Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

''possible car charging problem''

This is in regards to a 1998 mercury mystique v6. I need to know if i am having a possible charging problem.
My question is this>>>I can have my heater on full blast,with my stereo playing,with my high beams on,my bliker on and my rear defrost on.All at the same time without any problems. I can come out in the dead of winter in bone chilling temperatures and the car will start right up first try.I have a new battery and everything appears to be okay. If i apply my brakes in a regular way there is no problem. However if i am in a situation where i have to slam on my brakes suddenly i notice that my dash lights and headlights go dim and if my heater is on at the same time also it will stop blowing. Once i let off the brakes my dash and headlights get bright again and my heater kicks in again.
This only happens if i have to apply the brakes very hard.Other than that everything is working fine. Is this normal for these cars??? If not does anyone know what the problem is???
thanks..........................

Do you need to replace the timing belt when you change a water pump for a 1998 mercury mystique v6?


You don't have to replace it but you have to take the belt off to remove the water pump for the extra $30.00 i would recomend changing the belt too, unless the belt has been changed less then 20,000 miles ago .

I've got a 1998 Mercury Mystique with a 2.5L V6,the automatic tranny .Can I replace the automatic transmission with a manualtransmission? Thank you


Yeah you can but it won't be easy. I would check some salvage yards for one with a stick in it. That way you can find all the parts you will need. Not only do you need the trans, you will need clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, master cylinder, Clutch and brake pedals, cv shafts, mounts, shifters, shifter cables, and the computer, plus some other parts. I have done some of these conversions, they are not impossible. I have done this to a 2000 BMW 323. I can help you more if you want.

you can try a salvage yard that has a computer that will let you know of other cars that will interchange with yours and they may have one used that will work, but you should also be able to go to auto zone or napa and get a rubber tubing that can be high pressure fuse hose that will work on your car alot cheaper then $450.00
