    V8 help

    I am running a 4r70w out of an 00 explorer. computer was professionally tuned, and im getting about 9 - 10 mpg in city and about 15 on the highway. I can live with the lower mpg for now, but I need to get the transmission's hesitations out of the way. It hesitates only under heavy electrical...

    V8 help

    So, it's been about a month. I still have the P0340 that comes on, but I have found that when I unplug the EGR pressure sensor, I only get that code, no longer a P0340 code, so I think that May be the issue. Otherwise, I got a brand new alternator installed and a new cam synchronizer, which I...

    Plastic Gas Tank Hole Fix.

    Yeah, IDK why there are so many homeless here. I've heard that the local city gov. gives a lot of handouts, but idk. I'm not from Washington and am not planning on staying after I graduate from school. The part about a locking gas filler actually made me the most upset. My tank doesn't have a...

    Plastic Gas Tank Hole Fix.

    That's the basic plan as of right now; I just don't have the time or money to put a new one in, i figured the rubber would get worn out at some point. as for a skid plate, I have the OE skid plat on the bottom of it. If you look at the pic with the hole, the skid plate is on the bottom, and the...

    Plastic Gas Tank Hole Fix.

    Hey all, I figured I would post this here because I had difficulty finding much information about it online. I, living in the shizz hole that is Spokane, am dealing with a vast amount of homeless people on a daily; it hasn't mattered much until last week when I had someone drill a hole in the...

    00 Ranger Axle Swap

    hey all, I am currently planning out an axle swap for my ranger. It all seems pretty straight forward. I am planning on using the Dana44 and 9" coming out of a 78/79 F150. I have my eye on the James Duff long travel radius arm kit to accomplish the swap. My question comes in with the VSS on my...

    So, I think I solved the transmission issues, I took the time to do a proper fluid check and got it perfect and haven't had any other problems. the P0340, idk what its about, i have a new alternator in so it should be ok, so if it comes back up, then Ill check it. the engine is running a little...

    V8 help

    new symptom, P0340 code has popped up, I did have my cam synchronizer go out and I replaced it with the highest quality one I could find. I have a new sensor, and a new alternator, and haven't had any trouble with this code over the last 200 miles since I put the motor back together.

    Yes, I have a 302 out of an 00 Mountaineer and the accompanying 4R70W. Both of which only had 80k miles on them. my transfer case doesn't work, pretty sure the chain is broken inside, but its a manual shift BW4406 out of an 00 F150. maybe that's the culprit ?

    V8 help

    new symptom, its just started to intermittently hesitate to shift up around 40 mph. Not a ton of times, but not none either. I have no idea whats up with this truck. Also, I put in the new MAF, it brought the long term fuel trim down from 14-16 to within spec (barely) having them sit between 9...

    V8 help

    also I should probably note, My cats are both brand new, since I had to build the exhaust system for the 5.0, and my fuel filter was changed probably 5 months ago. and the guy who deleted the PATS system off my explorer computer also added an "87 octane performance package" to the computer...

    V8 help

    Ok, so I've finally been able to get in a decent amount of driving and my MPG still sucks nuts, about 10 in the city. All the things that have been replaced within the past month. IAC, PCV, Spark Plugs, Wires, all vacuum lines, Fuel injectors, 02 sensors (upstream). I realize that I'm basically...

    I feel like this is the only forum that actually responds to my questions, so I post on here way too much... sorry. anyway, I've been looking at ways to gain more power out of my 302. I have some AFR heads picked out and an E303 cam. I have, however, like so many others, seem to have gotten...

    new valve cover gasket installed, no oil leak, so i guess the rear main was fine and I had a small valve cover leak before. guess thats what I get for using the crappy cork Gaskets. My new gasket is the fel pro silicone.

    V8 help

    Just went and checked it out, it was all plugged in and working fine, what I did find was that the oil was not leaking out of the rear main seal.. for the most part. It was leaking out the back of my valve cover, So I pulled the intake off and have an order in for a new rubber fel-pro gasket. I...
