    EGR Tube Nut wont budge

    So was working on my Explorer last weekend, wanting to change out the EGR Valve, as it is froze and rusted. Well I was trying to get the one nut off, and I ended up breaking the EGR Tube off clean at the nut down at the exhaust. So I ordered a new EGR tube, and am ready to put on the new EGR...

    Mysterious coolant leak.....

    Thank you for all the responses! I will definitely borrow a pressure tester, and see if I can find the leak. I just replaced the upper hose but maybe the clamp isnt sufficient. Gonna tear into this, this coming week :)

    Oil pressure gauge issue

    So over the past few years my oil pressure gauge has always read slightly lower than the middle. However today, I happened to look at it while driving, and it was all the way down on the red line. I panicked, pulled over and checked for leaks and checked my oil level. Oil was changed 2 weeks...

    Oil leak but where? Video included

    So I've noticed I'm losing about a quart every couple weeks. Back in August I would lose about a quart a month or less, with a drip here and there. Fast forward to today and it's way more. I can't tell where it's coming from but it's driving me nuts, because it all over under the car. I took a...

    Fix 1 thing get another issue: Stalling

    Going up, but for the first time today it stalled for a quick second on flat surface. Then stalled several times up the off ramp off the interstate. Filled it up from just above half tank to full, no more stalling...till the gas gets lower anyway...

    Fix 1 thing get another issue: Stalling

    Okay not fixed....noticed with a full tank problem disappears. 1/2 tank or less problem returns. Could that be fuel pump? Last time my fuel pump went out it would die and NOT restart for 5-10 min. My vehicle dies but starts right back up, and ONLY going up hill does it die.

    Fix 1 thing get another issue: Stalling

    So um....easiest fix ever! I replaced the fuel filter today and have had no issues since. I turned the old filter upside down to drain it in a bottle, nothing would come out. I shook it around and then the gas came streaming out. There was a chunk of something inside the filter blocking flow!

    Fix 1 thing get another issue: Stalling

    Checked my coolant and it is full. Also tonight didn't stall at all except for climbing the steep hill heading home. Kept having trouble keeping Rpms up, Rpms would drop to 0 for a couple seconds then it would kick back up and as soon as I reached highway speed of 55mph it would cut out again...

    New code So started engine and got the following code: 116 (O,R) Engine Coolant (ECT) sensor out of range - ECT But that wouldn't cause my explorer to stall would it?!

    Major Coolant Leak

    Just wanted to say thank you for everyone's input! It was the lower intake gasket! Rotted away. Me and a friend spent 9 hours tearing down the engine, replacing all the gaskets along the way. Bought the victor reinz gasket set for $75 and replaced almost every gasket! Let it sit for 24 hours...

    Major Coolant Leak

    I did start the truck and let the coolant start leaking again and then shot a quick video. I can get my phone farther up than my hands will go, and tried to use it for my eyes! Take a quick look at the video and see if you have any ideas... It's just in the first 15 seconds. The view is from the...

    Major Coolant Leak

    After lots of searching around on this site I just can't seem to get a straight answer. Here is what's going on. I came out of store Monday afternoon to see radiator fluid dripping very quickly onto the ground. I got it to work fast before I ran out of coolant, made it before temp gauge ever...

    Where do you buy the bulbs for check engine light

    Hey guys. I've searched over and over on here but can't find an answer. People have said just buy the 94 bulbs but those bulbs only fit the places that actually light up the speedometer and tachometer and stuff. Where can I buy the bulbs that fit the check engine light and the blinkers and the...

    95 Explorer dies when moisture is in the air

    Thanks everyone! Changing the plugs and wires next week. I did take off the coil pack today and cleaned it, it was rusty as all hell. Cleaned the pack and the ground it sits on, noticed a big difference when I started it up and drove it. Also noticed the wires NEED replacing. I'm sure the plugs...

    95 Explorer dies when moisture is in the air

    Hey guys. So the other night when I was driving home from work, my explorer died at least 8 times. I would put it in neutral and it would start right back up. At first it was just when I would come to a stop sign or stop light. But then as I was driving it would die going down the road anywhere...
