The vin number is the easiest way to tell for sure, if you can give me the vin i can help you with that, also typically the sohc has a engine cover that says sohc. Please rate this answer as that is my only compensation. Thankyou

Can you change a 55re and a 1l3p-7000 in a 2002 ford explorer will it interchange


Check the 8th digit of your vin and the letter (engine) is probably listed as "W". This engine was used in the 03-04-and 05 models. Take note though I purchased a 2000 V6 explorer new which was suppose to come with the 4.0 V6 SOHC engine. A year of so later I was doing some minor work and noticed I had the old 4.0 pushrod engine in the vehicle. I immediately check with Ford and learned some leftover engines from model year 1999, which used both V6 engines, were installed in the 2000 model. I was instructed to check the engine code with the vin. Sure enough the code was for the older engine. Using an engine with the same engine code should work.

What does 4.ol OHV mean


the vehicle in the picture i believe is a 1998 -2000 if so ford used the 4.0L not the sohc motor . i just got rid of my 1998 explorier sport 2 door and spent the good part of my life as a mechanic for Ford Motor Company double check the year if you have 1998 to 2001 it is going to be the 4.0L

I have a 1994 ford explorer sport, im trying to figure out whether or not its a 4.0L pushrod v6 or a 4.0L sohc v6


if the moter says sohc on the valve cover that means the cam is in the head but most ford V6 motors have the cam in the block making it have pushrods.

The starter will spin the engine but the engine will not fire. this is happening to a 2001 ford explorer sport trac. the spark plugs are getting fire and when i tried to use starter fluid nothing happened


I hope you didnt spray starting fluid through the mass air meter. If you did, this will cause a very expensive repair. There is a "Hot" wire in there that will be damaged. Please tell me what engine you have, either a 4.0L SOHC or a 4.0 OHV. The issues could be different, depending on the engine. Both need fuel, spark, and compression to fire with the fuel, and ignition timing and the fuel timing is critical.

Hello,
Very common concern with the Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac and Ranger with the 4.0l SOHC engine! The upper and lower intake manifold gaskets fail, causing vacuum leaks..It can be Extremely difficult to detect these leaks, because they only leak intermittently (usually in the AM after a cold soak)... As the engine warms up they seal back up! Sometimes the vehicle will idle rough, surge or stall after initial start up, then the symptoms will clear after it gets to operating temperature... Usually there will be no driveability symptoms at all, except the engine light coming on and setting lean codes.. The gaskets have been redesigned to correct this concern..

I need to know the correct direction of the heater valve on a ford explorer 1998?


4.0L pushrod engine shown. 4.0L SOHC or 5.0L v-8 not shown. The spring side usually faces away from coolant in engine. The side with the wax pellet in the little can faces the engine so the hot coolant is touching it.
