    Strange Oil Gauge Issue

    My oil gauge is going crazy lately when I accelerate and moves a bit at idle. This has happened before because my original oil switch broke. But after replacing it the problem went away. That was a few years ago. This time my oil gauge is going crazy but only when my battery gauge is low...

    Pressure? Temperature? Which one?

    2000 Explorer XLT 2WD 4.0L SOHC JOB1 5-Speed Automatic 5R55E. Can someone confirm the following? Thanks. The EGR system uses a EGR Pressure Sensor... not a EGR Temperature Sensor, right?

    Best way to relieve fuel line pressure?

    I’m going to attempt to change the fuel filter on my 2000 OHV and was wondering how to depressurize the fuel line. I’ve read that unplugging the inertia switch and then cranking the engine until the fuel runs out, is the best way. I’ve also read that removing the fuel pump fuse and then cranking...

    Question about possible fuel pressure issue.

    Hello all! To start out, my 2002 XLT's fuel gauge had not worked for years. And occasionally it would have some trouble starting. It would try to turn over but would not start until after about three tries. But that was rare. So I changed the fuel pump and sending unit. My gas gauge...
