    Charging system question

    Hey, guys, thanks for the replies. I checked output voltage at the B+ post on the alternator, it matched battery voltage and didn't come up with the engine running so I took the alt down to the parts store and had it tested. Tested bad so I took it apart. I had rebuilt the alternator last year...

    Charging system question

    So I've been a member here for awhile but post very little. Almost every question or issue I've had was answered or gave enough guidance to figure out my question. Here's one I could not find: My Exploder is a 97 XLT with the 5.0. It is not charging. For the last month or more the dash gauge...

    4R55E: Broken hard parts?

    Back again. Thought I'd follow up on this and tell you all that there were indeed broken parts in the trans. The forward gear set was brokededed. The planet was gunny-bag, the ring gear was in three pieces, the sun gear was munched, and the shell looked like someone took a hammer to the inside...

    Need help to swap a transmission

    I'm swapping my daughter's 4R55E out of her '96 w/4.0 for a '97 5R55E. I am unclear as to whether I can leave the bellhousing on the '97 trans when I stick it in there. Yes/no?

    4R55E: Broken hard parts?

    Thanks for the suggestions. Any ideas about why the car can't be pushed backward? Sprag, maybe?

    4R55E: Broken hard parts?

    Resurrecting this thread, I got busy with a bunch of other stuff and had to put this on the back burner. Anybody else have any input or educated guesses about what the problem may be? I'm getting ready to pull the trans out, it would be great to have a clue as to what to look for.

    4R55E: Broken hard parts?

    Hello, everyone. My daughter's '95 XLT with 4.0/4R55E is misbehaving, and I think I'm gonna do my first automatic transmission rebuild. I have experience building engines, but no transmissions. Until now. The trans has no reverse and no 1st gear. In Drive the car starts off slowly, the engine...

    Got Hit, Now Camber is Buggered

    I understand that some would consider it a bad move to fix this sort of thing myself. That's okay. I'll make it drivable, use it for a work rig, etc. then either sell it and get another Exploder or use it for a family back-up car. I sure like the 5.0, my first was a V6/manual. Thanks for all the...

    Got Hit, Now Camber is Buggered

    Cran, that is conventional wisdom, but I'm trying to make this car drivable with the bare minimum of shop time. The insurance has already paid me more than I had into the vehicle including the new tires, so I'm ahead so far. I was just hoping for guesses as to where to start investigating based...

    Got Hit, Now Camber is Buggered

    My daughter was driving my '97 Exploder XLT (5.0, AWD) when she was T-boned by a kid she knows that blew a stoplight. Everyone's OK, no injuries, their insurance company (Progressive) was quick to adjust, and when I mentioned that I wanted to fix it myself they said OK, they could just cut me a...
