    02 sensors

    I’ve got a check engine light and the scanner says it’s running lean. The person that helped me said it’s probably an 02 sensor, I’ve never fixed that and I was told that you can clean them sometimes? Does anyone know if that’s a possibility or if you have to replace them? And if you have to...

    I feel like this is a really dumb idea for a 01' v6

    So I'm pretty sure some people here have seen the Freevalve miata if not here it is so I was thinking, my parents 01' v6 rwd has had its front timing chain replaced and the rear one hasn't. It's coming up to 243k mi and I was thinking as a experiment what about implementing something similar to...

Currently my high beams are not that bright (could be the bulb or whatever is causing the low beams...

    First Truck

    So a couple weeks ago I bought my first vehicle, a 2001 V6 5-Speed Manual Transmission Sport Trac. Needless to say, I'm in love. While it wasn't 4wd, I went ahead and bought it because it was a pretty great deal, so for $2500 cash in hand, I bought my very own truck. 188,000 miles with no...

    I recently noticed that my coolant reservoir was completely empty so I took a trip to Autozone and got a jug of coolant and filled the reservoir to the cold fill line.
