I have a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport. It sometimes stalls when coming to a stop. Ussually after driving several miles. It will restart in park and idle fine. But as soon as I shift it into drive it will die....


Go to a local transmission shop, an independant if possible, and ask them to test drive your vehicle.This is a more common problem with GM vehicles, but it sounds as though your trans may not be coming out of lockup, causing a situation very similar to pulling up to a stop with a manual trans , and not depressing the clutch. Lockup is designed to kick in at cruise speeds, and remove all slippage from an auto trans, thereby improving milage. Sometimes the trans will not unlock. The good news is that many times, it's not a incredibly expensive repair. Good luck!

How do I remove and replace the clutch?


Many things are involved in replacing a clutch. If it it 4 WD, you will have to remove the drive shafts, transfer case and the trans. If not, then just the drive shaft and trans. You will/may have to remove the starter. Disconnect the battery first. Don't forget the shifter. I'm not sure but I believe the belhousing may be seperate, older GM vehicles were, you will have to remove that as well. Then remove the clutch pressure plate which is usually held to the fly wheel by 6 to 8 bolts. And next the clutch plate. If the flywheel is really scored you should have it resurfaced and don't forget to torque the bolts when re-installing it. Reassemble in the reverse order. Having a clutch pilot bearing alignment tool is also very helpful when installing the clutch and pressure plate as it helps putting the trans back into location much easier. You should also replace the throw out bearing and pilot bearing in the crank shaft. If the clutch is hyd, don't forget to bleed it. Hope this helps and good luck!

How to engage 4x4 in a 94 ford exploer (auto trans) mauale hubs


Before you start the vehicle lock the hubs in by turning the lock out device in the hub center of each front hub. Now you can start the vehicle and while in park or neutral move the range selector on the floor to the range you would like to use. Most often you will use the 4 wheel high setting. The low setting is only for extremely heavy pulling and will throw you across the seat if you accelerate too hard. Never exceed 45 miles per hour when in 4 wheel drive as you will burn out the transmission or 4X4 transfercase bearings. Now to go back to two wheel drive. Move the floor selecter back to 2 wheel drive setting. Do this with the vehicle in park or neutral to prevent damage to the vehicle. Now you can unlock the hubs by reversing the hub lock out device in the center of the two front hubs. Important little known fact is that you do not want to drive aroind with the hubs constantly locked in as you will lower your fuel mileage and cause extra wear to the axles and associated parts. Hope that helps, please come see us again if you have any more questions, Thanks, Rich.

What Is a SUV


Hi,
SUV is the widely used and known acronym, for Sport Utility Vehicle. At first conception, an SUV was a vehicle that combined the towing capacity of a full-size truck with the passenger and storage capacity of a minivan. However, as consumer demands have changed, so has the SUV. Many manufacturers now focus on fuel-efficiency and driving and riding comfort, rather than towing capacity.

The typical features of an SUV include;
1. seating for five to seven,

2. high seating and road positioning, roomy interior,

3.Non-dedicated trunk space,

4. High engine capacity and 4 wheel drive capability.


Though the SUV was originally designed to be an off-road vehicle for sporting purposes, their popularity has spawned several different breeds, including the luxury SUV.
Like cars, the SUV has different classes and sizes. The mid-sized SUV, which typically seats five, is the best-selling variety in the United States. During the SUV’s height of popularity, the Ford Explorer remained the top-selling model. The compact and full-size SUV appeals to many consumers equally, but for different reasons. The luxury SUV has the same features as standard class models, but contains upgraded interiors and trim packages typically associated with luxury model vehicles, such as leather interior.


When next you hear the name "SUV",i believe you now know what they are talking about.

Need location of shift sensor on ford explorer 2002 sports trac (70,000 miles) need to know location and if this could cause reverse not to operate and the shift sensors function? also, goes forward but...


The Solenoid Pack in trans may be clogged up,now you got coolant in there. You flushed the trans I assume and could replace the solenoid control pack, but it will cost you 332.00 wholesale at trans supply house. After that it is out with trans and new clutches. How long did you drive not knowing you had coolant in the trans?

Well, there aren't really THAT many clutches in an automatic trans. The older ones had 2 or 3 and 2 band brakes that controlled 2 or 3 forward speeds and reverse. Newer ones have one or two more for overdrive and more speeds. Your jeep is more like the older style, with a lockup torque converter added. The original problem sounded like a piece of contamination in the tailshaft governor, and the best thing was (once it started working again) to leave it alone. The old Chrysler owners manuals told you not to touch the transmission, EVER, unless it was being used for a taxi or towing. The risk of additional contamination far outweighed the benefits of changing the fluid. Your problem now sounds like the valve body is contaminated and something is stuck. There are lots of little spools and valves that are machined to very tight tolerances. Little fibers from clutch wear and filter changes can cause this. It's got pressure, and it's still got clutches (it wants to be in 1st gear). A new valve body is a good bet to fix the problem, but the best thing is to take it to a transmission guy you think you can trust to test the pressures in the valve body and determine what is actually stuck and tell you if it can be repaired or needs replacing.
