Not to offend you or anyone else... But do you not know how to read through a post?Sign me up for a copy of the video too! This oughta be good.
If you plan on overfilling your motor past the full level, then prepare to purchase connecting rods and a host of other internals. Ponder this thought during your "cleaning" process. While all this magical internal cleaning is going on, think about the lack of lubrication in all the critical areas; cylinder walls, cam bearings, rod bearings cam ect. ect ect. However this will save time cleaning the parts when you are disassembling the broken motor.
Like mentioned above, if this thing runs good, DO NOT DISTURB THE SLEAPING GIANT! Keep clean oil in it, keep an eye on the plugs ect. It sounds like you have done plenty as it is. PM me and I will send my postal address where to ship the video. Wear goggles and maybe even a face shield! :bsnicker:
If you have then you should understand that:
1. I'm going to pull the plugs. (This means no compression on compression stroke)
2. I'm only going to crank the engine a few times with the starter. (This means the engine will have very minimal load on it. With no compression, it might spin up to 400 RPM)
3. I'm going to leave the oil cap off, remove the PCV Valve, and pull all of the vacuum hoses off the intake. (This will ensure that the crankcase pressure will not rise at all from the cranking of the starter. Not that it should anyways because there will be no volumetric changes in the crankcase from cranking the engine.)
4. This Explorer runs like shi*!!!
(I have checked all the voltages on the sensors and all are in spec. The only code I now have is EGR low flow, and Fuel Rich part throttle. DPFE is in good shape. Fuel pump is new, fuel filter is now new, fuel pressure is 41lbs with KOEO and at 38lbs KOER. Still boggs down past 60% throttle. Feels like pulling a manual choke when you get past 60% throttle.)
So please explain to me how I'm going to need to do a full rebuild on this engine following the procedure described.
