Re: Might be coming up on time to move on

Yeah the more I scour the internet for stuff, the more it looks like it's time to put the thing on Jack stands for a week and just do the thing. I have scanned for trouble codes, none found.

Re: Might be coming up on time to move on

Edit: Yeah it had been a while. Yeah the upper mount is actually pretty easy, and I have a new one (I got it on a killer ebay sale a while back, it's still new in bag) The Brake caliper that's F*#[email protected] is my top priority, even if I do decide to sell it. I've done one before it's not too bad. The oil l...

Might be coming up on time to move on

Well I just got it back from the mechanic, and things aren't looking great for my 05. It needs... well it needs everything that holds it up off the ground, a caliper, and the engine is leaking oil. On top of motor mounts, new spark plugs and coils, all said and done it's either time to dump 6 grand ...

Re: Adding steering wheel music controls to a SE... Not so fast.

I would imagine the Freestyle would not detonate the Passenger side airbag if there was an SRS error considering it's smart enough not to detonate the passenger side airbag in an accident if the chair is empty. I'm not afraid of the Freestyle detonating the passenger side airbag because it thinks th...

Adding steering wheel music controls to a SE... Not so fast.

OK So Spoiler Alert: It didn't effing work. So Ford only makes one clockspring for our cars. You get all the wires either way, and I'm clearly missing the wires going from the clockspring to the radio. BUT, Here's how I was able to install the buttons anyway. Obviously get the wires and the module f...

I put Kicker ds68s in my car and *DIDN'T* replace the head unit and I am more than satisfied.

Re: Will a P245/60R18 (from a 2014 Ford Explorer) Fit in a FS 2006 Limited?

Seems like a gamble. There isn't much room on our cars for larger wheels and tires height wise or steering wise.Also at a glance the offset looks way different (and likely is being a rwd based truck vs a fwd based car) and I'd imagine the bolt pattern is not the same. 2010+ Explorers are FWD/AWD, t...

Re: Here's what towing a 8x4x4 uhaul 3000 miles looks like.

How fast were you driving in the mountains? I've towed a 5x8x6 enclosed trailer all over the place with loads around 2,000 pounds and never had any overheat issue or limp mode. Admittedly I was driving Very Fast in Montana. The speed limit was 80 and I was probably doing it. I was monitoring my tem...

Re: Here's what towing a 8x4x4 uhaul 3000 miles looks like.

A few overheat moments because of the heatwave when I did it. It took longer than I wanted to due to the unrelenting heat. I got used to poping the hood when I went to get gas. 70mph was not too bad. Did have a trans fluid overtemp warning at one point in Montana but pulled over and put it in park f...

The 05s definitely had the speed sensor run to the radio. I have an 05 and Speed Volume works great on my 6 disc changer.

I also replaced a 98 Escort Wagon, except with a Freestyle. Miss that car a lot some days but welcome to the bigger family.

Re: A/C Blower Motor Won't Shut Off!

Might be, but if you find it's a blend motor problem, wait until next week I'll have a tutorial post up on how to change them. I changed mine today.
