1995 Ford Explorer ProblemsPlastic Intake Manifold May Crack Causing Coolant Leak
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.
The intake manifold O-ring gaskets commonly leak, causing stalling and poor idle quality; the Check Engine Light will illuminate.
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.

Ford has recalled certain 1995-1997 Explorer and 1997 Mercury Mountaineer vehicles because the sway bar links could fracture. If one or both sway bar links fracture, vehicle stability is affected, which can cause handling issues. Dealers will replace both sway bar links with revised parts.
Ford has recalled Firestone Wilderness AT and Radial ATX tires installed on multiple lines of Ford trucks from 1991 to 2000.
