Question about 1993 Ford Explorer Limited

1 Answer

I hear what sounds like dry gears

It has slowly been getting louder over the past 2 weeks and when I am going down a hill and take my foot off the gas it is really loud. I had the transmission rebuilt 3 years ago and the fluid is good in it so I am hoping its not that. There are no clunky noises and nothing is slipping

    It sounds like the noise is coming from directly under the seats not front or back. does that make sense?

Put it on a hoist and run it to see where the sound is.
maybe it is the differential

What causes Soltice to rev up and down shift when climbing hill but loose speed


That is the way gears in cars work. When you go up hill, the car needs more gas, so you put your foot down, kick down comes into play and the gearbox chooses one gear lower, for more engine revs and lower speed you get more torque to climb the hill.

Get the car tuned up, you might have failing sensors or ignition problems causing a general loss of power that is needing kick down on hills.

Thank you but that sound i was referring to sounds like the motor rattling when i hit the gas a the stop sign then it goes away in park i can hit the gas a never hear it


It very well could be an internal engine noise. Make sure the oil level is full. You can put the vehicle in gear and while holding your foot on the brake, apply the gas. If it is internal, the noise will most likely be there. If it is a high mileage engine, it could be a rod/crank bearing starting to go and will eventually get louder and more frequent. Most auto repair shops will have a mechanic listen to the noise and advise free of charge

Losing power going up hills


sounds pretty normal. what speed do you try out the passing gear? anything above 35-45 mph and it will feel like neutral. Passing gear is actually only 1st gear. When you press down the pedal, it forces the transmisson to shift into low gear.

My 98 GMC Jimmy accelerates really slowly but once past 40km/h it takes off fine and handles dropping gears going up hills fine. What would it be? Would it be my torque converter?


Sounds like theres no 1st gear. Have you put the shifter in 1 and seen if it went, if so try 2-3 if it still accelerates slowly its probally stuck in 1st or 2nd gear, when it goes in to the 3 rd gear it will accelerate normally, also in 4th (OverDrive)

First gear


The following test is very dangerous. Do not try this if you are going to let the brake go at anytime. YOU MUST HOLD THE BRAKE DOWN WITH YOUR LEFT FOOT 100% OF THE TIME.

OK. Open the hood and turn on the car. Have an assistant stand to the SIDE OF THE ENGINE NOT IN FRONT OF THE CAR. Next, put your foot firmly on the brake with one foot and your second foot on the gas simultaneaouly. Put in gear iff the brake is all the way down. now torque the motor by slowly giving it gas, while you brake NEVER IS UNDONE. Your assitant is looking at you engine to see if it is moving forward and backward erratically. Now torque in reverse gear.

Hold the brake 100% of the time. With the seond foot torque (giving gas) in reverse. You assistant is looking to see if the engine moves erratically.

It sounds like you have a broken engine mount. If a Toyota, there is a "dogbone" looking mount on top of the engine in front of the passenger in the engine compartment. Notice it does not happen when you run lightly, but it noisey when torqued.

Loses power on steep grade


Sounds like you need a clutch replacement.

Try this. Go somplace where there are no cars, and no possibility of running into anything. Stop the car. Set the park brake. With the engine running, put the vehicle in 1st gear. Hold the foot brake pedal, and give it gas, and let out the clutch slowly.
If the engine does not stall real quick, the clutch disc is bad.

Automatic transmission shifting problems


20 year old vacuum hoses are done. Replace all you can. The little plastic ones too. They control everything, transmission, computer, fuel, brakes, everything.

Try rotating tires. If it gets better or worse, its probably the tires.
