    Strange Oil Gauge Issue

    My oil gauge is going crazy lately when I accelerate and moves a bit at idle. This has happened before because my original oil switch broke. But after replacing it the problem went away. That was a few years ago. This time my oil gauge is going crazy but only when my battery gauge is low...

    2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4 door Center Console Removal?

    The forum search feature doesn't seem to work (just gives me errors when I try to search for anything). What is the trick with removing the center console? I found various instructions, removed all of the bolts/nuts, and then hit the center bracket backwards to push to console back "at least 2...

    Fuel Pump Dead

    I replaced my fuel filter today so I used the method were you pull the relay to the pump while it’s running to remove pressure from the lines. That definitely worked as I changed the filter and the lines were depressurized. But now my pump isn’t turning on, I don’t hear the usual whirl sound and...

    Shock Advice Needed

    I recently installed lift keys on my X and gained about 3” of lift. The stock length RS9000’s feel like they’re over extended. I see that Cherokee shocks use the same mount types as the Explorer with a stem top mount and a bar pin bottom mount. Has anyone used Cherokee shocks on their Explorer...

    Question about swapping axle gears.

    I’m thinking of changing my 3.55 gears to 3.73 gears. I’d like to change the gears instead of swapping the whole axle. Is a kit like this all I would need? I’d like to re-gear to run 32’s and 4.10’s aren’t an option for me. Thanks for any input...

    Crooked torsion bar bolt?

    :confused2: I noticed that one side of my truck is sitting higher than the other when I went to install front sway bar links. Do I have to re-seat the bracket that the torsion bolt goes through? I know it definitely shouldn’t be crooked.

    Camshaft Synchronizer Question 4.0 OHV

    I’ve got the infamous camshaft synchronizer squeaking sound on cold starts. I had a shop replace the lower intake and camshaft synchronizer gaskets last week and the truck has developed a squeaking sound in the rear of the engine. I took the belt off and the sound is still there. The mechanic...

I recently moved from West TN to South Texas for work and am unable to bring all 4 vehicles with me + manage selling my house, moving, building a new house, and manage everything else.

    Second Gen Cabin Air Filter

    I’ve been wondering how feasible it would be to install a cabin air filter in a second gen. I see that the door goes up and closes off the highlighted area when Max AC is selected, so that must mean that’s where outside air is pulled in. I don’t have ac diagrams and have never taken apart...

    Max AC Heat Adjustment

    Does everyone else’s Max AC get warmer if they turn the ac dial to heat? My normal AC gets warmer as I turn up the heat, but I can have the heat all the way up during Max AC and it’ll still be really cold air. From what I understand Max AC only differs since it recirculates air from the cabin...

    I Bought Some Taillight Guards Off eBay

    I finally found some second gen taillight guards. I was going to purchase the Black Horse brand but I found these for $89. They look great and were apparently packaged in 2001, judging from the newspaper they were wrapped in. They were made by a company that doesn’t appear on google...

    Lift Shackles Touching Frame

    I bought a leveling kit that included torsion keys and lift shackles. The keys are working fine but the shackles are giving me issues. I contacted the seller and they informed me that I have them installed correctly, but the shackles rest on the frame. Another customer told me that’s how...

    After Market Wheel Size Question

    I’m looking into replacing my stock 15” wheels with some 16x8 0 5x114.3 wheels. I’ve searched the site and see that the bolt pattern is correct at 5x114.3 but the offset is confusing me. These wheels have 0 offset so I’m wondering if 255/70r16 tires will work with these wheels on my truck...

    2” Lift, Longer Shocks?

    Hey, everyone. I’m thinking about installing some warrior shackles and cranking the torsion bars to raise the rear and front 2”. I recently purchased some Rancho RS9000 shocks and would hate to replace them with extended shocks so soon. I don’t do serious off-roading since I’m 2WD, only light...

    Replacing A TPS With Damaged Screws, How To

    A couple of years ago I got the idea of replacing my throttle position sensor since it was the stock part. I gave up after rounding the philips screws. I then tired to use a dremel to cut a slot into the screw heads but that didn’t work out too well. Recently, my absolute throttle position...

    Torsion Bar Bolts and Adjustment Question

    I’ve always noticed that the front of my Explorer is lower on the driver’s side. I made sure my tires had equal pressure and measured at the center of the wheel well. Sure enough the driver’s side is about 1” lower than the passenger side. I crawled under the truck and the passenger side...

    Transmission Mount Opinion

    So I’ve had a vibration in the cabin that’s gotten worse over the years ever since my transmission was lifted off the mount to replace the rear main seal. It’s noticeably worse when in drive or reverse at a stop, but gets better when in park or neutral. Indicating that the vibration occurs when...

    Transmission Exhaust Mount Question

    I’m replacing all of the bushings and hangers on my exhaust and the only one I’m missing now is the one that bolts onto the transmission area. Does anyone know if you just remove the bolt and the bushing bracket comes off? I plan on supporting the exhaust with a jack. I just want to be sure...

    2000 Ford Explorer V6 - Looking For Some Transmission Advice

    Hi there, first time poster long time lurker. My Explorer had 120,000 miles on when I bought it, it approaches 180,000 now. That was about fifty thousand miles over the past 3-some years. It has always shifted well while driving, and has always had a loud clunk when I shift into reverse...

    4.0 OHV Absolute Throttle Position

    I’ve read threads on this site about the tps and it seems that 19.6% is the normal position for the TPS at idle. Mine has recently started dropping to 19.2% at times and I’m getting erratic rpms lately, like a 30-50 rpm change every second. The truck runs really smooth and the rpms stay steady...

    Oil Catch Can Installed

    I installed a 400ml catch can on my 4.0 OHV, since I was tired of finding oil on my IAC every few thousand miles. Is anyone else running one? I can post a list of parts required including hose lengths if anyone is interested. It’s still too early to tell how much oil it’ll catch, but I’m...

    Mixed Up Sensors?

    I replaced my coolant sensors almost a year ago and I’m worried I have them backwards. I’m using the dy-1144 sensor to control the gauge on the drivers side one wire connector, and the SW5174 fan switch for the computer sensor on the passenger side two wire connector. Any experts here that can...
