SOURCE: How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

SOURCE: code P0442-evaporated emissions control system leak.what does this mean,and how do i fix this problem on my 1998 ford explorer.

Hi there:
P0442 - Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak)
This indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system.

Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

You likely won't notice any drivability problems.

A code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
Other small leak in EVAP system
Faulty vent o-ring seal

Possible Solutions: with a P0442, the most common repair is to:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

How to replace evaporator core & dryer in 96 ford explorer


This is NOT an easy project, and shouldn't be undertaken under the shade of a tree. You will need a refrigerant evacuation and recovery system (including a vacuum pump), and will need to remove the front casing of the air handler to get to the evaporator core. If the lines to the heater core are in the way, you will need to remove those (necessitating the partial draining of the engine coolant), and possibly removal of the hood so that you can lift the evaporator core from its housing. ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO TACKLE THIS?????

Does the receiver dryer have to be replaced when the evaporator core is


STOP---DO NOT REPLACE ANYTHING

Pay someone to continue from where you are

An a/c system is not something you throw parts at

You can't find a leak, but you know you have one.

No on the dryer-- if the system isn't left open & you seal
the dryer immediately

Heater hot/cold control knob doesn't work need to have the hot air.


Check the motor on the top of the heater plenum. It turns a shaft to shift the blender door which controls the input to this plenum either the heater core or the evaporator core (ac). You may find the motor is OK but the shaft (plastic) has broken and the blender door has to be replaced. This is a costly job that involves removing this plenum after removing the dash. A shortcut I found online was to cut a hole under the blender door and replace it through this opening. After replacing you can seal up the hole with epoxy. I cut three sides of a square hole leaving the back uncut. Pull down and the blender door can be removed. My problem was on a 1997 Explorer. _6.gif

      96 ranger the fan blows, but on hot setting, air is not hot


      If the fan works in all speeds but is not hot, it is most likely the heater core that is at fault.
