Ping/Spark knock/detonation is caused by the fuel charge being ignited
before the spark plug fires then when the plug does fire all of a sudden
there are two flame fronts (explosions!) heading towards each other with
predictable results.

Keep going back to the dealer until it's resolved. The same additives
that raise octane in today's gasoline are the prime cause of carbon
deposits that increase the octane need. (catch-22!) There is *NO*
reason to use a fuel of higher octane than Ford specifies for your
engine when it's working as designed and there are TSBs that state that
this will cause more harm than the (intended) good. A couple quick
pings under load aren't anything to worry about but I gather it's more
severe than that! Keep us posted and feel free to e-mail me off list.

Pinging is caused by improper detonation of the fuel air mixture in the
combustion chamber. In a typical new car it is only noticed when the engine
is under load at lower RPM's like going up a hill in overdrive or something.
The engine in a current car should run without pinging when using the gas
rated the same as what is printed in the owners manual. Some cars have
detonation sensors that will restrict timing and adjust the fuel/air mixture
to stop detonation in case you end up having to use a fuel that is below the
grade the engine is designed for. A engines designed rating is usually
determined by the compression ratio of the cylinders, though not only by
this.

Of course older vehicles (prior to unleaded fuel) tend to Ping more easily
because of many reasons including: Higher than optimum compression ratio for
the fuel made today, carbon deposits in the cylinders causing "hot" spots,
Poor fuel air mixture and incorrect timing.

Here is a nice web page that goes through pinging and engine kocking:

I would pull the codes before you start throwing parts at it. There is a
possibility that the egr system is fine. Of course the valve is relatively
cheap so you could start there if you have no way to pull codes.

Another common cause of pinging-- You may have excessive carbon buildup. This
can do one of two things; create a hot spot which preignites the intake
mixture, or it bumps up the compression as the buildup reduces chamber volume.

I found this out reading a Ford TSB (technical service bulletin) on the V6
Probe GT, which has common pinging problems due to high compression ratio. If
it is pinging excessively, they (Ford) recommend the following procedure-- get
the engine hot, bring the rpms up to about 2500 rpms, disconnect a vacuum line
going into the intake manifold, and allow the vac line to suck up about a half
pint to a pint of water out of a can or jar. The water will actually nicely
steam-clean the combustion chambers. I thought this sounded silly, sucking
water into an engine in any manner, but I tried it on my '85 Bronco (195,000
miles, and nothing to lose) and it worked very well! Hope this helps. Also
remember, if you have a problem that is causing premature carbon buildup, you
are only treating the symptom here, not the problem, which is oil consumption
or rich mixture condition.

Whether or not you need parts for good alignment depends on whether or not
your truck will align within specs with the factory hardware. Mine was
obviously not under warranty-- alignment problems are alsways blamed on some
sort of abuse, hitting a pothole etc.

What he meant is every Explorer he sees with a chronic alignment problem needs
them, which is to say, every Explorer HE sees! ;^) There are of course many
Explorers that do hold a good alignment. Lou just never sees them too often.

Subject: RE: FTE Small - Explorer Cam

Are these parts on the Explorer/Rangers with the twin i-beam frontend? I
took my '93 Ranger in a while back and he said the ball joints are fine but
it needed a cam on the top on the passenger side before he could adjust the
caster/camber(?). The toe-in was fine but it still pulls to the right. He
said they were fairly expensive and I should probably just wait.

It needed front shocks so I put those on and swapped the tires from side to
side. Changed the way it handles but still pulls some. I think I will wait
until I get ready to buy new front tires to have the front end fixed. The
tires already have the waved edges from the bad shocks and being out of
balance at the same time.

The inexpensive models (copper tubes running thru fins) are not worth sh*t.
Before you create alot of work/expense for yourself, why not install a tranny
temperature gauge? If it starts to overheat where you will be driving, at
least you can pull over before doing damage, and install a "good" oil cooler
when convenient (one that is built like a small radiator).

Any paint and body supply store will have the proper double sided foam
adhesive. (not just plain double sided foam tape) but before you put them
on, use wax remover from the paint supply store and scrub the areas they
will be installed to ensure they stick. Also, ensure it's warm out when
you do install them so the adhesive bonds well... after 24 hours, re-wax
the fenders etc to seal the paint and keep them looking good.
