Ford Explorer Sport Trac Problems

Plastic Intake Manifold May Crack Causing Coolant Leak

The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.

Wheel bearing faliure

Replace the worn wheel bearings.

Heater Stuck on Hottest Setting Due to Broken Heater Blend Door

A failed heater blend door or actuator can cause the temperature control for the HVAC system to stop working. A clicking sound from the dash area would commonly indicate an actuator fault. If the heater gets stuck on the hottest setting, the heater blend door may be broken requiring replacement of the heater box to repair the issue.

Ford and Mercury Recall 2010 Models for Improper Seat Back Retention Requirements

Ford has recalled certain 2010 model year Ford Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac, Fusion, and Fusion Hybrid vehicles along with Mercury Mountaineer, Milan, and Milan Hybrid vehicles for an issue with the front seat backs equipped with manual recliner mechanisms. In the event of a crash, the seat back and head restraint may move rearward, increasing the risk of injury. This is due to incorrect specification in the design of the gear plate teeth on the seat back recliner. Dealers will replace the manual recliners free of charge.

Steering Gear Attachment Bolts May Break

11 vehicles are being recalled because the two bolts attaching the steering gear to the frame may have been overtightened. As a result, one or both bolts could break and cause the steering gear to become loose, reducing steering effectiveness and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering gear mounting bolts and nuts. This recall is expected to begin on April 27, 2007. The Ford recall number is 07S52.

Ford Explorer Sport Trac Reviews

Great truck (75,000 miles) with one big exception. Three times, in as many months,after parking it has failed to start. First diagnosis "faulty alarm" ($ 600.00) Next diagnosis "bad fuel pump" This is costing me $ 720.00. After this I'm not sure what to do if the problem continues...
We bought ours about a year and a half ago with less than 25,000 miles on it. It was great until a couple of months ago while my husband was driving on the freeway my foot touched something under the dash on the passenger side and it shut down the whole vehicle. We were told there is a button above where my foot touched to reset it. Problem is we almost died because of this. We traded it in.
got a 2007 used sport trac..wheel bearing is gone bad tapping on left side of engine..what is next?
