    Okay, so I bought an exploder awhile ago and have had quite the frikken adventure with it, (engine number 2 for me, and it’s on its second complete transmission for its life). It honestly seems like Ford has intentionally made this thing hard to work on, but I digress. I bought it for the 3rd...

    Best v8 engine replacement for 2000 explorer

    I finally found a nice 2000 Ford Explorer Limited v8 4x4 but there is a loud noise coming from the engine. So I am considering doing an engine swap with a crate engine. What is the best, most reliable, crate engine? Should I 'enhance' the engine?

    Auto 4x4 Disable possible?

    I have a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer and when the auto 4x4 engages sometimes makes me slide on turns. If I disconnect the 4x4 selector switch or put a separate switch to open that circuit behind the panel, would that disable my auto 4x4 or would it default to auto?

    How 4x4 system functions

    I was told that on my 94 Explorer XLT automatic with self engaging hubs that if the rear wheels are turning that the front wheels will not pull because the computer disengages them. Is this true and if so is there a way to bypass that so that when I'm stuck the front wheels pull as well.
