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)

Re: Need Help 08 Taurus X ball joint play

I would try to find a used knuckle. If necessary, you can replace bushing.

Re: What is the normal voltage range for the EGR DPFE signal

Did you read this article already (p. 51)? To determine the cause of the malfunction, a test in motion is required. But most likely the DPFE sensor is working. First I would clean and test the vacuum tubes between the EGR valve and the intake manifold, PS I found bad electrical contact in my EGR val...

Re: Radio resetting on my '06 Freestyle

I would check (and process with a spray for electrical contacts) the connector of radio.And also I would check the fuse F2.11 in the Smart Junction Box.It is possible that this fuse feeds the memory of radio.

Re: Transmission Issue?

I start it and put it in reverse and it revs up but doesn't move.. I had the code read and it comes back the pcv valve. Can this be causing all this issue? Any idea? .. I wonder what kind of OBD-code you got? PCM cannot determine directly the fault of PCV-valve (even heating). But you can easily wa...

Re: Radiator Replacement Tutorial?

Several years ago I took off the radiator to clean the mosquitoes. But for some reason I had to do it not by instructions. I removed the radiator along with the cvt radiator (either it was easier together, or I wanted the cvt radiator to rinse too) Electric Engine Fan Removal & Installation: Disconn...

Re: Original Installed Fog Lights Lens Glass or Plastic

I was wondering if the original installed FOG lights on Freestyle were made by ford or an aftermarket brand and did they have glass or plastic lens. OEM fog lights made by Valeo(Belgium) It seems to me that all aftermarket and OEM foglights have glass lenses. There are hundreds of analogues of our ...

Re: Water in tube between valve cover and intake hose

At us the temperature was less than-30F but such freezing of tubes was not. It seems to me that this is not an inoffensive situation. There is no crankcase ventilation. The PCV valve may be clogged or broken or its heating defective. The result can be an increase of air pressure in the crankcase. Th...

Two issues: one is incorrect pressure in the intake manifold, and the other is incorrect EGR input. Are these separate issues or related?
I think yes. Check the small tubes between the EGR valve and the intake manifold.Image
