Something like this. https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/motormedic-motor-flush/6000077654272 Before you change the oil with the car parked and engine warmed up you dump this in the engine even ( don t worry about overfilling ) let the engine idle for 15 min , DO NOT REV THE ENGINE .....DO NOT DRIVEIT........

Re: Bad engine knock

It might be a valve slap.....the engine has hydraulic valve lifters, if one is not working properly it will create a space between the valve and valve lifter and create a taping noise, when the oil is warm is thin enough to circulate. Before any expensive repairs use some internal cleaner to clean a...

Re: Abs, parking brake, traction control and Check break system warnings!

Your error comes from the wheel speed sensors , most likely the rear wheel ones, you might have damaged one or bith of the rear wheel bearings or just the sensor in the wheel bearing housing, go to a shop and get a reading and see what wheel triggers the codes

Re: Swapped bad engine now no vrooom! Help!

Sorry to say but you might need to end up to replace the engine....the bigest mistake you did was by not going to replace the engine from another scraped TRex....lincoln engine can have different sensors and different calibration ECU as they were rated a bit more in HP output...

Re: Dual question: Hood Rattle and engine swap

Why you want to do that? It will be cost prohibitive......it will be cheaper to buy a used car with the motorization you want
