    P0305 Misfire on Cylinder #5

    here are the causes of misfires. spark plugs,boots,coils,dirty or faulty fuel injector,internal engine problem,vacuum leak. if you just plugs in make sure that cyl 5 hasn't started backing itself out. i would assume that you also replaced the boots at the same time. if you did not, then shame on...

    2005 Explorer XLS 4WD Tire Vibration Problems

    I manage a goodyear store and my experience is that tires dont just cup all by themselves. something has to cup them. all the noises and vibrations you are hearing/feeeling are from the tires. if you didn't have the problem with the michelins, then go back to them.

    02 EB 4.6 - Blower stuck on High

    does it blow on high no matter what speed you select or does it blow on high only. if its the first i bet the controller is bad. if its the latter you need a blower motor resistor. hope that helps

    2004 with 4.6 SOHC spark plug

    i have seen this happen quite often on f150's with the 4.6 at my shop. luckily there is a machine shop up the street that has always been able to helicoil the head and put a new plug in. and never has to take the head off. good luck

    binding/hoping feeling while slow speed turning.. ANY HELP PLEASE

    the TSB that I read recently stated that this was caused by false 4wd engagement. the truck thinks the wheels are slipping,which they probably are while trying to park and thus the truck tries to engage 4wd before it realizes it shouldnt.

    2002 headlight issues

    assuming that you have not done anything to modify the lights or the wiring, start with some simple checks. when the lights go out do you have power at the switch, do you have ground. i had this happen once on a car I had and the headlamp relay would overheat and shut them off. if the wiring is...

    So the Stealership says.....

    that sal costs about $7.00 and takes mayb a half hour to fix, plus some fluid. the fluid should be changed anyway periodically. its not worth ruining a frt diff just change it.

    Good on/off road tire

    I am biased since I run a Goodyear garage, but the Wrangler Silent Armor is untouchable. It has a 50k mileage warranty, the bfg does not. When the silent armor came out I got to go to Goodyears test track in Ohio and compare it against the bfg tako tire. needless to say when I got home that day...
