    Lean While Idling

    The engine is from a 1999 Ranger with regular emissions. Swapped all my Cali emissions over.

    Lean While Idling

    That's what I'm thinking, either so tiny it's near impossible to find, and or it's just old As for the fuel pump and filter. They're both Motorcraft, replaced about 10k miles ago. The o2 sensors have less than that, and they're Bosch. The engine has all new gaskets. Intake and everything is...

    Lean While Idling

    While driving, the fuel trims seem to almost always stay a little lean. It'll be 10-11 while idle. Around 6 under moderate throttle, and about 3 under full throttle, while driving. Seems to get closer to 0 at high rpms I think my previous idea of the lean going away under a tad throttle, is...

    Lean While Idling

    I actually cleaned it awhile ago, but I don't recall if I oiled it. Seems like something I would do, but I don't remember. I do think it works okay, but it still might not be closing 100%. Probably time to check it again. Also I didn't know about the filter! Will definitely check that too!

    Lean While Idling

    Hi everyone. Ive had this issue with my truck for forever. It even has a completely different engine now, but it's still running lean while idling. (according to the long term fuel trim) The slightest but of throttle, and it disappears. Otherwise it drives normal, sounds great, just worse MPG...

    I'M BACK! 1999 Explorer used engine swap

    Got it done!! Runs smoother than ever before! Obviously the goal, but with a junkyard engine, I was worried. Seems to be strong! I'M BACK!!

    I'M BACK! 1999 Explorer used engine swap

    So I've made a bit of progress today! Got the old engine out, but now I need to wait on a couple more gaskets, most notibly, orings for the oil filter housing. From looking up in the bottom of the replacement engine, all cylinders seem to have good cross-hatching so it's looking great! Had a...

    I'M BACK! 1999 Explorer used engine swap

    Hi guys! I'm sure you all missed me haha, I know I missed you all! Anyways after my engine being blown up for over a year, I finally got a replacement OHV. 117k mile engine from a 1999 Ranger fed emission. My Explorer is Cali emissions so, I'll have to swap a lot of parts, which is fine...

    Two Different Upstream O2 Sensors?

    Yeah, but these are actually a bit different. One has a lot of smaller holes, and the other a few bigger ones. My only guess was it had to do with different flow characteristics, or amount of heat between the left and right, and they found that making one with smaller holes would improve accuracy.

    Two Different Upstream O2 Sensors?

    Hi, so I'm just curious. I bought new upstream O2 sensors, and they are different for the right and left. They're Bosch Part #s: 13117 and 15664. Any idea why Bosch did this? My factory ones both appeared to be the same as the 15664. I thought maybe it was an error with the parts store, so I...

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    Timken Throwout bearing

    Yeah, that's probably what I'll do. Thanks for your opinion!

    Timken Throwout bearing

    More in general, but its an FTE slave out of a genuine Ford box.

    Timken Throwout bearing

    Hi, guys, back again. Lol I've searched and searched and searched, with no luck. I got a Timken Throwout bearing for my new slave, becuase people seem to really swear by them. My problem is, the bearing face stops against the retaining ring. I'm worried if I push my clutch in all the way, the...

    FTE makes Ford slave cylinders?

    I bought a "Genuine Ford" clutch slave cylinder off of Amazon, and when I opened the box, (Legit Ford box) the slave has no indication that its Ford, but it is branded FTE? I contacted Ford and have not gotten any help so far. Is this what Ford is selling as a genuine replacement? I don't know...

    Remove cable from parking brake pedal assembly?

    I think it's step 2 in my one picture, no?

    Remove cable from parking brake pedal assembly?

    Now that you say that, I feel like I remember seeing that. Hmm. lol Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the only picture I posted. I'll check my PC in a bit, and see.

    Lol nope. My only picture was post #6. @swshawaii posted that link though, which has good pictures.

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    Had lean bank 1 and 2 in my '99, partnered with sudden terrible gas milage. Checked vacuum lines, all good, replaced intake seals, problem fixed. I had troubles removing the intake from the EGR tube, and decided to remove the tube as well. I subsequently found out the previous person to do this...

    Remove cable from parking brake pedal assembly?

    I didn't bother with those steps because he stated he already had it out of the vehicle, so they seemed useless.

    New (to me) Sport, needs some work done

    Yep, I would say just do one by one. Start with the OBD port and suspension for sure. Also, it sounds like a local junkyard would be your friend.

    Remove cable from parking brake pedal assembly?

    No problem! Let us know how it goes.

    Remove cable from parking brake pedal assembly?

    This is what the Factory manual for a '99 says. Hopefully this works.

    Rear quarter window replacement.

    I personally just unbolted it, leaving a few around it slightly threaded on, then pushed on one side with my legs, then the other. However it was extremely sketchy. Do it at your own risk.. Also, to start off, you can try to just tighten the bolts, I've heard some people have had success doing...

    Rear quarter window replacement.

    I had to reseal mine. I used butyl tape from Autozone.

    A/C and release bearing?

    I just checked for probably the 30th time again, and the sound is indeed my release bearing. The A/C compressor is as quiet as can be. The only thing I can think is the A/C causes the idle to drop just enough to make it audible, and make the bearing...go weird, for lack of a better term, and...

    A/C and release bearing?

    Yeah, I figured I'd probably have to do that. Just the symptoms are what I find confusing, but that seems to be a good place to start.

    A/C and release bearing?

    Hello once again fellas. Alright I always have this rattling sound coming from around the clutch area, (Note: the M/T clutch, not A/C clutch) and no matter the circumstances, (Unless off) it's always there. But, when I turn on my A/C it gets louder, but goes away when I push in the clutch...

    1996-2001 ford explorer / mountaineer workshop manual (5567 pages!)

    I hope this is okay, based on the thread I also linked, it is. 1996-1999 Ford Service Manual DVD: https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6901446/1996-1999_Ford_Service_Manual_DVD_ISO Thread on how to install it, and a disclaimer...

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    Went to the junkyard and bought a long console to install in the '99 (MT) Made significant progress on the modifications. I will post pictures when I'm completed. I think it should look pretty bada**!

    How to diagnose No Start when it starts?

    Good job! As I was reading, I was thinking fuel pump, but unfortunately I didn't see your post in January.

    Added a hood support to my '99, screw struts!

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    The cheap Spectra fuel pump toasted on my '99 after ~4500 miles. Waiting for my Motorcraft one to make it here. Now I'm afraid the one in my '92 isn't long for this world. lol

    What are these wires, tail light.

    Thanks for the info. I don't really need it, but I like finding and getting stuff like that. Last time I was there I came across the instruction sheet on changing a spare tire for my first gen, so I grabbed it. I obviously know how to change a spare since I was at a junkyard, but I thought it...

    What are these wires, tail light.

    Now I know of a new random goody to look for while at the junkyard. Thanks!

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    Did the brown wire mod. I was sick of the overly sensitive 4x4. Drives much smoother now. I also forgot I had a open diff. until I tried to drift it. It didn't drift so well... Just looked like a normal turn, but louder. Hahaha

    What did you do to your Ex/Mounty/RBV today?

    Bought some window seal for the rear left window, a 3M headlight restoration kit, and ordered an Ultragauge Blue. EDIT: (Next day) The window is now sealed!
