    I need help finding & replacing the thermostat on my 4.0L 1997 Aerostar.

    I have only been able to find information on the 3.0L thermostat location. My vehicle is a 4.0L and I can't find the thermostat.

    4.0L Engine Year Compatibility?

    Well, 230k miles and the timing chain gave out on my '03 4.0L without warning. I'd like to put a used engine back in the car, already have the old one out, and figure $800 or less for an engine with under 150k miles is worth it, and for sure put new gears, chain, and tensioners in it. I'm pretty...

    Removing the starter ('08 4.0L)

    Hello all, I've been having trouble removing the starter. I'm able to get two bolts off on the right side of the component itself, but I'm not sure if I'm missing anything else as it's not becoming loose. It's such a pain to even reach it, so I'm kinda lost. Does anybody have any tips? Or maybe...

    4.0L SOHC Resonator Delete

    Hey! I've been wondering if deleting the resonator on the V6 will make a big difference in sound, of course it won't have the big, mean sound of a V8, but I'd like my truck to be a bit louder than it is currently. What all would removing the resonator entail? I'd like to keep everything in front...
