Rear end/pinion bearing noise is a pretty common complaint on the Explorer and its variants. Often the sound starts becoming audible around 50-55 mph and may change/go away under acceleration.

Right, if the connector is like those on the fuel filters, you need to spread them apart on the 2-tab side, not squeeze them in. With them spread apart, try to slide the tabs toward the inside of...

The hairpin style like what's used on fuel filters you release from the finger/double end. My recall is you push the two tabs toward the outside of the hose to get them to release their barb. You...

You could check with Torrie at Fast Parts Network (http://www.fastpartsnetwork.com/). He's good with performance tunes but I'm not sure if he will disable PATS or not, or if he has a tuner solution...

Also, check the ride height to make sure that it is actually riding low and that someone hasn't adjusted the front torsion bars to raise the front end.

I see quite a few Sports though that appear...

You could. You'll want to first determine if the switch is a momentary N.O. push button or a latching switch. I don't recall which it is and the wiring diagram doesn't make it clear. If the...

Fuse #27 makes sense for blowing if there's a wiring problem in this circuit. Fuse #27 (15A) feeds the switch, which is just a SPST switch. The switch should provide power to pin 29 of C175 at the...

I posted in the other thread that you asked your question in. I'll try to confirm that these wires just go to a switch and back to a module somewhere. It sounds like you have a wires shorted to...

These should just go to a switch. There shouldn't be any polarity involved. It sounds like you should check the wires to see if any of the four ends are shorted to ground.

I will try to pull the...

The factory service manual lists the 4R70W transmission for 1997-1999 at least so I think there was a misunderstanding with the friend. I do recall a 1 year only, or at least very limited use,...

Yep, so Explorer/Mountaineer V8's up through 2001 would have the 4R70 with the 5.0L. Starting in 2002 they switched body styles and went with the 4.6L V8 which was mated to the 5R55.
