Re: Ford Five Hundred Passenger side a/c warm (Dual zone hvac)

I just don't understand why it's still coming out ambient after replacing it unless the door is physically broken.

Re: Wrench Light!

If the transmission still does the same thing after changing the fluid I have a strong feeling it's the tss and oss sensors.

Re: Ford Five Hundred Passenger side a/c warm (Dual zone hvac)

I looked in the repair manual and it showed the driver's side blend door motor on the driver side along with the zone door motor and on the passenger side there's the passenger side blend door motor and the re circulation door motor.

Re: 200000 miles

My mom's Five Hundred has 216,000 miles. I'm fifteen now but we've owned it since 2010 with 60,000 miles so I haven't been able to maintain it perfectly, it's in rough shape but it's still going.

Re: 2007 ford freestyle help!!

I have a strong feeling it's the mecatronic unit in the transmission (Valve Body). I've heard this situation time and time again. The TCM is built into the valvebody and is very sensitive to dirty fluid.

Re: 2006 freestyle with 87000 miles, WONT START

just as a side note if the engine does not turn over a real quick trick is put it in neutral and see if it starts you would be surprised how common this is if it does start it should be a pretty simple fix

Re: Intermittent p0701 HELP! 2006 ford five hundred AWD

Just as a follow up I just changed the oil and the front and back engine mounts and I already did both roll restrictors I still haven't changed the one on the transmission just trying to let my mom choose if its worth it to change the trans fluid and filter again
