Re: O2 Sensors stuck lean

Re: Wrench Light!

You are correct, it is/was a common issue, still way better than a transmission failure.

There is no reason not to use it crosscountry if worked well for a while, those engines and transmissions are one of the best....besides the water pump in engine crap.

Re: New User Introduction

Welcome and enjoy your stay , there are not many X 's left around, they are good cars......watch yours for PTU leaks and stay on top with regular maintenance, it should last you to 250k easy.

Re: Wrench Light!

If you don t use a pump only 5L come out, just replace 5l take a trip and after one week do a change again with another 5l, make sure you use original Ford transmission fluid.....and please return here and let us know how it went.
