2006 Ford Explorer XLT 4X4 – Needs engine work
• 164,989 miles
• Clean title. No accidents. Second owner. Bought from my employer so I have a LOT of service records.
• I also have digital shop manual (from Ford in 2006 so it requires a computer with a DVD drive to access it).
• Just replaced all exterior door handles and lock actuators, including the lift gate.
• Has a Sony XAV-AX150 stereo with Apple Carplay / Android Auto (also supports a rear camera, which is included, but not installed).
• New Goodyear tires at 148,676 miles.
• Transmission was rebuilt by Knudson (East 14th) at 148,279 miles.
• Front/rear differential and transfer case oils and seals replaced at ~143,289 miles.
• Brake pads, rotors, calipers replaced at 130,990 miles.
• A/C works.
• Radiator, water pump, starter, and alternator have all been replaced.
• Does have rust on the rocker panels below the rear doors (very common for this age), but otherwise in pretty good cosmetic condition.
• This thing is a BEAST in the snow. I needed to drive to Ames twice during the blizzard in January and I chose to drive this instead of a 2021 Explorer 4X4 since this one is much more capable.
• Here is the bad news. The engine recently started making some noise. It still runs fine, but has a rattle coming from the engine. I pulled the serpentine belt to check the idler pulleys (not the problem). It’s likely something in the timing chain system. I believe a tensioner is no longer working and a chain is slapping. If it’s the primary (jackshaft) chain, the balance shaft chain, or even the drivers side cassette it can be fixed w/o pulling the engine. If the passenger side cassette then the engine will need to come out.
• This is a spare vehicle and I don't have time to work on it. This is being sold AS-IS, NO WARRANTY. The price reflects the “needs work” condition (Kelley Blue Book value is $2,700). You can test drive it around the block, but that’s all. Assuming the timing chain has slack then extended or higher speed driving risks the chain jumping (and engine damage).
• If you have the tools and skill set to repair this you can get a solid vehicle for a great price. Alternately, you could part it out. Heck, the rebuilt transmission alone is worth ~$2,000 and wheels/tires another $500.
Cash only.
