    question about 96 & 98 5.0 VSS/OSS

    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...

    How do you do manual up/down seat override for power seats?

    there is no manual over ride on power seats The seat tracks from a power seat are WAY different then a manual seat without the motors and gears working the seats will not move period.

    question about 96 & 98 5.0 VSS/OSS

    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...

    How often does the Viscous coupling/chain fail on the AWD V8 trucks?

    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...

    I'm a little lost need help what to do on a wiring harness!!!!!

    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...

    96 Eddie Bauer 5.0 Log

    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

    Noticed my driver side wheel hub starting to wobble, Rockauto only shows for 4x4 and NOT for 2WD. Are they the same part?

    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...

    1995 Ford Ranger 4x4 U-Joint Replace

    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...

    00 explorer remove front 4wd differential??

    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.

    Hello, have a 97 5.0 2wd and would like to make it 4x4

    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...
