Thermostats

Where is the thermostat and how do you replace it on a 1991 through 2008 Ford Explorer all models?

Here is advice for finding the thermostat: * Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine and there is a housing that houses the thermostat. Take it off and when you reinstall the thermostsat, make sure the spring goes toward the engine. * The thermostat is located on the motor block under the three bolt flang that the top rediator hose connects to. Remove the three 10MM bolts and the thermostat can be removed for replacement. * 1. Remove the air cleaner air duct from the throttle body and air cleaner. * 2. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine to locate the thermostat housing. The housing is located at the front of the intake manifold. * 3. Loosen the hose clamp, then detach the hose from the fitting. This can be difficult. If it's stuck, grasp with a pair of adjustable pliers and twist to break the seal. Then pull it off. * 4. Remove the bolts and detach the housing cover. Be prepared some coolant may leak out as the gasket seal is broken. Remove the thermostat. * 5. Install the new o-ring onto the thermostat (no gasket is needed) and install the thermostat into the intake manifold with the spring side pointing toward the engine. * 6. Make sure the air release valve is in the up 12 o'clock position. Install housing cover and bolts. Reattach the hose fitting and tighten the hose clamp. Fill the cooling system with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water, and burp the system.

If you are installing a new radio, do yourself a huge favor and don't cut those wires!

Haynes has a generic stereo wiring diagram in the back of their books but as for the actual wiring of the stereo itself, I don't know.

or go to www.modifiedlife.com it has alot of different wiring diagrams

This may help a little if you haven't had an answer yet. I had to rewire my aftermarket stereo to work with the '98 Taurus which uses basically the same system as a '96 model. Although some of my color coding isn't the OEM standard so it won't help you here. You need to buy a new speaker harness if you are changing out the stereo because first off, the tuner is in the back of the car on the driver side trunk. The radio is actually just a receiver in this model of vehicle between the years of 1996-1999. There is no antenna line running to the front. But, if you need to know the wire colors start writing them down; you can find the speaker wires on the left plug that is going into the tuner (in the trunk).

This may help: http://www.modifiedlife.com/1997-ford-taurus-car-radio-stereo-wiring-diagram/

I couldn't find one for the 1996, but like I said, it should be about the same if not exact.

If you need more help, talk to a specialist at a local car audio shop.

Fuel Filters
Ford Explorer

How do you replace the fuel filter on a 1991 through 2001 Ford Explorer all models?

The fuel filter is on the drivers side frame rail, inner side, located at the center of the drivers side door (for a 4 door). Before attempting to remove the fuel lines from the filter you must DEPRESSURIZE THE FUEL SYSTEM! First pop open the gas filler cap and release any pressure from the gas tank. Next you must release the pressure in the fuel lines and intake manifold by releasing the pressure at the Schrader valve (like the ones on your tires) located to the left of the intake manifold on the fuel rail (as you are standing at the front of the car). Stuff a rag below the valve and depress the valve. You should wear gloves and safety glasses, as gas will come out of the valve. Do not do this over a recently driven hot engine. Depress until no pressure releases from the valve. To remove the filter, you will need a special tool called a "quick release" to remove the fuel lines from the filter. Don't worry, the tool is a simple plastic ring (available at most auto parts stores $5-$15) that releases she spring clip. Ask for the fuel line "quick release" tools. Gather a drip pan and place under the filter, you will be releasing one to three ounces of gas from the lines so be prepared. Again wear safety glasses and gloves. Pop off the two safety clips from the filter ends. Snap your "quick release" disconnect ring over the filter inlet tube and push the ring into the bell-shaped fuel line end. While holding the tool slide the fuel line away from the filter. Repeat on the other fuel line. Pull out the old filter from the spring clamp, install new filter, push on fuel lines, (they should click into place, test by trying to pull the line off). Snap the safety clips back on and you're done. Go wash up, you stink.... ;)

What are some basic steps to diagnosing ABS brake warning lights on Taurus - Sable?

ABS, anti-lock brake systems are actually pretty basic:

  • Control module
  • Wheel sensor / 'exciter' ring (toothed gear integrated into end of axle shaft)
Diagnostics
  • Examine each wheel for physical problems
  • **
    • Mud & debris on the ring that could interfere with the sensor
    • Wiring - broken, frayed, corroded
    • Wiring connector - disconnected, corroded
  • Trouble codes
  • **
    • requires specialized scan tool (about $200)
    • As with engine codes, will provide more detailed information for diagnostics - such as a recurring code to a specific wheel as in my case.
    • Appears that most places charge to have codes read - I paid $45 at my favorite tire shop. Dealers, brakes shops, tire shops, some auto parts offer ABS scan / code retrieval
Repair
  • Wheel sensor
    • Sensor mounts into the back side of the steering knuckle with one small bolt. Can be stuck in the casting and take some effort to remove in one piece (in case you're trying to salvage it). Be patient and have good penetrating oil on hand.
    • Trace wiring - the front connectors are typically up behind the plastic wheel well liner for protection from the road elements - lots of sheet metal screws & more penetrating oil
    • Individual sensors range in price from about $45 and up
  • Control module
  • **
    • Not repairable and expensive (that's about all I know)
  • Bleeding the system
    • ABS systems are particularly sensitive to air in the lines - the control module gets upset by the presence of anything but fluid.
    • According to Chiltons procedure write-up, the ABS scanner needs to be used during bleeding process
    • The bleeding sequence goes Rt Ft, Lf Ft, Lf R, Rt R
    • sounds like it is a complete flushing of fluid - have a few jugs of fluid on hand

How do you change the tail light on a 1991 through 2007 Ford Explorer all models?

As I was poking around the truck trying to figure it out. My wife asked wouldn't that information be in the owners manual? I said "naaaa" they don't put that kind of information in the owners manual. The only thing I found was two really small screws located on the inside edge as you open the tailgate. As I was loosening these screws my wife found the information IN THE OWNERS MANUAL on page 294. "Replacing tail/brake/turn/backup lamp bulbs: 1.) Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position, then open the liftgate to expose the lamp assembly screws. 2.) Remove the two screws from the lamp assembly. 3.) Pull the lamp assembly towards the rear and side of the vehicle at an angle carefully removing it from the vehicle. 4.) Rotate the bulb socket counterclockwise and remove from the lamp assembly. 5.) Pull the bulb straight out of the socket and push in the new bulb. 6.) To complete installation, follow the removal procedure in reverse order." Note---> These screws are only screwed into plastic! Do NOT overtighten them!

How do you replace the lights in the dash of 1991 through 2001 Ford Explorer all models?

* 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

Technology

How do you drive a non-synchromesh gearbox?

The technique for driving a vehicle fitted a non-sychromesh is to match the engine speed to the transmission speed by raising or lowering the engine speed.

The technique to change up is this:

  1. Depress clutch (not all the way to the floor, just enough to disengage)
  2. Move gearstick into neutral position
  3. Release clutch
  4. Depress the clutch once the engine has slowed the appropriate amount
  5. Move the gearstick into the higher gear.

The number of revolutions per minute to reduce depends on the normal gap between the gears (usually 600 to 800 rpm), whether the vehicle is speeding up or slowing down

The technique to downshift is

  1. Depress cluch
  2. Move gearstick into neutral position
  3. Release clutch
  4. Increase the engine speed by the appropriate amount
  5. Depress clutch
  6. Move gearstick into the lower gear

Again, the amount to increase depends on the transmission and vehicle acceleration.

There is no real substitute for practice.

If the speeds are not matched, the gears cannot engage, no matter how hard the gearstick is pushed.

If the gear does not engage, then the engine speed needs to be adjusted. Generally a high pitched grind indicates the engine is too fast, and a lower pitched grind indicates the engine is too slow.

If the gear cannot be engaged, the vehicle needs to be stopped as it is very dangerous to let a vehicle coast in neutral while the driver is hunting for a gear.

Fuel Pumps
Ford Windstar
Ford Explorer

Where is the fuel pump and how do you replace it on a Ford Windstar?

How Much for the pump and labor to replace?

The Ford branded pump lists for over $300 - aftermarket brands run ~ $125-200 here (jan 2009). The labor in the book is 2 hours.


Prices range from $100 - $140 - $200 - $232 (Motorcraft brand!).

Answer

It is in the fuel tank. You will have to jack up the rear as high as you can , and secure on jack stands. You will need some help, and hopefully the tank is nearly empty, otherwise you are in for a battle.

The tank is held is with two long straps. Also there is a filler neck and vent hose at the rear of the tank that will have to be disconnected. The tank will have to be lowered and removed. I recommend some help and a good floor jack, with a piece of plywood between the jack and the tank.

Lower the tank slowly while disconnecting fuel lines and wires as they become visible.

Once the tank is removed, you can remove the fuel pump lock ring on top of the tank. It screws off counterclockwise, but it is stubborn. I use a hammer and a big flat screwdriver to get it loose. From there it is self-explanatory. Replace the pump, and reassemble.

Answer

See "Related Links" for Autozone's free, online Chilton's Service Manual illustrated procedures for removing the gas tank. This should be an excellent guide even for the later models.

There is also a link to the same repair guide with information on the fuel pump itself. Again, the information should be very applicable to the different model years (a pump is a pump is a pump?)

NOTE: Autozone now requires free registration to access the repair guides. More than worth the extra effort for these photo/illustrated instructions.

Drain the fuel out of the tank, and then drop the tank. Fuel pump is located inside of fuel tank.

Answer

See "Related Questions" below for a write-up on the same procedures for a 2000+ Taurus - much of it applies well to the Windstar

It is in the gas tank. Fuel tank must be removed to replace it.

just connect all hoses on fuel tank, drain fuel if there a lot fuel in tank, lower fuel tank by removing the 2 bolts on fuel tank straps you will need special fuel line remover tool to remove fuel lines from fuel pump and just connect wire connector on fuel pump clean off all dirt by fuel pump remove lock ring pull fuel pump out

Answer

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. To access it you must drop the tank.

not necessarily most people do but i have cut a hole through the truck or floor if you want to just be very careful if you cut it in the right spot it only has to be a few inches bigger than the pump

On most fuel injected vehicles (maybe all) there are two fuel pumps. The low pressure / high volume pump is in the tank. The high pressure pump that serves the injector manifold is usually mounted on the frame in the engine compartment. The pump you hear at start-up is the one in the tank. Carl

How to replace the front brake pads on a 1995 through 2001 Ford ExplorerRemove the two bolts on either side of the brake hose with the rubber boots. Do not remove the four bolts where the axle ties in. The two bolts to be removed require a 10mm socket/wrench. Loosen the pads from the caliper. Replace How to replace the rear brake pads on a 1995 through 2001 Ford ExplorerThe system utilizes a drum-in-hat type rear brake rotor. The integral drum allows the use of a drum-and-shoe type parking brake system. All other components are similar to their front disc brake components

Remove the two bolts on either side of the brake hose with the rubber boots. Do not remove the four bolts where the axle ties in. The two bolts to be removed require a 10mm socket/wrench. Loosen the pads from the caliper

Rotor RemovalIn order to take the rotors off (replace with new or have them machined), it is best to loosen the emergency brake shoes. To do this, behind the rotors, in the back there is a rubber plug, remove that and you can use a screw driver to engage the teeth of the adjusting screw, turn it clockwise to loosen, usually 10-20 teeth. Usually this means turn it downward. After this, it may still be difficult to get the rotors off without tapping them. Use a rubber mallet and hit them from behind. Before really whacking the rotor, make sure you have loosened the adjusting screw enough. It may take heavy swings of the rubber hammer to do this. It will eventually break loose. Parking BrakeYou might want to check the parking brake while you are here.

To remove:

  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Remove the outboard return spring.
  • Remove the adjusting screw spring.
  • Remove the rear brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove the brake shoe adjusting screw and nut.
  • Remove the front brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove both parking brake shoes and the inboard return spring.
  • Check the parking brake lever for excessive wear and replace as necessary.

To install:

  • Position the front parking brake shoe to the backing plate and install the hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the rear parking brake shoe with the inboard return spring.
  • Position the brake shoe adjuster screw and nut on the shoes and install the rear shoe hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the brake shoe adjuster spring.
  • Install the outboard return spring.
  • Adjust the parking brake shoes and install the rotor, caliper and wheel.
  • Lower the vehicle and tighten the wheel lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).

ADJUSTMENT

  • Measure the inside of the drum portion of the rear brake rotor
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Using Brake Adjustment Gauge D81L-1103-A or equivalent, measure the inside diameter of the drum portion of the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Subtract 0.020 in. (0.508mm) from the first measurement, adjust the brake shoes to that size
  • Adjust the parking brake adjuster screw until the outside diameter of the parking brake shoes measures 0.020 in. (0.508mm) less than the drum measurement.
  • Install the rear disc brake rotor.
ReassemblyReassembly is easy. Put new or machined rotors back on by sliding them over the lugs (they should slide on easily.) Loosen bleeder valve (having a catch bottle handy is good). Push calipers in slowly (using a c-clamp or large channel lock pliers), close bleeder valve. Put on pads. Lubricate metal clips with small amount of anti-seize.

Re-adjust the emergency brake by turning the opposite direction from loosening.

Refill the brake master cylinder

Thats a very difficult task so I would advise you to let a certified technician do the job because it is kind of complicated and can cause damage if not fitted correctly.

What size tire for a 96 Ford Explorer?

I believe that was P 235 / 75 / R 15 with the XLT ( check the information sticker on the end of the drivers door , it will show the tire size that originally came on the vehicle )
