    Looking to get some New rims, Need some help.

    Hi Everyone, I'm looking to replace my old rims with some new ones that don't cost a fortune. As you can see in the pic. mine look pretty beat up. They look okay from a distance but not up close. I found these at a pretty good price, but their website says they're not a fit for my Explorer. The...

    Slight play in passenger side radius/control arm?

    That's your upper control arm, all bolts should be tight and there really shouldn't be any movement with one wheel is lifted off the ground. If you have a little play it might be because of the loose bolt or worn bushings, ball joints, tie rods, etc.. Note: If you have both front wheels off the...

    Bleed slave cylinder with pneumatic brake bleeder?

    You can gravity bleed the slave cylinder, that's no problem. But the problem is usually in the clutch master cylinder (stupid design) it's mounted at an upward angle and the air gets trapped on the top where the cheap plastic master cylinder plunger is, and no way to push it out without removing...

    How to: The Comprehensive Brown Wire Mod Thread

    Well first off I don't know if this mod would apply to your 04 Explorer in your sig. Second it would kill your battery, plus the purpose of this mod is to be able to disconnect the power going to your transfer case allowing you to have 2 wheel low. You don't need to put direct current to the...

    ECT replacement 1996 Explorer 4.0 OHV

    Drain out some of your coolant maybe a gallon or so before you take out the old sensor. Most if not all new temp sensors will come with sealant on the threads, if not, I'd use some teflon tape on the threads. And what ever you do don't over tighten the sensor.

    Downstream O2 sensor bypass???

    I think if you plugged it in and wrapped it in tape air tight and bag tie it out of the way the light may stay off. As long as you have a working cat, I don't see any harm in that.

    Attach fuel pressure gauge. Adapter needed? How? Tricks?

    Some kits have a valve in the hose. Sounds like you might have a valve in the Hose, or not the right hose going to the valve.

    99 Mountaineer 5.0 running hotter than normal??

    Are You losing any coolant? Could be a few things, since you said you replaced it last fall could be a defective fan clutch, once it gets hot turn off the engine and see if the fan spins freely or has some resistance, it should have some resistance. At that temp your fan clutch should be running...

    Crooked torsion bar bolt?

    Definitely look's crooked to me. Look's like the driver's side, I'd jack it up till the tires of the ground and loosen adjusting bolt, count the turns, then use a puller to straighten the keeper. Check out the video.
