Hi Duane, Was wondering if you have a quick fix for power antenna that needs help to go down, or the check engine light comes on, but vehicle runs fine. Also does your explorer seem to ride a little rough. thanks, Steve

Here's some information I received from someone regarding the check engine light: I did have a Check Engine Light that kept coming back after being 'reset'. Turned out to be an EGR problem that was throwing an "insufficient flow, EGR" code. In any case, after 3 visits to non-Ford 'tune-up' shops who went after the EGR valve, I read up on the Serious Explorer message board and determined that it was the EGR differential sensor ( something like that). Apparently, a very common failure with many Fords (the small-town dealer had 36 in stock.....that says something). I don't believe that there's a 'fix' that could remedy the problem as opposed to purchasing the new $65 sensor/valve. **************** Let me know if this helps. Regards, Duane Harrison

Learned about your site from the Explorer group at Yahoo. Pictures are clear and sharp. I have yet to have any of the problems you describe (96EB) What maintainance do you do? Some people (DrBob on his site) recomend very extensive work - pulling prop shaft, lubing splines, dismantling 4wd hubs, cleaning, lubing, etc. I have yet to do any of that, just normal oil changes, coolant flush, filters, etc. - 60k miles..

Reply from D Harrison:
I do the minimum maintenance necessary...I do try to change the oil every 3000 miles.  I should probably be a little more aggressive on my maintenance such as coolant flushes.  I need to be better about rotating my tires...I always end up with "cupping" on the tires due to lack of rotations (Ford's are notorious for that, I'm told).  I've been advised that I should rotate the tires every other oil change (however, we put 3000 on the car pretty fast...it gets to be too much to rotate the tires when I'm doing these oil changes myself...and still have some quality time with the kids).

Steve - On Grand Marquis with power ant, I fully extended it, cleaned it thoroughly, and sprayed sections with silicone lube. Ran it up and down a few times, now fine. I put a little silicone lube on both that one and my Explorer ant. at every wash now. Motor oil would lube better, but attract too much dirt. George

Akin to the door ajar sensor problem, my door open chimes ring all the time the door is open keys-in ignition or key-out of ignition. They used to be quite when the door was open but keys were not in the ignition. I pulled the fuse but this kills the interior lights also!!! Holding a generous donation awaiting a comment.

Reply from D Harrison:
I don't have the answer for you at this time...it seems like it would take a close look at the schematics of the circuitry controlling the chimes to fix it.  If I come across something I'll let you know....or if someone reading this has the solution, please post or email Steven above.

Here is the problem. When I have either the a/c or vent on and I apply the throttle, the air shifts to the defrost vents. This happens when the thermostat is on cold or hot. Someone suggested it might be a vacuum hose, but which one and how do you get to it? Let me know if your familiar with this problem and know of a fix.

IT CURRENTLY HAS 34,500 MILES ON IT,AND THE REAR END IS WHINING AGAIN. MY LOCAL FORD DEALER TELLS ME THAT FORD KNOWS THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THESE VEHICLES AND THAT THEY HAVE AN (OASIS) OUT ON THE PROBLEM. THE (OASIS) HAS BEEN OUT FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW.

I Have a problem with my heater/ac control that I have not been able to fix. All I get is hot air, even with the Temp controler all the way in the blue, no matter what vent position I have it in. The only time that I can get somewhat cool air is if it is in Max A/C and even than it's not that cold. I've tried replacing the temp control potentiometer switch on the instrument panel, but that didn't work. I have traced back and it appears that all my vaccum lines are working to allow the individual vents to open and close, however I did notice that there is also a vaccum accuated, I will assume a ball valve that is tied into the heater supply line prior to going into the fire wall to the heatre box. It appears that this valve stays fully open unlees in the Maz A/C mode, not sure if this is part of the problem. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions as to what might be cauing this problem? Thank You, G.L. Vassallo

I have a 2000 Explorer XLS that has been trouble free up to this point. This morning I had a hard time starting it up. After it started it sounded like it was gasping for air along with rough idling. Once I put it in gear it shut off. I tried this several times and each time it did the same thing. When it finally kicked over it idled very rough. After about a min or so the rough idling ceased and all was fine. I'm thinking EGR valve. Has any one encountered this type of problem? Sincerely, Pep

The part has two hoses on each end... that part has a vacumm hose plugged in on top. Is the seal replacable or just replace the whole part?

1999 Explorer XLT 4X4 Air Bag dash light flashes many times and then stays on. This indicates that air bags are not working. Read on internet that sensor under the front seats may be casusing this problem. Some owners have Ford repair this problem (at great expense) and later problem returns again. If ford hooks computer up it says the code for front seats sensor (resistance) is not correct. I tried reseating the sensor wire under the drivers seat but nothing. On a Ford recall for two other fixes (not related to this) after they pluged the car into their computer it reset something and the air bag sensor worked correctly for about a week, but then the problem returned again. Ford charges a lot of money to plug their computer into the car; and I don't trust Ford dealers anyway. Looking for trustworthy shade tree person, but need to know before hand how to fix it.. Thank you. Ed Norment

I was recently given a 1993 Explorer. The front break pads were metal to metal after 500 miles. I went to change out the pads, and broke 2 c-clamps, trying to push the piston down. Does this model require a special tool, or is the piston just locked out?

Hope you can help, I have a '96 exlporer that makes a very high pitched whine when idling hot, it usually goes away when you accelerate. No kind of check engine light, it varies from barely noticeable to very loud, same basic pitch, though. problem with diagnosing this is that it doesn't make the noise all the time which makes it hard to pinpoint. Seems like you can hear it through the air intake at the front of the engine.

Just bought a 2001 Explorer Sport (4.0 SOHC) with factory remote and keypad. I'm sure you know where this is going. The 2001 is the first year of the new body style, although I can say it has not changed much on the inside (I owned a 2000 brand new). Here's the question: I need to know where I can find the factory 5 digit keypad code for the driver's door. It is NOT in the following places: glove box, door/liftgate jambs, jack storage. I'd rather not spoon out any money to a dealership, but if I must... I hope someone can give me a sign.

I have a 1997 ford explorer limited awd, the alarm or security system on my vehicle as well as the open and close doors with the transmitter has failed or that is to say, is not working. It did initially. I have only one key. I purhased the vehicle used. The owner said, that he lost the other key and the two transmitter that came with the car. he gave me one transmitter and one key for the vehicle. the the keyless entry pad works fine. the driver's side door will not allow unlocking with the key. the passager door and the hatch back will open with the key. do I need to get another key from the ford company and is there a chip in the key. do I have to buy a new transmitter and have the ford dealership program the transmitter to open and lock the doors and set the security system. thank you Eric

For the question about knowing the number of the keypad. I had same problem just got my 2000 last week. You go in the back of the vehicle. Open drivers side compartment. In there you will find a box. This is for your remote locks. If you look in there at an angle you will see a white label on there. There will be a 5 digit number all by itself. It's a lot bigger then the rest of them. this is the original keypad number even if someone has another number personalized, original number will work. you can also program your own number to work. But first you will have to reset keypad. I don't have my book here. so email me if you have a question.

oops i guess I should have looked at all the posts first. anyways, about the blank radio screen. I fixed today. Just go to walmart, and buy ford radio pullers. right by the stereo section. Just put in the four holes. and pull towards you. you might have to pull levers opposite of one another to get clips to close enough to get radio out. Next slide out and disconnect harnesses and radio antenna. all harnesses different so can't plug back in wrong. after radio is out. Just take off the black 2 screws holding the front display on. carefully take and pry the four tabs holding display in. once loose, disconnect wire harness from display to main radio assembly. If you look closesly at pins opposite of display you will see two on one side that look a lot darker. Mine had no solder on those two points. if you get a magnifying glass will help to solder back. when you solder back do'nt worry about getting it on both pins. I was afraid at first but looked at actual board and saw they form together in a T. just did that and mine's back on track. I read in a different web site about this and the guy said it worked for a year, so hopefullly mine will last longer. but no biggie easy job if you know how to solder. remember this is for a 2000 explorer mine doesn't have anti theft. Don't know if some do.

1991 Ford f 150 The fuel pump for each tank continues to pump with the engine off. I have to disconnect the Battery cable to shut down the pumps. I assume it is the Fuel pressure valve that is falty. Do you know where it is located? Is this part readily available from an Auto Parts store? Thanks for any help or advie given.

I have a 1999 Explorer with the OHV engine. The check engine light is on and the local garage diagnosed it as a speed sensor in the auto trans. The transmission shop checked and said that the sensor seemed to check out OK. He said he could rebuild the trans. for $1400 with a new sensor, but I am not positive that this will solve the problem. Any ideas?

I have a 1995 Ford Explorer XLT. My car won't start at all. It won't even turn over. It won't make a "clicking" sounds when I turn the key in the ignition. Basically, it won't make a sound at all. Could it be the fuel pump, fuel filter or the altenator, or the starter? The battery still works, the radio and lights work. Please help me in the right direction so that I won't spend unneccessary money to a dealership for a problem I don't have.

I have a 96 Ford Explorer 2WD 4.0L manual transmission. My problem is the oil pressure guage drops to nothing. I thought it was the sending unit...changed that and still no pressure. Obviously it is either the oil pump or the pump filter. My question...is there anyway to change the pump without having to remove the engine and if so, how do I do it, is there a diagram that shows how to do it?

I have a 1997 Explorer w/129,000 miles. After getting new tires I started to notice a rythamic vibration at city speeds. Lately the vibration has become noticeable at highway speeds. The tire shop says the tires are ok but the rear end is going. Is this plausable or should I get a second opinion? If it is the rear end is it worth getting fixed (the car has been very reliable and is otherwise in excellent shape)?

I am a girl and I need your help. I have a used 1996 Ford Explorer XLT 2 wheeled drive, and have major problems but little money to spare. My check engine light has been on for 2 years now and I cant get it to turn off. I have ran tests; they say it is the egr valve.... fixed it and things where good for a short while... then it came back on. My car also idles rough and my dome lights at one point would not turn off for 2 days so i had to take out the bulbs becuase they started melting the metal. Is this all interconnected? If not just tell me what the deal is with my check engine light. I hate my car I wish someone would have told me Explorer stood for Ford Explode before I bought the damn car. And also before I take up your entire web page my ABS light sometimes comes on and stays on for 2 days at a time then turns off by itself.

I have a 1998 ford explorer 2dr sport 4X4. The driver side door lock has started acting up by not unlocking either with the keyless entry, touch pad, or using the key. In addition, the inside unlock button will not unlock it and pulling of the handle will not unlock or open it. My wife drives it and she is virtually locked in once the automatic door lock engages when she puts it in drive. Is there a quick fix without going to the dealer, or is there a way to turn off the automatic locking feature so we can just leave it unlocked? I removed the door panel and have looked at everything, but I cannot find a problem.

I was wondering if you ever ran across this problem. My 93 explorer 4x4 doesn't shift into reverse when I select it. It just revs as if it's in neutral, I played around with the selector trying to find a gray area but no luck. Also at the same time the "reverse" went out, the car won't kick into overdrive. It just acts as if it was in regular "d" mode. Do you think it could be a stuck check ball or something? Maybe a servo? Please help!

While driving @ steady 60 mph, the engine suddenly lost power. no ck engine light.Pulled to shoulder and found that the engine would idle normally but when throttle was opened engine would not rev but stumble. When throttle was released rpms returned to normal idle. With the maf disconnected the engine performs normally although there seems to be a drop in mpg. I installed a new maf but it wouldn't even idle. However this may have been due to my neglecting to clear old maf readings from the cmu. Do these symptoms suggest that the maf is bad, and should the cmu be cleared before replacing with new maf.1994 Ford explorer 6 cyl 5speed 4x4 Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

HI I am having the same problem with my 92 explorer it was running rough so i took a look an found the back bottom vacuum valve missing too. But according to the manual it is suppose to go to the 1/4 inch port for vacuum reservoir/EGR. Now, If any of you know what that is please let me know, because like you I have looked for a hanging hose someplace and haven't found onw. I did plug mine up too, but, it still runs bad. Not as rough as before but it seems to be missing something.

I have a problem with the heater/ac control on my 1998 Ford Explorer that I have not been able to figure out. The only time I can get somewhat cool air is if it is in Max A/C and even then, it's not that cold. When the Automatic button is pushed, it blows heat instead of air, no matter what temperature is selected. I can cool with Max, but must continually turn it off and on

Hi all, I just bought a 2001 Explorer Sportrac last week. I have driven a Chevy S-10 ZR2 Widetrac for 5 years, brand new and the Sportrac is riding very different. I noticed that there is a vibration when driving between 20-40 mph. This vibration also occurs when I am at a stop and putting it in reverse or forward as I try to park the vehicle. Any ideas? I am going to be bringing it back to the dealer but just thought someone might have a thought as to what it might be. Thanks, Karen

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sportrac. The check engine light is on and will not go off. Also, little by little the blinkers, and brake lights are going, depending on the tilt of the steering wheel. Now when I put on my blinker, it blinks rapidly and is making a whirring sound. The bed makes a constant squeak, and there is a continuous whinning sound as I'm driving along. The last and final malfunction is that all the CD's now in the player refuse to eject or play. Is this common in Sportrac's?

My 99 Explorer Ltd has the airbag light illiminated on the dash (off & on). According to the dealership, I need to have and AirBag Overlay Harness and the shorted wires replaced. The current configuration is that the wires run underneath the carpet , but now they will replace the above and run the wires under the console. Is this not considered a manufacturer Defect, otherwise, why would they be relocating the wires at a cost of $447? They say the wires are melted.. And they say my vehicle will NOT pass MA inspection.

Great Website, I have a '91 Explorer with a fuel leak. It only leaks sometimes and only on cold starts. The leak occurs where the fuel line meets the engine on the front-top and the fuel collects on top of the engine. I would say its a bad fuel line, but it doesn't leak all the time, only occassionally (on cold starting). Do you have any ideas? Thanks

While driving home on Friday, I suddenly smelled something like hot antifreeze or burning oil. I thought it was one of the cars next to me and the fumes were drifting into my vehicle. As it turns out, the smell was most likely some kind of electrical burning as I discovered my driver side window suddenly stopped working. At first, the window went down when I was trying to get the smell out of my truck, and the window went right back up no problem. Now, it won't go down at all. Other window and all other electrical systems are working normally. I'm assuming it's the window motor. How complicated is it to buy a new window motor myself and install it?

Rear window wiper problems. I've read a previous posting that told me all one has to do is jiggle the rear wiper to reset the switch and it will start working. I've done that in the past, but it keeps dying on me, and the jiggling doesn't always work. Sometimes it will start working if I open and shut the liftgate or rear window. I'm starting to wonder if there is a short in the wiring? Any suggestions? What sort of damage can I look forward to if I take it to a repair shop?

It only happens on hot summer days and not during cooler days. I up-graded the Tansmission cooler, but I have not had time to test it going over a mountain pass. The other potential problem might be the front seal, that only leaks when there is a load on the tourque converter. Any suggestions?

I have 3 questions to ask anyone that might like to help me. 1) When I purchased this car last year (used), the seller didn't have the combo for the keyless entry pad, does anyone know where I might be able to find that ? 2) If I replace the door I know I will have to pop out the door key lock assembly and put my old one into my new door so I can use the same key, but will I have to also remove the keypad from my old door and install that in my new door ? 3) is there any special tricks I should know about installing this new door. Like do I have to remove the fender to get to one of the bolds on the hinges ? I appreciate any help.. thanking you all in advance ...

After driving home she said it drove as if the emergency brake was on and check to make sure the emergency brake was off as she was driving home. Any ideas what may cause the vehicle to shut down while highway driving? The explorer only has 40,000 miles on it.

I (like many does not have money growing on trees in the back yard) I just want to know if there is a way to fine out what could be worng. I know it still may need to go in to be worked on, if there is any thing any one tell me, it would be great.

My wife's 2001 Explorer is making a poping in the front end drivers side I think it is the cvc joint on the 4x4 it has a shimmy and gets worse the faster you travel. It makes the pop sound going forward or back wards with the wheel turned to the left sharply. Wheel must make a complet rotation before pop happens again..Any one know if I am right or what it might otherwise be. What about the repairs,week end work or the repair shop? Thanks....

Also this is a problem that is just irritating me to no end what is the problem with the radios all my light have gone out and the dealer wants $600 to fix it. My friends tell me to just go out and buy another one but this was the $1000 Bose up grade system. Does anyone know of a recall or some way to get them to fix it?

Hi, I have a 97 Ford Exploder, V-6, auto trans, 4 wd drv. It has an intermittened with starting. The starter works fine as the engine is sounding like it is trying to start but it won't. It sounds like it is an ignition problem. Sometimes it will start fine then other times it requires 10 minutes or more of attempts. It has stranded me on a few occations. The guy from the auto club conducted an diagnostics on it and it comes up at times as the security alarm. This is a factory installed security alarm that will put an inhibitor in the ignition system if the truck isn't started within a certian time after you use the electronic key to open the door. Yes, if you use the manual key to open the door, the horn/alarm will sound if you attempt to start the truck. Oddly enough when the truck is drug to the dealer everythig is fine and they can't find the problem. Does anybody knows how to disable this security system so the truck will start? The real reason why I want to know is I will sell the hunk of crap as soon as it will consistantly start. I vow never, ever to buy another ford again reguardless of how good a deal it seems. This is the second and last! I really miss my Chevy Blazer and Camaro.

Am I getting taken to the cleaners? 1996 Ford Explorer Sport. Mechanic's comments from CA Smog test. "Checked system for codes, had code P0420 for Catalyst efficiency and PO401 for EGR system flow at idle, found cracked vacuum line, repaired line and vehicle started running rough ("rough ha!..like doesn't run at all"..). Did intrussive test on converter, converter is working properly. Checked EGR Solenoid, has constant power and ground causing vacuum to flow through to EGR. Checked 02 sensors, working properly and no glitches. EGR passages are partially restricted." Mechanic indicates I need to purchase a new computer and clean EGR passages. If that doesn't work, I'll have to replace catalytic converter. Estimated cost (including labor) Computer $365; EGR Carb Cleaner $6; EGR Valve $90; R/R ECM $72 (add'l $500 if Catalytic Converter required). After they "fixed" the cracked vacuum line, car will not run. (I politely asked them to break it again since my car was running fine before, but I guess then I don't get to pass the smog test.) I found: If you unplug the vacuum line with EGR plugged in, car runs. If you unplug EGR with vacuum plugged in, car runs. Went to Auto Zone Auto Supply Store and borrowed their OBDII thing-a-ma-diggey and plugged into computer under steering shaft(only had to leave my driver's license to use the machine...cheap solution). Code reads P1409 with EGR unplugged which makes sense. HOWEVER, if I plug the EGR and vacuum thing back in, the machine says PASS, no codes returned. However, car won't run if the "fixed" vacuum line is plugged in. Does it sound like I need a new computer like they indicated? Also have the issue with A/C only working on Max, but I take it that isn't a computer problem. Oh, car is NOT running hot, but when it is 95+ degrees out, I get this low groaning kinda like a bus when I LET OFF the brake. Sound continues for a few minutes while driving. Sound tends to stop if I have heat or a/c blower on. What a mess! The GREAT thing about your site is...I'm not alone in these weird problems! Any help would be appreciated. Already paid $150 for one diagnostic (which resulted in a vacuum line repair which made my car not run). Hate to pay another $150 for a second opinion and haven't even started to fix the problem! Is a computer or EGR hard to replace? Actual parts just run $130 and $41. Smog test results only failed on NO(PPM) test. Max at 15 mph 494, ave 82, ME 833; at 25 mph Max 747, ave 74, ME 873. HC (PPM) and CO% well within passing range). I picked up some of that "Guaranted to Pass Emission Test Formula" stuff today and put it in with a full tank of gas, but don't think it will help too much until the EGR/vacuum problem is fixed. Otherwise, I'm doing great...how about you guys! A "striving hard to be mechanical" Anonymous single (you guessed it)female

NOSPAM Hi There! I am having a few problems with lights on my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT. The headlights stopped working, however the parking lights work and the high beams only work if I pull them toward me but they won't stay on if I release the handle. THe bulbs are fine. The second thing is a few months ago the third brake light at the top started flickering and stays on even when the truck is off. Now the other two brake lights just stopped working. Their bulbs are also fine.....Any suggestions on what is causing this and how it can be fixed? Thanks for your help Joey

My daughter and I were involved in a front end collision in my 2002 Ford Explorer. Despite over $6600 in damage to my front end, neither the driver nor the passenger side airbag deployed. The EMS driver and the wrecker both said given the extensive damage to the front end of my vehicle the air bags should have deployed. My daughter and I both suffered significant injuries. I do not know how fast I was going upon impact. I was traveling 60 mph before slamming on my brakes when a car pulled out in front of us. The dealership that did the repairs on my vehicle could offer no explaination for the air bags failing. My question is, when should the air bags deploy and is my car safe to drive given I could not get an explaination as to why the air bags failed in the first place. I was told they were fine but how do I know for sure?

My oil pressure seems too be running too low, it fluctuates usually running in a lower pressure than normally the car would run .The car has always run fine except for some tappet noise.When I first bought the car the pressure would run with in the "normal" on the letter A or L on the gauge.Now the car runs on the N of the gauge. The gauge will also read between the letters R and L on the "normal" guage. These things all seem to happen at random times.

Hi Duane, I have a bad exhaust valve to my 1992 Explorer's 5th cylinder--because of this I am unable to register my SUV in Missouri. The car, if in good condition, is worth $2800 and a rebuilt engine is about $2400 installed. Have any recommendations? Most places seem against the idea of installing a new head (would I be able to do this myself with a manual?), but the car runs and I would hate to junk it... Thanks, Jess

Ford dealer want $400 just to "open the pan" and check it. I have a local transmission guy who has to order a special adaptor from California just to get it open--however he says that '02 and up are experiencing "cylinder pack" problems??

I was checking the wires for any short and now it doesn't start at all. It doesn't seem to be getting any fuel. The pump makes no noise when ign. is on. Could I have shorted something out when I was checking the other problem? Hopefully it is not the pump. what can I check to see what is wrong? Don Morris

Hi, I just bought my second Explorer and got a heck of a deal. It's a real fixer-upper though. One of the problems is one I've never personally seen. When the brakes are applied, there's a hissing or blowing noise coming from the brake pedal area. By researching and asking of people in the field, I've narrowed it down to the vacuum hose of the power brake unit. I've been told that there's a check valve that often goes bad. Has anyone replaced this? I welcome any and all tips and/or advice. Thanks a bunch, Clyde Beck, Texas

I ran out of gas in my 2000 Ford Explorer. Shortly there after, I noticed that the engine was revving higher and the shifting between gears seems labored. Could it be related to a confused fuel sending unit? The truck has 67,000 miles. It also overheared a bit, but came down to 80%. I'm not hearing any odd noices, so I'm guessing that is a bad thermostat. Any thoughts you may offer would be appreciated.

My 1997 intermittently won't start. It will run fine for a day or so, and then, maybe half-way through the day, it won't start. If I wait a while (like a couple of hours), it will start again. I have had two repair shops look at it and run diagnostics, and they have not been able to get the problem to re-occur. The last time it happened (last week), I got the car back on Thursday, and it wouldn't start on Friday. Any suggestions?

Now that it's nearing 100,000 miles, 2nd gear seems to be having trouble also. I've heard that there is some expensive synchro problem with these transmissions that requires complete overhaul. Any ideas? Thanks.

My '94 Ford Explorer has a hard time going into gear. When you first put it into gear it just stays in neutral, But when I slam on the gas it will finally go into gear. Do I have to get a new transmission?

My 92 ford explorer dies when drive it down the road. we have changed the fuel pump and relay switch. What else do you think it could be? Fuel filter? what? The electronic parts stay on but the engine just dies and you have to restart it several times before it finally fires.

I have a very bad problem about my explorer last time I went to the shop, because of miss firing of some cyclinder and they the change the two spark plug coil and spark plug wire. Two months later back to the shop same problem, they check the coil and the spark plug and its okay,but they need to change a sensor and few days later they need to do the timing... and they say I might have a problem with the module... wish not... so far the ford explorer is a good vehicle... if you knew about the problem of miss firing it should be okay...

I think I have a thermostat or water pump problem. I get a block down the road and the temp shoots up fast and I had to turn around before it blows. The top hose is hard but the bottom is not. The radiator itself after I turn the vehicle off, vibrates and knocks as it is cooling. I think it is because of the pressure but any help would be great. Also I know where the water pump is on my vehicle but could you help on the location of the thermostat.

My airbag light keeps coming on in my 99 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer but sometimes it does not. The dealership said I needed a new airbag hammock(?) but when I took it to my own mechanic, he reset the system to see if it would reset or come back on immediately and it did not come back on for about two months. Since it is random at times, I am wondering if there is a problem with the wiring. I have had other "poltergeist" problems that no one can figure out, including the dealership. This includes my head lights coming on/off randomly. I'd really apprciate any suggestions before I put $300 into a new airbag "hammock" as I am not mechanically or electrically inclined, to say the least. Thanks!

This hum isn't consistent and it seems to be when it's hot out. I don't even have to be running my fan or AC and it still does it mostly at an idle. What is wrong with this car?

1998 Explorer, 4.0 SOHC, 101K miles. Dealership wants to REPLACE the engine because the crank pulley worked loose and destroyed its keyway, effectively welding itself in there... The pulley does wobble; I saw it. However, different dealer replaced the harmonic balancer at 90K miles...Don't the two (harmonic balancer and the crank pulley) go together? Is the second dealer negligent for not properly re-installing the crank pulley?? Not torquing it properly??? Something?? They had the engine completely torn apart for the timing chain replacement also...Help!

Hi. I have a 1994 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer with almost 300,000 miles. Today, my car started overheating. I pulled over and found the valve used to distribute air was not attached. Actually, the previous owner used PVC pipe to connect the hoses. I purchased the $7.00 replacement part and installed it. Now I'm having problems with it starting. Could it be the alternator has gone bad? It also still overheats. Could I have a shot thermostat now? The other thing that occurred this weekend was my battery is discharging. Even letting the car idle to try and charge the battery isn't working. The battery idiot light is also staying on. Thanks for your help.

I checked the fuses, and none are blown, I also took the panel cover off, and I noticed that there is some type of motor located inside the panel where the noise is coming from.. my questions is what is that motor and it's function, could this be the source of my problem?

I am having problems with my Check engine light for my 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I went to Auto zone and they did the free OBDII diagnostic and I came up with "low EGR air flow" or something of that nature. I spent around 65 dollars for new EGR valve, gasket etc. and about 20 minutes (taking my time) to change it out. Had fault code reset and 4 days later light came back on. Did diagnostics again, same code. Now I'm thinking DPFE, but was told to clean out the tubes leading to EGR valve. I did that, and now vehicle runs worse. It is still driveable, but idles rough. After looking on internet, read about EVR (voltage regulator?) which tubes from EGR connect to. Surely this isn't the same thing as a DPFE. If not, where is the DPFE located? Readings on the net are somewhat vague. any help would be appreciated.

I have a problem and was wondering if anyone has any idea on what is wrong with my 98 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. Well for a few weeks now when I start it up it will start but it seems to take a little longer than usual to actually turn over, not too long but you really have to use some force on the key. But the real problem I'm having is that once I turn the car off it won't restart right away which is really annoying especially when you just need to fill it up with gas and have to sit at the pump for 10 minutes until it will finally restart. Sometimes it has to sit for atleast a half an hour but even then it doesn't want to start. I can't really go anywhere except to work and back because it won't restart until after a while. Does it sound like the starter or battery. I know very little about what could be causing it to only start after sitting for a while. Any help would be much appreciated... Thanks in advance

I have been told that the head gasket is leaking oil on my 1999 explorer eddie bauer, the leak is not that bad, I keep checking the oil level and it shows very little if any at all oil usage, in other word the oil level stays high. Should I worry about the leak now, since the ford company said they would have to drop the engine to repair it and that would cost me big bucks. Any suggestions on what I should do???

I have a 1996 Explorer 4.0 Eddie Bauer. 225,000 miles, mostly highway. Changed oil religeously. It has rough idle only after car has been driven 10-15 minutes, not rought idle when first starting up. Ford dealer says it is something in cylinder #6, possibly a valve. If so, why does it run smooth, normal upon start up? I changed Idle air control, plug wires, spark plugs, fuel filter, fuel pump, and air filter, but the rough idle when warm still occurs. Jeff L in Milwaukee.

I got this site from Yahoo. Anyway, I have a 93ford explorer. I have a situation. My check engine light came on and the diagnostic said 02 sensor. I had that replaced and the next day I noticed white/gray smoke coming from tailpipe. It only happens in the morning for a few minutes when I start my car before work. Plus while starting, I hear a "passing gas" noise around the exhaust or cat at startup only. During the day, there is no smoke present. Any suggestions? At first I was thinking my fuel injection needs to be clean. Thanks

HELP..!!!! I have a 96 explorer that recently began to idle rough and wants to die sometimes. I was going down the road at about 45mph and the rpms began to go down and then the engine died. No matter how much gas you pump into it, it justs continued to go down in RPM and then die. I waited about 5 minutes and then the engine fired up with no problem. I drove it home and it appeared to have all its oats back now. I get the rough idle quite often and the wanting to die symptom rarely. I Need Help please. What could it be...?

Hi! My 1994 Ford Explorer makes a funny ticking noise from the front end ( I believe) I just had the brakes all redone and tires rotated, as well as new manual hubs put on. Could any of these things be the ticking noise? I know it's not a motor noise. I can only hear it when I'm around cement or buildings, where it echoes, and I'm going about 40km per hour.

The problem: The car does not start because when I insert the key, the theft light comes on. keys have been flashed and the reader in the steering column has been changed. The car starts when the theft light goes out but that is only after the car has cooled down and I do not drive it for a while. I am thinking it is the power steering fluid needs to be changed. How do I do this because I have spent a fortune at the dealer already and it is still not fixed. I just paid close to 300.00 dollars to get the key reader changed in my 98 Ford explorer sport. The keys were flashed for 150.00 and did not stop the theft light from flashing which caused the car not to start (engine kill- factory autoguard). After they told me it was probably the transponder reader in the steering column, I was desperate and said O.K. It still does not work. Help!!!!

I filled 2003 sport trac with gas. When I went to start it, it stalled. Started it again and it ran ruff and tach was fluctuating up and down. Drove three miles to work and it lost almost all power going up a gentle incline. eased up on gas and it ran a little better. My A.C. was on but no cold air was coming out. There was also a sulfer smell from the exhaust. I parked at work and turned engine off, after a minute I started it again and now running great and A.C. is working again. This was scarey and do you have any idea what could have caused this. Thanks, Steve D.

I have a 2002 4X4 Ford Explorer XLT that has started making a terrible popping sound when turning the wheel (usually fairly sharply) right or left. It doesn't make the sound when going straight either forward or backwards but will make the clunking sound when turning either going forward or backwards. Today when backing up out of a parking space it didn't want to go and acted like it was going to "lock up" while popping hard. I am also noticing another smaller sound like plastic breaking coming from underneath. The front left wheel bearing was just recently changed but that has been checked to make sure everything was done correctly. What's kinda strange is this popping sound started after changing the wheel bearing. Any ideas? Thanks so much. Angie

I Have a 91 explorer. i think my fuel pump is out, but before replacing it, i want to get some advice on what else the problem could be. When i went to start it, it started, but barley ran. could not accelerate engine. now it won't start at all. turns over fine, and i am getting fire. i do not hear the fuel pump come on. just before this, after it was parked for about 30 mins or so, when i went out to it, i heard a humming sound. i beleive it was the fuel pump still running. could it have burned out or burned up another part. Thank you for the help.

My husband has a 1997 Ford Explorer. We bought it not to long ago. We wondered why we got such a fantastic deal, because it looks nice and runs fine. The catch.... The transmission fluid is mixing into the motor oil. You can change both, put fresh in, drive it and it does it again. Any idea's what he problem is? We've changed radiators, and put complete new lines on it. No one around her knows what the problem is.HELP!

I have a 2002 4X4 Ford Explorer XLT. I just asked a question a few days ago about the popping sound when turning the steering wheel and you thought it was a cv joint. Got another question for you. We checked the cv joints and don't think they are bad. The Explorer acts like it's in low lock all the time. Still makes the clunking sound when turning sharply either direction. Is there a selenoid or switch that makes the transfer case not disengage? Is there a way to check to see if the transfer case is going bad? (It only has 47,000 miles on it.) Thanks again.

We checked the cv joints and don't think they are bad. The Explorer acts like it's in low lock all the time. The wheels keep "dragging" while turning sharply. Seems like one wheel in front and the opposite wheel in the back. If the wheel's turned the other direction the same thing happens but it's the other 2 wheels that try to drag. Still makes the clunking sound when turning sharply either direction. Is there a selenoid or switch that makes the transfer case not disengage?

I just purchased a 2001 explorer and now no heat comes out of the heater, hose to core is hot, return is cold. I took it to the dealer and he said it was broken heater core. Car has 42000 miles. I see there is a service bulletin on heater cores. Dealer says it would cost $900.00 to fix. They also said dash needs to be removed? I can see the back of core thru glove box and also see an electrical connection. Do you think this is an electrical problem causing the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Victor

We have a 1994 Ford Explorer Eddie Baurer model. We are experiencing random engine start failure, we beleieve, due to faulty Anti-theft" electronics. What happens in, intermittantly, the explorer will not start. It cranks fine. We have approximately 116,000 miles on the Explorer. WE engage the "Dead-man" switch and wait a while, sometimes up to an hour, and the explorer will start. Off and on for the past year the frequency of this problem has been growing. Now it is real bother. We believe its a simple fix. But Ford repair shops pretend to dumb about the problem. You know the drill. leave it here we'll get back to you with the corrective action.

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer, when I start the vehicle the 2 lights signifing 4 Dr. High and 4 Dr. Low flash 6 times. After I'm driving a while they begin flashing again intermittantly, until I turn off the engine. Upon reading the owner manul, it says to have the 4 wheel drive checked. What could the problem be, Is the 6 flashes a code, or does the unit need to be diagnosed ? Is there any "Preventive Maintance" I can perform, to prevent this from happening again ?

Help. I have a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport 4.0SOHC, I had the radiator fluid changed and flushed 2-3 mths, then about 2 wks ago my temp was going up so I had the termostat changed, now today I left my house this morning and my heater is blowing cold air. I called the garage and was told that there could be an air pocket in the line. How do I fix this? I can not afford to go back to the garage. Also over the summer I had the AC charged twice and it would not hold a charge and the garage said there were no leaks, it would work for about a week and then blow hot air. Thank-You Tammy

i have a '92 ford exployer 4.0 liter V-6. several months ago problem started.very rough idle when started after motor had cooled. idle so rough that car would die when put in gear. runs ok after it warms up. check engine light would come on and off when problem first started but now it has not came on for a few weeks. have replaced mass air flow sensor, oxygen sensor, idle control sensor, throttle control module, pcv valve, plugs, plug wires, intake fuel rail gaskets, air transfer tube between mass air flow sensor and intake, injectors cleaned and an o-ring on one replaced. car still idles very rough and dies when put in gear.diagnostic code shows 157 and 158, which is mass air flow reading too rich and too lean. this makes sense with the way that it idles, but why does it idel so rough? please tell me what could be wrong.

Hello there: I have a 2002 Ford Explorer that will not shift into gear. I tried the suggestions on page 188 of the owners manual regarding the interlock without success. It also stated that the fuse may be blown. When I stepped on the brakes, no brake lights. Which fuse do I replace? I have checked a couple of he obvious ones under the dash and they appeared to be fine. Now what..... Help......Gotta get the car out of the garage so I can go to work. Any help much apreciated.

However I was just told that their is a button or a kill switch that cuts the pump off so it doesn't ruin it. Is this true and where would I locate it? Thanks!!

My 2000 Astro van's throttle appears to stick while driving. Yesterday I was driving down the road going 53 miles an hour without my foot on the gas and no the cruise control was not on. It will slow down but not at a rate that it should. Sometimes it won't slow down all, and sometimes it will slow to what sounds like normal RPM's. I don't know if it is associated with this problem or not but I believe about the same time that I started having the throttle problem I also noticed that the van was hard to start, like the battery was very weak. Can you tell me what things would cause this problem?

I have a '95 Explorer with the premium sound system. I am switching out the Radio/Cassette player and putting in a new CD player (not a factory CD play). I bought the adapter harness and have hooked up the new player. However, I get no sound. The Explorer has two connector assemblies, but unfortunately only one of the connectors still have the factory pinout label on them. The speaker connector harness has no labeling and I am wondering if perhaps the wiring is different than what the adapter harness says. Does anyone know where I might be able to find the connector pinout key?

Since this is a 6 cyl SOHC I was told only Ford can do the work. Is that true? What should I expect to pay for something like this. Next, I have some stickiness with the door locks. Can this problem be lubricated or do the locking mechanisms need to be replaced? Finally, the keyless entry system (door pad) is not working. Is this expensive to fix? Thanks

just bought 2004 used ford explorer 4.0 v6. keep hearing like a washing machine sound when driving. If i press on brakes it slows down. I took it back to dealer, they thought it is the tires which are Michelins. Can tires make sounds like that? Also, sometimes when i put in reverse and start backing, i get a hard thump like i have ran over something. could this be transmission? otherwise than that it drives perfect. please let me know asap. Oh, i bought it used, it was a rental car.

My 1999 Explorer XLT will not keep idling at a stopped position. I have added fuel injector cleaner and even tried adjusting the idle. Is there anything else I can try without going to the dealer? The ABS light has been on for about a year. Is this a sensor that needs reseting? The driver side door no longer locks or unlocks with the keyless entry or even the lock unlock button. I see all of these things seem common. Were these all defects from the factory? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Duane, I have a 1998 4.0 SOHC V-6 Explorer. The check engine light keeps coming back on after I reset it. The problem is start-up,it does not want to idle, but still does very erractically. After it warms up, it runs fine. I cleaned the IAC, that did no good. One shop told my wife it may need new igniters, and that could be $800. The reading from the diagnostic was not clear, guy really couldnt tell me, said it may be o2 sensor. Cold weather is coming back which means it will take even longer to warm up. Any suggestions would help. Thanks

I see many of the same problems listed, but no solutions given. Sorry to ask the same old questions... Have a 2000 xlt 4.0 sohc 2x4. 1) How do I remove fuel filter w/o tearing it up? Bleed line pressure by removing fuse, starting engine? 2) The apparently very common, stuck power door lock syndrome. I've taken it apart, but it looks like it'd be next to impossible to replace anything inside there without losing a finger or two. and 3) Rear window wiper. Doesn't wipe. Fuse is good. I can't see the motor going bad before the switch(es). How to isolate/test? Any help you can give would be great!! Thanks.

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLS 4.0 6Cyl. automatic transmission with four-wheel drive. Every once in a while, the Overdrive Light begins to flash. It hesitates occasionally when shifting from second to third gear, (just slightly). If I am on normal highway conditions, everything seems to be fine, and no flashing light. But when I am going slow up and down hills, this is when the light begins to flash. Everything else seems to be fine, just this occasional hesitation and flashing light. Could it be a sensor, or something minor then having a complete transmission overhaul? Please provide insight. Thanks!

Hi, In reading others questions, I was hoping to get answers you sent to the following questions: From: George.Vassallo@pfizer.com Have a problem with my heater/ac control that I have not been able to fix. All I get is hot air, even with the Temp controler all the way in the blue, no matter what vent position I have it in. The only time that I can get somewhat cool air is if it is in Max A/C and even than it's not that cold. I've tried replacing the temp control potentiometer switch on the instrument panel, but that didn't work. I have traced back and it appears that all my vaccum lines are working to allow the individual vents to open and close, however I did notice that there is also a vaccum accuated, I will assume a ball valve that is tied into the heater supply line prior to going into the fire wall to the heatre box. It appears that this valve stays fully open unlees in the Max A/C mode, not sure if this is part of the problem. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions as to what might be cauing this problem? from: rdr213@charter.net I have a 1998 ford explorer 4.0L/6cyl. xlt. My A/C compressor isn't cycling on at all. I'm getting warm air when the A/C is switched on. What could be the solution to fix this problem? thanks Roy Could I get the answers to these problems? Thank you, Tina

Keep getting code po153 on my 98 ford ranger. I know that it is an O2 sensor right bank. The truck has a 4.0 litre. It does not seem to affect performance that i have noticed. Is there anything that i should be looking for or doing to correct this problem. I am going to pull the MAF and clean it as i had done some time ago. The code is coming more often know that the weather is getting cooler. It will not happen until i am running at 80 K or 55 mile per hour. But if running over that speed it does not seem to set the code. Could you please direct me to a solution. I am guessing at this point it probably is the sensor itself. Thanks Dave

I recently purchased a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport. About a month ago, I came out of work and could not get it to stay running. It would run so long as I kept my foot on the gas but would die out as soon as I took my foot off. I used the factory remote several times locking and unlocking the doors but nothing. I finally got it to stay running by unlocking the passenger door from the outside with the key. This has happened numerous times since and have been able to get it running by either locking and unlocking various doors from sometimes the inside and sometimes the outside. In addition to this, sometimes the airbag light will continue flashing the whole time I am driving and sometimes it will just stay on and sometimes it acts as it should. Last week, I started having problems with the light on my radio. A couple of times, the light showing the radio station and the clock would not come on till after driving for 5 minutes or so. Today, no matter what I do, I cannot keep the car running. I am a woman and by no means a mechanic, but it appears that the theft device is not disarming. I also have the keypad on my door. My remote door lock pad will not work at my work, I guess due to an interference, so I lock it using the keypad and then unlock it using the key. This seems to be when I have the most trouble. Previously, when I could use the remote to lock and unlock, I would never have a problem. That was not the case today. I used the remote last night to lock and the remote this morning to unlock and could not get it to disarm. I had to drive to and from work with one foot on the brake and one foot on the gas. Every time I took my foot off the gas, it would die. I need to get it fixed but I'm afraid the dealer will charge me a fortune as my son believes it's in the electronics. Please help. Thanks Terry

Hello I want to replace the fuel filter on my 1999 explorer sport (4.0L SOHC), because it won't hold idle all of a sudden. But I can drive it around using two feet (if you know what I mean). So I get under the truck and take off the clips on the filter, and it looks like the filter should just be pulled off the lines after that. I started pulling it and I was pulling pretty hard when I figured that I might be doing something wrong. Am I missing something? or should I just pull harder?

well I couldnt get any help from the haynes manual so I am in a real need of somebody that can help me,,,,,, I hope. I have a 1991 ford explorer. which I recently bought, but the temp and fuel gauge dont work????? I have heard of some vehicles that have a voltage limiter that can go bad, which will make them both not work . I had an experience with a nissan that had the exact same problem. when i further investigated the problem by taking the cluster out, I noticed it had a little box on the back of the instrument cluster that had 3wires on it that were attached to both the temp and fuel gauge? which lead me to think well what the heck maybe thats the problem since everything else I checked out was working great. so I went to the nearest wrecking yard and found one. went home and when I hooked it up they both started working again, it was like wow I couldnt believe they were both coming up and working. so thats what makes me think well maybe ford has something similar to that. but in the manuals they dont have much in the way of telling you if the have a voltage limiter? I was hoping somebody could help me. I am well aware of the typical hole in the float problem. plus can there also be some type of ground problem? any help would be greatly appreciated. hoping to not run out of gas or overheat the engine before i can fix this pain in butt

It will not stay running when I start it.I can drive it to work, it sits for 8 hours and then when I start it, it takes forever before it will run and not die. I try and put it in drive and it will quit running. I go through about 5 tries at this and it will finally go. It jumps around trying to get out the parking lot and sometimes quits when I stop at a stop sign. I am afraid I am going to pull out in traffic, and it will die. It has done this for about 4 months. I have tried different gas and letting it warm up awhile before going. Help!

I have a 1991 Ford F150 Supercrew 5.0 Truck. I have replaced the EGR, the oxygen sensor and the Idle Control thingy. This has fixed the cold start surge and the problem of suddenly dying. But now after starting the truck and driving for maybe 1 mile, the engine suddenly dies without warning. No check engine light, no nothing. I then start the truck and it immediately starts again and does not die anymore. Anybody know what I should try next? The fuel line has been pressure chaecked and is fine. I would like to hear any suggestions. The truck has only 84,000 miles and runs good otherwise. Thanks.

I just got a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport 2nd owner in August for my girlfriend. No big problems but recently she's noticed when she tries to use her side to roll down the passenger side window it doesn't work right. Like it goes down a little or not at all. Could this just be a loose wire on the driver side or a bigger problem and the rear wiper works most of the time, gets stuck in back window. I'm trying to get an appointment to take in the truck when she doesn't need it. Should I be more concerned about the problems?

I just brought a used 1999 Ford Explorer Sport. 2 days ago the check engine light came on. The car has just had an oil change a few weeks ago, right before I got it. It also had a smog check. I've checked the water & oil leves, everything is ok there. It seems to idel a little fast when I first start it up in the mornings, but it's done that since I've had it. It seems to be running normal, and don't notice it leaking or the gauges doing anything odd. However this morning on my way into work I noticed it running a little ruff and looked down at the temp gauge and it was all the way past cold. With in a few minutes though it rose right back up to normal and seemed to be running fine again. Any suggestions on what to check or to look for? Or how to rest set the light so it will go off. All I can see it thaat yellow light in the cornor of my vision when I'm driving and it's driving me crazy. This is my 3rd ford, but my other one were both older and did not have these fancy computer in them ('68 mustang & '88 ranger). Just need a suggestion on which direction I should go in. Thanks, Kristy

I have 98 explorer sport, SOHC 4.0 engine w/ 95,000 miles. 2 weeks ago started having intermittnet problems w/ starting, as if battery was slowly dying but would recharge fine w/ driving. 2 days ago had to have it jump started and ever since it sounds like it is a diesel engine. Makes the same noise whether idling or running. No engine lights on, no loss of performance. Took it to mechanics who all said (same shop) it was possibly a "top end but sounds like bottem end noise, possily bad oil pump or spun out barring". They said I would basically have to have part of my engine rebuilt w/ a price quote of between $1500-1900. Further suggested I take it to the Ford dealer as "that should not have happened at 95,000 miles. Any advise or comments you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ss

Hello, I have a 2000 Ford Exlorer Limited. I have had serveral major problems with this vehicle. I am now told that I have a broken Leaf Spring and it is going to cost over 1,000.00 to fix. I have spoken to several people who say that this should only happen on a car that has been driven 4X4 aggressively or one that is very old. Mine has only been on the highway. To make things more interesting. The exhaust system is loose and rattling and there is a thumping under the car when you start it. I am begining to think that there is an underlying issue here. Can you give me any feedback on this issue? Sincerely, Laura

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer AWD. In the last 3 weeks, since the weather has turned colder, I have experienced a grinding and popping noise coming from the front end of the vehicle. It also feels as if the 4WD is kicking in and the 4X4 High and 4X4 Low comes on the dashboard and flash. I have taken it to the local Ford dealer and the computer check shows no error codes. The service manager was going to contact OASIS and see what they may know, but 2 weeks later no response.

I see there are alot of people with similar issues, but I do not see the responses. Maybe you can help me with my 98 explorer Eddie Bauer. 1) Check engine light comes on every so often after refueling. Have to pay to get it "reset". Is this something I can do myself? 2) Radio display goes on and off for no apparent reason? 3) Antenna need help going up or down 4) Cannot find code to keyless entry anywhere. please end the frustration....Thanks

Both switches have been replaced with no luck. If I short the switch the window will go up. Are there relays somewhere that control this? Any ideas? Thanks, Lou

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLS 4.0 6Cyl. automatic transmission . Every once in a while, the Overdrive Light begins to flash. It hesitates occasionally when shifting from second to third gear, (just slightly). If I am on normal highway conditions, everything seems to be fine, and no flashing light. But when I am going slow up and down hills, this is when the light begins to flash. Everything else seems to be fine, just this occasional hesitation and flashing light. Dealership states that Ford knows about transmission problem, but says it's normal wear and tear. Transmission has only 60,000 miles on it. Thanks John

I have checked the fuse, and have visually inspected the shift motor. I don't have any schematics, nor can I find any that include the shift motor, that I can use to see if the motor is getting power. Any input concerning wiring, relays, etc.. would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I want to install a Prestone Cooling System Flush and Fill Kit on my 2002 Ford Explorer (8 cyl.). I have done this on previous cars I've owned and never had a problem locating the heater inlet hose, until now. I am pretty sure I have properly identified the other (heater outlet) hose, which runs from the firewall to the top of engine close to the water pump. That black rubber hose is marked "OB". There is a very similar hose marked "IB" which runs from the firewall (it starts out parallel to hose "OB") and loses itself somewhere behind the engine near the center of the firewall and doesn't seem to reappear at the top of the engine, anywhere near the thermostat, or anywhere else I can actually see. Can I safely assume that "IB" is the inlet hose, which the Kit instructions direct me to cut to install the T-connector (which is where the garden hose gets connected during the flush and fill process)???

I just cannot locate it anywhere on or near the visible parts of the engine of this vehicle. After reading generic instructions on where to find the PCV, I couldn't find it. I went to a couple of websites and saw other Q&As on the same subject, and still couldn't find it. Help!

Hi, I have a 1994 Ford Explorer XLT 4x4 and noticed a squeaking/chirping noise when my vehicle is moving coming from the tires and also when brakes are applied (sometimes). I just had the front or back brakes (can't recall) done, pads replaced, and bearings repacked, and did notice a faint squealing after brakes were done. I hope they just need to be adjusted and what gets me is I don't think it would be the brakes, since the noise occurs when vehicle is moving and brakes aren't even applied. Hopefully someone has an answer, can't afford another brake job now. Thanks Josh

Once they looked it over again- they resolved that issue, and now my ABS light won't turn off. They have told me that there is something wrong and I will have to have it looked at elsewhere. Couldn't it be something they have done to accidentally disable my ABS system? Please help- so upset. Amy

2002 Explorer EB Edition. The liftgate has developed a large split spreading from just below the glass to the bottom of the liftgate, alongside the Ford emblem. It starts as a crack about 1/4" wide, and near the bottom splits into two like an upside down letter Y. No trauma to the liftgate, rear end or chassis. Has anyone else had an experience like this?

I have a 2002 Eddie Bauer Explorer with almost 35000 miles and 2 weeks out of warranty. My transmission died and FORD won't cover it. My position is that they should because my car has been maintained and it's not my fault that it died. The transmission light or some kind of warning light should have come on to tell me there was a problem earlier. They're telling me that 2nd gear is completely gone and the other gears aren't far behind. I brought it in immediately when the warning light came on. What course of action can I take? What's a reasonable price for a new transmission? I'm being given a $3600 estimate. What about rebuilding it? Does that just postpone getting it replaced later? How much should a rebuilt one cost? Thanks!

I have a 2002 Explorer. At 57,000 miles the transmission needed to be replaced. It had been in the shop for the same noise prior to the warranty expiring but Ford would not cover it. They offered me $1500.00 credit sticking me for $1700.00. At the same time, the dealer said they fixed a rattle behind the dashboard. They did not. Now a different dealer tells me I need a Timing Chain Tension kit at $1200.00. They say that if I can live with the noise that it will not harm the engine or it's performance. Does anyone know if that is true?

My 2000 V6 Explorer is having fuel pressure regulator problems; not starting on the first few turns, and I'm getting mixed signals from different shops on what the problem is. Please help/advise: Is the regulator on the fuel pump in the tank? Would replacing that ($500) make the fuel pressure better when I start up? Could it be anything else??

I have an 02 explorer with 53,000 miles with a whining in the rear end. I've seen where a lot of people have had a similar problem and Ford has yet to come up with a fix for this. I have a friend that had his rear end replaced under warranty and it's starting to do the same thing. Do I have any recourse with Ford as far as a solution? I'm not under warranty! Thanks, Scott

Need Help with my 2000 Ford XLT Explorer. After I had my two heads replaced and all my hoses replaced by the "Dealer" I started to experience the following issue: After driving about 60 miles with about two 15 minute rests I can bring my Explorer home park it for about thirty minutes and here is where my issue is I go to start my Explorer and it turns over but idles at about 500 RPMS (shaky) and wants to turn off. (To me it does not have the automatic RPM increase and drop to RPM Specification function.) I know the Explorers should sound like a vacuum cleaner and then the sound would slowly go away mine doesn't even do the sound at could start up and I feel that is partly my issue. Can you please help? All help would be greatly appreciated!

All rebuilds range from 1400.00 to 2400.00 and I feel I am getting taken especially when Ford designed this thing to fail! does anyone have a solution for me or am I just another one paying for one of Fords better ideas.

Im not sure if the rumor about because of the block being made of alluminum it might be cracked. i dont know where to even begin taking apart or checking to make sure it is blown. I do know for a fact there is water in the oil. Also i do know the freeze plug has a decent leak. Could that also be the reason y it is blown or if it might not be blown. please any info u can send me would be helpfull.

I have a 2001, F150, 2 wheel drive, 5.4 liter motor with about 70,000 miles. Most of the miles are Hwy, miles. I believe that the transmission is a 4R70W. Upon backing out of a driveway the reverse went out. I was told the reverve has no electronics and that it maybe either a hydraulic problem or a gear problem. I am wondering if there is a self check test that can be done to figure out the problem before I take it to a transmission shop. I am mechanically inclined and have worked on older cars in the past. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty. My biggest fear is getting riped off by mechanic. If I can fix it myself and save money, I wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Thank you, Jon Hurst

Recently went to a "10 minute oil change shop" and they commented that that there was a leak in the rear differential and when he looked further he said he saw grey metal shavings indicating fluid levels were low and grinding was occurring. I change oil as recommended and go to Ford for the 15/30K recommended dealer maintenance. He stated Ford doesn't service front and rear diff as part of recurring maintenance. Said I need to ask for it. I'm confused in that I thought that if I followed owner's guide it looks like I'd be in good shape, but he said Explorer is show significant signs of wear and tear. Any advice is appreciated.

The window goes down but does not lock into place. As a result the "Door Ajar" light is on. When I looked at the truck the salesman showed me how to close it using the power lock in the cargo area. When I try this it doesn't lock. Am I not doing something? I'm concerned that this latch might be broken and I missed it when I looked at the truck.

Hi Great site! My 2002 Mercury Mountaineer just turned 51,000 miles and has smoke streaming from the tailpipe. Oil level is good but engine running a bit rough. It is a lease and is due to go back in Jan. 2005. Any idea what it could be? Dealer obviously will want it fixed as I am over the extended warranty by 6,000 miles it will cost me Big bucks to fix I assume. Any help on making the expense smaller will be of great help. It is the 4.6 v8 engine. When I leased the vehicle 3 yrs ago it made a strange noise that the dealer couldn't pinpoint or fix. They changed the tranny and the catalytic converters and told me the rattling noise in the engine was not a big deal. Do you think that this noise could be the cause of the current problem? Please help! ED

I have a 1991 ford explorer sport 2wd. My gas meter stopped working ,what makes the gas meter stop.I also have an electrical problem,when the truck is started and idling in park all the lights in and out of the truck dimmers and brightens constantly,(i have a sound system with 2 amplifiers and 2 subwoofers,2 6x9's and 2 4x6 speakers).Also it takes along time for my truck to start up.If it sits overnight without being driven,it seems like the battery is drained but after a few turns on the ignition it starts up,but if i'm driving and let it sit for a few hours it starts up with no problem.What could be the problem.

After I let it sit for awhile it will fire up like nothing happened. I have replaced the fuel filter, cleaned the fuel injector, replaced the battery and the solinoid(diode suppressed). I have taken it to a shop, but they don't know what it could be since the check engine light isn't on. They said they couldn't put it on the computer for a read.

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer, XLT, with a 4.0 Litre motor with 140,000 miles. We start the vehicle and run it for 10 to 30 minutes. Then we turn it off. We then try to start it, the vehicle turns over, however, will not ignite. After a couple of hours of leaving the vehicle alone, the vehicle will then start. Once the vehicle is running, it runs fabulous. We had the fuel pump, fuel filter, and a complete tune up done at the Ford dealership after the ran a so called diagnostic analysis. Could the problem be the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor or the IAC (Idle Air Control) sensor? I need help.

Hello Duane, I think you probably heard my problem many times. I own a 97 explorer and my 4x4 dash lights turn on and off. I replaced the 4x4 motor and still does it. Now, I think it is running in the 4x4 HI all the time. When I turn the switch to 4x4 low, I can hear changing gears the same to come back to 4x4 hi, but nothing to the 2x2. When I turn the wheels it makes a really high noise. What are your comments? Please help thanks Carlos

This past weekend I noticed powersteering fluid on the garage floor from my '99 manual shift Ford Ranger. I checked the level in the resevoir and it was down @ 4 oz. I smelled the p.s. oil dip stick I got under the truck and found no leakage around the front side of the engine area. Looking farther back there is quite a bit of p.s. oil around the engine oil pan and the transmission and what looks like the starter. The trany fill and drain plugs aren't leaking and I have had no problem with shifting the veh. so I still think it is power steering. One other clue is sudenly today I get a shetter effect from the right front wheel when making right turns. Any ideas?

Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to help me. I have a 91 explorer Eddie Bauer edition. I recently made about a 3 hour trip in it and a few miles from home felt a little chimmy and started hearing a whirring noise when accelerating. I assumed it was the transmission fluid running low and have check this and it is still registering fine on the dipstick and the vehicle will make the noise anytime the the vehicle is accelerated, even without being in gear. The transmission seems to be shifting fine and isnt winding out or anything, just this strange noise whenever the gas peddle is pushed. Any suggestions? Thanks

I have pulled the radio and checked for fuses or open wires, did't find any. Checked all fuses in fuse box and under hood. Not sure if relays are good, can't tell. My radio is now totally unhooked and my cd player and with the car off, the audio fuse sparks and blows when I put in a new one. Sounds like something is shorting out. Any suggestions on what to check? Could it be one of the relays are blown? Thanks

I have a '93 Explorer, XLT, 5 spd, 4x4. It appears that the power steering pump is going out. I have been trying to find some good deals on some of the websites, such as eBay. But all that seems to be listed are those for the Ford P/Us. Which look exactly the same, however their parts numbers are slightly different. With some of the killer deals there, is it possible to use a Power Steering pump from a different Ford product in my Explorer without too much of a problem? So far I have found one possible match in a '87 Taurus. I found one website that crossmatches the Taurus' numbers and my Explorer's number. Thanks in advance, Dale

The next night I heard the car attempting to start over and over again once again without keys. I have heard numerous stories about different accessories running when the car is off. The end result of most of them was the car caught on fire and burned. The problem seems to be a bad iginition switch. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have 94 explorer, I just got it from a tow shop...it's been sitting for about a year...the gas gauge worked for about a day...stay's on empty now but when you turn the truck off the gauge moves to the center of quarter marks, not sure if thatís the default position but if it's the floater in the tank, can that tank be dropped so I could get to it or is it gonna be some big or-deal. Also the check engine comes on, had it checked and replaced the sensor on the throttle body cause it would cut out if you stepped on the gas to fast...well the check engine light still comes on even though the other problem is fixed. Have to have the truck smogged so I guess I'll find out why the light keeps coming on...

I recently had to repair my 2002 Explorer transmission. I was on the internet searching recalls, when I ran across your website. Is there anyone else that is having this problem? I know one other person in the same town I live in that has had to replace her transmission in her 2002 Explorer too.

When the lights go out there is a buzzing and/or clicking kind of sound coming from behind the dash near and beneath the radio. What can be causing all this? Is there a circuit breaker that could be om the edge of complete failure? Is there a relay that could act this way? I really need to get this problem solved before there is a huge accident some night. Please somebody help me!!

I'm having electrical issues with my charging system on my 1998 Ford Explorer-- I replaced a worn battery and the new one (~12.4V) shows a low voltage on my dashboard display. After 40-45 minutes of running, the ABS and airbag lights become illuminated and the voltage is very low. I tested the altenator with a multimeter and it was 12.0V (which seems low). Does this mean I have an altenator problem, a voltage regulator problem, a fuseable link issue or other.

I have a 93 Ford Explorer, 6 cylinder, 4.0. It was running fine until I got a short in my light switch, (Dimmer Switch). My alternator went out, I got a rebuilt one at NAPA, we put it on and still have the battery light on. The guy at NAPA tested the rebuilt alternator and said that it was good. We have changed all the wiring, solenoid, new battery, new plug-ins. I have no clue what else it could be. NAPA will not take back the rebuilt alternator so I am stuck with that, but I am thinking that maybe I should just buy a new one. Anyone else have this problem?? What can I do??

My 2000 ltd edition explorer o/d light came on during our first long distance trip. If i switch the car off and then on again the light goes off and the car appears to drive as normal. Ford mechanics believe it to be the torque converter, but the auto transmission specialist find it hard to believe that it would be broken, then work again. this is driving me crazy, Has anybody else had this problem and found a solution?, would be eternally grateful

Hi Duane, me again... sorry to bother you, but was wondering if there is an easy way to open the hood of my 2000 Explorer sport... apparently, someone has sat on the hood on the passenger side and now that side seems to be lower than the rest (it sits a bit lower than the quarter panel in that area)... incredibly difficult to open the hood now.. (I used to bang and pull up while the release is pulled and after several trys it seems to pop open... but not now.. (I left it in the care of the Jiffy Lube guys and it now refuses to open...no matter how hard you try ) Anyway to release it from underneath? I'm also experiencing a horrible squeek when driving over bumps.. coming from the front drivers side.. I assume it's bushings that need greasing?.. a simple spray of silicon as a temp solution maybe?.... oh yes, my radio LED has finally bit the bisket too.. another easy fix as I've seen on your website.. and will do that task as soon as it gets a bit warmer outside...but for now.. that squeaking is driving me.. and my baby is in need of windshield washer fluid, but wont open her mouth!... oh the joys of older vehicle ownership!

After the garage replaced the actuator (what I was told was replaced!) I noticed the handle is very hard to open. I asked garage if adjustments could be made to open easier and they state they need to replace whole handle assembly now! Is this true? I figured some adjustment was possible, but I am not in the least mechanically inclined. Thanks, Rob

I have a 2002 4x4 Ford Explorer. I have a noise that sounds like a pump out of liquid coming from the drivers side rear inner panel. I have a rear window wiper. Could this be the pump to it. I do not have owners manuel and do not know where to fill this up. Any suggestions?

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLT with less than 46k miles on it. The O/D Off light began flashing two days ago after I noticed when taking off at a red light,etc it didn't want to go from 1st to 2nd gear smooth--jerked like it was missing or slipping. Then the O/D light started flashing. When you stop, shut off ignition, it resets until you drive a while. My husband took it this a.m. and put on machine. Mechanic said it needed a "Valve Body" cost= 300. If that didn't fix it, overhaul transmission=$1300. I searched a lot of sites and noticed a lot of you are having the same problem. What did you do? Does this problem need to brought to Ford or FTC attention? Please help before we make a wrong expensive move. NOSPAM

Could I get you to send me a picture of where the intake manifold is? My check engine light is on and is reading lean on both banks. I put in fuel injector cleaner and I'd like to spray some throttle body cleaner on on the intake manifolds... next step would be to replace the gaskets (bad cold wx start up) The guy at AutoZone also said to fill it up with a high grade gas every 3-4 tanks. (99 Sport Explorer) Thank you!

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport and have some serious valve tapping, especially when the vehicle shifts from first to second, or going up hills. Usually it ended shortly after it started but now constant. My vehicle has 62,000 miles on it. I had a tune-up and new plugs 4 months ago and it stopped briefly. I then drove to AZ (2200 miles) and it started while I was down there. I thought that maybe it was climate change or elevation change, but when I got back to Ohio (2200 miles later) it was only worse. I have had oil changes of 5W-30 as instructed in the manual. Is it fuel? Oil? Need fro new spark plug wires? Please help its driving me batty!! Tim Hartzell (Ohio)

I had a wheel alignment done and the next day I was on a trip and started hearing a noise coming from the front right tire like a 4x4 tire humming also can feel it on floor board I had the alignment done with my 20 inch wheels on and it only cost 39.99 one place qouted me $100 cause they had to replace the camber shims or plates something like that sounds like for 39.99 those were'nt included. A couple of places said it might be the tire but I rotated the 20's and the stock wheels and got the same sound happens around 30-50 miles per hour and when I turn slightly to the right like driving on a curve in the road Ex. exit ramps oh by the way its a 2000 ford explorer 2wd xlt.

Duane, I have a '93 Explorer that has developed a clunk at the steering wheel and when you turn the wheel, the clunk sound even causes a slight twitch of the transmission shift lever. If you have any information on that I'd be glad to spend the money, but I can't tell if you cover that subject? Have you ever heard of such an ocurrence? I noticed in some of the e-mails the problem with the Explorer's that would not come out of or go into 4 x 4. I had that problem and found the solution on the internet, printed the pictures, opened up the shifter module, located the problem and fixed it. I still have the hard copies if you'd like me to send them to you.

I see this problem posted here for similar vehicles. 1999 Ford Explorer - the driver's door switch for lock and unlock will not work. All locks work when lock and unlock from passenger door, or remote. I put in a used switch, but no difference. I put a voltage tester on all 5 wires leading to the driver's lock/unlock switch, and I got virtually no readings (in milli-volts only). I know my tester was working, because I would get almost 12 volt reading on one of the wires at the electric window switch (with key in "on" position"). Where do I check next. Thanks, Brad Bowers

Hi, I recently ran into a brake problem with my 2000 Ford Explorer. I let it go too long, so I had to replace front and rear pads and disks. It all went fine until I went to remove the last rear disk. I loosened the parking brake using the access hole in the back, but as much as I hit it, it wouldn't come loose. Do you have any suggestions for what I can do besides beat on it, heat it up, or swear at it? In neutral, it rotated easily, so I don't think it was binding on the parking brake. I would appreciate any advise that you could give me. Thank you Chris Lovegrove

I have two problems, first my check engine light came on and AutoZone told me it was my O2 sensors, two need to be replaced. Then some jerk knocked my taillight cover off. The dealership is trying to charge me an arm and a leg, is it hard to replace both of these?? Can you give me some instructions, if I were to buy the parts?

Problem-- My 1995 ford explorer 4x4 has suddenly developed a problem. The car will not start it acts as though its flooded . It shows no check engine light although the light is operational. I replaced the fuel pump and filter-- that wasn't the problem. It dosn't always act up, but when it does you just have to wait and try to start it after 10 minutes or so and it may work or not . It happens when the car is hot or cold it matters not. Any ideas -Thanks Ernie

The battery terminals were loose, so I scrubbed them and the poles on the battery. The Explorer is still slow to start. The battery is brand new. Could it be the starter?

I am having a problem with the door locks on my 2000 Explorer. No matter how we access the locks they either won't unlock or will not lock. Ex. When we use either the keyless remote or the door keypads the back door and glass won't unlock along with the door behind the driver. The door behind the front passengers side won't lock unless you push down the lock on the door itself. All these locks started acting up at about the same time, before Thanksgiving. Please help, this will cost a fortune at Capital Ford!

I have a 96 ford explorer w/auto 4x4. When I accelerate from a stop in auto 4x4 it seems to keep kicking in and out really hard. I pulled the vacuum hoses out of a housing, (donít know name of part), located on the back of the front axel and sprayed penetrating fluid in the holes. This seemed to temporarily fix the problem but it keeps coming back. Is it possible this part is bad, (hole in diaphragm etc.). Thanks for any help you can offer.

I have a 98 Explorer xlt 2wd with the 5.0. When i use the left turn signal sometimes it makes a buzzing sound and doesnt work, the signal light stays lit all the time and wont go off. Also the check engine light is on and ive checked all the fluids and everything, could this be the o2 sensors? The last problem I have is that the car rides very rough and the front passenger side squeaks whenever i hit a bump. I have put all new shocks on but this hasnt helped. Everytime a put a new fog light in a week later it is shattered due to the rough ride i assume. If you could help me i would greatly appreciate it, thanks a lot!

Having problems with my 1999 Explorer Drivers side door lock. The car automatically locks the doors when placed in gear, this is not the problem, being unable to open the door afterwards is the problem. It gets stuck in the locked position and it's hard to pull the button up to unlock and the remote won't unlock it either. I'm stuck in my explorer giggling the handle, trying to pop the button up so it unlocks the door and also clicking and clicking and clicking the remote. HELP! Wife is afraid of driving the Explorer, afraid she will get stuck inside in an accident or fire.

I have a 1998 Explorer XLT. I am having a problem with the oil pressure guage. The guage started fluttering around one day. It seemed to still drive fine, so I just left it alone. One day the car would not turn over. My "weekend" mechanic could not find anything wrong with it, except he said maybe the bad oil pressure guage was sending a bad signal and keeping the car from turning over. So he replaced the Oil Pressure Swith/Interruptor Commutateur. It was fine for a few months, then the gauge starting fluttering around again. So my "weekend" mechanic replaced the Oil Pressure Swith/Interruptor Commutateur again. Now when you turn the key to 1st position, the guage goes up to the normal range, but when the car is started up the gauge goes all the way down to the low end of the guage. Therefore my check guage light is on constantly and if there ever is "really" a problem with the oil pressure, I would not know it. Please help.

To whomever can help me: We just purchased a 1998 Ford Explorer XLT and there is a 6 change CD player in the console between the driver and passenger side. The original owners did not use the CD player and the dealership has tried to help us but no one can figure out how to work the CD player. You can put the CD's in the player and slide it back into the holder but nothing plays. Someone suggested possibly a certain radio station that it has be play on. Could someone help me on this. I have the VIN or anything else you need if necessary. Please let me know. Thank You. Barbara Werner

I have a Ford Explorer 2000 XLS. Just recently I noticed that the rear door hatch will not lock when I engage the locks for all the doors. Now I know for the rear window, you have to manually lock that one with the key. But the rear hatch will not lock when I lock the car for the night. the fuse for the door locks is not blown. What is going on?

My daughter's '99 Explorer Sport has a problem with the driver's side door lock. At one time, it would not unlock except with the inside door handle. Now it won't lock, even using the remote, power lock switch or the key. I can't push the lock down using quite a bit of force. I don't want to break it, but she attends school at an inner city school and often comes home late after dark. She is very uncomfortable riding without her door locked. The other door and rear door lock fine. How do I get the inside door panel off and check out what is going on?

I have a 2000 Ford Windstar 3.8 liter engine, automatic transmission with overdrive with a fuel problem that hasn't been able to be diagnosed. When the car is cold, it runs fine. Once it has run for awhile, about an hour, it has a severe loss of power, with no acceleration whatsoever. Another observation, even when cold, the engine starts to break up around 4,000 rpm. When hot, it breaks up around 1,500 and has no power. We were on vacation when it first happened and a dealer supposedly diagnosed it (but I didn't get the codes). They said it was either a clogged fuel filter, an inoperative or clogged EGR, or bad fuel injectors. I replaced the fuel filter, removed the EGR, all clear there, and removed the injectors and cleaned them. They all seem to be operating and are in-spec for ohms. I checked fuel pressure and it is just below spec for all readings. Replacing the fuel pressure regulator did no good. The car idles fine, even when it has no power. It seems to be an electrical sensor that gets too hot and fails. Problem is that when the car cools off, it seems to work fine again. I doubt it is the fuel pump itself since it is far from any heat generating parts. Not having an OBD-II tester, I haven't been able to diagnose it. And when the dealer finally gets around to checking it out, the car has cooled off too much and they don't seem to want to take the time to get it hot again. The car has 72,000k miles on it, it has P/S and ABS. Any ideas where to continue looking?

I have a black 1997 Explorer Sport. Recently my check gauge light came on and i noticed the radiator gauge was all the way touching the "H" icon. I immediatly went home waited for the radiator to cool and put antifreeze/coolant in it. A few days later i noticed the gauge moving from the middle to "h" and back up to about the 3/4 level of the "L" and "H" gauge then all the way to the H gauge. It keeps going back and fourth to those spots. Now as soon a i start the car and run it for about 5 min it goes to Hot and Stays on there. I have no leaks and and the coolant level is high. I dont have alot of money because i am a poor college kid, so i didnt wanna take it to my mechanic. Do you guys have any ideas what might be the problem? And is it simple to fix and how much $$$? thanks - Justin

I was going to install it when I saw that you need to disconnect the Fuel system fuse, the only problem is that the instructions do not state which one that is for my year truck. I do not have an owners manual because I bought my truck used. I am assuming that it is either #9 or #19 because those were the ones for the 97-98 and 01-02 f-150s, but I would like to make sure before I go ahead and do it. So if you could just let me know the number of the fuel system fuse for my truck I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

I have a 91 explorer with 4.0 engine. check engine light came on, code says egr valve or egr sensor. I have looked all over and can't find the egr valve. I've seen the part, I know what it's suppose to look like, but it's not where people tell me it's suppose to be.Did Ford hide it under intake tunnel or put it on the rear of engine? The picture I saw shows it on driver side of engine, connected to the intake. It's not there.

I have 3 quesetions. The first is I broke the mirror on the right hand side of my '97 explorer, I have a replacement how do I change it? Does the door panel have to come off? The third is my A/C only works on max, if it's not on max, the air is hot. What is my problem? Thanks, I like being able to ask a question on the net instead of calling the dealership and being told Bring it In.

It doesn't make that fuel injection priming sound (sort of hum/buzz) when I first turn the key. Is there a fuse or sensor that's blown or is it a fuel pump? Thanks!

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer with the ABS light on. A technicain hooked it up and told me it is the left rear wheel sensor but Ford wanted to charge me $143.00 for the part and that's not including labor. I ordered the sensor for $17.97 from Rock Auto but I don't know that much about replacing it. Do I need to remove the brakes to get to it or can I just remove the wheel and it is a quick fix? Any info helpful. Thanks

Our 1996 Explorer XLT is being difficult. The check engine light has been on for some time and it doesn't idle in park or neutral. It works fine in gear. After many attempts to read trouble codes, I went to the local dealership. They say it needs a new IAC, DPFE and it has a leak in the intake manifold. I asked Ford to consider doing the intake repair gratis since they have a common problem. I find out in a few days what they decide. In the mean time, I have already cleaned out both the DPFE and IAC and no changes. I am replacing them tonight. Any good clean advise out there???

I have 98 explorer 4wd. Last fall I had to drive thru some flooded roads. After that the 4w hi and 4wh low light would ocasionally start blinking alternatly as I was driving at hiway speeds. Sometimes while making tight turns at slow speeds it was apparent that the 4wd was engaging. It didn't happen often enough to make me get it repaired and then it quit doing it.Now 8 months latter I've changed 4 tires and to save money the tread design doesn't match, but the type and size are the same. the problem with the lights and engagement has started again. Can it be the tires or maybe some sensor and if so can I do something myself to correct it? any info would be helpful. thanks!

Hi, Do you have any information related to how to install a door lock actuator? This need to be performed on a Ford Explorer 2000, four doors with keyless entry access and an OEM alarm installed, the door affected is the driver's. The door knob does not goes up electricaly neither from the inside (push button) or remotely (alarm control) nor by activating the correct code at the keyless entry. I do have the correct part (OEM actuator) available to make the replacement, but I will definitely need a written procedure if available. Thanks in advance for your prompt help. Regards.

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT (6 Cylinder) and therefore assume that it has a PATS II system. I lost my keys and had one key made 4 days ago (that's all I could afford right now). Today I my mechanic was working on the door lock in which hw only observed mechanical functions of the lock - nothing was replaced. Two hours after I left, my truck just "killed" and won't start. I can turn the key into position 1 or two - just enough to turn the dash board warning lights on. I can only proceed to turn the key about a quarter of a full extra turn position past that point. I feel that it should turn more, but can't remember if it did. The "Theft" light only comes on for three seconds and then vanishes. I tested the battery and check for electrical issues - but everything seemed fine (horn works, lights radio, etc.). I occasionally connect a Walkman CD player to the cigarette lighter as I did today. The locksmith who programmed the key insists that it is not the key - simply because the Theft light does not stay on. He advised me to find a "reset" button which would be very small and well hidden on the driver's side. he said this should take care of my problem. Is there such a button, I searched for hours and could never find one. What should I do, please help.

However it is MUCH louder when in Drive or Reverse and reving the engine while holding the brake AND while driving. Before 2300 RPM's and after 2800 RPM's there is no more noise. Information for other Explorer owners and/or buyers. I've had to put a transmission and a rearend in this vehicle. Word of advice...buy extended warranty. I'm glad I did.

I bought and replaced both bulbs in the tail light assembly but it didn't solve the problem. I would really like to be able to do this small task myself because the mechanics around here see a woman coming and they see $$$$...... Thanks! Diana

Dear Sir: I have a 1997, Ford Explorer Limited. The radio(JBL) quit working. The radio only works for the low frequency from the rear speaker. The door speakers do not work. Once in a great while the door speakers work. Is there a quick fix I can perform? The auto radio shop I contacted told me that I have to send both the main radio and the rear amplifier to be checked by the shop. I do not wish to spend too much money on the radio since it has 165,000 miles(all highway driving miles). Besides, I can't get at removing the rear amplifier. Do you have any suggestion? Sincerely, Sam

I own a 2001 V-8 Explorer and recently noticed fuel efficiency down and the engine felt like it was laboring. I checked the dash for possibly having the air on but the dial position was in the usual vent position I keep it in. Also, upon returning home later that day with the air off, I had the accumulation of condensation you normally get when the air is on. The dealership is telling me that nothing is wrong, but I know when I leave for work in the morning that the vents are throwing air that is a lot colder than it should be. Any suggestions ?

I too am an owner of this particular vehicle and I have the same problems shifting gears between 25-30 my check engine light came on 4 days after I purchased the vehicle I was told that the sensor seemed fine. My OD light flashes on and off when I have driven my truck about 15-20 mins. Also when I use my air cond. it makes a loud humming noise when I am idle and the vehicle is still running. It appears that this vehicle should be recalled.

Have you had comments on successes or failures of correcting problems on a 2002 Ford Explorer with the O/D Off light flashing. I've had input from a (non dealership) local shop that this indicates a torque converter problem and that the fix is around $2500 to repair/replace including labor. I believe the transmission part number is 55RS. I very concerned that a unit that costs that much to replace has failed at only 58K miles.

Howdy, I may use some horrid auto terminology with this explanation and question, but please bear with me. My 1994 Ranger hood latch will not grab and lock. The safety mechanism does work but I cannot let the hood drop, or set the hood down gently and push down, to let the latch grab and lock the hood. I though it was a stuck latch, but a generous spraying with WD-40 did not work. Any ideas?

It will go backwards but not forward. When the original problem began it was the O/D light flashing, when I got the vechile back upon shifting into drive the hesitation time was huge before it actually engaged. any ideas?

My daughter has a 2002 Ford Explorer with about 65,000 miles and a blown engine!! Oil changes were done but not always as timely as required but never more than 10,000 miles apart..... My question to the dealer was and is.... should an engine only go 65,000 miles? Ford dealer is advising because oil changes weren't performed as required they can not help with cost of new engine. My question to the site is should this happen to a 65,000 engine?? And, has it happened to others, if so what options are there? Thanks!

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport with an automatic transmission. Lately I've noticed that the transmission seems to have problems switching from 1st to second gear. It seems to slip and the engine races for a second before 2nd gear kicks in. I just had my 80,000 km maintenance done and the Ford tech said that it is likely that the transmission is going but without tearing it apart he wouldn't know for sure what was wrong and that the bill to fix it would be at least $1500 CA. Is there anything I can try to resolve this problem without paying Ford $1500+?

Thought your site would have more to it...kinda dissapointed, got the code to my keyless though, so it wasn't a total waste. You really need to put more repairs on this site. The way you demonstrate the repair steps is good and relativly easy to understand. Just please put more on here.

I have a 1996 Explorer Limited Edition. When you start up (in normal 2wd) the 4WD hi and 4WD lo lights flash on and off for a while then stop and a while down the road they will start again and flash once in a while. Also the same time that started the windows started acting up and have now stopped working entirely. Could this be a fuse problem or do you think its a short?

I have a 91' Ford Explorer.It has high miles and burns oil.After I got the oil changed they told me I needed an coolant flush and to get a new air filter on the nexted oil change.They also said it appears I have a small oil leak.SO 2 weeks later I went and got a coolant flush and they told me that there was no maintenance on the coolant they pumped out 6 gallons of muddy water to come back in 3 months...so that would be just in time for my next oil change.But now my "check engine"light keeps coming on.The ford runs fine and when I checked under the hood I didnt see anything wrong.So my question is :::Does anyone know what is wrong?FYI:I just bought this vehicle in Feb.2005.It passed smog,had a tune up,and had a rebuilt tranny in 2002............?

Hi, I have a '98 Explorer, V-8, AWD that has three problems that I would like to fix. First, I have no brake lights, all three stock ones, plus a fourth in my hitch reciever. I checked fuses and relays and the all seem fine. What might be the cause, and do you have a fix? Second, the rear wiper works only occasionaly. It will work for a few months and then stop for a few months. This has been happening for the past 3 or 4 years. Third, I have no display on my radio/tape/CD player. I see that you offer a fix for the radio, do you have fixes for the other 2, and how much will it cost to get the info from you? Thanks, Russ

Hello, I'm having the same problem as a person's comment right above me. I own a 1996 Explorer and I can't get the interior lights to turn off either although all doors are shut. I've had this problem before and it seems to have stemmed from the back door. All my other doors open and shut with no problem. I've consequently had to pull my 27 fuse to get the lights off. Any ideas? Thank you.

Hi Duane, I have read some information on your website which is really very informative but I have a slightly different engine configuration than you. I have the 4.0L over head cam engine built by Ford. I bought this 2000 Ford Explorer XLT as a replacement car which I used to own a 1996 Hyndai Sonata big improvement on my part. I ran into a "check engine" issue with my Ford which I brought it to my local Ford Dealer to be diagnosed big mistake. I was informed that my Ford was leaking coolant into chamber 3 sparkplug area which triggered the check engine light. Long story short I have had the following repairs done: Removed and Replaced Heads. Compression Tested and met Ford Standards All hoses replaced and heater wiring,coolant, thermostat ect. My issue now is when I drive my vehicle short runs within town about 25 minutes when I come back to a hot car I can turn the car over but the engine idles too low where it wants to stall. I can't get it to idle normally. Is this still the IAC component? I heard that the egr valve is also a culprit? Can you please advise? Thanks, Mark C. in distress... Love the Explorer over my Sonata... :-)

Door lock problem, 1999 Ford Explorer 4 Door. Dirverside door lock seems to fall apart all of a sudden. Open door panel by unscrewing 2 screws located in the door handle. Pull bottom of panel which is held in place by plastic caps. Pulled up and out on door panel to get the panel to release. Once the door panel is moved aside look at the window track and one small bolt holds it in place, remove bolt and then remove the track. Look up a bit and you can see what looks like a small plastic butterfly or elongated "E" shaped piece of plastic with a rod going through the it's center. When this plastic piece wears out the rod falls out and then you cannot actuate the door lock mechinism. Ford engineers are thieves. You have to replace one or both of the pieces, the Ford dealer near me wants $250 to do this repair. This is a safety issue that Ford needs to address, To put everything back just reverse your steps.

Hi,I'm looking for a remote control to operate the doors lock system for my ford explorer '93,it didn't have the original remote control when I bought it,all I know it still has the original module box instaled, do you know if I can use any remote control or does it have to be the original?. Any chance to find a second hand one at a decent price. I'll appreciate your help.I'm tired of open the doors with the key all the time. Thanks!

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus and when i put the vent or A/c on the air does not come out the front vents. It comes out the floor and defrost vetns only. I have checked the vacuum lines and they seem ok, the actuators all move when the dial is turned to go from floor to a/c so I am at a loss!! Any suggestions would be helpful. The a/c does blow clod if that matters when it is on a/c!

94 Ford explorer, rear hatch handle spins and cant get it open to buy new parts? Any suggestions to open hatch since ford decided not to put an inside handle on these? It happened after the shock absorber for the door failed (fell off) and got jammed. It has been removed but in the attempt to open the hatch it broke? Thanks a million Chuck

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport. The wipers go of by themselves even when the wiper switch is on. I have had this problem fixed twice by Ford. This time I took it to an independant garage and they told me nothing is wrong with it. Is this something that I can fix myself. Please help.

My '02 Ford Explorer has an original 6CD changer Radio (do not know the model number), recently the radio has been having problem: After a few hrs of working, it start to change stations on its own, then start removing all the CD. I could shut-off the radio, but it keep looking for all stations, showing on its display that you need to change the time (hrs/min) and that CD will be removed. It keeps doing this until, I shut off the car for a few hrs and imagine that the radio electronics cool themself. I checked out with a Co. that fix auto radios and they mentioned that Ford radios has had a problem where their main electronic board had had problems and they are changing the boards to a updated one. Any suggestions??

I would like your assistance with a brake problem I am having with my 2000 Ford Explorer XLT. Exen after changing brake pads, having new rotors placed on the front and having the edges of the pads sanded down at the request of the mechanic, they still make alot of noise. Sounds very much like metal to metal grinding, but no one can find anything wrong with the brakes. I given up on the mechanic's help, and am considering doing my brakes myself, but was told it takes a special tool to do colapse the caliper piston to put in new pads. Do you know if this is true?

I have a 93 Ford Explorer Eddie B edition just recently it stopped for a split second at a red light. I noticed that there was a slight shake before it turned off. but it cranked on one turn of the key. As I was pulling off I could hear an almost wistling noise when I accelerated. Is this a fuel injection problem? bad gas? needing a new catalatic converter?
