I have a 2000 explorer sport. I have been having problems engaging into drive. Tonight I could not get to engage into drive at all. Have reverse no problems. What could be wrong? The transfer case or the transmission
Just blinks on and off it started couple days ago
what kinds of a tool/tools r needed 2 replace a fuel filter????
I have 2000 explorer with (after research im guessing is a 5r55e trans) about a week ago drive and reverse went with the motor revving high and you would move in reverse slowly with high revs but had enough to back up my inclined driveway. 1 & 2 worked perfectly fine for takeoff and turning on the o/d off button I was able to shift into drive once going...I could even turn o/d back on once I got to about 55 and it would drive fine. That worked for about 5 days and then while driving all gears went away and now nothing. I've searched and searched but cant find a clear answer as to what it may be (and I know its hard to diagnose over the net) but it seems like a very common issue with not alot of posted solutions. I assumed it was an internal tranny issue and started the process to remove it tonight and got to the transfer case being ready to drop out. First I dropped the trans pan and the oil was burnt (my fault) but there was not one metal shaving in there, only black material on perhaps the magnet which I took to be normal wearing clutch material? Tested resistance on all solenoids and all shift solenoids as well as EPC and TCC were within spec. Obviously I dont have the trans out yet but I am just asking for any and all thoughts and direction someone can provide as possible issues. I didnt know if it were possible that some internal gear could have broken but I would think I would see some metal and aside from the input shaft being snapped how could I lose all gears. I am no tranny expert so thanks in advance for any help.
Checked the oil, didn't register. Added a couple od quarts, didn't register. Added another, didn't register. added up to 5 quarts, still didn't register. The oil pressure guage showed pressure at mid range before adding any oil and after adding 5 quarts. Ran fine and didn't smoke after adding the quarts. Can't figure out how much oil I have or how to get it to read on the stick. 2000 Ford Explorer Limited, 130,000 miles
How long have you had this problem? Just noticed it over the weekend.
The car had a new battery put in two weeks ago due to starting issues. But it now randomly won't start and a buzzing sound comes from almost like the dashboard. Youtube suggests an electrical relay issue. Any input would be very welcome. This is for a college student away and dealing with her first mechanical issue.
How long have you had this problem? Two days
My cruise stopped working
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Na
How long have you had this problem? Week

Just changed the hose the thermostat housing the thermostat the belt and put new coolant in... Still didn't help... Could it be the waterpump????
But when it goes n drive it changes good and it don't slip what could itb
I used an air compressor to clean the dirt and debris from the engine now my truck makes a loud clicking/banging noise underneath the truck in the rear by the exhaust.
drivers controls are not working nor each door controls work on any doors so windows can go down or up.
So I recently got towed..he asked if it was AWD..I specifically told him it was..he put it on dolly with 2 front tires lifted..we drove a few miles and heard loud noise and I turned around and it was smoking..I guess from my bck tires? He then got out and put my my truck on 4 wheels lifted. I thought nothing of it even though but one day my od light kept blinking entire stopped next day..then I notice I can't drive over 55mph on freeway without shaking. Now it can't drive on freeway at all ..when I drove 40mph on freeway it kept going from side to side..I can't drive past 25- 30mph now..I just parked it in driveway before it gets any worse..I tried to take to shop..spent over $700 in total had tie rods replacement but car still the same. Could that tow damaged my rear end ? I don't know what's exactly wrong with my truck.
Took oil pan off there where plastic pieces in the pan no metal. the pieces are cloging the feed my question are these the cam guides they talk about and if so is it worth fixing and do I need to replace them and how
