If you are talking about cleaning the throttle body, Ford does not recommend cleaning it with any type of brake cleaner or carb cleaner, as it can cause damage to the throttle body. This is true- DONT spray anything into the throttle body! If it is dirty enough to need a light cleaning, youll have to use a dry, clean, lint free rag with NO chemicals on it to lightly wipe down the inside of the throttle body. Remove the air duct that leads into the throttle body and then hold the throttle butterfly valve open manually with your hand. Use the cloth to wipe everything down, then reassemble. DO THIS WITH THE VEHICLE COLD AND OFF!!! This is just about the best way to clean the throttle body, just be extra careful not to damage anything as they are sensitive.

Thanks for asking!

Is there anyway to flat tow my 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT. with no 4 wheel drive?


Hello Poca Buchanan,

WRONG.

Your "rental" FOLKs do NOT know of what they speak.

Your owners manual... Pages 192 & 246 both confirm... that your vehicle can be towed... and the SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES.

Drive wheels can only be towed in EMERGENCIES...
NOT to exceed 35 miles per hour...
Not to exceed 50 miles...!!


~~
If the drive wheels are off the ground... REGULAR TOWING PRECAUTIONS SHOULD APPLY.

(lets say a rear wheel drive... if the REAR WHEELS are on a carrier... you should be all PEACHES (reverse tow)).


If you cannot limit your distance or speed... and drive wheels are ON-THE GROUND...

Your DRIVE SHAFTS should be removed to protect the transfer case and/or transmission (by an AUTHORIZED FORD TECHNICIAN).


If you require assistance or clarification on Ford Motor Company policies or procedures, please contact the Ford Customer Relationship
Center at 1-800-392-3673 (FORD)

Hope this helps!!

When I was driving with my heater on it made a quite loud thump in my 2007 ford explorer sport trac and the check engine light came on


Something got jammed inside the blower motor, causing the sensor to get a "Check Engine" light. Have a mechanic look at it. Probably a holder plastic. Otherwise, an OBD Scanner tool can reset the light.

2001 ford sport trac put it in drive or reverse and let it idle and it shakes real badlike the motor is about to fall out give it gas and goes away check engine lite not on and no codes found only...


It sounds like you have a bad motor or transmission mount. Open your hood, and have a friend start your vehicle, and put it into drive. Observe the engine to see what is vibrating.

2005 Sport Trac Cruise Control does not engage


If you can please look under the hood and find the Air filter, and follow that all the way to a round metal part (Throttle body) If you can see it there will be a coil,and on that coid will extrude a curved plate with a cable(throttle cable) attached to it running all the way back inward toward the back of the engine, and next to that there should be a second cable (crusie control cable). This cable is pulled on when you engage the cruise control, by a black box next to the fuse box.
If the Cruise control cable is near by try to reattach it and if it is damaged then have your dealership or some one mechanically inclinded to replace the tip ( if plastic) or replace the cable.
If that didnt help please get back to me

2001 Ford Sport Trac - Front & Rear Timing Chains


The rear timing chain (or "cassette" as it's called in Ford lingo) is the chain that drives bank #1 (passenger side) cam. The front timing chain drives bank #2 (driver side) cam. There is a also a primary "jackshaft" chain that is driven by the crankshaft in order to enable both banks to be driven through a common shaft. The reason for this peculiar layout is because this engine is a "derivative" of the 4.0L OHV V6 engine it replaces. Ford simply installed a dummy shaft in place of where the camshaft used to reside on the original OHV engines. But above all else, the job you describe SHOULD NOT be carried out by anyone unfamiliar with this particular engine. There are NO timing marks on any of the drive sprockets, nor are they key to their corresponding shafts. To time this particular engine requires use of FIVE dedicated Ford/Rotunda tools that hold all relevant parts in proper position. Failing to carry this procedure out correctly, will result in the bending of ALL valves with 100% certainty!!! Therefore, it is best left to a Ford dealer technician to carry out. If you would like more information regarding diagrams, TSBs, and procedures with detailed illustrations, please e-mail me directly with your FULL Yahoo e-mail address so I can attach PDF files. Hope this helps.
