    2007 V8 4.6 Transmission Shift Major Malfunction, Wrench, Traction Control Indicator On and c

    Reporting on an ugly situation with a happy ending. One cold morning after my truck was sitting outside all week (0 degrees F) after warm up I was driving about 45 to 50 MPH in heavy traffic. All of a sudden Ol' Blue had a huge mis-shift, hard enough to describe as being hit from the rear. I...

    2007 Triton V8 4.6 Leaks drips of oil off of AC Compressor - Problem Solved

    Very odd scenario happening on my 2007 EB with the Triton 4.6 V8. Prominent oil drips on the floor after adding oil after oil change. Then followed by a periodic drip every week or so after a few hundred miles. Under the vehicle the only thing I could see is a forming drip off of the AC...

    Slight front end humm and vibration at 75 MPH - SOLVED

    Posting as I had a unique experience with front wheel hub bearings on my '07 Explorer with 130K miles. At 110K miles I noticed a slight humming noise and ever so slight vibration at 78+ MPH, the problem went away under 78 MPH. This year at 130K miles it started happening at 70 MPH, not a good...

    How to disable the 4 wheel drive on a 2007 v8

    Forgot to mention my in town mileage is consistently 1.5 mpg better in 2x4. Not bragging but 12 to 13.5 in December in MN is alright

    How to disable the 4 wheel drive on a 2007 v8

    1,000 miles of motoring and no problems with the 4x4 disabled Well the cutoff switch is working great. Recently had a foot of snow. Engaged the 4x4 at will no problems. Again I am not doing this to whip cookies. Interstingly I can enable / disable on the fly. The best indication of it being...

    How to disable the 4 wheel drive on a 2007 v8

    I am down to removing only one (1) wire to effectively disable the 4x4 from engaging. The 4x4 Module can be found under the passenger side dash, directly above where the tip of your left foot would be if sitting in the seat. The module itself is about 1"x3"x3" size and has two downward facing...

    How to disable the 4 wheel drive on a 2007 v8

    Since my last post I haven't had a "remove object from passenger side" error presented in the dash. Both wire remain removed from the 4WD Module and I am back to driving with bliss, meaning it drives like a rear wheel drive caddilac sedan. Now for my next project, doing a professional switch...

    2006 Explorer 6 speed transmission shifting issue - update

    A Ford transmission flush will run you about $400, I would for sure bring it to a reputable place. There is more than $140 worth of synthetic fluids in the tranny itself. I had the TSB done 6 months ago and couldn't be happier; did at the same time as the flush. As for miss-shifting at...

    How to disable the 4 wheel drive on a 2007 v8

    Well I did some wiring diagram reading on the 4WD module and found "bliss" but later was presented with a computer fault on the dash display reading ... "Remove Object From Passenger Side", indicative of a loose wire. Removing the Grey/Orange and Green/Red wires from the harness blocked the 4x4...

    How to disable the 4 wheel drive on a 2007 v8

    Trying to effectively disable my 4 wheel drive during my summer driving. Pulling the 4x4 fuse does the trick however, the wrench (check engine) light comes on after starting requiring me to hit reset everytime I drive. I have heard of the "brown wire mod" on <= 2005 year models but have not...

    2007 Mercury Mountaineer deployable power running boards

    Opposite effect. Door opened and running board closes Did a clean out and lube of the hinges with Teflon chain lube. Reassembled and the running board does the opposite of what it should. Open door = closed boards and closed door = open boards. Tomorrow I am going to check the install...

    Axle Damper: Replace or not worth it?

    Replaced axel shaft dampener I replaced mine last week on my 2000 EB with 120K miles on it, made a huge difference to the rear end stability. Most noticeable when going over curbs at an angle and the tightness of the rear end at freeway speeds when making quick lane changes. Best $30 I ever...
