Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

My 1993 Ford Explorer seems to be running hot. Yesterday, several components of the a/c system were replaced because they had crashed. It was also drained, vaccuumed and recharged. Could these things have anything to do with each other?

Is the engine overheating? or running too hot? If it is the engine itself, then i would have to say it is most likely a problem with your cooling system, it may be the thermostat is stuck or has gone bad, start the vehicle, and get it warming up, once it is warmed up carefuly feel the radiator hose that goes into the thermostat houseing, and leaveing the thermostat houseing, if it is not warm on both hoses, then you have a stuck thermostat, if it is warm on both hoses, then you need to check to see if you have a collapsed hose somewhere, if not, then it is something more serious, also check your oil to make sure it is brown or black in color, if it is milky color then you have a blown head gasket, or a cracked you realy need to go over the cooling system real good and eliminate one thing at a time till you find the exact cause...........hope this helps. if you have more information that may help me find your problem, hit me back...............

I have a 2001 ford explorer 2wd 4.0L and it has been running hot. Yesterday I replaced the thermostat and gasket. The housing unit and hoses have no damage but the truck is still running hot. What could it...

I would have suspected the same, replacing the thermostat which would be the easiest fix. Next would be the waterpump. It's a pretty easy job and you'll find several step by step videos online if you need the help. Worst case would be a bad intake or head gasket. In the case of my wife's chevy venture, the 3.4L chevy is know for that issue. Good Luck

I have a 1993 Ford Explorer that goes into high idle when I put in gear. It does this when the engine is hot or cold.

On some cars there's a speed sensor on the clutch or transmission. That might cause an idle problem.

I'm no expert but when you turn key to run position, this turns the fuel pump on if the pump is faulty i would think it would blow the fuse also. Or its your theory a short in the ignition system wiring.

My 1998 Ford Explorer runs rough under hard acceleration

New plugs and wires?

Double check to make sure that you've got the routing and firing order right... if you have 2 switched, the car may still idle well but then pop and sputter on harder acceleration.

The next step would be to run some "Complete Fuel System Cleaner"... If that's the problem, you should see results within 20 miles or so.

A/C ford explorer 1993

Whe you retrofitted the system to r134a ,did you subtract the amount from r12 to r134a. The system will hold less r134a than r12. It is roughly four oz less than r12.
