Evidently they are re-designing the frame/front end to accommodate it...
The 5.0 barely fits in the current Explorer and I know the 4.6 is
approximately 8" wider.

There is a harness you have to add that runs from the amp assy. to the
changer.

Hi Joe,
I believe the 99 uses a linear EGR valve and a position sensor built in to
the EGR valve.
The seperate DPS sensor is used on the EGR where the EGR valve connects to
the exhaust manifold thru a tube, and that tube has the 2 lines that run to
the sensor.

David

What would that type of EGR valve look like?  The one on mine is like the
old Ford types were there is a vacuum diaphragm connect to the intake and a
1/2 tube from the exhaust header.

Subject: Ranger has the shakes...


Well, this one has me stumped. First off, the truck is a 97 Ranger
Supercab - 3.0L 5 spd, 2wd, unmodified suspension. Well, the problem
lies here: If I hit the brakes pretty hard, I get a jolt from the back
end after the truck stops. It feels kind of like being tapped by another
vehicle after I stop. The main thing that confuses me is that the truck
is sitting still for about 1-2 seconds or so and then it comes. I
checked my spare, and it's secure. I don't see anything loose, and the
driveshaft felt solid. It doesn't do it if I am stopping at a slow pace,
but a sudden stop and it will. It just started doing this, since I don't
ever remember it doing it before...Thanks in advance for any
help/advice..

Joe
