    Rare Explorer! 60/40 front seat, manual 4x4 with auto tranny pics

    Yes they do if I recall right. I have removed mine some time back now. I am the one that posted the pics. The passenger side was mounted with that side and the same with the driver’s side. Meaning they shared the same bolts. They were just loose cloth belts with the buckles so almost any belt...

    Solved Yes! I have an answer!!! (fuel consumption woes)

    "my FIL has the 'sense' too" This is my little brother. He had a set of speakers one time and swore he could hear a problem in them so he took them back. they said nothing was wrong. He pushed them so they hooked them up to a scope and sure enough there was interference in them but beyond...

    1994 Explorer wheel bearings

    X2 I use to have to redo mine a lot more then I wanted to because the nut kept backing off. Well that is tell I did what most here do and that is bring it down on the last step good and tight but past the book speck! Also using the right tools and bearings is never a bad thing, so get the...

    Wheel Bearing Races

    For over 20 years I have only tapped them in or out as needed with a hammer, socket extension, and an old used bearing race. For the grease seal I use an old board that is as wide if not wider then the seal and about 1/2 thick to tap it in nice and flat.

    Oil coolers.

    I also run a large B and M cooler in line with the stock one. The stock one and my B&M are both after the heat exchanger in the radiator. also stacked plate is better then a tube and fin cooler. To add one take the line from your one in front of the condenser that goes to the metal line feeding...

    procomp shocks

    From what I have read and been told gas = better shocks as they hold the road better and give more control and help stop foaming of the shock oil. The foaming is caused by the heating of the oil in them but with the gas charge this is held off longer as the oil is kept cooler when under...

    Rear Brakes Locking Up

    Two thoughts here. one I agree with the smallness of the disk brake drum and its also why I have not done this swap out my self along with the proportioning deference also and after having some disk brake lock up and cit rotors on the rear of a car every winter I like the idea of a covered...

    Changing a radiator

    Replace all hoses and thermostat no matter when they were changed last and use new clean fluids! if any wonder why just ask and I can tell you how one by one I blew hoses over a few months because I did not do that and then lost the T stat in the end also. All coasted me more in the end then...

    starter motor question

    The sensor for the temp gauge is the one with only one wire on it and as you stand in front of the X with the hood open it’s the one on the left of the thermostat housing if I am not wrong. The other one is only for the ECU and its feed back. to check and make sure its your sender take the...

    Rough Idle when warmed up

    There are two temp sensors one with one wire (it runs the dash gauge only and that is what your reading inside) and the other one (has two wires and is the one the ECU uses) and is the one you want to change as its the one used for feed back to the computer. If not reading right maybe telling...

    dead battery all the time...

    Take a volt reading across the battery its self if its say 10.5 volt or less most likely a dead cell. Also take the caps off if it’s a wet cell and look to see that the water in each cell is to the top and covering the plates. I have found when the water is low it will destroy that cell over...

    starter motor question

    Hmm mine will do the same now and then start to turn the motor over then just stop and only click. After a bit say 5 minutes it will act like nothings wrong at all and starts up just like normal. So Roadrunner777 how would a bad / low pump pressure do this? I could see it not starting...

    CEL when cold outside... NO CEL When warm...

    Being your only throwing a code for one side that just about rules out the MAF sensor and every thing tell the intake. Now on the side that is effected you could have an intake leak and more likely on the lower intake gasket (known issue with the blots coming lose at times) but it also could be...

    Loss of Braking

    Sounds like you know what the problem is but I would test yours any way to make sure. If you replace nothing special just replace then bleed by what option you feel the best doing and or have the tools / help t do. You only have to worry about the ABS system if you already have air in it now...

    Temperature guage/coolant level

    What Amime said x2 also if when you removed the cap and it was warm and you did not have any pressure or very little to were the motor was at normal temp and it did not spray at all I would say you also may have a leak and its not keeping in the pressure . This I will also cause the change...

    Loss of Braking

    If the fluid system is good and no leaks you should be able to still stop an auto with it just like an old none powered brake auto from days gone by firm peddle feel and no going to floor. A soft peddle no pressure but also no leaks as has been said MC or booster. 1st one I would go to...

    Sea-Foam

    1st the check engine light going on that would be normal as you had removed the air intake tube and were not pulling air threw the MAF sensor and were instead running with un metered air so it would / could also set the check engine light for other sensors such as lean on the O2'a , and ect. No...

    Need Help Ordering New Rotors

    Anime not disagree with you at all. As I said it’s why I do not suggest nor normally post any thing about it. It is also why I stipulated that for a street driven truck I would have ABS! I also said how you had explained it in your post well also. I just feel it dose a disservice to say a part...

    Need Help Ordering New Rotors

    The point I was making is that they can be used and will work but that you will not have ABS because of the missing tone rings I said this after some incorrect information had been posted stating they would not work. . Anime did explain the deference’s in his post just not that they can in fact...

    water out the of the tailpipe

    My mother had this same problem on her Toyota car. Every year and half to two year’s new muffler and tail pipe. The most she normally drives is about 2 or 3 miles each way and the car sits for at lest an hour or more at the half way mark. The shop that did the muffler and tail pipe always...

    cruise control problem

    I would have to say I agree with every one here but I would start with the speed sensor then move to the buttons and so forth. I know on our car if the buttons get dirty they will stop working and cleaning them always gets them working again. Never has had a problem on the X so can not speak...

    Need Help Ordering New Rotors

    Ummm sorry but a rotor from a 91 0r 92 will work on a 93 and 94. you will not have ABS because they do not have the tone ring and that is the only deference. It is what I am running right now and have been for about 3 years now. I just pulled the relay for the ABS and also pulled the dash light...
