#4 of 386 K&N Air Filter

Has anyone installed a K&N Air Filter and if so, did it have an effect on the gas mileage? Also, if a K&N filter is installed, are any other modifications to the exhaust system required?
#5 of 386 Check Engine Light

Update on the Check Engine Light.
Turns out that the thermostat was faulty and it was stuck in the on position. It ran the engine really cool. It was replaced and the problem was solved.

I installed a air filter on my Explorer Sport and I noticed a slight improvement in gas milage. But there was noticeable improvement in acceleration. I installed the box type filter and no modifacations had to be made.
#7 of 386 It's Here!!!!!!!!!!

Got a call from the dealer, my silver ST with tonneau cover is in. Can't believe it is here already. Only took 5 weeks to the day.
Going tonite at 7 PM to pickup. I hope everything I ordered is on it

I was told when I purchased my ST in July that they were developing a class III hitch for the ST and I would be called by the dealership when it was available. Surely, by now a hitch has been developed and is in production. I find it hard to believe that no one has a hitch. Any ideas on why I got this story? Is there a hitch for the ST that is different from the old style Explorer?

hbcarter, I just installed a Hidden Hitch (class III) on my Sport Trac. It's a round tube hitch and it looks awesome. Go to www.MySportTrac.com, click on "Member Projects" then click on "Hidden Hitch" to see pictures of the hitch before and after installation on my Sport Trac.
#10 of 386 Gas mileage tracking
Sep 26, 2000 (5:15 am)
We are tracking Sport Trac gas mileage over at The Sport Trac Web Site. We've got 21 MPG reports entered by visitors so far; you can look at the mileage averages by visitor and option averages like 4x4, tonneau, 4.10, etc. We are not tracking K&N as an option yet, but plan to add it. I encourage you to come on over and submit your gas mileage information, so the entire Sport Trac community can benefit from the information. Go to www.MySportTrac.com and click on "Sport Trac MPG Log" on the site menu.
