Re: Wrench Light!

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.
My steering rack just failed a few months ago after over 300k.

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!

Well pray :) .....and if in one month you have no issues you are in the clear....you should test it do for an hour at least on highway at a constant speed 60-70mph or 100-120kph to make sure the pump is ok.

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.

Re: Wrench Light!

Yes it can......the fluid level should not be above mark when cold....when the fluid reaches operating temperature it increase its volume even more and the fluid pressure from the pump is increased as well, plus the fluid starts to become foamy. Take some of the fluid out and take a longer drive, if...

Re: AC Compressor

In most of the cars you can bypass it I did it to a Chevy and a Dodge is not scientific as there are no belts made for the car not including AC idler pulley....I took a string and run it around the pulleys without going over the AC pulley with the belt tensioner at 1/2 tight position and took the me...

Re: Flashing interior lights

Sorry didn t encounter this issue, even do I have a tire sensor that gives me lost signal sometimes at highway speeds.
Your best bet will be to pay the $65 for the diagnostics and then visit a junkyard and get the module you need.

Re: Wont switch to defrost

You need quite a bit of torque to move the door.....the reason the motor gets broken is that the teeth and linkages are plastic and that plastic ages, given the torque needed they break.
I will say take the risk and replace the motor is only $40 or cheaper on ebay.

Re: Wont switch to defrost

No door being stuck is not a common issue, for sure what you did is not creating any safety issue. My wife X at this point blows air only from front vents , no defrost or floor vents....it is to cold to work on it so I am waiting for the spring. In your case I think the gears moving the door are stu...

Re: Wont switch to defrost

Does the airflow comes only from front vents no matter what you select?
If yes it is the actuator motor.
Try to run the diagnostic for the climate control is a combination of buttons I forgot it search here on forum it will give you a fault code.

Re: Changing Navigation panel

Yes it is possible but to much of a pain, you should get also the wireing from the donor car, also the gps antena, the reason you need to consult the dealer is to see if your car had the gps system as an add on, if it did the wireing is there ....if it is not you have to change the radio harness
