    ...If changing my '06 Ex tires from 235 70R 16 to 245 70R 16 would affect driving and handling? I have an Honda Passport 2000 that needs a new engine, but has 4 new tires. I would like to use those tires to change the old Michelin on my Ex with these Firestone. Is there going to be a problem...

    2006 explorer radiator

    The day after I bought the Ex, the radiator was leaking. Took it back to the previous owner who replaced the radiator. Two days later I changed the cap from 20psi to 16psi, and so far everything is good.:thumbsup:

    Do I need a new battery? Need my truck this weekend for hauling stuff!!!

    NJExplorerfan, We had no winter in Jersey this year. LOL. The batteries sold by COSTCO are made by Interstate, the price is great and the quality excellent. A lot cheaper than Sears.

    Chipped tinted window

    Today, somebody hit my rear left glass on my Ex and chipped it. The window is tinted. Is there a kit available to fix it or do I have to go to a windows repair shop? I've been told that it has to be filled with resin. Is that true? Thank you for your input. :scratch:

    Clean and shiny engine

    Before I bought my Ex06 last December, I went to several dealers and every car I saw had a clean and spotless engine. Not that it enticed me, but made the car look much better. What should I do to give my car that engine "look"? Is that going to cause some trouble with the electronic system...

    Amsoil and rad cap

    edwx, the link is great, but it has different opinions. How a 16psi cap radiator will affect te engine, in a weather like the one in the Norteast9New Jersey)? NAPA has the 16psi radiator cap for $8.50. Should I go for it?

    Amsoil and rad cap

    Feetwet, I'm still undecided with the oil. I have read so many reviews about them that at this moment I'm confused. lol Some of them say that the AMSOIL gets thicker after a while, and it's on the long run no too good for the engine. However, Quaker State, being cheaper has a good reviews. Is...

    Amsoil and rad cap

    I just bought a 06 Ex Xls, that looks and ride like great. I bought it from the second owner who never used for a year(wife drives a Mercedes 500, don't like trucks).
