    EGR valve

    Make sure you remove, and clean the tube going from the exhaust man to the egr as well. Also peel back the wire loom on the harness, and make sure the wires aren’t crumbling. My 06 had sections of wiring at various pigtails that were brittle, and the wires were touching.

    Halp! Running rich, and rough

    Hey everyone, I’ve run into a driveability issue, and was wondering if anyone can help me. I have a 2006 xlt, 4.0 150,000 miles recently it started stalling, and running rough on me no codes, no lights. I haven’t done anything crazy to it, and haven’t changed anything since last year when I did...

    KKM first impressions

    I mean 17.5 miles. Sorry for the typo. That's just my work commute, I didn't feel it was necessary to breakdown my drive completely. Also this is only after one week of driving with varying temperatures, in a city with inconsistent traffic. So take the data for what it is, just my experience...

    KKM first impressions

    I've been monitoring short term, and long term fuel trim, as well as O2 readings, and haven't seen anything to suggest that it's running lean. Keep in mind that I have a V6, and unhooked the battery to reset the PCM. My Matco scanner is pretty cheap, and the data refresh rate isn't quite as fast...

    KKM first impressions

    So I received my KKM intake last Monday, and figured after I week I'd let everybody know how it's been since. Over all installation was easy, took maybe 5-10 minutes. As far as performance, I've notices fuel mileage has improved more than anything. My commute is primarily highway for about...

    2006 Eddie Bauer Explorer Overheating?

    My fan clutch is always spinning. I think the clean clutches on these are computer controlled, not relay controlled like fans that aren't run off the water pump .

    Plasti-dipped my wheels

    Here's a pic of mine with the center cap done. Dirty I know. Only suggestion I have for anyone looking to dip wheels, have them static balanced first with tape weight if possible. Otherwise if the weight comes off you'll see the original finish underneath. Trial and error lol need to rebalance...

    Got code P0353 So I.... 2008 explorer EB v6 4.0

    Make sure you wrap those wires up real good with wire loom. If they're still rubbing a little piece of hose cut down one side, and slid over the bracket should help. Sounds like you may have figured it out, can you post a picture of the wires you repaired so we can get a good idea of where, and...

    You could change your belt, and tensioner. That'll fix it.
