We have replaced the front pinion seal twice now and still have it leaking from what appears to be that area. What is the BEST solution? Do we need to replace the crush sleeve and pinion nut and everything? My shade tree mechanic husband insists we can now solve the problem with a speedi sleeve (because a friend mentioned it), but I am tired of just throwing parts at the problem if it won't solve the problem. Doesn't Ford have a definitive solution for this problem?

My 2002 Ford Explorer has a shudder once in a while. The shudder feels like I have drifted onto some small turtles or hit some grating in the road. It happens when I am driving straight, lasts about 1-3 seconds, and happens maybe twice during a 20 minute drive. I notice it when I'm going 35-45 mph. It does not happen when turning, braking, or taking off.

What if you go to turn on the heater and it makes a real loud noise and blows out cold air? when it turned to cold air it does not make the noise. Its like in the flapper that switches it hot to cold.

I was driving my 1991 Ford Explorer XLT when I pressed the clutch in to shift into 5th gear it went to floor and it lost all pressure to it. After that I could not use the clutch to shift at all. What's the problem?

roar noise in my front right tire

We just replaced the mass flow air sensor and the purge flow solenoid in our 94 explorer. Before changing the mass flow air sensor the truck would run with it unpluged, but plugged in it skipped and spuddered real bad. The purge solenoid was broken on one of the vaccum hose ends, so that was replaced. It is still running rough with these changes. Not near as bad but still rough. Any suggestions?

gearshift bulb replacement

I have a 1994 Ford Explorer. It overheated and shut off. I noticed the coolant would keep boiling over inside the coolant resevoir once the engine started heating up. What could be causing this. Could it be a blown head gasket?

My 02' Exp Sport chugs bad when started and idles very rough, even after being shifted into gear. After a minute or so of driving, it runs perfectly fine with no other symptoms or illuminated dash light for engine service. Any ideas?

Problem just started. Oil pressure gauge shows no oil. Checking oil at dipstick shows it's full. Valves began clicking loudly. Do I need new oil pump or could it be something clogged. What's the cost of replacing the oil pump.

I just bought an '04 Ford Explorer and the gas mileage is only ten mpg. I was told it would be 15/20 city/highway. Highway mileage is 18-19. When I was at the dealership the salesman checked the codes and all were ok except one EVAP code. The check engine light is not on.

Front bumper is dented, front headlights is damaged on the inside and outside. Also the front driver side door makes noise when opening and closing.

What else can I do to fix my dash board lights if the problem is not the bulbs?
