Re: dash lights

Does anyone know exactly how many bulbs in total the cluster has and is it worth it replacing them before they burn out.


I'm having a shop repair my cluster that's having speedo issues thought it might be a good time to do it.


Your thoughts.

Thanks

Scott

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 .

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
