Re: Rotors and pads recommendations?

05 AWD SEL

I recently had Rotors and pads done I decided to spend some extra money so they would
last and not have the common issues of Rotors warping.

I went with Motorcraft all the way, like the old saying goes you get what you pay for .

Yes I used Techron didn't notice any better fuel economy or acceleration. I also recommended using top tear gasoline brands . I switched over to BP from using Citco better Mpg and performance.

Re: Which fuel Injector cleaner is safe to use?

I am using the BG 44K Fuel Injector with amazing results, only need to use this once or twice a year, read the reviews and judge for yourself.

Sticking Vent Control Buttons

05 AWD SEL Now that cold weather is here I am having an issue with one on the vent buttons sticking. I press it and it gets stuck and doesn't release when selecting another vent button. Is there a spray I can use to prevent this from happening or is the button bad and need replacing. Thanks Scott

Re: Inner Rear Well Liner Replacement

Thanks for the update, going to head over to my local body shop to see what
they will charge to re-undercoat also notice the other side starting to fall apart as
well.

Will see if they can use the rubberized type which holds up better.

Inner Rear Well Liner Replacement

2005 AWD SEL

I notice the other day that the rear drivers side inner wheel well
liner is falling apart, does anyone know the best way to fix this.

Is there a liner replacement available or is this just undercoating that FORD used.

Thanks
