    4.0 issues

    I feel you. Problem with all my stuff is it was vintage and no longer available. I can't replace it with the same thing. My tools are replaceable and the head unit as well. The rest isn't.

    4.0 issues

    Well it doesn't help that the hatch has the lock issue. I'm going to get a door switch and wire that in. I haven't been able to find a latch that wasn't overpriced.

    4.0 issues

    No I mean limited. They badged as XLT but mine has many options available for limited only. I actually managed to find a 91 explorer in a scrap yard near me. I'm going to get the heads off it. The 98 motor is plan b. I have to replace all my tools. Drug addicts took everything out of my rig...

    1993 Ford Explorer 4WD issues

    When I bought my 91, the 4x4 didn't work at all. I pulled the shift motor, disassembled and found the bushing to be disintegrated. I left the screw and used a short length of vacuum hose that fit snuggly on the screw. Reassembled and presto mudding please

    4.0 issues

    I have a 91 explorer limited. My 4.0 blew up just a couple days ago. Cracked head or blown head gasket. There are no 1st Gen engines available in my area. I found a 98 running 4.0 that I can afford. If I stop down to long block and keep the 98 flex plate and used my 91 intake, will it work...

    08 Ltd 4.6L Front drive line buzzing noise/vibration

    No If I remember correctly he did it by ford maintenance specs. And correctly used rear axle lube. My guess would be that there is a bad lockout assembly, input shaft bearing, or a tcase bearing issues

    cv seal in trans.

    Honestly I would go safe route and replace the entire CV axle assembly and the seal. You may find that with the leak the splines are sheared or worn

    Is it possible a 2002 sport trac came with drums?

    It's is possible that you have an early 02. Ford does their production changes according to fiscal year and this means changes are put into effect around July. As seen with the change of 7.3l to 6.0l power stroke. And yes you should be able to bolt in a 4x4 rear as ford used the same exact...

    Adding a terrain management switch to an explorer that does not have one?

    Possible yes. But it's going to be more than a switch. The terrain management system would require sensors and programming for the computer and possibly a module dependent on Fords design of this system

    Changed thermostat, now runs cool

    Next time you pull your tstat, look on the flange. There is a temp written on it for when it's supposed to open. The 4.0 is around 197-198 but the 5.0 is 190-195. Sounds like your parts store screwed up or you didn't bleed your system right. I just recently had to do the t stat on mine as the...

    Changed thermostat, now runs cool

    I just purchased mine in December and haven't had money to do my cooling system. My power steering system is new though. Couple days ago my rig blew the top hose barb off completely. Tore down and took tstat out and it was black and brown with no gasket left. My gauge wasn't functional so I took...

    Yes spring side towards the engine

    1992 Explorer. Fuel pump or MAF

    I would grab a Chilton and check the range requirement for the ECT. Some parts have a Max requirement of 5 volts. It may be that the ECT is a minimum of 5 volts. I don't know right off but I would definitely check value ranges

    changed spark plugs now making a weird noise

    Yes that's the easiest way to get the plugs out. As for the hissing, you may have caught something or exposed a vacuum leak. I would start checking the plastic connections for the vacuum hoses and if those are intact I would make sure your intake runner is snug

    Ignition coil recommendations.

    It is dependent on conditions of where you live. Here in Kansas every time I swap just the bad one it leads to others becoming Gremlins. We found it's best to just change all 8

    Changed thermostat, now runs cool

    Yes even my 91 4.0 has a bleed valve.

    Ignition coil recommendations.

    Also make sure you do all 8 at the same time. Otherwise you'll have issues with misfire after awhile. Idk what causes it in ford modular motors. But this is coming from experience

    Changed thermostat, now runs cool

    That should be able to be opened. A basic Schrader valve just let the truck idle and press until fluid comes out

    1992 Explorer. Fuel pump or MAF

    I haven't had to look. As mine only has 108k miles. I haven't had any issues

    Ignition coil recommendations.

    No problem. I remember when I needed help. If you want to there is always a way to install a separate tank for the rear window washer. It's just a matter of a button and a tank and moving the plumbed lines. I'm not really a fan of the modular motors. I bought a 4.0 so I wouldn't have to work on...

    Ignition coil recommendations.

    Accel makes a great replacement coil. While you're at it, I would do plugs and wires. And check for any valve cover gasket leakage

    Extreme Temps and Weird HVAC Quirks

    Most of these issues seem to be electrical related. The moving air while off can be due to the fresh air for being open (can't completely seal a cabin due to co2, etc) or it could be that the box is right against the cage and a rough flex may have twisted/shifted the box and the door can no...

    Changed thermostat, now runs cool

    Yes the system needs to be bleed. Follow the lines and there should be a small bleeder valve. It will look like a small version of the AC charge ports. Some are located right next to the radiator.

    1992 Explorer. Fuel pump or MAF

    I would just replace the temp sensor and sender. It's about 20 bucks. You're going to be right there anyway do remove the IAC and take it apart. Clean it very carefully with carb cleaner and a scotchbrite after cleaning the brass needs to be cleared using a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. Put...
