    Is this rod knock?

    Ok I have absolutely zero clue what this is. It literally just started like 10 minutes ago. Sorry for the very short clip but that’s what was allowed to send.

    Replacing Fuel Pump in 98 Exp Sport V6

    Hello. I'm seeing there are two ways I can go about replacing the fuel pump; just the pump itself or the entire apparatus. If I do go ahead with this, I need to keep the cost as low as possible as I'm selling this vehicle and her value isn't much. Can I get away with just replacing the pump...
