    Motorcraft oil shout out

    I DON'T LIKE THE STATEMENT YOU MADE THAT YOU "THINK IT WAS ....(OIL WEIGHT AND TYPE, ETC.)". NOBODY SHOULD HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OF NOT KNOWING WHAT OILS, ETC. ARE USED ON THEIR VEHICLES ESPECIALLY QUICK-LUBE SHOPS. AND THAT CHEAPO OIL FILTER - YOU COULD HAVE RUINED LOTS OF THINGS. IF I WERE YOU...

    E85 at $3.50@gallon vs 87 octane $6.00@gallon.

    I have totally missed the point of your write-up. You like cleaner air. If you are nuts enough to live in 'Cafalornia', pay the taxes, and keep people like Newsome and sleepy Joe in power, you then deserve to pay $6.60+per gallon whether it's 87 octane or E85 (E85 being one of the most stupid...

    Locking Gas Cap for 22 EX?

    BE CAREFUL IF YOU DO FIND ONE - I.E. MAKE SURE IT IS COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR 'EMISSIONS' MONITORING - YOU MAY GET A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT!!

    2015 XLT - Securicode / Remote Keypad panel issue

    YOU CAN TRY TO ISOLATE THE CIRCUIT BY THE PULL-THE-FUSE METHOD. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A CONTACTLESS AMMETER PUT ONE IN SERIES WITH YOUR BATTERY OR USE THE AMMETER IN YOUR VOM, SET IT ON SAY ZERO TO 5 AMP SCALE- IT SHOULD SHOW LOW CURRENT DRAIN BECAUSE OF THE ELECTRONICS THAT NEED TO REMAIN ENERGIZED...

    Transmission Flush

    I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE TELLS YOU - DO NOT FLUSH THE TRANNY OR 'HAVE' IT FLUSHED. DO THE RECOMMENDED PAN DROP AND FILTER CHANGE AND THE ABOVE REDO OF THE PAN DROP IN 10000 MILES. ALSO, THE SUCK OUT OF A GALLON OF COURSE WITH A FILL OF ONE TOO IS A GREAT IDEA AND I DO TWO QUARTS ABOUT EVERY TWO...

    No fluid when bleeding front driver side brakes

    One and only occurrence of this for me was the fault of the rubber flex hose - the internals became mush and actually blocked the fluid from returning to the system thereby acting like a one-way check valve - and we do not need these!!

    Still missing

    Did I miss the mileage?? How many?? Did you really have a miss before you piled it on with replacement parts or did you honestly introduce a misfire/hiccup with the 'new' parts?

    2002 Explorer 2wd wont engage in reverse

    So, it appears that the tran was 2 qts. low to start with -not terrible but I'm sure it will need a refresher. Might as well get a refresher and the rebuild done at the same time. I just got a rebuild and yes, they are expensive, but the basic car is worth the investment, in my case anyhow.

    2002 Explorer 2wd wont engage in reverse

    Sir, how did you know when the trans was filled enough? Is there an overflow/fill plug near the top/side of the tranny? You indicated about 2 quarts were added by you. I know the method isn't the easiest for this model but there has to be a level-indication-method; plug and hole??

    2002 Explorer 2wd wont engage in reverse

    Hi, Bob, A couple of questions here - What is the temperature the car is at? How did you know how much fluid to use? Are there any perceptible leaks you can see around the trans/torque converter?
