    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...

    Help with A/C

    The A/C system has been down on my 03 Explorer XLT for about 2 years now. Last year I used UV dye to no avail in an attempt to find a leak, I could not find one. It will hold a charge but slowly get less cold and then blow warm. What else could cause this? Thanks

    4.0 OHV Idle Air Control part number?

    Does anyone know what the part number is for the motorcraft IAC? I see CX1914, but then there's different numbers as well. Such as YU3E9F715BA and YU3Z9F715BA. This is somewhat confusing.
