    2003 Explorer 4.6L oxygen sensor circuit problems

    I recently picked up this 03 Explorer with the 4.6L in it, the odometer says roughly 198k. I bought it pretty cheap so I've been fixing things and sorting out the bugs. Up until now the fixing has all been mechanical, bearing assy's, upper control arms, latches, hinges, etc. Here's the deal...

    Engine Oil Temperature Sensor

    Good Morning, I have 2006 Explorer 4.6 (Limited), it has been in the family since it was brand new and well maintained. It has been driven very easily as only a commuter vehicle and has never had any mechanical issues. Lately though, the Engine Oil Temperature sensor code (P0197) has been...

    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?

    4WD 5R55E Transmission Pan On 2WD 5R55E?

    Does the 4WD 5R55E deep pan bolt on to the 2WD 5R55E? I want to add a transmission fluid temperature sensor the next time I change my fluid. Any issues if I switch over to the deeper pan? I know I’ll have to use a longer filter too. I plan to use a pan with a drain bolt like this: Then...

    Replacing A TPS With Damaged Screws, How To

    A couple of years ago I got the idea of replacing my throttle position sensor since it was the stock part. I gave up after rounding the philips screws. I then tired to use a dremel to cut a slot into the screw heads but that didn’t work out too well. Recently, my absolute throttle position...

    Hub ABS Ring Teeth Greasy

    I recently had my ABS sensor go out on my '98 4WD, front left wheel. No ABS light but it exhibited the typical activation of ABS when slowing down to a stop around 5 MPH. I put a new ABS sensor in and haven't had the ABS activate since, but while doing that I noticed something. Looking down...

    4.0 OHV Absolute Throttle Position

    I’ve read threads on this site about the tps and it seems that 19.6% is the normal position for the TPS at idle. Mine has recently started dropping to 19.2% at times and I’m getting erratic rpms lately, like a 30-50 rpm change every second. The truck runs really smooth and the rpms stay steady...

    Mixed Up Sensors?

    I replaced my coolant sensors almost a year ago and I’m worried I have them backwards. I’m using the dy-1144 sensor to control the gauge on the drivers side one wire connector, and the SW5174 fan switch for the computer sensor on the passenger side two wire connector. Any experts here that can...

    O2 Sensor Voltages

    Anyone here familiar with “normal” voltages for O2 sensors? Two of my sensors appear to be functioning correctly and are on opposite voltages. I’ve read before that it should be that way. However, the third sensor on bank 2/3 stays steady around .790 volts. Any idea if that’s bad? I appreciate...

    TPMS Fault - Very Low Pressure

    When I first got my used '05 Explorer this weekend, there was a message that said "Check tire pressure" or something like that. I stopped at the gas station on my way home and pumped up all of the tires to 36PSI. Instantly after doing this, the message changed to "Tire Pressure Sensor Fault"...

    Back up sensor bumper?

    I didn't even know the second gens had this option. I'm guessing it isn't just plug and play. Has anyone swapped one of these into their X? I personally wouldn't pay this much for a used bumper. But my local junkyard usually has 10-15 explorers, so I'm sure I'll find one of these eventually. I'm...
