Correction on a typo from my previous post today. There are currently NO leaks in the system and the AC cools fine. The system was checked and no leaks present from dye. However there is the compressor cycling issue when the car is in drive but not in park. Is this an electrical problem?

Last summer due to poor cooling I had my AC checked and the garage had replaced my receiver/dryer. Dye was added to the system and now leaks are present this year. However, I noticed during the winter when I had on the defroster, the compressor was cycling every 10 - 15 seconds as if low freon was in the system. Now that it is June I turned on the AC and the system works fine but the cycling is present. I noticed that when the truck is in park there is no cycling, but when in drive it cycles. Is this an electrical problem? What should be checked and replaced?

Where can I purchase one?
Two local FORD DEALER can not find a part number for it.

i was replacing the radiater on my sportrac and when installing it i cant seem to get the tranny coolant lines back on

had a radiator and thermostat housing leak was not overheating .I changed the thermostat housing and radiator and after adding coolant and letting it run and turning the heat on to bleed the system once it get to operating temp it says normal for 20 to 25 mins then the gauge goes to the hot level. i used full strength antifreeze to fill the system should i have used 50/50 instead

when i accelerate or decelerate my engine begins to shake. engine light is on and wondering what could be the cause?

if I take my foot off the gas its jerky again. Then recently I've had several instances where the truck seems to rev at a higher RPM and the temperature gage goes above the hot mark and my oil temp light comes on. I pull the car over, turn it off the temp immediately drops. I pull back onto road and it drives just fine. What on earth could be causing this? 88,000 miles on the odometer.

all lights, radio work. no problem indicated before it was turned off. could it be ignition?

we just turned it off and it wont run it will run on starting fluid

Is there any way to check the vin my 2001 ford explorer sport trac 4x4 which is 1fmzu77e71uc60794 and see if the tranny will fit which it is out of a 1999 explorer 4x4 and the vin number is 1fmzu34exxza48562

Long trips short trips sitting still

blend door actuator and that it needed to be replaced.
He said they would need my truck for about a week and it would cost around $500.
Where is the blend door actuator on a 2005 ford sport trac?
Also does this have anything to do with the OBDII system?

when im at highway speed i feel slight vibration or like hum what shoul d i look for

ruff idle and the code says # 2 misfire and the oil pressure gauge jumps back and forth to high and low when you put it in drive and reverse... what would be the cause?

Check engine light has been on for month. Drove truck to store and would not start when went to leave. AAA came, hit fuel tank with hammer while Husband started and it started right up. AAA said it was the fuel pump going bad. Described details to mechanic he said sounds like fuel pump. Do you agree? Do we need pump, injector and filter? When you get new pump do they automatically replace injector and filter?

Just purchsed a used 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac and the card with the Manufacturer's keyless entry code is not in it. The Used Car dealer did not have it either. The manual says it is on the computer module but does not say where that is located!

Changed speed switch what else is relevant to blower speed.

transmission is leaking

The trans cooler line runs under the radiator to a seperate cooler mounted in front of the radiator. Two rubber lines run down to a connection with the steel lines. The pin hole is just after the connection. I was thinking to entend the length of the rubber hose but, the question is, will it hold under normal operation?

So far I've changed out all plugs and coil packs for cylinders 4 and 8 because I retrieved codes P0304 and P0308 and P1000. My truck continues to throw P0304. I've also used an EXPENSIVE injector cleaner. What else can I do, Could you please help?

where is access to pannel

i crank and try to put it in gear the want move i keep hiting the break and move the stearing wheel and then i hear a cleck and then it move in to drive or or what ever. how do i fix it why doing this?

i did not hit anything to cause any problems, have replaced brakes and keep it aligned, about to replace tie rod ends as front drivers is loose. husband thinks it is cause i have drum brakes, but did not do this the first 6 years i owned, bought new.

passenger side blows only cold air, is this a valve problem or a damper problem, and what is the location of the damper and or valve ...Thanks IT"S Broken

Tried with motor running; in neutral, foot on the brake, turn wheel to right then left doesn't work either.

the reverse has gone out of the 2002 Ford Explorer Sports Trak

overnight the needle goes about 1/4 inch past the line below the C on the gauge. While running the vehicle all day it never goes past 1/4 inch above the C. Would this be a gauge issue or could it be a bad sensor?

Can see coolant leaking from what looks to be left of thermostat housing. Have check engine light and rough idle after engine warms up. Sometimes dies at idle. I was just going to replace thermostat when i saw the coolant coming from described area. Stopped until i find what other problems could potentially be. I have to use daily and was wondering if this a diy project in one day or extended expensive repair.

we have changed the thermostat and the switch and still the same problem when you turn the heat on it will not change over to the heater just runs the a/c . behind the glove box you can here the fan running but there is times that it will not blow anything into the truck as well no a/c or heat . the heater hoses are hot in and out

Just noted this problem last evening. All other lights OK
