    Blower Air Flow Speed Measurement / Test

    So I had a mechanic replace my recycle flap, and since then, it just seems the air coming out of the vents isn't as much as it was. So I got a air speed monitor and tested it. Does anyone out there have one and can do the same tests? I put it on max air, recycle, and closed all vents except...

    Speedometer issues

    a short time ago my speedometer stopped working properly. It isn't dead but it's not accurate. It reads over and will jump all the way up randomly. It will say I'm doing 70/80 when I'm doing about 35/40. I'm not sure what to look at or replace and I'm pretty uneasy driving in a cop thick area...

    Help with spedo after trans swap

    Hello, I just completed an auto to manual trans swap on an 02 explorer sport. It works great now... mostly. The speedometer and odometer does not work anymore (it did before). I was under the impression it derived the signal from the transfer case or rear axle, not the transmission? Any one...

    Gear ratio question

    So, I was wondering how streetable a 91 X would be if it was geared with 4:88s. Spool in the front, locker in the rear. Full width axle from a 79 bronco, hp 44 in front. I know its more off road set up, but wanting to street it too. (I'm thinking about buying this X fyi) Thanks for any help.

    So a few days ago I decided to finally clean my MAF which as far as I remember had never been cleaned. So I removed it and of course, it was completely covered in grime. Cleaned it with some CRC MAF cleaner and the check engine light went away. It came back that same night so I removed it and...
