I have a 2005 sport trac. Just recently I noticed that when I go up a driveway, I could hear something go "clunk", and the noise was coming from the front passenger side. I finally was able to get under there to investigate the situation and I noticed part of the bushing on the upper control arm is gone and the other one is pretty cracked. My question is can I get the bushings alone or do I have to get the arm which comes with bushings and ball joint? AutoZone tried to sell me the entire control arm but I really don't need all of it. My ball joints are fine.

My check engine light was lit up so I hooked up an obdII and cleared it after repairing problem. Now when I went to smog my truck I found out that it won't pass until I complete a drive cycle. So far everything has checked out good except for the EVAP system section which still says incomplete. I drove my truck like the mechanic said: 30 min. at 65mph but it still says incomplete. What else can I do to make it complete this test?

My 04 sport trac is losing coolant sometimes. Today I went to autozone to get a new radiator cap. I parked uphill(30+ degrees) and when I shut it off I got steam. Looking under the truck and under the hood I had dripping from the bell housing area? put more coolant in reservoir and drove 1 block to store. No steam or fluid. drove the ten minutes back home and still nothing? I know I losing fluid somewhere. I check it everyday and sometimes it's 1/4 of an inch low and sometimes I check and it's empty? I'm a good shade tree mechanic. I've worked in shops and repaired my own for years! I'm lost this time! HELP!

My sport trac will start if it sits overnight. I start it up it the morning and runs fine. If I drive to a few other locations, after the last location it will not start. It tries to turn over, but will not. I have to let it sit for a while, at which it will start.

but not when you press the steering wheel all fuses are good

but wont start the car

on all the time now. Mechanic thinks it may be the emmisions line that carry vapors to the filter over the spare

Both front bearings are roaring, are their god or best replacements that can be recommended?

The brakes seem to work fine...

Need new engine because head probably cracked and cost more to fix then replace. I'm at the mercy of mechanic because I have no idea. Said type of engine and where things are located it is hard to fix. They want over 4,000 to replace I being ripped off? Not to mention I have been back to them several times due to engine light on and running rough when starting
