    2005 Explorer XLT 4.0 V6 (throttle body and cold air intake) HELP!!!

    you know fyi i have noticed that the 02 and 04 4.0L and the 04-05 4.0L have different throttle bodies. The 04's and up are smaller than the 02-03's. So.... saying that, did you return that TB spacer? I am willing to take it off your hands if the price is resonable.

    Mtx help!

    It sound like your amp is on its way. But I would check all connections, at the speakers, check the wires, and everything at the amp. There might be a short in one of the speakers, you may have pinched a wire with the chassis of the car, or something at the amp is touching. Look into all those...

    Hello all, I have an 03' explorer with 108,000 miles. I bought it used with about 62k miles from a ford dealer.

    Steering wheel radio or audio controls

    do you have the stock stereo installed in the car? Only reason I ask because i know with my Alpine stereo it is not compatable, some other models are compatable. If you have the stock stereo installed, I would remove it and check that all connections are plugged in securely.

    I had the same issue but mine was saying low brake fluid on the display and it happened lot. I just couldnt take it anymore, and I knew that I had brake fluid.

    Front wheel bearings

    I ended up replacing one font hub with the 3 hub bolts. I didnt order from Rock Auto, I ordered mine from a local autoparts store from my area, and they where included. Good luck with the removal, I suggest getting the LARGE hub puller and a numatic gun makes it alot faster and easier.

    supercharger is installed!!!

    with the 2.8 pully how uch boost are you expected to get. Also with the stock pully do you feel a considerable amount of power difference. Just asking because for 2g's you get about 3lbs of boost, which means you have a hp gain of probably 30hp. I am not tring to talk you down, I am just...
