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.

Cam and crankshaft not synchronized. But live data says it is. What caused this

When it's cold, transmission slips and there is no dipstick to check it.

Last few months loud metalic noise like brake caliper or something like it is loose and catching the wheel during rotation and is bangingaround . It has become worse and more freaquent but brakes work fine although the noise stops when brakes are applied then intermitantly starts again

Door was left ajar during rain. Since then having problems with starting vehicle. Dash goes absolutely crazy. Gauges flipping back and forth, not starting. Then when it sits for awhile it might start and then again it might not. At any given time this happens.

The last section of the tail pipe ia missing and we have. A 94 just sitting here. Can i use the tailpipe from the 9r


Daytime running lights have quit working. Would it be a module? Where is it located?

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

I have a 2002
Ford Explorer sport trac 4.0l
While driving home the check engine light started flashing and felt the truck acting sluggish, then it shut off in the middle of a hill (going up).
I tried to restart and it was unsuccessful. Pulled a P0301 for a #1cylinder miss fire. Only code in system. Cranks over, has spark - no start
I am checking the fuel pressure. With the key on engine off the pressures goes up to 80 psi and in a second it looses all pressure. My question is the pressure shouldn't drop that fast should it?

how many hours does it call for

I am working on a 1999 Ford Exploder with a charging problem. The alternator is good, the battery is good, the light comes on, the fuses are all good. I wonder if someone can tell me what the resistance is across the voltmeter on the dash. The only other thong in the circuit is the wire that goes to the PCM. Does the PCM have anything to do with the charging system?? Thank you in advance.

Overdrive is not working at 60 mph in doing 3000rpms overdrive button light turns on off but will not shift into od reason it got low on fluid I've change the wiring inside and the input sensor inside trany, replaced converter, trany was rebuit 6months ago cant afford to rebuild it again is there some advise that might help me thank codes are shown

It still did not work. Checked all fuses and relays and were good.What could the problem?

I hear a clicking noise and cold air blows out when i turn the heat on.

They were unable to program new fob. Had a locksmith open car. Alarm went off. They told us they were locked out of system and that we needed a new BMc module. Expensive. Is this normal or did they do something wrong

Trying to determine if it needs a new fuel pump or a fuel relay what is the best way to go about diagnosing that

I have dual zone heating/cooling. Driver's side blows hot air, but passenger side, just cold. Car has about 105,000. What could be issue & how much labor involved to fix?

When light switch is turned on no light will come on.

the 4x4 high light comes on flashes 3 to 8 times also. I have flushed the transfer case and rear end and trany. replaced all new fluid and grease.

I got this explorer a few weeks ago and I replaced the battery and alternater and battery cables and the check charging system is dinging like crazy but the battery stays charged the lights dont dim and the gauge stays right where it should be I can't figure out why I took it to the dealership and it all tests normal I have no idea whats going on

the dome light, windows, and wipers work at times and do not work at times.

It began 03/09/2017

If I drive it every day for awhile it will start the next morning but if sits for about 12hours it's got to be jump start I've been unhooking my battery post but it is Waring my terminals out its been a issue I'd like to get fix thanks.

My 2003 explorer, 4 wd, 6 cyl, stalled and will not crank at all. The battery seems to have power. The headlights, cluster lights and radio come on. When i try and start it...nothing. the mileage lights go out. No clicking...just nothing. I tried to clean and tighten the battery cables. Even tried to replace the ground cable. Any advice?

Does it in all types of weather doesn't matter what the temperature is

Looking to buy used. Owner says engine solid but transmission skips in higher gear range. Is that a maintenance service or a bad tranny about to die?

Can't get it back right it will crank up and run but not right
