The reason your car stalls out on hot days is probably a vapor barrier issue.

I keep hearing a noise coming from the front passenger side wheel. its not loud but it concerns me. what could it possibly be?

A lot of those had 4 wheel drive hub issues. If placed into 4 wheel, under power--the hubs can crack.
Or, it could be a dragging or seized barake caliper. Or, it could be a wheel bearing.

Bottom line is you will have to remove the wheel and have a look.

96 ford explorer power locks or windows not working

On a 96' Ford Explorer XLT (like mine) the code is in the trunk of the truck behind the plastic cover where your tire jack and wrench are! There will be two plastic knobs that you will have to turn to open and lift it off, real simple. The code will be on the fender wall, bring paper and pen to write and will need a flash light so you can see the code clearly.


The code is real close the the plasic and kinda hard to see. Hope this helps! If you dont see the above,then try looking around in that area for a 5 digit code, in the fender well or around the jack, or even around the rear washer bottle. Most people have said its around the jack.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

1996 Ford Explorer XLT V6 - will start but stalls after 5 mins.

This can be cause by many things, such as a fuel pump going bad / or is bad, fuel injectors need cleaned / replaced, fuel filter dirty just to name a few. Could also have a vapor lock where the fuel line is running to close to a heat source like the manifold or engine and the heat creates a vacum in the fuel line stopping the flow of fuel. Best bet have a garage repair shop look at it. To many hit and miss causes.

2003 Ford Explorer XLT Air Conditioning vents blow hot and cold

It sounds like the control motor switching from hot to cold is stuck halfway in between the two temp settings. You will have to take it down and replace it, it is mounted under dash passenger side near the blower motor.
