    What is your axle ratio?? My 98 with the 4.0 SOHC and 3.73 can tow up to 5200 lbs. If you have the 3.55 axle it will tow less. The 4.0 OHV will tow less too.

    trans question

    In relation to this thread I've been pondering about this issue: According to my owner's manual I have a 5-speed auto. What do they consider the 5th gear? I have 1,2,D, and R on the column. My dad's '03 explorer is considered a 5-speed also but he has 1,2,3,D and R on his column. Do they...

    Something draining battery?

    More than likely its your DVD/LCD monitor. Somewhere you or the instructions that came with it (not sure if you did it yourself or followed directions) messed up with wiring. BTW, where is Circle Pines? sounds familiar....

    Nissan Xterra? Yay/Nay?

    Superchargers and turbochargers USUALLY hold performance good up to very high altitudes........thats why majority of planes coming out of or thru Colorado or the Rockies in general have turbos........piston engines anyways. Imagine what your BII could do with a supercharger.......... ;) I...

    Nissan Xterra? Yay/Nay?

    That I did not know! Wish planes had a system like that.......instead I would have to find the right mixture setting.......sorry getting off topic here! Back on topic: I think the Xterra looks cool and has the capability of offroading...... Might be the next vehicle I would get if my Ex...

    Door wont open from the inside

    You should invest in an Explorer mechanics book, ie Hayes, etc. It has helped me out a lot with repairs and general information.........of course not as good as what this site offers for info! I've taken apart my drivers side door trim. If my memory serves me right, you need to unscrew the...
