    Coolant disappearing, where's it coming from though...

    So I've know that I had a few minor leaks since I got my Explorer last year. I just recently replaced my valve cover gaskets and cleaned up that minor oil leak. Now I have a coolant leak that seems to be getting worse. I had thought it was this hose here This is on the bottom driver side of the...

    Exhaust Flange/Donut question.

    Hello, everyone. I recently discovered that I have an exhaust leak just behind the O2 sensor on my 2000 OHV. I've seen videos of this repair on other vehicles and it seems straightforward. I'm just wondering if the stock bolts unscrew, or if they're welded on and have to be cut off. I'm seeing a...

    Hey guys I've briefly done some search on this topic, but I'm not finding any posts with direct answers. So. I believe I've got a valve cover leak and plan to fix that coming soon and would like to make sure it doesn't leak again anytime soon. I don't have the valve cover torque spreaders, are...

    '08 XLT (4.0 SOHC) Coolant Leak?

    A family member had noticed that it looked wet in a specifc part of my engine while we were taking a look and refilling the coolant. I had noticed something similar a while back, but I was foolish and thought it was just rain. I think that was a mistake :P I use 50/50 coolant and the level...

    PS Pump leaks all fluid HELP

    I recently had my power steering go out on my 2000 Ford Explorer Limited Edition 5.0 It all a sudden stopped working and I can see where the leak is coming from. Can I just replace the one line that is leaking or do I need a whole new pump. Also will it hurt the vehicle to drive it w/o PS...

    Halp!

    My muffler rusted out on my way to work, and when I went to wire it up I got dripped on by something. I got home and went to leave again, and notices a HUGE puddle of tranny fluid from the underneath of the passenger side. I watched the fluid pour (small stream) out of the pipe thing... Idk what...

    Heard a pop...

    So on my way into to work this morning, I heard a pop under the good followed by what at first sounded like something was caught on a tire. The nose would slow or speed up with my speed. No check engine light came on, no loss of power. I pulled into a gas station and realised the noise is...

    Power Steering Gone

    Hi all, I was helping someone learn how to drive today and I guess they turned the wheel to lock and held it there for too long. Now when I turn the wheel, the wheel shakes (not the car), there is a noticeable whining and surging noise only when steering, and there is also power steering fluid...

    Water Pump question.

    Hey everyone, I've had a small coolant leak for about a month now. It doesn't leak on the driveway but I can see it running down the side of the engine on the passenger side. It leaks right below the alternator. The shop that I usually go to says that there's a plastic elbow that's leaking. They...

    2002 Explorer Coolant Leak

    There is a coolant leak that mainly seems to be spouting from what looks like some sort of distributor right above the water pump. It isn't a steady leak though. There are times when the vehicle is idling and there may be a drip here and there but after just a little bit of driving the coolant...

    Oil filter leak

    When I start my truck (96 explorer xlt with the 4.0) it leaks oil like crazy. I went to tighten the oil filter and it was tight but the filter and the bracket that it gets screwed onto moved. It seems like the bolt that hold the bracket on might be loose? Mind you it's 6 degrees out and with the...

    Smoke from heater core?

    Howdy, I have a lot of coolant consumption. I have to fill up my overflow tank every month with fresh 50/50 because it just disappears. Surprisingly enough, I NEVER overheat. I drove 4 hours a couple weeks ago to this restaurant I wanted to take the old lady to and the truck ran great...

    Oil consumption/leak

    So I have 3 leaks, power steering, coolant, and oil, all of which seem to be hidden, but the lack of fluids start to show every month or two and I just top them off. The oil is the most concerning to me. Once the oil starts getting low, I get ticks/clicking/weird sounds and questionable...

    Window hatch leaking!

    Howdy, everybody. This is my first post so I hope it'll be as helpful as everything else has been that I've read on this site. I have a '97 5.0 XLT Explorer. I've recently come to find that my rear hatch window is leaking from the top around the rubber seal. Living where I do, rain is a certain...

    Does Jiffy Lube owe me?

    First off I know I probably shouldn't be taking my 2004 Ford Explorer to jiffy lube for a transmission flush. I usually do my own work if it's simple but since these are closed systems I didn't have the equipment to do it. Anyway a couple weeks after I had his done I noticed a bad transmission...

    Quick question about stalling!

    I can do things to make my car stall at demand! For example, if I turn on the engine, switch into gear, and then press on the knob to deactivate AC (with climate control all the way on HOT), the car will stall almost always. I also noticed it stalled a few times pressing on the brakes...
