    Hypertech says "NO" to programmer for 99 up Explorers

    I am not bashing the company I am justy including my emails and their responses: I used your Power Search feature, but it didnt list the part number for my 99 Explorer 5.0L. You list 41013 for the 97, and 41015 for the 98. I thought the 96 up 5.0L's had the same computers. If you don't...

    One of my rear speakers doesnt have any power coming off the wires. It seems to be connected at the back of the radio. Could the part of the radio that powers that speaker be burnt up? My S10 had the same problem and when I changed to an aftermarket radio, the speaker worked fine. I want to...

    Explain "offset"

    What does it mean when a rim says +27mm offset or -27mm offset? I am used to seeing terms of '4" backspace' rather than offset. Can someone tell me how to convert offset to backspace?

    Help! Friends Explorer is running hot!

    Heres the deal. The Explorer can idle all day and the temp will stay in the lower half of the temp guage but when you start driving it and get on the hwy the temp will slowly start to creep up and get near the hot mark on the gauge. It has a new thermostat, coolant, hoses. The clutch fan...
