    added coolant, now temp gauge reads colder

    thanks for the reply. i wasnt sure if the temp gauge was actually a "real" gauge, or just an idiot light. so i guess everything is normal then. the shop didnt diagnose any problems, they just made sure my fluids were at the correct levels, so they just added the quart of coolant and called...

    added coolant, now temp gauge reads colder

    i had a service station change my oil & filter 2-3 weeks ago and they also checked all of my other fluids. they noticed that my power steering was a little bit low, so they topped that off, and they noticed that my overflow bottle was empty - that's how they checked my coolant level. even...

    BFG all terrain t/a - tire pressure

    thanks for all the input guys. i've always had street/performance tires on my trucks until this past weekend. the guy was trying to tell me that these bfg's are not at all like the tires i used to have on there (pirelli scorpion zeroes), and that the bfg's should be at approximately 50 psi...

    power driver seat dying?

    thanks for the replies guys, and section, thanks for the vid clip :) i'm pretty sure mine isnt an issue with the seat belt. i'm gonna pop off the plastic cover when i get a chance and check out the rails; if the rails are clear, ill play with the switch and the wires and go from there...

    power driver seat dying?

    yup. whether i'm in the seat or not has no bearing on this issue. it does the same thing either way. the more i think about it, the more annoyed i'm getting, and if we didnt get a ton of rain that flooded out basically all of NY, i'd go rip it apart tonight, heh.

    power driver seat dying?

    bump. everyone i ask says to look REALLY WELL under the seat and in the rails for loose change - apparently its not uncommon for a penny or a dime to get lodged in there, but short of taking the whole damn seat out, i dont know if i'm really gonna get a good look in there. anyone?

    i broke the radiator drain plug!

    so i go to drain my coolant from the radiator, and the stupid plastic drain plug on the radiator breaks. i barely even twisted on it, and the head popped right off! i'm so annoyed right now. i can only imagine what ford is gonna want for a new one. to everyone else who did this (and i KNOW...

    power driver seat dying?

    my power driver seat seems to be dying on me. i can make the seat go all the way back, but when i try to move it forward, itll only go up to about the halfway point and the motor just stops (i'm talking about going forward and backward, NOT reclining.) i couldnt really see too well, i dont...

    coolant change, flush, new hoses?

    So i would just dump it in the radiator, run the engine for a little while, shut the engine off, let it cool down, then drain the system, change the hoses, then dump in the new coolant? that's it? i dont need to run straight water through it to rinse out all the "flush" stuff? well, i guess...

    how many quarts when dropping tranny pan?

    when i drop my tranny pan to change the fluid, how many quarts do i need to dump in when i put the pan back? (i thought it was about 3, but i wanna confirm this.) do i have to put back EXACTLY the amount that i took out, or can it be off by fractions of a quart?...and if so, what are those...

    who makes a 31" tire for a 17" wheel?

    i want "off road" tires, not street tires anymore. im at the point where i might consider selling my rims and going back to stock 16" X rims just so i can throw some 31" bfg's on there. not sure yet though - im gonna have to wait until i have some extra cash to blow, im just doing the research...
