Question about 1992 Ford Explorer
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.

You should contact Ford before thinking to start a class action, did you do that?
