    No pressure in radiator hose after running?

    I have the 4.6 engine. The problem with the heater is, if I have it on Auto or Heat , the blower will not turn on until some time after being at normal operating temp. I'm wondering if this is due to an air bubble in the system? Possibly causing no pressure in the hose, and the heater waiting to...

    No pressure in radiator hose after running?

    Is there sapose to be pressure in the radiator hose after running the engine for normal driving, and how long should it stay pressurized? I'm having heater issues, and am thinking this is the cause or related. Please let me know what your thoughts are. Thank you all who reply.

    Front diff or Driveaxles BROKE?

    This is true on a explorer with 4wd. On a Mountaineer with AWD, the brown wire mod is not an option. AWD transfer case has the viscous couplings and reacts to the slippage and then diverts the power. It was interesting finding this out, luckily there wasnt any traffic when i gunned it, and it...

    Front diff or Driveaxles BROKE?

    Well, turns out i now realize why im not a mechanic!! lol. The short and simple answer to this prob WAS the front driveline.. 250$ bucks and life is back on track until the next speedbump of life. Oh, just so everyone is clear- you can drive without the front driveline! It DOESNT help with gas...

    Front diff or Driveaxles BROKE?

    kinda thought that at first too, but when i got under the truck while it was in drive with the wheels moving, (kids dont try that at home!!) the noise was coming from the transfer case, thats why i decided to try dropping the front driveline. And wouldnt the CV shaft still make the noise with...

    Front diff or Driveaxles BROKE?

    Thank you so much for the offer! OK, so heres what i got so far. I jacked it up, rotated drivers side tire and passenger side spun opposite like normal( no noticable click noise, a lil slop). Start the vehicle while raised and put in drive and let the wheels move, vibration and noise continue...

    Dont get me wrong, I love my Magnaflow catback. Only prob is it doesnt eliminate that rediculous resonator. I would really like to see the differance without it.

    Strutteks installed....serious rake

    I got them on Amazon with free shipping, plus Monroe has the buy all 4 and get a rebate check for one of them. so it was a pretty good deal i think.

    Strutteks installed....serious rake

    Yah, the Monroe Quick Struts are a complete new assemblie ( strut and spring pre assembled) just like the Strutteck units. The Monroes compared to the factory ones have one more coil on the spring, I assume that will make it stronger? I like that its level though, not a big fan of the raised...

    Strutteks installed....serious rake

    I just recently got the monroe quick struts and put them on ( only got the rears done for now) , It only gave me a lil over an inch then previous, and BOTH rears were broke.

    Whats your spark plug? And why? 4.6L

    Im not sure what the benefits are, thats why i started this thread. Do platinum and iridium disapate heat better? Do they stop the plug from changing its set gap? Are double or even four points beneficial?

    Yah, I thought I had a bad viscous coupling so i disconeccted mine aswell, I didnt seem to have any problems. theres like 6 small bolts that connect it to the transfer case( i recomend a universal socket joint and some extention) and starbit or something to take off the universal joint on the...
