    Solved Overheating/coolant overflow

    Yeah, it's usually a stuck thermostat. I suggest replacing with the 195 degree Stant Superstat, though whatever you can get works in the short term.

    Looking for tips on fixing front differential seal leak

    The driver's side seal leaked on mine well over ten years. Only recently did I tear apart the front end and will be changing the seals out for new ones. The gear oil level usually makes it so a minimal amount of fluid seeps out during 2WD use, but being in 4WD is sure to make it leak more...

    93 Explorer, 20+ flushes in a 2 year old cooling system, coolant still brown

    CLR works fine and I've heard of it being used and vehicles running great for many, many years afterwards. If it isn't left in too long and the system is flushed clean afterward, with a new thermostat installed, it'll likely be fine. Rustoleum also has some rust remover similar to Evaporust...

    fuel tank skid plate - need opinion

    The stock bracket has a bolt head that sticks down on that inside edge since it's a two-part strap, with the horizontal flat part from the skid plate meeting the vertical part coming down from the frame, then being bolted together, sandwiching the tank with the skid plate. More bolts that don't...

    fuel pumps

    The Motorcrafts rust out since Ford uses mild steel for the pump assembly, just like they do for the exhaust. Of course it's going to rust and disintegrate. I was just happy that the retaining ring on the fuel tank was still strong enough to be used. I went with a NAPA pump assembly when I...

    Would you buy the new Bronco if it had a manual transmission?

    There's going to be big changes in the auto industry between now and 2020. The Tesla Model 3 will have ramped up production by then and other electric vehicles will have hit the market and there will be more hybrids and possibly even a few with hydrogen fuel cells. They may not call them CVT's...

    Would you buy the new Bronco if it had a manual transmission?

    There's almost zero chance either the Ranger or Bronco gets a manual transmission. By 2020, most vehicles will have Continuously Variable Transmissions or whatever else they want to call it. There will be more electric vehicles, more hybrids, and the amount of vehicles, even sports cars and the...

    Mayweather vs. McGregor. Your Thoughts?

    A has-been boxer who beats his wife vs. a guy with the MMA gimmick limited to boxing moves. It was a big yawn for me. I'd rather have seen Mayweather go to prison and McGregor do something more meaningful, like train bullied kids in self-defense. Watching two human beings beat the crap out of...

    Trunk-Stored Fire Extinguisher Recommendations?

    If you're anywhere near Indy, there's bound to be at least a few places to get a decent fire extinguisher. Sometimes they are a smaller store dedicated to fire extinguishers, other times you may be looking for a industrial/commercial dealer that does everything from single extinguishers to...

    Trunk-Stored Fire Extinguisher Recommendations?

    As you've discovered, the cheaper fire extinguishers you can buy at most department stores and big box home centers don't really hold up to long-term storage in an automotive environment. This is mostly due to cheap materials and construction. The cylinder itself may be metal, but usually the...

    Spare battery as a jump pack?

    You can. I hauled around a battery with jumper cables before those jumper packs were ever cheap enough to be available at the consumer level, and it worked out great the few times I used it, mostly to jump off other people's vehicles though. You'll want to get some other battery to trade in...

    What are the best spark plug wires?

    Best is a relative term. Best for what? Reliability? Longevity? Power? Torque? Racing? A trip to the moon? OEM Motorcraft everything (plus, wires, coil) is "best" for simplicity and for the engine to run as designed in stock form. As much as I like NGK stuff on imports, I'd disagree with using...

    1st gen Explorer insurance - why is it so high?

    Your driving record plays a big part in the rate you get. It also depends on what the other vehicles were and their specific safety features. It might be that the 91 is more expensive than others if they have 4-wheel ABS where the 91-92 Explorer only had rear ABS. That usually has something to...

    Can't Get Rid of Engine Ping/Knock

    Sometimes the "pinging" that these engines have at high mileage is caused by the wear on the stock rocker arms, and if the rocker arm wear gets bad enough, it can affect the lifters, requiring replacement of both: http://www.explorer4x4.com/lifters/lifters.htm Actual engine knock, like hard...

    Lone Survivor movie end - what does the boy say after the hug?

    Does the movie not have English subtitles for non-English parts? If non-English lines are not officially translated in English-language films it's often because the main characters don't speak that language and so even though it's a real language, the director leaves it untranslated so the...
