SOURCE: 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.

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

I remember when I had my 1998 F150, which is virtually the same vehicle as a truck, I had this same problem and found it to be a child lock.

SOURCE: car won't start focus is clicking

I wonder if your battery is really in an excellent shape. The way you described seem to be non sufficient voltage for the starter solenoid to engage completely. Make a quick observaton by leaving the headlight on while cranking the engine. If no significant drop on the headlight brightness. Then your battery is assumed to be good. (a cold crank voltage shouldn't below 10V) Then the remained items to work with is either the solenoid or the starter or both. I believe the solenoid is piggy pack on the starter. Most autopart stores would test it for free of charge.

I checked fuses and relays when i put the window button to go down nothing happens but the relay itself under the dash makes a buzzing noise ..so confused please help..


The window motor sounds like it quit working. Test the window motor by grounding it and putting 12v to it with a jumper wire and see if it works. If nothing happens, replace the motor.

1998 Ford Explorer beeping noise in right front dash why?


The Air Bag module will sound the tone generator if it is having a problem turning on the air bag light. Check for a burned out bulb, loss of power to the bulb from the fuse panel, or open circuit between the bulb and the air bag module. Try replacing the airbag light bulb.

Recently heard that a 2003 ford explorer sport trac had a anti-theft swith/button on floorboard that when activated will not allow vehicle to start. Where is that located? thanks


don't know about anything like that. I know Ford did put the emergency fuel shut-off switch on the passengers side floor up under the dash just behing the carpet on Rangers and were sometimes unplugged by passengers with long legs. It has a little red button on it that pushed down. Check to see if you have something like that. Maybe it shuts off when the anti-theft alarm is activated and has to be reset.

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
