    M5OD Clutch Release Bearing Replacement Hint...

    I just learned something about the hydraulic clutch system on my 96 Sport 5 speed manual and thought I would share it with everyone else. I'm sure there are those of you out there that already know this but if you run into the same situation I did this will help. A little over 3 years ago I...

    A4LD/M5OD separator/ spacer plate

    I am collecting parts for my transmission swap, and my question is, what are the thickness differences between the automatic and manual transmission spacer plates on the first generation Explorers? I searched about every way I know how to word it, and can’t find what I’m looking for. Can I...

    M5OD transmission to transfer case adapter leak

    This forum has been responsible for getting my EX to 350,000 in the Rust Belt. I know the 1-uppers out there are dying to chime in but I don't care what part of the world you drive in, getting a truck with this many moving parts and lets face it, a marginal design at best; is no small task...

    About to drop trans

    So after seeing a leaking slave cylinder and having my shifting being rough, I realized my slave cylinder is going out. I'm about to replace the slave this weekend and wanted to stop in and see if you guys have any tips/advice for me. This is the largest repair I will have done so far, but I...

    Extension housing leak

    Can the extension housing on the M5OD be removed with the tranny still in the truck or will it cause issues with the reverse gear components? Mine is leaking very bad and its a pain to add fluid every couple weeks. I don't really want to pull the whole tranny unless I'm doing a clutch and slave...

    Combining 2 '91 xlt manuals

    I've had these two '91's for about a year now. My goal has been to take the best from each and build one reliable fun/work machine. Here's the skinny: - Red one is my daily driver - it's a 91 XLT with m5od and electric 4wd/auto hubs. It has a rust problem (probably driven on the beach...

    [FONT="Georgia"]Hey all, I've been looking for about an hour to diagnose this sound, but without any luck, I've decided to ask you guys. So my problem, I'm having a strange clicking noise from my transmission when letting the clutch out in 1st and second. My truck is a 1988 Explorer Sport 2...

    Going Manual

    Over the last few days the A4LD on my 1992 has not been interested in shifting in the morning. And now, i felt my first slip/bang. The trans was freshened up (seals, etc.) at 104,000 but at 141,500, it looks like it needs work again. Sigh! Thinking over my options and since this is my DD, I...

    Long Block for my 92 XLT

    My X runs fair around town but it does not like long drives down the highway. Good compression but it's using oil like no manana (5 quarts between oil changes, no leaks) and the #5 sparkplug shows oil and it pings. I am trying to nurse the engine through till the end of the year. Anyway, my...
