has happened mostly when vehicle has been drive for 20 minor more

I ran out of gas and now it won't start

Bought the ford explorer 2001 used , runs fine , after a few days got in car turned key , nothing happened . Jumped across the solenoid and it starts and runs fine . Still can't start it with the key.

O/D was working, after it stopped engaging noticed the squeaking noise. If fluid is low where would it go? Is it something I can do myself or have a mechanic do?

2000 Ford explorer
V-8 engine. Heater was blowing cold about 2 weeks. I took it to my usual mechanic he thought it may be a bubble in the line. told me to fill it wit antifreeze and drive it- revving it to see if that would take care of the bubble. I drove it for almost a week back and forth to work. On Thurs April 7th I noticed the heat gauge was going up to hot. So I went and got more antifreeze and a new radiator top (thinking that that it may have been old) and drove it home. Husband took it out on the highway next day and it was smoking ans antifreeze spilling out. Took it to mechanic 4/10 and he thought it was the water pump. On 4/12 he let me know it was the timing cover that was leaking and he didn't have the tools to fix it.

After 1 hour. Of driving the truck the transmission stops working

Runs good over drive light blinks then stops blinking runs great happens sometime

It starts and drive but these warning lights are on

it will stay smooth at hywy speeds then when u come into slower speeds 50% of the time it will start this jerking feel .if its doing it at 20-30 ill engage 4x4 it stops.until i disengage it .also has a clunk when ill make a left turn at times dont know if they could be related or not.

My engine will not turn over, I've replaced almost everything fuel related from fuel pump, fuel injectors, and fuel filter however any time I try and turn the key it still won't turn over. I'm about to check the fuel pressure and I've been told about the ignition coil pack possibly being bad, however I'm still not certain on why it might not be working. I've tried running a diagnostic on it but I was told since the engine (which still is a 4.0 overhead valve) has a different vin from the explorer itself that it's unable to run a diagnostic on the engine.

starts on first crank

Seems like the neddle is alittle above middle....dont want it to overheat...

It is locking up and won't drive. It has a grinding noise and the right front tire locks sometimes. I've changed the front drive axles, rotors, and hubs on both sides. Break pads are all in good shape. In the beginning when this was happening I powered through it there was some grinding and a pop noise but it took off and I've been able to drive it till now. That's been a few months. It will drive but only in idle speed.
