I have a 2002 Ford Explorer xlt 4.6l. I bought the repair manual for it. Now I change numerous head gaskets before. But the manual gives me instructions to remove the lashes and for that I will need a valve spring compressor. I need to know if that is true. Can I remove heads without having to remove the lashes. Doesnt make sense why I should have to. Wont begin without this info.need my car asap.Please help. Thanx
I'm happy to help, Alex! I suggest following your repair manual for any repairs to your vehicle. The procedures in a repair manual are provided as a best practice for replacing parts on your vehicle. A mechanic may be able to tell you if this is necessary for your 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4.6L V8. If you would like the advise of a mechanic, please try our 'Need expert help?' link further down this page. You may also find additional advice about the Explorer from an enthusiast forum or owner's club.
This Fel-Pro Valve Cover Gasket Set (Part No. VS 50564 R) is a great choice for your vehicle. Don't forget to replace any lost coolant. For the green coolant, Peak Conventional Green (Part No. PKA0G3/12016) is a standard ethylene glycol coolant. If you have the gold or yellow coolant, Zerex G-05 coolant is the best option and is available at Carquest.
