At that age the valve seals are probably going bad and thats why it smokes until warm.

As the transmission control module controls all gear actions including the torque converter clutch operation then I would say yes.

My Ford Explorer Sport 1998 4wd 4ltr stopped in traffic. When I press the gas the engine revs however the driveshaft is not engaging and the vehicle will not move in any gear. I even tried putting it into...

It seems like this 98 is well known for this, i have a 98 as well and never had this problem YET? god i shouldnt have said it. but in my fuse cluster on the side of dash inside behind drivers door is a fuse in the 26 th position (10 A) that says its the electronic shift relay,electronic shift control module,power window relay,interior lamp relay,battery saver relay. CHECK THIS FUSE, also pos 27, ( 15A) it says DLR,back-up lamp switch,DTR sensor, GEM, (generic electronic module) ELECTRIC SHIFT. check this fuse also. Under the hood by the battery there is another fuse box inside there is a "POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE' I dont know what this is but it says what it says, it is located in the # 6 position and is a 10a fuse...." Be careful if you rev the gas as if it does engage you could do damage to drivtrain, also if someone is under,in front of or behind the vehicle and engages " POSSIBLE DEATH or SEVERE INJURIES could occur. Be safe and good luck

99 explorer cooling system empty in two days. no signs of water leaking except at the lower housing of the thermostat. no signs of water in the oil. the lower housing does not seem to be cracked nor the...

Have you checked inside vehicle to ensure there is no heater core leak? If not leak found there and leak at thermostat housing is not severe once at normal operating temp, issue could be with a cylinder head crack to an exhaust valve which generally vents coolant to exhaust with very little or none showing in oil.

1998 ford explorer speed senors

The VSS was deleted for 1998. The vehicle speed signal is generated by the rear anti-lock brake sensor and sent to the 4-wheel anti-lock brake system (4WABS) module. The 4WABS module sends the vehicle speed signal via circuit 679 (GY/BK) to all systems which require a vehicle speed signal input.

Did you recently change tires to maybe a different tire size. If so this may be your problem.If so to correct this you would have to have this calibrated into the PCM with a scan tool.

There is also a technical service bulletin out for harsh downshifts the number is 99-8-7. This requires a reprogram of the PCM.
