    My ABS Problems Continue

    just asking because an "old school mechanic" buddy of mine was having all sort of screwed up issues on the 2002 mustang ABS, he was telling me all about it. I told him if he brought it over to my shop, I would be happy to look at it for him. When he drove up, he had huge tires on the back...

    How is it possible?

    Mine felt like they were welded into the heads. But be careful (hence 2 hours), and drive on. :)

    Think Outside The Box

    I had all of these same symptoms. scan, replace, scan, replace. I finally had to think outside the box. It turns out, that by replacing my stock TPS with a TPS from and 01 mustang v-6, fixed all my issues. (shrug). I have a write up in (modified 1995-2002 whatever explorers). 01 sport...

    How is it possible?

    I did my plugs on the 01 sport I just got this past weekend. took me two darn hours. (finally figured the inner wheel well removal on passenger side trick). mine were original plugs, and it was still running good. HOWEVER!!! 4 of the 6, the small "node" was burned down even with the plug...

    How to: Overhead console display fix - 2nd Gen

    just did mine on my 01 sport this past weekend. had 1 of them that the end was actually sticking up, and one of the legs going to the display was also broken. soldered both of them, and the "leg" performs great now. Thanks again.

    For those who've installed HID fog lights, how the heck do you plug them in?

    when I did mine, I had to buy the actual HID kit (vehicle specific). the connectors on the HID ballast plugged right in, but the HID bulbs won't just plug and play. they do make a 9006 HID wanna be (Not True HID) bulbs, that do not require a ballast, that will plug and play.

    shifting issue 01 Sport

    Perseverance furthers. It is fixed. I had it scanned again, this time said TPS and Air Intake Temp Sensor ( incorporated into MAF). I had already bought a new TPS, a couple of days before. Advance said it could have been a bed one, so they exchanged it. No difference. so I thought clogged...

    shifting issue 01 Sport

    I have already put a new tranny filter/pan gasket, and refilled with fluid (almost zero on contaminants metal, dirt etc) in the pan. very clean. It was doing this when I got it, and the filter change made no difference. I've been wrenching for over 30 years, and this has me stumped... any...

    Tranny won't kick down. HELP!!
