1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I really loved my 97 XLT Explorer,
however it wasn't too kind to me, I
drove it a year or so, and it was
great, then the problems started. As
previously stated by somebody else,
tensioner problems, believe that stuff.
The tensioner broke on mime Then the
transmission problems began it was
going to be around $2000 to fix that
problem. So I
traded it off. I miss it a lot, I'd
love to have another. Mine had 107000
miles when the problems began. and oh
yea, the check engine light burned for
a long time... no problems, when the
check engine light quit burning, thats
when the problems began.`
