alternator quit charging,replaced alt. still no charge,Tech said could be the e.c.m. Is that possible.Have checked alt wireing, cleaned grounds, and cables. Did charge for awhile,after I replaced alt. then stopped.coustomer did run batt. completely down. What do I do to fix this, No charging problem? 160,000 miles on truck.

I have check the coil on other plugs and works fine. So im wondering if the wire can go bad.

the struts are snapping off the frame and causing the brakes to go out.

Its a 2005, 6 cylinder if that helps at all

When the car starts the noise begins it's coming from the heat vent.

even different working coil does not work on cylinder 1. Can the computer cause this? Is it in the wiring? When using a tester all cylinders/coils wires light flashes green except cylinder 1, light remains on even when vehicle is turned off/on. Help?

I'm reading a lot of complaints about this same issue. I'm thinking Ford needs to recall and fix this for us loyal Ford lovers. If not, since I know nothing short of replacing the entire door panel, I am going to remove mine as they fall off, sand the metal down smooth and paint them.

While driving thru a parking lot (about 10-15mph) I thought my foot slipped from the gas pedal but the pedal had actually fallen to the floorboard. I coasted at idle speed all the way home.

Ford dealer in Orlando wants to replace torque converter AND transmission since it has 150K miles on it. Can we just fix the converter or do I need to fix both? Or should I just tow it somewhere and trade it? Only owe 2K on the darn thing..typical!

howto chnge cheap way to fix

REMOVE & REPLACE ENGINE OIL PAN &/OR GASKET - $224.59

REMOVE & REPLACE VALVE COVER GASKET - $434.27

I replaced the alternator & now the list is:
Replace hoses $340
Replace tie rods $310
Fix wheels seizing $50
And $1800 for oil leaks
Is this the beginning of many expensive repairs?

Now I get 17 highway but 4 city. Runs good but poor mileage. They did put a new transmisson in it the the gear ratio is the same as the old one. Any ideals

loud noise front end. Sound like i have a flat tier. Went to Discount tier and they told me my tiers where good. I was told could be something with front end.
