Sticking valve 2001 ford explorer sport

My daughter wants to buy the above vehicle from its original owner; he says it has a sticking valve he is planning on having fixed. what does this mean for the big picture? is this something that can be fixed and then we are done with it or does it indicate a more serious engine or transmission problem or a continuous need to be fixed. he also said that he discovered the sticking valve when traveling about 50 miles to a nearby city and it started "skipping." car has 79,000 miles and is in gorgeous shape. if i get her this car, i can't afford major repairs after. thanks, keg

My $.02, also check the oil stick, is the oil black, or clean? Pull the air filter,, does it look reasonably clean? Have a look at the brake fluid resovours,, are they topped up and fluid clear? Pop the rad cap off,, what's the coolant look like? If it has an oily or milky film? A stickin valve could be that the seller hasn't changed the oil sinse HE bought it. This is just an add on to angelo63's pointers, all are good and valid!

It dosnt sound like a stickey valve if you have a good mechanic have him check it over small cost for reassurance

if you want to do it tour self road test car see what water temp is like and oil pressure take the car for a good run on the highway give it a bit of pedal on the gas to see what the gearbox respond like or if the engine miss fires on high rpm when you get back to the owner house park it on a clean bit off concrete and turn the car off check the engine oil dip stick for any sighns of water or a cremy look to it thsts suggest hesd gasket no if the car has been sitting for 5 or 10 minutes check under the front of the car for oil leaks or water leaks also see if the oil gauge drops low when the car is hot

this is all i can help you there is no way you can 100% rate a car things wear out

My horn and code entry does not work on my 2001 Ford Explorer sport Trac. Where is the fuse if there is one,or how do I fix this


horn fuse should be under the dash. you may also want to check relays under the hood. They are in a block box labeled relays. Check under the dash first. There should be a diagram for the fuses in the owners manual or located near the fuse panel. The fuse block should be up above the brake

Where is the starter on a 2001 Ford Explorer?


Once you crawl under it, it will be pretty obvious. It's on the underside of the car, hugs the engine block and is butted up against the transmission. If you are unfamiliar with what a starter looks like here is a link. 2001 Ford Explorer Starter
