Watch Out For The SOHC V-6
By Cibs on

Vehicle

1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Bought my Explorer used with 70k miles on it and thought what a great deal I got until I found out that FORD has had problems with the SOHC V-6. It seems so much that FORD upped the warranty to 6 years and 72k miles and unfortunately I am just over the miles and years for the warranty. The problems are with the intake gasket and the cam chain tensioners so look out if your Explorer is a 1997 to 1999 with the 4.0L SOHC V-6. Love this truck for everything else.

Favorite Features

Front and rear seat comfort and 4 wheel drive.

Suggested Improvements

FORD should further extend the warranty on the 4.0L V-6 SOHC engine.
