99.9% the problem is with the blend door on this model. This is a very common fail mode and is very expensive to have repaired at the dealer. HeaterTreater has developed an inexpensive, 100% effective fix for the problem.

No , a 1998 Ford Explorer has shock absorbers front and rear
Try reverse flushing Disconnect heater hoses and try running a garden hose through in both directions.
On a 1998 Ford Explorer : Bank 2 is the drivers side of the engine ( 5.0 and both versions of the 4.0 ) Sensor 1 would be close to the engine BEFORE the exhaust enters the catalytic converter
You have a leak in the heater core. The heater core is the only place that radiator water enters the truck cab, and both foggy windows and antifreeze odor are common indicators.
Remove both hoses, run water both ways through with a garden hose.
Check both the heater core as well as the heater hoses for leaks...........
Your heater relay switch may be bad
About 1 hour its in the middle of the dash both driver and passenger kick panels have to be removed
I would recommend Advance Auto or AutoZone they both have several heater cores for you to choose from and they also have several different warranties.
Yes any tail lights/head lights, pretty much everything but doors will fit on both ford explorer sports and 4dr explorers between the years 1998 and 2001
The explorer is Ann Bancroft.
With me, I found that Zwinky works the best in Internet Explorer. I tried it in both Google Chrome and Firefox, and they both shut themselves down. Internet Explorer did not, so I would suggest that you try that. :]
You just disconnect both heater hoses at the firewall in the engine compartment and connect them together with a 5/8 inch hose splice. You just disconnect both heater hoses at the firewall in the engine compartment and connect them together with a 5/8 inch hose splice. I am getting ready to do the same because it looks like the dealer is the only one that you can get a 1998 heater core from for $315.00. When I have more time to pull it out I am going to take it to the auto parts store where I can get a 1997 heater core for $65.00 and compare them, it may work or maybe I will have to make a few modifications to use it???
Disconnect both heater hoses from heater core and connect them together
I would disconnect both heater hoses from the engine, then fabricate a way to connect a garden hose to one of the hoses leading to the heater, then gently turn on water supply for a minute, then attach garden hose to opposite heater hose and flush again, then reattach both hoses to engine and top off coolant reservoir.
A temporary fix would be to pull both heater hoses and connect them to each other, then don't worry about the heater core leaking. It's summer in the northern hemisphere, and you don't NEED a heater.
apparently the heater core is plugged, try taking both hoses off of it and get a garden hose and try to flush it out.
I would say that your heater core is ok...it sounds like you have a bled door promlem in the dash.
He is both
there would be 2 heater hoses that go into the firewall of your car. disconect these and join both together with a peice of tube and couple of hose clamps. this will bypass the heater core
Your local auto parts dealer typically stocks a cooling system flush bib that will connect your garden hose to back flush the heater core. Disconnect both the heater hoses at the firewall (they are located behind the A/C condensor on the passenger side of the car) and connect the kit you picked up from your Auto Parts dealer.
With engine warmed up and running, open the hood, locate both heater hoses, feel each heater hose with your hand. If both hoses are equally hot, I would suspect you have a temp blend door problem. Replace the temp blend door actuator. If one hose is hot and the other is only warm or cool, I would suspect you have a plugged heater core, Try flushing it.
no , that is not really true, but it is good sense to replace both while you already have engine torn down
flush the heater core in both directions with water
A light bulb similar to a heater in that they both produce heat when in operation.
