Talking 93 explorer xlt 2 wl dr with broken ac.+

Hi Everyone and thanks in advance for any help suggestions and advice. I just purchased a 93 explorer xlt 2 wl dr with ac. 148,000 miles. Last car got totaled. SOOOooo this car has a few problems.
1.) First no ac working. Iím told (among other things) it needs a new radiator. How hard is that to put in? I might try myself. I found one for 147.00. Is that a good price for part only?
2.) Rear hatch door has a broken arm ball joint. How do I fix that? Where do I find this ball joint?
3.) My gas gage always says I am empty, even with a full tank of gas. How do you suppose I fix that?
4.) My passenger power side mirror is broken; I have one coming in from E-bay. How do I install it?
5.) My rear seat driverís side inside door handle is broken. I have one coming in from E-Bay, How do I install it?
6.) My side mirror power button is not working. I replaced the fuse and it started smoking. Fuse got blown again.
7.) Last but not least, My brain needs fixing, because I bought this explorer, how do I fix that
Thank Yaíll

Is there anything on this vehicle that still works?


1.) First no ac working. Iím told (among other things) it needs a new radiator. How hard is that to put in? I might try myself. I found one for 147.00. Is that a good price for part only?

---- Confused here; does your vehicle over heat or leak antifreeze? Regarding the A/C: Do you hear the compressor click on when you select it?

2.) Rear hatch door has a broken arm ball joint. How do I fix that? Where do I find this ball joint?

--- Are you talking about the piston end that raises the hatch?

3.) My gas gage always says I am empty, even with a full tank of gas. How do you suppose I fix that?

--- Replace your fuel sending unit which is attached to the fuel pump, in the tank. Requires pump change most likely.

4.) My passenger power side mirror is broken; I have one coming in from E-bay. How do I install it?

-- Remove the plastic piece on the inside of the door with a screw driver, then remove the screws holding the mirror on.

5.) My rear seat driverís side inside door handle is broken. I have one coming in from E-Bay, How do I install it?

--- Remove inside door handle by removing any screws then start pulling the plastic panel off. You will then have access to the interior of the door.

6.) My side mirror power button is not working. I replaced the fuse and it started smoking. Fuse got blown again.

-- Could be the result of the broken mirror shorting it out. Do not replace fuse until mirror is fixed


WOW! This was not in great detail, but tackle one part at a time and report back here with questions.

HI Mark,
1.) First no ac working. Iím told (among other things) it needs a new radiator. How hard is that to put in? I might try myself. I found one for 147.00. Is that a good price for part only?

---- Confused here; does your vehicle over heat or leak antifreeze? Regarding the A/C: Do you hear the compressor click on when you select it?

The compressor works and blows. But it's not cold. The radiator has holes and leaks.
2.) Rear hatch door has a broken arm ball joint. How do I fix that? Where do I find this ball joint?

--- Are you talking about the piston end that raises the hatch?

There r 2 rear lifts to hold up door. 1 of the lifts can not be installed because the ball it latches onto attached to the explorer is broken off. I thought it was callewd a ball joint

Thank YOU SO much for the help.
