1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I noticed that a few people also have had the starting and stalling problem that I did for so many years. I attributed it to the cold winters in the Pacific NW. When I move to Arizona I still had the problem. I paid the dealership to find the problem and they did. It was a bad intake manifold gasket set. I paid $100 to find the problem and $20 for parts and fix it myself. Never again had the problem. I had the transmission replaced two years ago due to a broken fluid pump motor. I also have been told that the timming chain guides need to be fixed or replaced.

Best Features

I love its design. I liked it from the day I bought it.

Worst Features

The only down side is lack of aftermarked performance accessories. I also cannot rent a trailer from U-Haul. Something about high rollover risk but I know it was from the tire problems Firestone had.
