    Why MFT stinks

    What I hate the most is lack of options. You have to choose one at the beginning and you are stuck with it. No aftermarket radio. Which makes you spend more money to get the upgraded sound system.

    How To Add (98-01) Lighted Side Mirrors on a (95-97)

    Hmm well Im guessing ford used a white wire for your mirror than a red. The left "driver" side mirror on mine had Red Blue and Yellow colored wires. The passenger side had Green Purple and Yellow. So you have all the right wire colors but white. Which Im assuming is equivalent to red. Joe...

    Do pads wear rotors or do rotors wear pads?

    Rotors get worn down by pads overtime, but pads get worn down by rotors as well. I'm assuming you asked this question because you wondered if it would harm the rotors or pads by just throwing on a new set of pads. Rotors become grooved overtime, your mechanic should know when to "turn"your...

    Is this a good price for 105K service?

    Yes the parts are expensive...but you pay for the guarantee more than anything. Our shop (and most) always lets customers bring in their own parts. Bringing your parts will save you some money. However they do not get a guarantee on the part. Also my shop always used quality parts to fix...

    Is this a good price for 105K service?

    I worked in an Auto Shop for 5 years. Like many of our customers, I know its easy to think you're getting ripped off. To truly understand where your money goes you have to understand how auto shops charge you. Heres how auto shop prices work... 1. You get charged 150% the price for a...

    Did Ford Use Threadlock?

    I would never use thread-lock on a bolts for a thermostat...Thread lock is usually used wherever bolts will stay mostly permanently (specific Body to Frame bolts)...using thread-lock will make it a lot harder to take the thermostat bolts out again my 2 cents

    How To Add (98-01) Lighted Side Mirrors on a (95-97)

    Ah I thought of adding the heated option...because they had a limited at the JY but, the wire for heat is connected to the rear window defroster switch. so you would have to route the extra wire through the door which requires drilling or opening that huge wire loom connecter in the door Plus...

    How To Add (98-01) Lighted Side Mirrors on a (95-97)

    I have always wanted lighted side mirrors on my 97 mountaineer. But as we all know only 98 - 01 explorer/mountaineers had them. Well this weekend i went to Pick and Pull and got some side mirrors off a 00 explorer to see if it was plug and play. They weren't....but with a little splicing I...

    MAC cold air intake? good or bad?

    One problem I had with my Mac, which is why i went back to stock I have a 5.0 keep in mind. But there was no way to keep engine heat away from the inlet. The box or cylinder depending what year you have is made of thick fiberglass which reduces heat. Even though your sucking in more air...
