Hi there, got new problem. Early symptom is rough idle right after started, RPM goes to 2000RPM, drops down to 500, and then climbs back to normally 800.

Re: Anyone tried aftermarket dash GPS/DVD/Bluetooth?

I'll have a tow hitch installed behind the bumper cover. So the camera has to be somewhere close to the license plate/lamp. Doesn't sounds hard though. Just need some time to try it.

Re: Anyone tried aftermarket dash GPS/DVD/Bluetooth?

I'll add a rear camera too. How to route the cable properly to the radio cabin?

Maybe need the antenna extension cable too?

Re: Anyone tried aftermarket dash GPS/DVD/Bluetooth?

Wow, great I asked. A lot cheaper. I also saw this brand on ebay but not listed as compatible with Freestyle. Does it matter? Or I just need to buy the matching connector adapter and double DIN install kit separately?

Re: Is it necessary to change the filter with CVT fluid change?

Just to add a bit: The pan drain plug on my car was T40 bit. I screwed it with a T40 bit and rounded up. Squeeze in a 6mm Allen head and turned it finally. Tried to order a new bolt from Ford dealer but they need to get from Detroit so I didn't wait. To pull out the high pressure filter I used a rin...

Re: Is it necessary to change the filter with CVT fluid change?

For the question in the title, yes! of course! definitely! It saves the car! Please change the high pressure filter EVERY time CVT fluid is drained and refilled. Please let your garage and dealership know the details in this old post. I wish I had read it in 2012, when the fluid was changed on my Fr...

Three years ago the CVT fuild was replaced but I am not confident they did the filters right. Do you have details on how to change the Pan F...

Re: 2007 CVT cold start issue

I come again for the aniversary of the same problem. Called Ford dealer and they said cannot find mechatronic pat at all. I'll have to keep it fozen in winter and drive in other seasons. Don't want to junk it or sell it. Only 71k miles. Will keep it to remind me every winter....
