#381 of 386 Looking at 2002 Sportr Trac - Deals, Deals, Deals
Oct 26, 2001 (2:04 pm)
Guys and Gals, my lease is coming up on my 99 Expedition (was $2000 down and $325/month) and am now looking to purchase a Explorer Sport Trak. I've seen many deals in the paper, but am curious as what is possible. Looks like $100 over invoice and great financing. Pls share with me your successes in negoitiating a great price.
#382 of 386 dwilliams7 and stalling
Nov 15, 2001 (6:49 pm)
I've experienced the same thing, but mine is a 2001 with 5 speed auto. I've heard there is a TSB on 1999 with the SOHC, but I haven't looked it up yet.
From what I've heard, it is a valve sticking, but I'm skeptical because this is a 1999 problem and I would think that the problem would have been solved on the SportTrac during manufacturing.
I'll look it up (I have a buddy that has all the ALLDATA records, and if I find the TSB, I'll post it.

No luck on finding a TSB or with the dealer service department. I guess that I'll keep driving it until it quits completely or fixes itself. It does seem like it ikles a bit low when cold, and a buddy that has another 2001 says his seems to idle low too. Anyone experienced this?

I read your two entries with reference to your sport trac stalling. Are you still having this problem? I see the last entry you made was in june so what was the final result? I too have had this problem with a 2002 sport trac, manual transmission!!!!!!!!!

I'm thinking about buying the Sport Trac. I live in Colorado, one of the questions I have is, how does it handle going up mountains. Can it hold a reasonable speed going up those mountains. Other than that are you happy with yours.
#386 of 386 Sport Trac - Rear vent window
Jan 23, 2002 (12:35 pm)
I want to keep the rear window vented (open about 2 inches at top) during rain. Anyone know where I can find something to mount above and across the top of the vent window to prevent rain from coming in? Maybe I missed it in mysporttrac.com Thank you.
