    1992 Explorer, seized tranny and fried starter wire

    Hello, just swapped a bad tranny out of my 1992 xlt for a good one out of my '91. Finally got the whole thing in the '92, but when I go to start it I just hear a click, I believe from the starter solenoid making the click. I leave the key at the on position and pop the hood only to find smoke...

And now the rear wheel cylinder because one was locked up. And the other was on the way. I bled the brakes over and over and still have no pedal. In the...

    1992 Drivers speaker problem

    So I have a 1992 explorer 4 door with almost 200,000 miles. Today I noticed that my drivers speaker wasn't working. And these are aftermarket speakers that have worked perfectly for months.

    1992 Explorer radio fiasco.

I have a much nicer and newer stereo that I would like to install, but I have no experience doing this. The stereo that was in there was not the factory stereo, and upon pulling it out, we...
