I came to FXT from a '92 Explorer, so we probably share some impressions of our new rides How many transmissions did you replace on your Exploader ??? I had to do one at 55k miles

I think I'm going to like FXT a lot more!!!!

Cheers,

PS: Seems to me like some clear plastic tubing, to see bubbles present as you bleed, and a recruited daughter, to press the pedal on command, make the job sufficiently easy to not bother with the SpeedBleeder -- but what do I know
Hey Bob!

I had a 91 Explorer Sport with the 5MT. I had to have a rebuild at 100k miles, but it was going again at 152k. Where the Explorer felt more utilitarian (like a tank) the Forester XT feels like a sophisticated sports car. Two completely different animals...me likes.

The clear tube helps, but air still gets in around the edges making it difficult to tell.
