    02-03 trannys

    Actually I have found that the Sport was continued unchanged in 02 according to Wikipedia so that is a viable option as long as unchanged means the older tranny too. I guess I will just stay away from the other 02 and 03 models. They do say that by 05 the issues were worked out but now I am...

    02-03 trannys

    So, do you think that if one has an 02 or 03 with a properly functioning tranny, and installs all the transgo and sonnex updates/upgrades in it that it would be a fairly bulletproof tranny?

    Just got back from looking at the 02. Ad said it was in great shape and it was except for the tranny was shot. I drove over an hour to see this thing and I had asked on the phone if anything was wrong and was told no. What's wrong with people these days? I have run all over the place, over 2...

    04-- 4.0 all 4 chains replaced. completely gunked why?

    I'm not an oil expert but many moons ago I was taught that it is not so important the brand of oil you use, as it is to stick with the same oil through the vehicles life. There are different chemical compositions in different brands of oil and the differences in them when combined can result in...

    Did you change the filter at each oil change? What oil have you been using?

    02-03 trannys

    I have searched these forums and read a lot about tranny issues. I get the idea that with flushing every 30,000 or so the tranny may last a while. I have a couple of questions though and I am going to look at an 2002 8cyl with 71,000 miles on it in the morning. Do these years of Explorers...

    Ok I will stick to V8's then. Any more input on the 02 and 03's as far as tranny troubles?

    Loud humming sound from rear?? About to buy...

    Buy the vehicle only if they fix the noise first. Other wise.... I say run and run fast!

    I am looking at V6 engines mostly and in sports preferably. They did make sports in Gen3 didn't they?

    02-03 trannys

    I am looking for an Ex to replace my rusty one. A friend has told me that the 02 and 03 models had a lot of transmission issues. How true is this?

    Buying another X maybe.....

    Nice X KBB has it @ $3200 NADA has it @ $3000 I might go look and possibly offer them 3 tops but I doubt they will take it. Its 2 hours away though.... I would like a nice low mileage first gen for sure though! Been looking for a while. Gonna crawl around under my 97 and see if I can...

    Buying another X maybe.....

    I found it on Craigslist about 2+ hours away. That's why I haven't seen it yet. They specialize in rust free southern cars so the ad says. You don't see these every day, with low mileage and all. I am in Wolcott.... just a few minutes from Hannibal!

    Buying another X maybe.....

    Ok, thanks. It's the mileage that got my interest. IF, and thats a big IF its the real mileage.

    Buying another X maybe.....

    My 97 is getting really rusty so with thoughts of replacing it I have found a 1994 Sport. It is a southern vehicle and is supposed to have absolutely no rust underneath or on the body.... and it has only 84,000 miles. Asking price is $4700 at a dealer. Seems a little high to me and I haven't...

    4 wheel low drops out

    No ABS light now. It was on a few years ago but shut off with a front hub assembly change. No issues since. I do have a suction gun and will change out the fluids. Going to look up the hall sensors now... pics and stuff. Thanks

    4 wheel low drops out

    Yea mine works fine. I never exceed 45 with the plow on and a lot of times I have it in 4x since the roads are bad. No issues in 4 high so far, only 4 low and that is only occasionally.

    How to: Rebuild 4X4 Shift Motor

    Quick question I see that the majority of responses in this thread are from 94 and older owners. My X is a 97. Are there any changes to the shift motor that I should be aware of before tearing into this? Are the pictures in the first post relevant to my model year too?

    4 wheel low drops out

    It has been a while since I read about the brown wire mod so I just read it again. How would this help with troubleshooting in my situation? I know that 4 wheel is disengaging from the lack of traction. Also, are these the range shift motor contacts that you refer to? and

    By the way, that photo is from the sticky up top...... not of mine. I am just trying to get some ideas before I tear into it.
