Question about Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a 95 ford explorer limited edition. I blew a head gasket and just put in a rebuilt engine. Now my automatic transmission is not working. I can put it in all gears but it does nothing just stays in park. Any ideas? I check the transmission fluid and its fine.

Two things come to mind. Double check to make sure the shifter linkage is hooked up properly and double check to make sure the torque converter bolts were put back in. Hope this helps.

I have a 1993 Ford Explorer that goes into high idle when I put in gear. It does this when the engine is hot or cold.

On some cars there's a speed sensor on the clutch or transmission. That might cause an idle problem.

The only way pressure can build up in the radiator is for combustion gasses to leak into the cooling system. This is usualy from a blown head gasket, a cracked cylinder head or a porous block. These things should have been checked for when the engine was rebuilt. Assuming it was done by an engine reconditioning service.

Cna you use a transmission from an s model car to put in a sl edition

Probably possible. The tranny in my '95 Saturn SL2 failed at 30k and the engine blew at 57k while starting. Hope you have better luck; no more GM for me.

I have told that I might have a blown head gasket, what can I do temporaily to keep from over heating a 93 Ford Exlorer 4.0 OHV engine?

If the gasket is blown there is no fix other than to replace the gasket. No temporary fixes will work.

I have a 95 limited ford explorer where the blower

You probably have an automatic unit and the problem could be in the control head. The best way to find out is to unplug the unit. It has to send the ground path for the fan to run. These have been known to give problems.

the transmission is loseing internal fluid pressure, its time for a rebuilt transmission. The A4ld that your explorer has is prone to trouble in this area. A good rebuilt transmission may cost at least $1700 dollars.
