Hey before you go spending $$$ on the Ford there are a few people here to get a 2nd opinion from

Send a PM to richsworkshop he knows Fords!

There is also Tom from TLE he has a shop in Mission. This guy knows Fords inside out and backwards.

I also have a front wiper motor that is yours if you want it

i need to find a shop that will make all the repairs needed and make it so the warranty covers everything...
I dunno if there are anyone willing to do that...
It has to be a licenced shop.

I just got back from superrior trans and they think that its my tranny leaking and that it needs new plugs! the warranty will cover it but there is a chance that it may be something that is not covered.
As for the low range i do have it i have to have the clutch pushed in to engage it..DUH I can be sooo stupid!!

Suggestion for that exploder!

My wife drove a 1993 ford explorer, we bought it at 150,000km and sold at 230,000. Every third month for the last two years was spent fixing this thing. If it was not the tranny ( if you pull a trailer at all, this thing is fucked) it was the engine, transfer box, hubs, you get the point.... Once these things start to go, they go fast. Fix as much as you can under extended warranty, throw a couple more bucks into it and trade it off or sell it!
Hopefully this will curve the headache for you that I recieved....

Just what I need, another wagon!

Incredible! I just recieved a phone call from a friend that also has an explorer. Time to change his engine @ 170,000. It's not that these little SUV's suck, it's just that there is so many on the road, you hear the plagued problems that they have more often...... Luckly, the ford aerostar has the same engine, those will be at your local pick a part....
