Hi guys and gals. New to this community. We are thinking of purchasing a 99 Eddie Bauer Explorer with only 60K on it, most of those towing, for dirt cheap.

So I have a few questions. It has the SOHC 4.0L engine. Runs smooth right now. However we have a Crown Victoria with the 4.6L that lives up to the fixed or repaired daily acronym. Spits out spark plugs every other day. So I don't want any more headaches like that. Any known issues with the 4.0? I browsed the topics quickly and didn't see anything standing out.

It sounds like a good deal.
The biggest concern for most folks is the timing chain in the Ford 4.0l SOHC engines. Loads of info on the web.
But with only 60k I would be comfortable with it.
My 98 has 200k and it has been OK so far.
Good luck!
