    GT40P passenger manifold

    I had both sides done at a local garage last July. Ford manifolds were 125 each. Labor was 300. EGR valve and tube was like another 140. Pricey but worth it,bunch of studs broke on them. Then 6 months later the pass side craked again..they replaced it no charge. I had a year warranty.

    2001 Mountaineer ABS issue

    my 01 exploder is doing the same thing right now. More then likely it is the senor. My bearings are fine but that said on my 95 the only way the same problem was fixed was to put new hubs on it. i have new hubs for this but i have been to lazy to change them. I never had a abs light either. What...

    I have done some extensive searches and it seems, aside from the nasty common problem of spark plugs breaking off inside the block (I'm prepared for this), yep.

    annoying cruise control switch lightbulb!

    A neat way to strip wire is to heat it for just a few seconds with a bic lighter then pinch the insulation with the nails of two fingers and pull it right off. Works really well once you catch on to it. I do it with bigger wires now even.

    strange noise.

    Ok driving down the road at 50 or better I sometimes get this crackling noise that drives me crazy. It sounds like leaves in my blower box or something but that is not it because I turn off all the controls and that changes nothing. The faster I go the worse it gets at times. Then sometimes it...

    '99 eddie bauer 5.0 AWD upgrades

    The 5.0 does ok stock. If you really want to do something instal the pick up transfer case so that you will have low range. Anything else is just trying to make it a race car and imo that is fruitless.

    Synthetic vs regular oil

    98 Speedometer intermittent bouncing, OD out, Cruise out no lights/codes

    If it was one of the front sensors you would think the abs light would come on. I know if you pull the abs fuse the abs light will come on and the speedo will not work on my 2001..nor will the cruise work. I'm chasing pulsing abs and I ended up for now just unplugging one lead from the abs...
