    Hands Free Liftgate

    So I recently purchased a 2016 Ford Explorer Sport. Everything I’m reading says that I should have the kick activated rear hatch but I can’t for the life of me get it to work. I’ve looked underneath the rear bumper and I don’t see anything? (Don’t quite know what I’m looking for anyways). I have...

    21 Explorer XLT whine while shifting

    As the title suggests ..The car barely has 2000KM and makes a whining noise when the car shifts, specially 2-3 and 3-4 gear. It is audible and can also be felt but the camera fails to pick it up accurately (or it is difficult for someone to differentiate through a video clip). It seems to reduce...

    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...
