Drove home, garbage pick-up missed our house. Grab the can, and put in back of Ford Sport Trac..tried to catch the garbage truck down a dirt road. When all of a sudden the front hood on my Sport Trac came open.also having problems when turning on air-conditioner.I beleive same type of parts or components used in previous years Ford Explorer Sport...ranging back to 98 or further.probably same types recalled or complained about in those years problems with defects..I have found that my 2001 Ford Sport Trac was actually made in late year of 2000.

While traveling from williamsburg/new port news, va my engine light came on and I pulled off the road to have the problem looked at. It is a poor flow for the egr valve. According to documentation in various engine reference books failure of the valve could cause erratic engine surges and potential other related problems to include failure of the power plant. There are apparently no replacement parts available for the 4.0L V-6 which is a common engine in the Ranger and Explorer models. The vehicle currently has 42000 highway miles and receives regular maintenance. I am concerned about the low life of this part under normal wear and tear and conditions, as well as the safety and environmental impact that the part failure could cause.
