Re: Spammer in Trex

We got hit like crazy yesterday. Trying to ban email addresses on signup, etc to help stop them from getting that far. We have a couple of great moderators here but if anyone else would like to volunteer to remove spam from the forum I would be open to making more people mods. More eyeballs = faster...

Re: Engine Seized? 2005 Ford Freestyle Limited AWD

Welcome. Tow truck drivers are not mechanics! It could be an electrical issue that's causing a no crank condition. I would do more diagnosis before assuming the engine is blown. It may be, but there are things you can do before just replacing it. Scan for diagnostic codes. Visually inspect wiring an...

Re: 2018 source for a hood deflector for a new-to-me Taurus X?

Could try www.greensalescompany.com as they sell obsolete Ford parts. I think there are some other sources like them but usually the others deal with really old parts (from decades ago).

Re: Correct Oil Drain Plug Replacement Part Number?

p.s. The oversized one you do not want unless required. That means some gorilla overtightened the drain plug and stripped the threads. That means you need to drill & tap a larger size than stock.

Re: Correct Oil Drain Plug Replacement Part Number?

Did you look at Dorman's own site? You could also lookup @ RockAuto to see. If it's cheap enough, just buy one of each so you have the right one.

Re: Trailing Arm / Lateral Link

Jacking won’t help. Perhaps use a pry bar to push things together so the hole lines up??

Re: P2195 CEL

I don't think that will help you. Look for one with graphing capability. I recommend BlueDriver @ https://amzn.to/2wDgfwx that's my go-to scan tool. It does a LOT.

If I was you, I'd put in the correct O2 sensor from the Ford dealership. Aftermarket sensors may be inferior.

Re: P2195 CEL

Did you use a Ford/Motorcraft sensor? https://www.obd-codes.com/p2195

Use a scan tool to watch the live readings of that and other sensors.

It's been quite a few years since they made these vehicles and not many people hang out on forums when they're vehicles are working properly ;)

Re: Recently bought a ford freestyle Blue smoke

See https://www.obd-codes.com/p0420 The blue smoke is only kinda sorta related to the P0420 code. The p0420 is telling you that the catalytic converter isn't performing at optimal efficiency. Were there any other diagnostic codes? Converters don't fail, they're killed. So don't replace it until you ...

Re: 2018 Ford Freestyle What Was Ford Thinking?

That thing is tiny in comparison. Ford was thinking that they’ll never bring the Freestyle back to the US so they have a nameplate to use :? . India is a huge market.

Re: O2 Oxygen Sensor? 06 Freestyle P0133 P0138

The sensor likely needs replacing but if you have access to a scan tool you should monitor live sensor readings to see what's actually happening. Do not buy a cheap aftermarket sensor IMHO, stick with Motorcraft. Check RockAuto.com to confirm part #s.
