    Pulsating ABS With Normal Braking On Dry Surface

    I thought I'd add my 2-cents.... I just solved the exact problem being discussed here. To recap the issue....while applying normal, steady brake pressure on dry pavement, the ABS appears to "kick-in" and scare the daylights out of ya....possibly missing a stop sign or intersection stop light...

    Fuel door

    I have the same problem. The fuel door functions properly and when I come to a stop, the fuel door swings right open. I'm leaning towards a "quick-fix" that involves some velcro on the back of the door.....that should keep it from swinging out whilst stopping.

    Spare tire wire and ....

    Ah, the ole "spare is stuck" bit.... I had the same thing happen about one month ago. I went to drop the spare and it moved two or three inches and stopped. I read on this forum to pull on it and possibly try to gain leverage to coax it down. Unfortunately, that did not work for me...

    What To Do Next

    Yes!!! CAI=Cold air intake!!! Using the conical style air filter and such.... look around, there are deals to be had. :) I am slowly edging up the mod ladder.... I started with Rancho shocks, then the CAI, and I await the arrival of the 'mighty' XCalII flash programmer (sold to me from...

    Frustrated Explorer

    Welcome to the forum!!! Sorry to hear about your woes:( If there are any other Xplorers with that problem, it should be found here. My recommendation would be to post this in the Stock Forum for your appropriate year and see if you get more views/bites.... Good Luck!

    You might check E-bay for a Ford FOB. I scored one for $12 delivered to my door.

    What To Do Next

    What other mods (if any) have you done? I put my vote in for a CAI! Easy and not too terribly expensive.

    LOW WD and HIGH WD warning lights

    I think somewhere on the forum is the cipher for the blinking lights.... there have been numerous situations just like yours. Happy searching! :)

    Rear Seat Headrests

    I'm thinking a long pry bar to get 'em out..... then some sort of spray lube to help the up and down motion. Mine have also stiffened up over the years. I just leave 'em all the way in/down so I can drop the rear seats. Good Luck!

    Definitely search the site for the SOA. Also, consider going to a multi-pack leaf pack and possibly lift shackles in the rear. It all depends on how high you want to be..... lifted that is.... :)

    Soprano's final episode

    Rick.... I have watched The Sopranos since the first episode back in the Spring of 1999..... could the last episode have been better? Sure. Personally, I was hoping for a shoot-out between Tony and the New Yorker side. But let us look at the cool parts of the final episode.... I especially...

    Hello, I'm new

    CAI= cold air intake KKM, K&N, and many others out there XCalII= the computer programmer that can unleash the a price, of course. These will help you gain a little extra horse power and MPGs! If you want some fun reading, check out Aldive's mileage monster in his ongoing...

    Hello, I'm new

    Perhaps a CAI, a catback exhaust, and an XCalII.... all will help with performance. For looks, an air dam, tinted windows, and tons of electronics up front. I guess it all depends on budget, time, and diaper changes:)

    93 explorer Dead 4wd!

    I believe the electronic shift control module is located up under the left, rear wheel trim panel, working from inside the vehicle....and that's for 91-94 models. Take a peek and let us know if it's there!

    check your jack before your next trip!

    Good catch! If I may add to your post..... be sure to crank down the spare tire down every now and again.... I found my spare tire stuck in the up position because the winch had apparently reached it's service life!

    shakey/vibrating power steering

    I had a somewhat similar occurrence on my Sport. I read somewhere on the forum to start it up in the driveway and then turn the steering wheel full travel, both directions, a couple of times(like three or four). If my memory serves me correctly, it had something to do with turning the steering...

    98 4.0 SOHC 2 door fuel?

    Are you sure that you are talking sternly enough to it? You want to project "you better start!" as opposed to "please start for me." Remember, speak from the diaphragm:) And the drama continues..... so let's back up to where you left off.... the last check you did was the injectors with the...
