    New and need brush guard help

    Although your sport trac is an 05, it actually based on the 2nd generation explorers from 97-01. The 05 explorer is gen 3, and while it is the same year as your sport trac, it is very much a different vehicle and that is most likely why you can't mount that brush guard.

    need help with leaf spring bushings

    Thanks for the info. I just ordered another set a few days ago. If those end up being wrong, I'll give these a shot.

    P2195 and P0135

    Just use WD40 or carb cleaner. Check first thing in the morning when the engine is cool. Fire it up, and check quickly before the block gets hot if you are worried about lighting yourself on fire. Have an extinguisher handy for piece of mind. You don't need to drench everything. Just hit the...

    Interior lights.

    Check the rolling dial that dims your gauge cluster lights and turns the dome light on and off. Plenty of 2nd gen explorers at the pick n pull, you can nab one for about 10 bucks there. You cam get a new one from autozone for 35 bucks if it is in fact what's causing the issue.

    P2195 and P0135

    usually a bank 1 sensor 1 error is caused by a vacuum leak upstream of the cat converter. you are going to need to inspect all your vacuum lines, plastic tubes, rubber hoses for cracks or tears. then once you confirm that there are no leaks, then look into replacing that bank one sensor. A lean...

    need help with leaf spring bushings

    I did, they aren't. The PN for the 2003 sport trac is listed as RB207 (rock auto), and the 2003 ranger is RB159.

    need help with leaf spring bushings

    Thanks for the link. Based on the bushing chart, it looks like the closest bushings that fit my actual springs are the 84-03 ranger. I found a set being sold on autozone through online order for 70 bucks. I will report back on whether these fit the bill or not.

    need help with leaf spring bushings

    Thanks for the reply. I may need to go to a shop like you did since I have tried to find bushings that are similar in diameter to the ones in the leafs right now, but not even Ford was sure that if they ordered the bushings for me at 200 bucks that they would fit.

    need help with leaf spring bushings

    Thanks for the reply, the bushing that are in the springs right now are just press fit into the leafs. I called Ford parts and service and they could not give me what the OEM bushings measure at. They said I would need to buy them first to find that out. They quoted me st 200 dollars for 2 bushings.

    Planning EF's 25th anniversary runs in 2021

    I can't quite commit to anything in 2021, especially given the State of the world right now, but if there is a push to put together a run near the Rubicon, I can at least suggest and give coordinates, and trail info on trails and runs that would be more forgiving for folks with vehicles that...

    she lives!

    Thanks, I was finally planning to do more overlanding trips into the Sierras and then this pandemic hit and so I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and work on my Trav while I'm stuck at home. I can't wait to get back in the dirt and post more trail reports and how to's.

    There is a 90 degree rubber elbow on a vacuum tube located near the oil filler neck. these often crack causing the lean code to trip. Look carefully, sometimes the crack is really hard to spot even when it's a big one. Good luck.

    need help with leaf spring bushings

    Hi all, I recently picked up a pretty nice set of leaf springs from the pick n pull to replace my old and sagging set on my Trac. I have a question for anyone who has replaced the leaf spring bushings on their springs. I pulled these leafs from an 03 trac, exactly like mine. When I ordered the...

    she lives!

    Hi all, I used to be a contributor to this forum a long time ago, but life happened, I had to take care of two sick parents who passed, a marriage, the birth of my son, and a career change has kept me from posting like I used to. Well since the pandemic has me stuck working from home, I figured...

    Winter Time, 4x4 issue

    have you checked your tire tread? if any tire is worn down considerably more than the other tires, it will throw your drivetrain off and cause those clunky symptoms.

    thanks, our JK is my wife's toy, no trade out, it's paid for and sees limited action unless we go up to the mountains or just driving it around town to run errands. it'll be my son's someday when he is old enough to drive.

    Cranking no start

    My money is also on the fuel pump. Get a fuel pressure gauge for about 20 bucks at harbor freight or autozone and hook up to the fuel rail. Or just have a friend turn the key to the on position while you have your ear up to the tank. You should hear the thing hum as it primes up if it is still...
