* Remove the screws from the top of the instrument panel. Set the parking brake and pull the shift lever down to improve access. Rotate the instrument panel to gain access to the back. The black bulb holders house the panel lights, the tan bulb holders house the sensor lights. Reach behind and grip the back of one of the holders. Twist it counter clockwise and pull outwards. Burned out bulbs will have a black coating. Replace with an identical bulb (194). * I recommend replacing all bulbs while it is out (they all went in at the same time, they are all likely to burn out about the same time) Check the link below for Auto Zone directions to remove the Instrument Panel

Some Ford models had a external voltage regulator. If yours does, replace it.
According to my Haynes repair manual, 1997 through 2000 Ford Explorer models: have a R-134a capacity of 22 ounces
The cam sensor is located on the top of the engine where older models had a distributor installed. The sensor needs a special tool to be able to remove and replace it.
where is the thermostat and how do you replace it on a 1997 ford explorer? I don't know why this is listed as an answer. Its in the front top of the engine. in the middle, underneath that plastic cover that says SOHC. You'll probably need a universal joint on your extention to remove the 3 bolts holding it in place. (10 mm) One of the big hoses from the radiator connects directly to the plastic housing that surrounds it. Can't miss it.
That seems to be a common problem on the 1998 models. From what I have read, it seems to be bad soldered connections in the radio.
Starting with the 1995 models of the Ford Explorer the automatic transmissions were ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED ( so , the answer would be NO )
I'm not a mechanic / technician but I don't think so From what I have read there are ( 3 ) different engine blocks for the Ford 4.0 liter OHV / pushrod style V6 engine used in a Ford Explorer ( 1991 to 1994 models ) ( 1995 and 1996 models ) ( 1997 to 2000 models )
In the fuel tank
According to motorcraft . com , the automatic transmission in a 1995 Ford Explorer only is used on the 1995 and 1996 models , so no
I would say ( no ) In a Ford Explorer , the 2002 and newer models had a third row seat available . Earlier models were not designed to have a third row seat
That depends on what model year the 4 door Ford Explorer is : 1995 to 2001 models are / or around ( 21 U.S. gallons ) 2002 to 2010 models are , I believe ( 22.5 )
