    Camshaft syncroniser to crankshaft (harmonic balancer rotation) Please Help

    Can anyone tell me how many times the camshaft syncroniser rotates for every revolution of crankshaft harmonic balancer? If I'm not mistaken is it 2 times? This would be on a 4.0 V6 OHV (NON-SOHC) I feel stupid. I rebuilt this 97 ranger engine and the timing chain was set at 6 and 12...

    Possible to Supercharge the 3.7L Engine?

    So we all know the 3.7L V6 found in a large number of PIUs is pretty robust, and I've been watching videos where people with 2014-era V6 Mustangs are racing people with the V8 Mustang and performing admirably - the V6 is no slouch and it's lighter than the V8. (They're still losing...but it's...

    2000 Ford Explorer V6 - Looking For Some Transmission Advice

    Hi there, first time poster long time lurker. My Explorer had 120,000 miles on when I bought it, it approaches 180,000 now. That was about fifty thousand miles over the past 3-some years. It has always shifted well while driving, and has always had a loud clunk when I shift into reverse...

    2002 into 2005 transmission swap

    I have a 2005 ford explorer xlt 4.0 v6 4x4 automatic with a 5r55s transmission that is blown. I have found a possible donor, a 2002 ford explorer 4.0 v6 4x4 automatic with a 5r55s transmission as well. I am assuming it can be swapped but I am not 100% sure. I have heard that there is a...

    Any EcoBoost Engineers in here? EcoBoost Intercooler Condensation Solution?

    Just watched a video of some guy complaining about F150's and said he would never buy ford again. The issue seemed simply to resolve, curious what has been tried or if/how the issue has been resolved. The issue was water build up in the intercooler, which meant a quick jab at the throttle would...

    98 Sport Manual Stalls Out on Start

    Hey All, So I've got a 1998 Explorer Sport 5 speed manual 106k miles. It's got an X in the vin so I believe it's the OHV v6. I purchased it at 104k and its ran fine since then. Recently it has started stalling out on start. It'll rev high and then drop to a stall. If I wait a few seconds and...

    2003 Accelerating Issues

    I have a 2003 Explorer XLT V6 4.0L with about 142K on it. Recently picked it up used from an owner. Runs pretty well but I do feel like its not accelerating to its full potential. When I go I can hear it shifting gears from 1st to 2nd fine, but 2nd to 3rd seems to take it a second. If I don't...

    Removing the starter ('08 4.0L)

    Hello all, I've been having trouble removing the starter. I'm able to get two bolts off on the right side of the component itself, but I'm not sure if I'm missing anything else as it's not becoming loose. It's such a pain to even reach it, so I'm kinda lost. Does anybody have any tips? Or maybe...

    4.0L SOHC Resonator Delete

    Hey! I've been wondering if deleting the resonator on the V6 will make a big difference in sound, of course it won't have the big, mean sound of a V8, but I'd like my truck to be a bit louder than it is currently. What all would removing the resonator entail? I'd like to keep everything in front...

    Transmission fluid level on 2003 Explorer?

    Yesterday I put my 2003 V6 Explorer on a lift to check the transmission fluid. I had it warmed up, checked transmission fluid temp on my scanner before removing the small inner plug with a T30 torx. This was the first time I've checked it since we recently bought this vehicle. When the plug...
