Question about 1992 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

Explorer Manual Transmissions

My 92 Ford Explorer XLT has the five-speed manual transmission. The vehicle has 43,000 miles on it and the transmission has melted down entirely. All service has been done as prescribed, fluid levels checked and topped every 2500-3000 miles. The dealer tells me that the transmission has a thin rubber "tower seal" that has a tendency to dry out (particularly in our Colorado climate) resulting in the sudden and catastrophic loss of fluid. If you are driving at the time (as I was on I-70 into the mountains), the result is total destruction of the transmission. I have two questions: 1) has anyone else with a Ford Explorer had a similar experience or any other problem with the manual transmission? 2) are there any other newsgroups or sites that discuss these issues? I am considering initiating a class action or taking other legal steps against Ford for defective design of the manual transmission. If you are interested or know of others who have had problems, please email me at Thanks. Brian Stockmar Denver, Colorado i have a 93 just replaced the trany because it had no 1st or rev. put a junkyard tranny in it and it worked for 50ft now it has no rev could this be a t-case problem its not the clutch plate

Is there anyway to flat tow my 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT. with no 4 wheel drive?


Hello Poca Buchanan,

WRONG.

Your "rental" FOLKs do NOT know of what they speak.

Your owners manual... Pages 192 & 246 both confirm... that your vehicle can be towed... and the SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES.

Drive wheels can only be towed in EMERGENCIES...
NOT to exceed 35 miles per hour...
Not to exceed 50 miles...!!


~~
If the drive wheels are off the ground... REGULAR TOWING PRECAUTIONS SHOULD APPLY.

(lets say a rear wheel drive... if the REAR WHEELS are on a carrier... you should be all PEACHES (reverse tow)).


If you cannot limit your distance or speed... and drive wheels are ON-THE GROUND...

Your DRIVE SHAFTS should be removed to protect the transfer case and/or transmission (by an AUTHORIZED FORD TECHNICIAN).


If you require assistance or clarification on Ford Motor Company policies or procedures, please contact the Ford Customer Relationship
Center at 1-800-392-3673 (FORD)

Hope this helps!!
