    Camshaft Position Sensor/Electrical Problems

    As stated in a previous post, I have multiple codes on my 2003 Ford Explorer Centennial Edition, 4.6L. After testing my alternator I figured most of them were due to it being weak. After removing countless alternators at the junkyard and testing them outside of the vehicle, I finally found one...

    2 questions in thread. New member so I apologize.

    So, I have been upgrading and restoring my 1997 Explorer XLT 4.0 OHV since I purchased it for under a Grand with 129,000 miles, almost a year ago this month. I haven't had any major issues with the vehicle at all and have put quite a few miles on (160,390) it from driving it to Florida and back...

    Recommendations on scanner tools

    I was wondering if anyone could suggest a quality scan tool that would allow me to reset my adaptive learning in my PCM for my transmission. I've seen an array of scan tools from $16 to $1200 on Amazon and I'm not really sure what's under kill and what's over kill on a tool like this. I'm...

    Can it be reprogramed?

    Just got my first Explorer. It's got a lot of miles, but the body and interior is in great shape and it drives good. It's of course got a manifold leak which I've been reading about. My question is, can I get a programmer or chip to reprogram how it shifts and kicks down? I know it's typical...

    Misfire Engine Code V6

    Engine code p0306 keeps coming back. I have replaced: spark plugs, spark plug wires, ignition coil pack, fuel injectors, and crankshaft position sensor. Each time I replaced something I disconnect the battery and when I reconnect the battery the engine code is cleared and it stays off for about...

    Starting Problems with 95' Explorer

    Over the past month or so I've had trouble with my Explorer starting. It cranks and cranks and won't start. Every once in a while it will crank and start. I took it to my local guy and he said it was the Ignition Control Module which I had him replace. Worked ok for a day or two and now...

    Cranking problems

    For the past several months, sometimes, not always, when I would start my Sport Trac, it sounded like a bad CD, like it would start to crank, then skip, then go ahead and crank. I have had the starter replaced, so I know that's not the problem. This morning, it did this skipping, but did not...

Most of the time it starts fine, no problem, but if we've been driving for awhile and the engine is hot,or its hot...

    Possible computer problem? Ignition? Injection?

    I recently replaced a rear timing chain on my 2002 4.0L SOHC Explorer because the tensioner was broken. We realigned the cams & crankshaft using the special Ford alignment tool. I also threw some Lucas upper cylinder lubricant & injector cleaner (one product) into the gas tank. Now when I...

    Anti-theft System not Disengaging

    Hi guys, I have an issue with my wife's 98 Explorer that I'm hoping someone can help with. About a month ago my wife needed to take it in to get smogged but before she did, she got a "check engine" light. Investigation on my part suggested that it was a bad sensor. Before I was able to...

    ECM needs to be replaced??

His mech (they're in a different city from me) said it showed a PO761 code. Based...
