    Solved rock vs glass

    By the time the discussion stretches and or continued use of the vehicle, lines of the spider web will expand beyond repair. Most US insurance will pay for the fix. It’s a safety concern that shouldn’t consider cost really.

    Coolant reservoir is emptying slowly - 2015

    I had a very slow leak for a very long time. Filled the reservoir and check a month later it was dry. When I was having the AC clutch replaced the garage called and said I needed a radiator. There was a crack in the right side about three inches long and it was so fine the only reason it could...

    negative battery terminal cable keeps coming loose 2002 XLT 4.6L 4WD

    I replaced the pos terminal with one like that but had to get a heavy duty crimper to secure the short cable terminal that side. Also using high temperature bearing grease on the post.

It wasn’t on a seam but exactly in the middle of the right side. Last year I took it in to replace the AC compressor and a great...

    Winter/Snow tires

    Taking one set off and putting another set on and balancing each season for the lifetime of the tires will cost at least a grand. Go to the salvage yard pop for the stock steel wheels.
