Should I have body shop replace or do it myself??
there is no obd code. installed new fuel pump to no avail. changed idle air control valve 1 week before, for high idle issue. then it ran fine till it died.
Need to know where thermostat is locate. Ford over heating (temp light is on, but no leak). Also makes clicking noise when key is turned but will not turn over. batter is good and terminals are clean. need to locate starter motor to check for loose starter wire
sound last only about 20 - 30 seconds
where is this vacuum switch located
I turned on the a/c today and discovered that air only blows through the defrost vents. The center dash climate control know controls the dash vents, lower vents and combined dash and lower vents. But only the defrost vents seem open. In addition, the MAX air conditioning mode will not blow harder like normal
dealer claims i need new motor and cable - price 1400 to fix.
WHERE IS AMBIENT SENSOR LOCATED, PROBLEMS RELATED TO THIS SENSOR!
AC GETS HOT AT HIGHER AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS AND WHEN L STOP STARTS TO GET COOL.AT IDLE IN DRVEWAY IS COOL!
I changed the bulb first, and then actually switched them to see if it was a faulty bulb. It was not, but the driver's side brake light still won't come on. I'm trying to avoid a trip to the dealer, but my auto repair knowledge is between slim and none. Thanks.
in heat wont start
There is a cheap way and the right way to hook up to machine..what is this and how much does it cost?
Like a intermittant rattle sound coming from the right front wheel at low speeds over bumps. Repair shop says it could be the struts but wasn't sure. $550 would be a lot of money to spend if they are not sure it will fix the problem. I know its not a lot to go on but any ideas would be welcome.
How do I remove dash to get to the actuator?
When I start the car it starts wirh high rpm, and fter it warms up it wil occasionl squeak when i let off accelerator. Will also make squealing noise on startup after car is warm. Idle is pretty erratic when car is warm.
My alarm just goes off randomly, while it is sitting still and locked. usually once or twice daily.
Horn and flashing lights wil activate when there is no one around
I have looked all over the engine compartment, but cant find it.
unless I unplug the air flow sensor . runs great all day though with sensor . I've changed air filter , air flow sensor , manifold gaskets . seems to be tempature problem . maybe ecu or pcm . also , if I'm driving and it gets dark at night it will die mid stream when I slow down . thanks
what is the problem and the fix
need to replace my alternator
The leather trim on the door panels, keeps coming loose. It is just kind of pressed on or something, I keep having to repress it under the seam. I don't know why it keeps coming loose.
If someone can help me al be very greatfull
I cant get it out of park unless i rock the truck back and forth while pulling the steering wheel. Also, up on ramps- we put it in gear and when we gave it gas, it made a rattling nose coming from the shaft I guess. It sometimes makes a noise in that area (where the transmission meets the shaft) like a gear slipped and grinded but the truck doesnt stop moving out of gear.
Took it to mechanic, he opened it and replaced the lifters only to find out that it wasn't the lifters so he didn't charge me for failing to fix the problem. Truck doesn't burn or leak oil or gas. i caught my daughter running it w/out oil once so i know that's what caused the problem.
Sometimes-not always- my truck wont stay on unless I keep the gas running and accelerated with the break on for the truck not to turn off. A couple of blocks later, It will run fine on its own without me needing to keep both throttle and break going. Does it need a new fuel pump maybe?? IDK
i put a transmision pan gasket on it and now after putting it back together it wont go into gear
drive train? any recalls?
My drivers side door will sometimes go up with having to press the button several times, not sure if its the motor or a switch. Can anybody help me.
