    YEP....another 06 radiator leak...any solutions to this problem?

    I had same problem on my '06. Changed out t-stat to one with about 20-30 degrees less than stock, and replaced cap to one with a lower opening temp. Haven't had any problems for about 10 years now. Hope this helps.

    led headlights

    Look up "Headlight Revolution". That company has a great video you need to watch. Then, just pick out the ones you want to buy. They also state that LED's are illegal for street use.

    I had same problem on my '06. Bought a new radiator and replaced thermostat with one that was 20°cooler. Put about 200,000 miles on it since then with no problems.

    06 explorer

    Like "Willied" said, check that granny really good. I was told by a tyranny mechanic that those transmissions are notorious for shifting problems starting around 150,00 miles.

    This one has me stumped: I have a 2006 Explorer, V6 4.0, 5 speed auto trans, w/ 130,000 mi. I replaced the oil and filter at about 127,000 mi. Also changed plugs at that time w/ Iridium plugs (that was the first time and none broke off, lucky me), changed front disk pads and checked all fluids...
