT I have an intermittent problem with the drivers door. Unless I sheet the door with considerable force, I get one of the many alarms going off telling me the door is not shut. Suggestions anyone? Bueller? TIA

    The only thing I found Armorall useful for was using it s a lubricant for pulling in cable.

    Dashboard Mat/Cover

    No, I'm not a fan or Armor All or other dashboard protectants. I just know about the reflection/glare issues from driving the wife's Edge.

    Dashboard Mat/Cover

    In my 2014, it has a semi long sloping windshield exposing that big dash and creating a metric butt ton of reflection on the windshield. Does anyone have any experience with a non-reflective dashboard cover?
