    Body Mount Shrinkage and Compression

    Sorry to tell you these bolt in the body mounts are much tighter then any 1/4 inch or even 3/8 inch electric impact will remove. Best would be a good 1/2 air impact but a electric 1/2 inch should work..

    Unpredictable Fan

    The normal for the blower motor resistor is the connector gets hot melts the plastic and the spade connectors and or wires melt and make a open. I would check it, easy on the passenger side just below the blower motor see if you can even get it off. If it comes off check all the wires you can...

    With E 85 your going to loose somewhere around 33% of your fuel economy. So if your going 300 miles a tank your going to only go 200 miles per tank.

    ISSUE: 04 s/t - "hiccups" under stress / low RPM

    We need a lot more information on your vehicle, miles maintence done. With what we know now I would look at ignition components like spark plugs and wires. It takes quite a few missfires to set a code.

    2003 Sport Trac. Does not start when it's hot.

    My guess is its a bad connection as it heats up resistence goes up or its the fuel pump its self. Get under the truck and listen for the fuel pump have someone else turn on the key no crank if it runs it should start. If no fuel pump its either the impeller is stuck in the pump ( ethenol eats...

    01 Sport Trac LOTS of weird issues

    OD light flashing is trans is in limp mode, could be a wheel speed sensor or speed sensor that tells the trans to shift, are your shifts harsh? I am pretty sure the trans uses just the rear wheel sensor to shift. But either way you need to pull codes.

    fast turn signal

    Flashing too fast is caused by too much load on the flasher as in too many filiments lite, should only be two filiments one on each end of the vehicle. If there is a shorted bulb it would flash fast on one side. The other side would flash normal as long as the short is not to the power side of...

    Gas milage issues.

    The real fix is warmer weather, with my experience as a engine calibrator at ford motor to make a engine start cold you have to richen the mixture at colder ACT and ECT temps this is using much more fuel during warm up and even normal driving. Air is much Denser at cold ambient which requires...
