My first question would be why do you believe the crankshaft is damaged but to answer your question a repair of this sort is going to require removing the engine from the vehicle, draining all fluids and placing it on an engine stand so that you can rotate it. Once that is accomplished (whew - a lot of work to this point) you can remove the oil pan exposing the crankshaft. Assuming the crankshaft is not physically broken which could have damaged other parts the removal will involve removing the connecting rod caps and if there is room pushing the connecting rod/piston assembly down in the cylinder bore. If there is not enough room, and the proper way to do it is to remove the heads and take out the piston/connecting rod assemblies. With that completed, you can then unbolt the main crankshaft caps and remove the crankshaft. Just about all crankshaft repair must be done by a machine shop to ensure that bearing clearances and surfaces are properly measured and finished.

Where is crankshaft sensor located on the 02 explorer xlt, 4.6L, 4x4? How's the best way to change one?


Hello rgates53: My name is Roger And I will answer your question. The crank position sensor is located on the right side of the harmonic balancer. The repair manual refers to dropping the A/C compressor out of the way. Just take the bolts out to gain access needed. Remove 10mm. bolt to remove sensor. See attached picture. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger44d050a.jpg

I need to add daytime running lamps to an 08 exlorer u.s. version non fleet. any suggestions?


All you have to do is carry it to your dealer and have them install there IDS scan tool and access programmable parameters in the smart junction box and turn on the feature.

Here is a copy of a broadcast message from Ford(sorry for the caps I just copied and pasted) on this:
20328 2006-2008 EXPLORER 4DR/MOUNTAINEER/2007-2008 EXPLORER SPORT TRAC - DAYTIME RUNNING LAMP ACTIVATION/DEACTIVATION
SOME 2006-2008 EXPLORER 4DR/MOUNTAINEER, AND 2007-2008 EXPLORER SPORT TRAC VEHICLES MAY HAVE CUSTOMERS THAT DESIRE TO ACTIVATE OR DEACTIVATE THE DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS (DRL). THE FEATURE HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE IDS AND PDS SCAN TOOLS AS A PROGRAMMABLE PARAMETER. THE PROCEDURE IS TO: SELECT MODULE PROGRAMMING FROM TOOLBOX, SELECT PROGRAMMABLE PARAMETERS, EXTERIOR LIGHTS. DRL WILL BE ONE OF THE SELECTIONS WITH ENABLE/DISABLE AS OPTIONS. NOTE: THIS IS NOT A WARRANTABLE REPAIR.
EFFECTIVE DATE: 07/03/2008
