Re: Wondering what this thing is

Hi, it’s a resonator used to make the air intake quieter. It’s more technically called a Helmholtz resonator I believe. See https://duckduckgo.com/?q=air+intake+re ... ltz&ia=web

Re: Wrench Light!

Did you use a known good scan tool that has read the codes on your car before? It's possible the code is not in history.

Re: No more Freestyle

Whoa, you are an old-timer here. OK then. I know Hyundai has really ramped up their game in the last 10 years, I think Kia too since it's the same company. I don't have any Kia forums so good luck ;)

Re: 05 Freestyle dash cluster quit but all dash lights are illuminated

$235... a little steep. Considering there is no recalibration, all they have to do is repair some solder points and test it. If you have a real electronics wizard where you live such as a guy that installs remote start systems etc. he may be able to fix it for less. I know a guy who is a total wizar...

Re: 2005 Ford Freestyle limited oil change frequency

If you're using a Motorcraft oil filter you shouldn't need to mess around with changing the filter at the halfway mark. You could potentially go way past 7,000 miles but you would want to do an oil analysis such as https://www.blackstone-labs.com/tests/standard-analysis/ to tell you how much life is...

Re: Stalling

P0171 & P0174 are system lean codes, there are multiple threads here on that. It would have to be a pretty huge vacuum leak to cause stalling, I'd say.

Re: Stalling

Have you scanned for diagnostic codes? I would check fuel pressure next.

Re: 2005 Ford Freestyle limited oil change frequency

You should focus on the actual miles driven since the last change. Do not rely on the electronic readout at this point.

Re: 2005 Ford Freestyle limited oil change frequency

How many miles have you put on since the last oil change? The owners guide calls for 5,000 mile intervals. Was the oil life monitor reset at the last oil change? See https://www.myfordfreestyle.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3356 - if it was not reset when the oil was changed the message you see now may...
