Check fluid levels. If its not low, it may be time for a rebuild. Try in all gears to see if it will move

  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

With test light, verify you have power & ground to the motor, when ignition is on & switch is on high.If so, blower motor will need to be replaced. If not check fuse or blower motor resistor.

yes you can but you need special tools you need an air compressor and hose with a fitting that will screw into your sprrk plug hole. then you need an over head valve spring compressor. the air from the compressor will hold the valve against the head while you remove the valve retainers or collets to remove the spring. then you just assemble it all again is not hard but you do need the right gear

I'm surprised they didnt sel you a oxygen sensor. Let the engine idle and see if you can locate a vacuum leak. listen for a air hissing noise. the pcv lines have rubber ends and are suspect. the dealer will have the parts you need.

Why would you waste money on fuel injection cleaning?
Why would you replace perfectly good ignition wires,they
do not wear out. (You only replace when they fail)
I have had OEM wires on a veh for over 17 years,over 18 on another
and 21 years ,on the one I currently use.

You paid to have preventative maintainance work done to
your vehicle.
Now it is either the same as before or worse.
Take it back,and tell the shop why you went there in the first
place. If you don't spend time there and be part of the solution,
they recommend and start performing services they make money on.
That is not how you do drivability diagnostics.
