How do you disable the baby locks on a 97 Ford
There is a latch inside the frame of the back door. You have to switch
the latch to unlock and they will then allow someone in the back seat
to open the doors.

What oil is used for 1997 ford explorer
Factory says 5W-30.
You can do better with Walmart's full synthetic 5W-30 with a filter and oil change every 5 - 6,000 miles.
Just keep an eye on oil level - the V8 version of this vehicle does use oil after about 120,000 miles. The 6 is a bit better until about 150,000 miles.

My 1997 Ford Explorer XL shakes when I start it. What could it be?
Spraying WD40 on the belt stops it from squeaking, no need to replace it.
If it is misfiring, that will cause a shudder at low RPM.
There is no such think as an intake valve gasket. A manifold gasket on the inlet side, can let air into the mixture and cause misfire. Normally that is fixed by tightening loose nuts on the studs that locate the manifold.
