Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

PATS = Passive Anti-Theft System. It means the keys with the transmitter in them. PATS is incorporated into the vehicle PCM which is located under the hood. This means when you do the swap, the keys from the donor car must follow the PCM into your car.

Re: CVT Alternate

All of the AWD cars (both 500 and FS) are CVT so if you put in the Aisin 6-speed, you must convert to FWD.

The so-called "after burner" cat is the most common one that gets plugged up in my experience.

I do it every 50K miles and change the HP filter at that time as well.

Re: Airbag removal 05-07

Yes that is what is holding it on. It always comes off pretty easily for me, it's getting it to catch when reinstalling that gives me trouble.

Re: CEL

Check the boot from the air filter to the TB for cracks. You have an air leak somewhere.

Re: looking for Backup Camera System Without Head Unit

I got mine on Amazon. The screen is embedded in the rear view mirror. They are easy to find and cheap.

Re: CVT Pan Filter FT162......Official Site Decision please

Just use the Ford filter, why take a chance to save a couple of bucks? You only need to change it every 60K miles.
