Ford Explorer QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.
thanks for any info
if the timing chain or the tentioner was bad the chain would rattle all the time why only when the engine warms up
I have no power on any Windows but the sunroof works.

I called O'Reillys and they asked if it was aftermarket or Factory? I need to know which one it is and will I need a special tool to put them on. I need them on both sides. Thank you.
Butters power to everything else except for the power locks and the license plate lights thank you for your time Nicholas
It's a awd, Eddie bower edition 97' Ford explorer. I had Les Schwab check the alignment and they found that the front differential is messed up. what would the cost to repair that be?
I did fill tank I forgot to add.I know all signs point to head gasket. I'm hesitant to put a gasket sealer and just bought the gasket.I don't need more problames I figured if I add sealer and it stops I figured it out but then I've got shit clogged in heads and ports.idk that seafoam has ever moved along a ticking time bomb but it sure seems to have.I'm almost positive its the head gasket.but can't hurt to get feed back.I'll be pulling head tomorrow.
After running the vehicle for about 10 minutes it started to pop and knock the white smoke coming from the engine compartment and knocking made me shut vehicle down following morning while it was cold I started it up and it ran fantastic for approximately 10 15 minutes the same scenario occurred knocking white Smoke stalling out pressure gauge bouncing all over the place I'm wondering if adding seafoam to an old vehicle like that push the problem along a lot faster than expected.I did add seafoam due to the trucks rough running.I've used seafoam 100 X never had this problame.I changed oil thinking I thinned it out with S.F but no such luck..

I'm looking at buying a friends explorer. She said these lights flash but unsure why and gears change fine. If its gear box/trans, for $800, could it be a worth while investment??
apparently my timing chain has broken and estimated 20 hoiurs in labour to remove the engine to fix the small and easy part. alternative another engine. you would think this would be cheaper since there would be no replacing of parts?
The suv in question has over 211k miles. Owed by retired military vet so pretty much highway miles. Runs perfectly (no noise, no smell, no lights on) looks perfect inside and out.
I am wondering if it will go past 300k miles if I kept up with all the maintenance.
I just bought my SUV at the beginning of January 2016 its now the 4th of Feb. One week after purchase driving back & forth to work I have noticed a raddling noise when I crank up & drive. It shakes often when driving, but if i loosen off gas then push down on gas pedal its will go away for a few seconds maybe a minute or so. Also sometimes the car skips on its own. Like the SUV is accelerating on its own. I do know car needs top & bottom ball joints on left side (driver side of door) and a oil change. I don't believe ball joints is the problem under the hood. Help me please understand what's going on with my family (ONLY) transportation.
