They will only go on one way, the hole on the the hood lift is larger at one end. just match up the hole size to the bracket on the hood and pop it on.

How can i replace the hood lift supprt on a 1998 ford explorer?


This shows you how to take the hood off, the hinges, I am not sure how to replace those since my online resources doesn't cover that portion of body work. The diagram seems to show that the hinge goes into the firewall, so if you want you might have to cut into the firewall, but this is more of a salvage yard procedure.

I would look at the hood lift support more closely to see if you can indeed replace it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Exploded view of the hood-to-hinge mounting 85550005.gif
NOTE: It is highly recommended that you have at least one assistant helping during this operation.
  1. Open the hood.
  2. Matchmark the hood-to-hinge position.
  3. Disconnect any electrical wire harness plugs.
  4. Have you're assistant(s) support the weight of the hood.
  5. Remove the hood-to-hinge bolts and lift the hood off of the hinges.
  6. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Loosely install the hood and align the matchmarks. Tighten the bolts securely. Before removing the hood, matchmark the hood hinge to the hood 89680p03.jpg
    If equipped, disconnect the hood light wire harness plug . . . 89680p04.jpg
    . . . along with any ground straps 89680p05.jpg
    While an assistant holds the hood, remove the hinge-to-hood attaching bolts 89680p06.jpg

Transmission install


Yes, typically the torque converter needs to be rotated and pressed towards the transmission, or serious damage will result. In essence the converter should be able to clear the flywheel during trans mounting. The converter needs to be rotated, lifted, jiggled, etc, to line up splines and the pump.

My flashers work on my 1998 explorer, but the turn signal stops after a couple of blinks.


i would think the multi function switch is bad. if you move the lever slightly, do the turn signals start flashing again? does it happen for both left and right signals? perhaps the connector on the switch has become loose. to inspect the switch, remove the ignition lock cylinder. on the underside of the steering column, there is a hole to access the pin to remove the cylinder. insert the key and turn to the on position. using an 1/8" punch or equivalent tool, insert it into the hole. depress the pin, and pull the cylinder out. to re-install, depress the pin and turn the key to the run position. install the cylinder ensuring it is completrly seated. turn the key to the off position. remove the steering column covers. access screws from the underside of he column. use a phillips screwdriver.
disconnect negative battery cable and wait 2 minutes before starting procedure to disarm airbag

BUT FIRST TRY REPLACING THE FLASHER UNIT
it is located to the right of the steering column under the dash.

Serpentine belt installation on an 1998 ford ZX2 escort


If there is no diagram on the underside of your hood, or around the engine compartment, just wrap it around the crankshaft, and work your way around the pulleys, going flats to flats, ribs to ribs. There may be a couple of combinations, but you'll get it.

Hood won't open when i pull the hood lift, How can I open it manually?


Your hood is just stuck. You'll need the help of a friend. One person must pry up the hood with their fingers while the other keeps the hood lift lever pulled. Once you get the hood open, I highly recommend "adjusting" the U-shaped striker on the underside of the hood (it's painted body color. Do not mess with the black painted safety latch lever!). On this car model, it has a tendency to bend toward the passenger side over time, causing the sticking hood problem. It's nothing several whacks with a hammer can't fix though to restore it to its original position. Have someone brace the hood (i.e., push the hood toward the passenger side) while you bang the striker back toward the driver's side. It won't need to move far, so check the hood opening operation frequently to see if you've moved the striker far enough back towards the driver's side for it to function normally again. Also, be sure to lubricate the hood latch with some WD-40 or something similar. It will help keep the internal parts of the latch moving and make it easier for your hood to pop up when you pull the hood lift lever.
