1994 Ford Explorer XL 2dr SUV

Review

Bought it 3 years ago at an auction for $200 with a badly rebuilt engine. They the put the head gaskets in upside down. Replaced all the rings and the bearings on a fresh block and all new gaskets. Most of the outer engine parts where original. Since then we've replaced water pump, alternator, battery, plugs,plug wires,clutch fan,ball joints,tires,radius arm bushings,door panel,MAF,Fuel filter,and clutch. Much of this was because I wanted it to perform at it's best.Would have did just fine without it. The gas mileage on the 5speed manual 4.0V6 is 18/20 City /22/26 Highway. But for 200 bucks this was a deal. Makes it from Phoenix to Denver no problem. Reliable and fun! Great on gas and roomy!

Favorite Features

Push Button 4X4. Roof Rack. Rear window and hatch open one or the other or both. Ground Clearance. Electric everything but seats. Cruise Control

Suggested Improvements

Transmission. Don't have the flywheel turned get a new one! 2nd gear synthesizers hate people in general on all Fords. Goes in but not easily. Urethane radius arm bushings.
