Question about Cars & Trucks

Creaking suspension My 2000 Ford Explorer (Eddie Bauer - 8 cylinder) has squeaky suspension. Sometimes it doesn/t squeak at all and other times it is constant. I/ve been told the joints were factory-sealed and cannot be greased/doped. What parts can be replaced/repaired to eliminate this squeaking?

SOURCE: Squeaky Rear suspension

I had the same problem. I had the control arms repaced in the back when my car was still under warranty. See if a mechanic can take a look at it to be sure.

That's where I'd go first. check with driveline unloaded (neutral with wheels off the ground.)

SOURCE: Squeaky Door....embarrasing!

1: White Lithium Grease
2: Silicone Grease

Either will work just as well, though lithium may be easier to find at the local auto-parts store...and a bit cheaper.
* They silicone comes in a spray which makes it easier to get to the hinges.

In a pinch, a can of Liquid Wrench will cure the noise, but it doesn't offer the long-term benefits of grease.

** There are 2 sets of hinges, upper and lower...and be sure to get the rollers on the guide arms.

What codes P0304 & P0308 ? This just means the PCM detected a misfire on those cylinders .an could be a few different things !
What ignition type does your vehicle have coil on plug or a coil pack with 8 plug wire towers ? If you have coil on plug ignition there are two wires going to the coils , one has battery + an the other is control from PCM . Check power first with volt meter or test light . Or use a spark tester on those two cylinders . No Spark Testing control testing

Can the 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer be lubricated?


I'm guessing by the year that you have pretty high mileage on your SUV. If that is the case then you will probably need to rebuild front end. that should take care of the problem. Good luck.
