    Ford ESP warranty

    I had a 2011 Explorer XLT that I bought used back in 2014 with 27,000 miles on it. When it was about to hit the factory warranty deadline I purchased a Ford ESP from Anderson Koch Ford in MN. Glad I did because that Explorer had tons of problems. I traded it in 2017 to lease a Nissan Rogue which...

    Squealing Noise When Wet, Belt?

    When Garnet Ford in PA replaced my tensioner they suggested replacing the belt since they felt it may be worn due to the problem. At the time I had 60,000 on it. Don't know why this happening all of sudden again.

    Explorer A-Pillar Rattle/Noise

    Happened to me about 3 months ago on my passenger side trim while driving on I-95 in Delaware and luckily no one was behind when it flew off. Went to Ford dealership to see if they could cover it on my Premium ESP (even though trim is not covered) but thought I try. Told me the part costs $150...

    rear wheel air deflictor

    There are 2 screws that go into the wheel well and then 2 push type prongs that go up into the body of the frame area. I have pushed them back in several times but after some time they come back out. Maybe the prongs are busted? I have to take them off to see. Let me know if anyone finds a fix...

    rear wheel air deflictor

    Rear wheel trim There is a piece of trim in front of each rear wheel that keeps coming loose. Is it some type of spoiler or air dam? Does anyone know what this is and if it is needed? I have to keep popping it back in because it rattles as I am driving. I included a pic.

    Squealing Noise When Wet, Belt?

    I was finally able to get my Explorer in while it was raining and have a tech take it for a spin. They were able to hear the squeal and see the diminishing power as it was happening. After looking at things they think it was the tensioner causing the belt to slip. So they put a new tensioner on...

    Squealing Noise When Wet, Belt?

    Yes this is what is happening to mine with the slowing down of wipers, dimming of headlights, etc. I spoke to a local mechinac yesterday and he asked me, "do you feel a loss of power and loss of power steering" He when on to mention that more then likely is the tensioner and since it is not...
