Once water gets into the piston bore of the block, it is very serious.
You could have a cracked block or a bent connecting rod....
Driving with a bent rod will turn very bad.
When they are replacing the head gaskets, they should check the length of piston travel to top dead center on each piston/cylinder.

If you have already replaced the head gasket and it's running rough, it could be caused by a bent push rod (connects the crankshaft to the bottom of the piston)
This would make it run rough and will fail sooner than you think.

How do I replace the hub assy on a 2004 ford explorer AWD?


Hi,
I was referring to the Haynes Repair Manual #36025, Ford Explorer 2002-2006, Chapter 10, "Hub and bearing assembly (rear) replacement": Due to the special tools and expertise required to press the hub and bearing from the rear knuckle, this job should be left to a professional mechanic. However, the knuckle may be removed and taken to an automotive machine shop or other qualified repair facility equipped with the necessary tools.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My 2002 Ford Explorer wont crank!


I'm assuming the coilpack got wet!! Check if there is any power to the coil before changing. If thats fine, replace the coil. If there is no power, check your electrical circuit for the coil. Hopefully this helps
