    #2 plug

    :confused: ¿HUH? :confused: I did put the tune up grease, MY GOD I WORK AT AUTO ZONE and I put it on last time when I had taken them off. This one CAME PRE GREASED and that wasn't necessary but anyways, when I changed my plugs i greased my boots last time. As well, It still got stuck on there.

    #2 plug

    That is actually what I did 5k ago when I changed just teh plugs. But these knew ones came with a "goober" of dielectric grease (aka silicone) already on them. Thank you though. Sometimes this stuff just happens.

    #2 plug

    Thanks guys I finnaly got it with Channel locks. MAN I can't belive the difference. I didn't think there would be any. I only have 71k by the odometer (73 maybe 74 in reality due to my bigger tires) I bought the Bosch plug wires at AZ an MAN I can't belive it!

    Clunk and Rattle from front wheel well area

    Sounds like a loose nut behind the wheel. Fix that and you will fix everything. Or well, at least that is what I tell all my customers no matter what the problem :D:D:D:D

    Plastic under Radiator

    What does that big plastic thing under the radiator actually do if anything. (I took mine off yesterday to get back my 3/8 drive ratchet I dropped in the fan shroud while changing the belt. I have been too lazy to put it back. If it serves no real purpose I won't do it for a while. If it...

    Tax help

    Thank you But that is just federal. I would really like to know what it is I am going to keep (after federal, state, SS and everything) but I don't guess there would be a website for that. I would actually pay money to use one like that. A calculator that you just tell it where you are going...

    32x11.50 or 33x10.50

    I love my 32 x 11.50s but if I had it to do over again I would get 33 x 11.50s. I have to have the width. I like the look because it also makes it look more agressive. Also, without width you have no grip. You will notice a big difference in ride height with 32's Even though it doesn't seem...

    Towing 2500 lbs

    Why the &*() are you guys pulling a trailor in OD. That is the quickest way to burn the transmissoin up even if you are geared at 4.10.

    ¿Intake valve sticking?

    No one gonna even try to answer this one. I tis kind of a bump bump sound that you can tell is echoing through the intake air tubes. It might just be the IAC valve opening and closing or something. It only does it when it is cold. When the engine warms up you can only hear it on a...

    ¿Intake valve sticking?

    Okay, today I started up my Ex. I have the 4.0 SOHC and a home made cold air intake involving a K&N cone shaped filter and some plumbing fittings. Anyways, upon deceleration (as it's idling down) i noticed this echoing bump bump sound. It almost sounded like a valve sticking or something but...

    Truck of the Week! Johnstone's Sport Trac 1/19/04

    I just wish so bad I just wish so bad that I had a laptop with a program and a port for the OBDII port for a re-programmer. But I can just imagine the mega $$$$$ that would cost.

    '03 Sport with awful gas mileage

    Sounds a little Sounds just a little worse than what it should be. I have a 2000 4x4 4 door with 32's and I get 14-18 driving the same. But, I run synthetic and have home made FILPK system. Hey what is your gear ratio. If you have 4.10s that is about right man 'cause I got 3.73's. Also, are...
