Re: Codes p2196 and p2198

I would suggest that the reason is too high fuel pressure in the fuel rail. First, I would test the vacuum line between the fuel pressure sensor and the intake manifold. Then I would measure the fuel pressure with a pressure gauge.

Re: Passsenger door lock not working as power lock - where to start?

In a couple of days, I’ll receive a front passenger door lock actuator from China.

Re: Bullbar for the freestyle?

I did not interest this theme for a long time, but it seems to me that my stores are worse than yours. I still have a photo of the crankcase protection. I did not install it because it is too heavy (16kg / 36lbs). ford_freestyle_crankcase_shield1.jpg ford_freestyle_crankcase_shield.jpg There would b...

Re: Bullbar for the freestyle?

Some years I'm trying to find time to remove the bullbar, 'footboard' and 'lifting' 1 "(I think you know why) .They are made from universal parts for tuning from stainless steel. These spare parts are many in stores. Perhaps the 'footboards' fit from volvo xc90 because they have the same wheelbase. ...

It seems to me that spam appears every time I reply in the forum. Can my phone have a virus or does my google-chrome browser include a virus?

Re: Electrical issues 2005 Ford Freestyle

A bit of theory: -PCM uses an air temperature sensor to adjust the voltage of the generator. Therefore, it may be necessary to replace the mass airflow sensor. - Sometimes the contacts on the back of the Battery Junction Box are oxidized. It is necessary to remove the BJB and check contacts of fuse ...

Re: Running so rich you can.light exhaust fumes on fire

Pay attention to the catalytic converters. They could overheat, melt and clog up as a result of misfiring. You can slightly detach the catalysts from the exhaust manifold (at least the front bank2) and see the result. Perhaps we should be grateful to Ford for taking care of our wallets, because PCM ...

Re: Correct Oil Drain Plug Replacement Part Number?

By the way, you can use a standard bolt M12 * 1.75-30mm (1.18 ") and a copper washer or rubber + steel washers. If the threads of thread are damaged, then you can try using a bolt M12 * 1.75-40mm (1.57"). You will spend less than $ 0.5. These bolts are without magnets, but do magnet need for the 13-...

Re: Range sensor

I would change the range sensor only after making sure it's faulty. Theoretically range sensor is very reliable and works little. I would first check the serviceability of the sensor by removing the transmission pan or make cable length adjustment. But if you disassemble all cvt, then you will not n...

Auxiliary coolant pump repairing

I am not a blogger and photographer, but I think this is useful information for those who have a car equipped with an additional rear heater. Such cars have an auxiliary coolant pump (bosch) under hood. auxiliary_coolant_pump.png This pump probably does not work. This is the reason for the cold in t...

Re: Need Help 08 Taurus X ball joint play

I understand what you're talking about. When I was repairing the rear suspension, I could only change the bushings. The ball joint was in good condition, but it seemed to me that it is impossible to extrude. That's why I would buy a used wheel knuckle from awd car (fwd cars do not have ball joint)
