Genuine 2013 Ford Explorer Parts That Live Up To Ford Heritage

Ford Explorer: The Whole SUV Package
Over its 25 year history, the Ford Explorer has become a mainstay in the SUV class. After replacing the Ford Bronco II in 1991, the first Ford Explorer set records outselling all import SUVs combined. The Explorer is still one of the most popular SUVs on the road after five generations and boasts a 27-year streak for best-selling SUV in North America in addition to being recognized as the Most Trusted SUV Automotive Brand. Since its inception, the Ford Explorer continues to live up to its accolades with enhanced driving systems, safety technology, and unique styling. Today, it remains a family-friendly, high-performance, fuel-efficient SUV with a comfortable interior and tight handling for its class.

Maintenance and Repair Tips for Your Ford Explorer
Though the Ford Explorer has the ability to handle even the most challenging driving terrains and is known for its tough construction, no vehicle is imperceptible to wear and tear over time. Here are common things to look out for in Ford Explorers across the five generations it has been in production.

Transmission
Overheating the transmission is the principal cause of failure, so take heed when ascending a steep hill in high temperatures. Going over the maximum towing load or revving too hard in this case will cause the transmission to overheat. Transmission life expectancy is halved for every 20 degrees over 200 degrees that you go over, so pulling over often to let it cool down or getting a transmission cooler and/or a performance tuner will help protect your transmission.

If your transmission is slipping in between gears, making a clunking, rattling, or grinding noise when accelerating, or having difficulting shifting gears you may need an immediate service. Transmission issues may be a result of various factors. Excess wear on the transmission case or valve body can cause premature breakdown which affects the overdrive and intermediate servo bores. Common fixes include replacing the case by drilling the servo bores and installing a brass sleeve or using a valve body repair kit that fixes the worn out valve body.

Engine
Leaking or low engine oil may cause the engine to misfire, impact fuel economy, and/or cause difficulty in starting the vehicle. If you’ve been adhering to scheduled oil changes, your oil levels and filter are fine, and you still hear a squealing or rattling sound, auto parts such as the timing belt, spark plug, and valve cover gasket should be checked. Powertrain components are quite comprehensive so you may find exactly what you need in our diagrams for engine and transmission parts.

Suspension
Changes to your ride quality, clunking noises while driving, and sluggish responsive handling may signal issues with your suspension system. Other symptoms such as vibration, leaking fluid, or uneven tire wear are also commonly found. Quick parts to check for repair are the steering wheel and column, sway bar bushing, shock absorbers, and sway bar links.
