the injectors will not fire
2000 Explorer pats disables the injectors.....crank crank crank all day long
However the THEFT light would be blinking rapidly letting you know there is an issue
The theft light should go off during cranking....that indicates a properly working PATS system is happy...
I posted the 2003 ranger wiring book in your other thread, $30 on ebay. Having the book is the only way to go IMO
yes it is just that simple, try contacting Lasota Racing, he can flash these PCM's and anyone who can tune or flash these PCM can remove the auto trans functions
There are a few...
none of us are getting any younger! What I did was put some luxury and a v8 into the old rides...... heated and cooled seats, front and rear camera's, bluetooth, now if I could just make the button that folds the seats up and closes the hatch we would be in business!! Oh and I want to be able to...
yes somebody just had to get one and figure out how to wire it up in these Fords.... Getting the box is easy, doing the wiring is pretty simple, just have to sort out where to grab the signal and where to send it back properly without messing with ABS brakes.
Then it was all about sorting out...
Dang!! How do you get hit so often? Is it part of your career that puts you in harms way?
I know people love that 3v 4.6 I am pretty sure I have seen other 4.6 owners swap from the 2v to the 3v on here....have you tried a search?
I love my excursion....once you daily drive an excursion with 3...
Yes with the CORRECT TOOLS you MIGHT be able to replace it in place, not much room to work in there.
The tool I posted is your best chance
First jack the truck way up, get under there, clean the area and see what you are dealing with........
No reason to be baffled anymore
YES THERE IS A WAY
Its called the Dakota Digital BT-1000
I have installed a few of them now
You can use the signal from the 8.8 speed sensor, grab it and send it to the dakota box, buffer the signal and send it back to the PCM, GEM, Speedo, cruise control, etc...
the awd cases can last 250-300K miles....with regular fluid changes. Or they can explode at 150K miles, without fluid changes and if they are beat on, like running a tire low often, running without a front d shaft, these things will generate heat and the lifespan is cut short
Since you have a...
Hmmmmmmmm this is a good one. The 2003 Ranger uses a slightly different pats system then the 01 explorer so you cannot just swap in the 03 ranger PCM and pats and call it good. I wish, that would be too easy
You may consider having your 01 explorer pcm actually tuned to forget about the auto...
10mm or 13mm for the differential studs
13 and 15mm for the upper ball joint pinch bolt
34mm cv axle nuts (usually)
I use sockets and ratchets
Typically I will use a dewalt 20V electric impact when I am taking things apart
My 20V impact will ever remove the cv axle nuts which are torqued to...
I have seen PLENTY of 5.0 trucks with a KNOCK, usually a spun bearing on the crankshaft or a broken/bad lifter
Almost always these 5.0 have seen little to no maintenance OR were run WITHOUT OIL
As much as I do not like to see this I am happy to because it means I get a parts donor for CHEAP CHEAP
AS @RickOTR pointed out Rockauto lists them under "WHEEL BEARING"
not wheel bearing and hub
Since you are RWD the wheel bearings are not one with the hub (often called a unit bearing) instead you have traditional style spindle and bearings...
Check this out:
maybe possible in the truck with one of those
I saw it on "trucks" or one of those shows last week and now I must have one
it is indeed a U joint
This is known as the "stub shaft" on the passenger side of the TTB front differential
The stub shaft is retained in the diff with a c clip, so you cannot remove the shaft from the diff without dropping the diff off of the beam.
Some have had good luck replacing that U...
The top of that bolt is a stamped nut with a lock washer, meaning the nut will stay in place when you spin the bolt, no need to put a wrench on it
Removing the front diff takes me about 45 minutes usually and that includes jacking up the truck putting on two jack stands, removing the CV axle...
the ranger I have downstairs has the BTF uppers, they will give you more clearance at that spring for sure.......much more then stock.
My wifes FJ cruiser the UCA hits her FOX coilover spring too....until we can afford to get some nice aftermarket UCA's I just took a grinder to her stock bits...
gotta love HF
The multi tool is a winner, those suckers will cut through just about anything. I mostly use the dewalt cordless these days but the plug in HF units are tough as nails. The extendable 1/4 - 3/8" ratchet is one of my go to tools, I have two of them in my box at all times. The new...
