    Threw P0171 and P0174

    Ok so i have been getting my truck back to where it needs to be and now I have a new issue that is driving me absolutely insane.

    Doing another retro on my 2nd Gen Trac

    (had to resize the images) So I decided that I would start another retro for my 2008 ST mainly due to the fact that i wanted a bit more light output and better aim. I removed to much of the bowl on my last build so my aiming was never perfect, now that i learned my lesson, i have decided to...

    What do you hate or love about owning an ST? Out of curiosity, fun post!

    I have posted this for fun, curious to see what everyone feels about their ST's. The number 1 thing I hate about owning my ST, and it's probably the only thing, is the fact that everything, well nearly everything, for our trucks has to be ordered. Almost every auto parts store locally between my...

    Front and rear turn signals suddenly stopped working

    So this happened about 15 minutes ago while on my way to my doctors office. I turned on my right turn signal and it flashed for a few seconds and then the message board popped up and said to check both the front and rear turn signals...what would cause both to die at the same time?!? I'm...

    Redid my Retrofit on my 08 ST

    So as some of you know I had a really bad accident back in December of 2014 where i was rear ended by a Costco Semi truck and pushed into the rear of an F350. Needless to say my truck suffered over $16k in damage and because none of my airbags went off and the frame didn't bend, my idiot...

    Confused, issue after fuel injectors swapped

    So I had a fuel injector die and a shop belonging to a buddy of mine picked them up and tested and cleaned each one. Turns out that one went bad and it was replaced. Now I put them in and was having an issue where on a cold start the truck was acting like it couldn't get fuel...really weird. But...

    Hey guys, I'm about to replace the struts in my truck and was wondering what you guys have been installing? Or suggest. There doesn't seem to be much of a selection for our ST's. I'm also replacing my rear axle half shaft on the passenger side. I prefer something that can handle good weight...

    Fuel delivery issue

    Has anyone had this issue, your ST sputters between 45-60 mph, and if you're above 70 and give it some gas it jerks before it takes off? My ST has been acting up lately. All 8 spark plugs are new and all 8 coil packs have been changed in the last year and a half. To add insult to Imjury...
