    06 ford explorer xlt instrument cluster panel replaced with a mountaineer of the same year now wont start need help plz and thanks

    Not at every dealership but that is definitely starting to happen at a lot of them, $2 is 2-3 minutes of my time so if I spend let's say 10 minutes with an owner that's at least $10 out of my pocket it adds up quickly I'd love to paid by the hour but that will never happen at a dealership in my...

    06 ford explorer xlt instrument cluster panel replaced with a mountaineer of the same year now wont start need help plz and thanks

    If I was paid hourly I'd gladly chat with customers but under the current system of flat rate it costs me $$ to do that, it's the service advisor job to do that not mine and whether you believe it or not I do care about the customers and vehicles I work on, my $.02 I'm done.

    What 4.0 OHV Heads are quality for a stock build?

    I actually just posted a question on OHV heads on the stock side, found a great deal on OEM Ford 93TM heads on Ebay and since mines not a daily drive, has an upgraded cooling system I'm going to just run those.

    The term "stealership" wasn't earned for no reason

    Then call out that dealership! As a dealership technician I'm constantly fixing work that was done or claimed to be indy shops, and yes I do fix screw ups done by other dealerships also. The ranks of senior technicians is shrinking fast the term "techagedon" is being used within 10 years there...

    The term "stealership" wasn't earned for no reason

    Yea really great of you guys to characterize all dealerships as being "Stealerships" as a Ford technician with 33+ years of experience I really hate that term, I'll bookmark this thread and remember the comments and make sure this "Stealership" technician avoids chiming in with help next time...

    Deciphering wire color abbreviations ?

    YE=yellow, BU-WH=blue with a white trace, VT-OG= violet with an orange trace, after 33 years as a Ford technician you learn these things :) the problem is Ford is using a lot 22-gauge wires now a days and it's getting tough for my 60-year-old eyes to see the trace colors!!

    Speed Control Deactivation Switch Recall (09S09)

    All the recall involved was putting a small jumper harness between the switch on the master cylinder and the plug that goes into the switch. The issue was that they would leak fluid into the wiring harness, and it would creep through the harness, get hot and catch fire. The power wire going to...

    2018 Explorer Roof Rack Recall

    I've done a bunch of that recall but don't have any pictures. The technician will drill two small holes in each corner of the roof rack (on the inner surface) and install small fasteners that have about a 3/4" head on them, the recall works great and IMHO opinion it's how they should have been...

    2019 xlt crank, but no start

    One of the first steps as a technician working on a vehicle is to duplicate the concern, if they can't duplicate the concern and it didn't set any codes it's very hard to do anything unless there is a service message or a service bulletin on the concern and that doesn't always help either.

    2016 Driver Side Heated Seat

    There is a module it's behind the center stack, the FICM communicates with it to control the heaters so you should be able to ohm out the wiring between the module and the seat heating pads, when you get to the module make sure none of the plugs have been hot also.

    Rodents eating my wiring harness.

    I'm a Ford technician and we use this stuff once we repair the wiring and I've only ever seen one come back after being wrapped with the tape and it just had two little chew marks on it that pierced the wiring. I've been a technician for over 30 years and have been repairing rodent damage for...
