My Explorer blew up & left me sit (4.0L SOHC V6 timing chain failure)
Bought this POS for $1,000 and a day after I get it the timing chains start
making a death rattle. It was majorly doctor'd up. Got if off some idiot in
his 20's whose a dealer in the inner city...heard bad shit about the cars
he sells and didnt listen, and now i learned my lesson. I sold the truck a
few days after it blew up for $600. Took a $500 loss...the biggest bust I
have ever taken with any car I've ever sold. Sold it to some old rich
people.....I have no idea why they wanted this POS with a blown motor and
220k miles. They said they were putting a new motor in it. Whatever floats
I'm still trying to figure out why a ghost was in this truck! You can see
the orb fly around as plain as day and go into the dash!

What I have to say about the 1998 Explorer: The Explorer used to be the
ultimate family car back in the late 90's and early 00's right beside the
midsize sedans the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. With about 400,000 being
sold every year up until 2002 it had alot going for it. Why was it such a
good seller? Well it was because it had great rugged looks and it's
versatile interior and room for a family made it such a good seller. The
ergonomics was really good too and the seats were nice and plush and the
Explorer also had plenty of power on tap. There is also many different trim
levels for any lifestyle ranging from the basic XL to a very luxurious
Limited. All in all this sport-ute was one of the best SUVS ever made

Ford Explorer 4X4 Front Hub & Bearing Repair
In this video I go over replacing the front hub and bearing on the Ford
Explorer line of vehicles from start to finish. This bearing is common for
abs codes but more common for a grinding and or humming noise.

Axle Nut- 185ft lbs

Transmission Repair - 4L60E Transmission Teardown Inspection
On this video we can see the disassembly of a 2006 4L60E transmission. The
most common failure on these units is 3rd. clutch burn up, the reaction sun
shell and the 2-4 band. Failure on these transmissions is not necessary the
way it is treated, rather is these common or pattern failures. Valve body
ware is also another issue and can be corrected installing a correction kit
of your choice.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

How to Fill Transmission-
Torque Sequence Illustration-
Here is how to remove and replace the solenoid pack for the transmission.
The faulty solenoids in this pack cause common problems such as delayed
engagement, harsh engagement, no engagement and various other gear shift
errors. If you have any of these symptoms and your fluid is not black and
burnt or full of metal in the pan. This is the likely cause of all your
issues more than anything else.
