I've tried to pcm, crank sensor, coil pack. Today for the first time my wife's 2003 Explorer started acting weird. Get the 20wt oil out of there, put five quarts of 5w30 in, slap a Motorcraft filter on her, and that's as good as you can get. Make sure you share this picture for your loved mates, families, community via your social networking such as facebook, google plus, twitter, pinterest, or other bookmarking sites. Anybody else ever hear of this problem? Appeared to be good gas. Yes I cleaned the pick up tube out was clogged it's definitely the lifters not the timing chain for sure dumped out the 5w20 and thru in some used 3k miles 5w30 didn't change the filter just to see what happened with putting the right weight in and to get the mmo and atf mix out so I can flush it didn't have the lifter tick at first but soon after it started oil is getting up to the cam oilers good yes I know the dash gage may not be correct but it does seem to at least be working right idk so flush oil change with filter and I'm just going to drive it sick of working on it wait. If you have any details on gaining access to those relays, it would be very halpful.
I also do the same thing with the injectors to be sure all six are spraying. Be careful, because over-filling can ruin a transmission, too. The repair is now complete. Will find out on Monday Trying to attenuate my personal hope amplifier that is not a tranny ---- We will all be Fine in O9. It'll start if you try long enough and but most the time it only cranks. Different engines require 2003 Ford Explorer serpentine belt replacement belts of different widths, thicknesses and lengths or circumference. I'm not sure if I would have to go that route.
Other than that the wheel spins freely, but also the brake pads seem a bit worn. Why does it have no response to throttle? Use a socket wrench with a matching socket the same size as the hex head bolt in the center of the tension pulley. I don't do transmissions so it looks like I am going to have to bend over and take it to the dealer in the morning. Retract disc brake enough to allow a nice free spin of the wheel. ? It was suggested that you replace the cam chain tensioners because they have an extremely high failure rate, and you have to pull the motor or trans to replace them. I was initially suspecting a lack of vacuum, but according to the manual with no vacuum the air flow should default to the defroster vents.
I have looked at the tires for signs of uneven wear and have checked tire pressure as well as the tightness of the lug nuts. And will it be okay to drive it with it smoking The water is normal, if it's just water. There's probably a main larger fuse underhood that goes on thru a block at firewall which can be a problem spot. My question is, is there anything that commonly goes bad on explorers that would cause it to misfire on 3 cylinders? The oil filter is smaller because someone probably took it to a cheap oil change place. Tired driving it again today and it slams into gear and sometimes slips.
Find the tension pulley located at the bottom of the motor. The half shaft joints cv could be doing this but are symptomatic and worse when turning or with load - usually. There's several youtube videos that are helpful. I attempted to drive it and it's top speed was about 10 mph and would die shortly after taking off. Some times when I have this prob I take 6 spark plugs lay them on the eng and crank and watch to be sure all plugs are fireing. It could be the other side translating the noise and feel and fooling you.
Tire is about 7% bigger so it make sense. Checked fuel pressure 65-70 psi at rail, has spark, has 150- 135 psi compression at all cylinders. One of the explorers had aftermarket rims with a different backspacing though. It died on road and has never re-started. It is powered by fuse f2.

Attach the socket and set the direction to tighten the same direction the spring action allows the pulley to move. Computer and injectors may be the primary parts you need from your rig. Does anyone know it this is possible with the Explorer? If they fail it usually makes the motor not wort h fixing.
Go look up viscosity vs temp charts Get fresh oil and new filter, run it for a bit and see how that goes. While it's a minor annoyance compared to transmission failure, ironically the crack usually goes right through the Ford logo. When I want to use the defrost only, it blows on the floor more than the upper vents and it takes forever to clear the windows. It will flash a nemeric code say 14 flashes, and a pause. This is a common problem with failed chain guides that disintegrate and fall into the pan happened to me. The oil filter is smaller because someone probably took it to a cheap oil change place.
