    5.0 Explorer lower radiator hoses- cannot locate

    You may consider ditching the oil cooler if you plan to keep this truck for a long time The 96-97 5.0 had the oil cooler in the lower rad hose, they are a failure point and can mix water w oil when they go bad.

    Shop says my explorer is finished, is this true?!

    I don’t think it’s your cat converter causing lean code I think the mechanic who did the repair of the fuel injectors sucks and is clueless how to repair these engines Your misfire code was caused by a faulty injector. To access the injectors they had to remove intake manifold. Lean both...

    98 awd to 4x4 transfer case mods?

    Interesting! I was just going by what I have seen with 3.8 sc going into rangers I guess it was incorrect or are these two different 3.8 engines With conversions like this it will be up to you to make some parts very likely

    98 awd to 4x4 transfer case mods?

    3.8l is a 5.0 missing two cylinders You need explorer 5.0 mounts and engine plates, I bet those would work and place the new engine correctly You can use any 31 spline, 6 bolt drivers drop t case np205 np208 1356 or 4406 are the popular choices

    1992 Explorer wont start once it is warm

    Dry fuel system maybe some debris made its way up to an injector You need to solve that misfire, check codes replace Light bilb Or use obd1 scanner 32-34 psi is acceptable gotta check it when the No start condition occurs too
