    Yes. The strange thing is that once it starts it runs like a dream. Now it turns over but doesn't want to start. When the car is left in strong sunlight it sounds more likely to start. Obviously something is expanding. Wondered if it might be the fuel pump that's faulty. Don't know the fuel pressure

Dont know whats size or style i need to remove the sensor from the tranny. any one know?

Sensors on outside of trans case?
One bolt I assume?
90% of all vehicle work, is a metric size.

Why are you changing a sensor?

If it wasn't tested,do not change it

By test,I mean look at data with a
professional scan tool or put a scope
on it.

Codes won't tell you to replace it

1999 ford explorer idles from low to high and shuts off when slowing down. Seems to do this more when hot outside.

I had a 2000 ford explorer that was doing the same thing. There is a vacuum line at the front of the engine on top that has 90 degree or elbow shape to it, it is only about 3 to 4 inches long and about as big around as a dime, if that line has even the smallest pin hole or crack in it it will idle up and down and sometimes die while at a stop. That vacuum line I think is right under your top radiator hose. Try that and see if that is your problem.

start by checking inside the rear storage compartments in the cargo area, behind any in-vehicle spare, or behind any "carpeting". it looks like a natural gas valve, somewhat.

My 2003 Explorer overheats when I turn the A/C on.

Q: Temp starts to climb by how much? If the vehicle interior is hot"over 90" , keep in mind the heat in the vehicle is being absorbed by the a/c and carrued out to the "condensor" in front of the engine radiator. Engine temp should be expected to climb somewhat. As the interior cools down the less heat is taken to the font and forced through the engine radiator. It should peak out ,then staer deopping or stabilize. On initial entry of vehicle on hot days it would help to open the windows for a mile or so to purge excessive heat from passenger compartmentw/AC OFF. OUTSIDE CAN BE 90 AND THE INTERIOR OF A CLOSED UP VEHICLE CAN CLIMB TO 120 DEGREES + mID 80'S IS HANDLED WITH GREATER EASE FOR A COMBINATION OF TECHNICAL REASONS OF WHICH WOULD BORE YOU.It sounds like all is well so be cool(pun) and don't waist money chasing a ghost. Happy trails. Oh, The auxillary fan is good to speeds up to 35 mph. Above 35 the forced air from the vehcle speed does the fans job.

1998 Ford Explorer sport 4.0L 4x2 PCV Valve Location

the pcv is located on the rear(firewall) of the drivers side valve cover.turn counterclockwise and pull to remove be careful there are 2 small tabs inside the pcv hole in the valve cover(can feel with small finger) this is to hold valve in place so it wont leak.if you have a oil leak at the pcv a quick fix is to put a small amount of silicone around the pcv o-ring and install.wait hours for silicone to set up.
