I noticed the epc pressure ranged from 10-65 psi while driving, which is low as per the Ford shop manual. If the valve body gasket was blown, wouldn't it not shift or...

    5r55e update question

    Im trying to cure some inconsistent shifting in my 03 sport Trac with a 5r55e. Was the updated epc solenoid, bonded seperator plate and the other pieces in the valve body update installed from the factory on these? I noticed the update TSB stopped at the 2002 model year.

    I changed out the plugs and wires on my 03 4.0 ST Saturday, motorcraft plugs, autozone wires. We had a storm and it blew blooms all over it. I was rinsing off the hood with a garden hose, when I noticed the hood wasn't latched all the way down. Nothing seemed wet. I've noticed now it'll...

    Superduty steering wheel swap

    I ran across this photo in a drag magazine in a 2002 explorer sport. It's running a carbureted small block, so I don't believe the cruise or airbag is hooked up. Looks like it'll physically fit, wondered if anyone knew what it'd take to make the switches and airbag work properly in one of these...

    Matching up woodgrain radio bezel

    I recently came across a Nos woodgrain radio bezel to replace a black broken one. Has anyone matched this to a vinyl wrap design? Closest thing I've found is bubinga 3m di-noc vinyl. I was hoping to wrap some switch panels to match it, like on a lariat interior.
