2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac ProblemsHeater Stuck on Hottest Setting Due to Broken Heater Blend Door
A failed heater blend door or actuator can cause the temperature control for the HVAC system to stop working. A clicking sound from the dash area would commonly indicate an actuator fault. If the heater gets stuck on the hottest setting, the heater blend door may be broken requiring replacement of the heater box to repair the issue.
The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.
A coolant leak may develop from the radiator. Ford has released and updated radiator and powertrain control module (PCM) software update to address this issue. The software update includes revised cooling fan operating parameters. Failure to complete both service procedures may result in repeated radiator failures.

When I shut off the air and slow down, the roar stops and air works. This is only at lower rpm. Last time the roar began, the temp gage peaked, but the engine was not hot. When I restarted, the roar stopped and the gage went to normal. Can anyone give me some advice as to where to begin?

2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac RecallsSteering Gear Attachment Bolts May Break
11 vehicles are being recalled because the two bolts attaching the steering gear to the frame may have been overtightened. As a result, one or both bolts could break and cause the steering gear to become loose, reducing steering effectiveness and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts and nuts. This recall is expected to begin on April 27, 2007. The Ford recall number is 07S52.
