    Washer Pump not pumping

    Your welcome. Coincidentally, my pump stopped working this week and I had to clean the relay terminals and sockets with electrical cleaner. It worked a second time. There was a significant amount of dirt inside the small relay box.

    Codes 174, 301 & 306

    I agree. I first pulled the #6 plug and found the insulator cracked on it. I have deep plug wells, so I'm sure there was sparking to the engine block...I should have run my car in a dark garage. After I replaced the #6 plug, the engine ran like a top. I went ahead and replace #1 plug...

    Codes 174, 301 & 306

    Cracked Insulator on Cyl 6 Spark Plug I must have cracked the insulator when I put in the new plugs months ago. I replaced the plug and the codes are gone and the engine is running like a top.

    Codes 174, 301 & 306

    Thanks 2000StreetRod. The fuel filter was replaced this year so I will focus on the fuel pump pressure and regulator diaphragm along with the vacuum components starting at the MAF and working to the intake manifold - appreciate the link to the photos. As I go through a set of checks I will...

    Codes 174, 301 & 306

    My 1997 Ford Explorer, SOHC V6 has been posting the same codes for months. I clear the 174 (System to Lean Bank 2), 301 (Cyl 1 Misfire) and 306 (Cyl 6 Misfire) and they return within hours. I have replaced some parts but to no avail... all spark plugs, all plug wires and the ignition coil...

    Washer Pump not pumping

    Well, my battery was dead (<30 days new) in the morning, so I pull both relays and jumped it. I discovered that the rear washer pump runs with both relays pulled.

    Washer Pump not pumping

    dirty relay contacts are the culprit Thanks DCYDD, I found the small relay box under the air intake on the passenger side of the engine, swapped the 2 relays at the firewall end and the front pump works now. The owner's manual does not even mention the small relay box. I pulled both and...

    Washer Pump not pumping

    Good suggestion. With 12vdc at the pump connector when i press the washer switch on the new multifunction module could the a faulty relay result in lower current to drive the pump? How do I test the relay?

    Washer Pump not pumping

    Switch is ok, have tried used and new pumps. Thanks for the feedback. I have a new multiswitch in the column - it had bad blinker connections and I've replaced the suspect front pump with 2 used pumps from the junkyard and just recently a new pump (~$16) from Pep Boys. No sound from any of...

    Washer Pump not pumping

    I have a '97 Explorer. The rear pump works, but the front pump does not - no sound when activating the front washer. The multiswitch is good, I test 12VDC at the pump terminals when activating it. But my existing pump, two used pumps and a new pump from the autostore do not make a noise when...

    No Heat - EATC system or Heater Core

    Blend Door Actuator disconnected, making clicking noise So I pulled out the glove box and found the electrical connector to the actuator unplugged (by the previous owner). Plugging it in, the motor made clicking sounds. I removed the motor and plugged it back in and the clicking sounds...

    No Heat - EATC system or Heater Core

    I have a 1997 Explorer EB V6 4.0 SOHC with the EATC. Everything works on the EATC panel except the defrost, panel or floor does not blow warm/hot air when the temp setpoint is high (75-90). The thermostat works (just changed to a new 195 degF), coolant is new, system was flushed with Prestone...

    Transmission Delay A4LD

    We could have different issues. I have never added fluid over the past 4 years. The delay occurs in both Reverse and Drive gears when cold. The transmission does not lurch. Thanks for sharing your issues - I have another post about the possibility of torque converter being the cause for the...

    Transmission Delay A4LD

    Torque Converter I have found some references to torque converter fluid flow back due to a bad cooler filter. This was for a GM transmission, does the Explorer have cooler filters? Maybe this is the problem. The issue of slipping in the morning or after a longer time switched off, was...

    Transmission Delay A4LD

    My '93 Explorer has tranmission delay when initiating reverse to get out of my garage and back into drive to proceed down the street. Same thing happend after a 1 mile trip to the store and getting out of my parking spot. This is consistent. What are the culprits (bands, solenoids, ???). I...

    4x4 auto hubs on '93 noisy on tight turns.

    Thanks Thanks Mark. I agree, the auto hubs are less trouble to replace.

    4x4 auto hubs on '93 noisy on tight turns.

    4x4 was working fine. :navajo:I just replaced my front axle rotors and bearings during a brake replacement. Everything went fine. Two weeks later, I decided to test the 4x4 auto hubs and found that the passenger side makes a lot of noise during tight turns (driving around a cul-de-sac)...
