    Default 1995 Ford Explorer with a Code 648

    I took my car in because the O/D light was flashing and I was told that it
    was a 648 code for 4th gear indifferent from ratio? Anyways, they told me
    that my 4th gear was starting to slip which would eventually burn out the
    clutch and that I would need to have my transmission rebuilt.

    $1300.00-$2200.00 too much to pay for something like this?

    Plus they told me that my Timing Chain Cover is leaking? What is that?
    And what exactly does it do?

    Any repair of this magnitude deserves a second opinion, in my opinion.

    Ummm.... It's the cover that goes over the timing chain.

    It covers the timing chain! Seriously, that's pretty much it. Of course,
    you probably already figured out to some extent (since it's leaking oil)
    that the chain is in an oil bath and the cover is supposed to seal that from
    the elements.

    Well they rebuilt my transmission. And it drives ok. I am not impressed
    with the service I received from them but hey what can I expect.

    They said that they were able to singe (sp) the bolts to the timing chain
    cover and its not leaking anymore. So, I am hoping that will fix that for
    a while.

    Thanks for your help! I know it seems pretty ridiculous to ask some of
    these questions. But I know absolutely nothing about cars or SUV's, etc..

    It does NOT seem ridicules at all. We all do not know something, and the
    newsgroups are a great way to fill in our knowledge gaps. What was the
    cost to rebuild it? Who did it (dealer, transmission chain like Aamco,
    etc.)?
