    06 Explorer AC leak

    Thanks for the info. My intent was never to do the repair myself. Adding the refrigerant was only a test to confirm the presence of a leak. I had just hoped I might be able to isolate the location of the leak so as not to have the guy at the shop feed me a line and try to rip me off. I've...

    06 Explorer AC leak

    Okay after examining a bit further I think the problem does not lie in the rear section. I believe the sound I'm hearing is merely the movement of air / fluid through the evaporator / lines in the rear. I can also feel movement through the return tube from the rear. There is a fitting where the...

    06 Explorer AC leak

    Hi all, I've got an '06 explorer which appears to have an AC leak. After a bit of experimentation I believe it is coming from the rear of the vehicle. The first symptom was that the front air on the driver's side would not get cold but the passenger's side would. Then it stopped...

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    All right so it is the intermediate band. It looked to me like something that couldn't be done without taking everything apart, but then I've never rebuilt an automatic transmission before. I think I've rebuilt just about everything else. Jake

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    Are all three adjustable. I only noticed two adjusters looking at the case from the outside. Sounds like from your description the intermediate band is what broke. Jake

    Safe to buy an '03?

    Well I certainly don't plan to mod it and I don't do any racing. I do a reasonable amount of towing with the '92. Jake

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    Which band is closest to the rear? That's the one that broke. I can see the end of the band up there. And what's involved in the replacement. Jake

    Safe to buy an '03?

    You're not giving me a high degree of confidence here. Sounds like I should plan on the transmission going out at some point and the engine might go too? Oh boy. Jake

    Safe to buy an '03?

    So I've decided not to rebuild the trans on my '92. I found a 2003 Explorer that's caught my eye. It's an XLT 4WD with the 4.6L V8. It's got 60,000 miles on it. Carfax shows clean title but it's been through three owners. First owner is listed as a fleet vehicle with the subsequent two being...

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    Band broken So I dropped the pan this morning. One of the bands is broken. The end of the band and the adjuster were sitting in the bottom of the pan. Hello ... kidney foundation? :) My wife is excited. The vehicle just isn't worth the effort at this point. Thanks for your help, Jake

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    Okay so the local Ford dealer happened to have the governor. I'm not sure if it's the whole thing or just the housing. I'll find out tomorrow. And I did manage to find the thread which contained the band adjustment specifications. However, that leaves one final question. My Explorer is a 92. So...

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    Thank you for the reply. I have two questions: 1 - Where is the best place to get a new governor? Dealer? 2 - Can you point me to the procedure for band adjustment. Thank you, Jake

    `92 Explorer transmission problem

    Hello all, I hope I'm not a decade too late with this. I have a `92 Explorer XLT 4WD with about 128,000 miles on it. It's the 4.0L V6 of course and the A4LD transmission. Now for several years I've had the problem where the transmission has a delayed 1-2 shift when it's cold. From what I've...
