Charging system I have a 2000 ford explorer xlt. 4.0 SOHC v6. I put a new alternator in it twice and a new battery. The old alternator tested bad and 2nd alternator tested good but still wont charge battery or run the truck. with new battery it ran for half the day 40 miles of start and stopping then is dead again. The voltage gage was barely above the L mark when new battery and alternator was put in.

    Just had to have my 2003 Ford Explorer jumped. And my battery gage slowly went down to the bottom, and ABS light turned on along with the battery light. Battery one year old. Is it the alternator?

Change your battery cables and check all wires on the alternator for loose connections, expecially the grounds.

On my 1998 v6 explorer, i had my alternator rebuilt twice, have bought a brand new one, which is still on there, replaced the battery with a new one. in-line fuse from alternator to battery is good. system...


Most charging circuits are in two sections, the section that charges the battery and the section that "turns on" the alternator when the engine starts. Your alternator has a built in regulator which is powered by a 15 amp fuse and a 7.5 amp fuse that also handles the gauge on the dash.
These circuits would need to be checked with a meter.

How do i replace the pcv valve on a 2000 explorer xlt v6 sohc?


On the passenger side of the intake manifold, coming off the bottom about the center of the engine front to back, you'll feel a hose that comes off a nipple. That hose makes a 90 degree bend and goes around to the rear of the motor. Where that hose meets the Y-connector from the other side of the intake you'll find the PCV valve. It's almost impossible to see it with the hood installed, and even tougher to reach it.
