Satisfied With Sport

July 7, 2008 about Ford Explorer

I have a 98 Explorer Sport, It has 299018 miles on it today (7/7/08) Bought it new with 13 miles on it Sept 98. I run nothing but synthetic oil and the engine and trany are both tight as a drum. Everytime I take it in for oil change my mechanic is astounded. Had to have the gaskets replaced on the fuel intake manifold because they rotted out at 210000 miles. This was my first Explorer and I have heard of other problems with the trany but the engine in this vehicle was manufactured in Germany and the trany in France. The only other maint has been battery, alt and replaced all of the front end parts with new shocks all over. Of course tires have been purchased twice. Belts and hoses also replaced as required. By the way I am a retired Jet engine mechanic and female. I believe in good maintenance practices and if gas wasn't so expensive I would love to have another one but Ford will likely drop them as well.

Well apparently you have issues with your manhood. Where does she say she's whining? Thought it was well written, you need counseling buddy.

&#oy.0;8nl22” That is why Buzzgirl and I selected a location that is completely BART-able for me. I know there is no way possible that I want to drive into SF tomorrow (anti-war rally) and try to find parking.
