i wish u had posted this a year ago when i needed it. somehow i got it right though. good right up, instead of using the special too though i used one of those oil filter wrenchs to hold the pulley, the kind with the bicyle chain and some channel lock pliers to grab the Nut holding the fan clutch.
and the last screw you show removing was a bitch to remove. for me atleast. BTW this should be Sticky IMO
my 94 xlt for some reason "boils" when i park after i drive it. it boiled most of the coolant out yesterday and the coolant i put in before i drove again boiled out as well/ dad helped me and said its probably my water pump because you cant see the water having a currant when the rad cap is off? idk but the gauge says its fine even tho its literally boiling out of the coolant catch. and my check oil light started staying on but when my dad and i looked at what was going on with the coolant the light came off. weird to me. btw there is no weeping at the water pump on the bottom side but above the pump there is something that has leaked. need help and low on cash
Im in the middle of doing this, yay! Only issue, so far, is that the petcock was gone so i undid the nut and the radiator started to drain. It didnt drain all the way and when i removed the lower radiator hose and the pump itself there was a shower or neon green flowing everywhere lol isnt the petcock supposed to drain the whole system, did i miss a step, or is it normal?
From what I understand, if the timing chain were to go, the valves would not hit the pistons in the 1st gen Explorer.anybody know if the first gen is an interference engine?
