I have reverse but I have no forward gears. It's believed that the solenoid is the problem. I just need to know exactly where it's located so I can switch it out.

stop and got gas three days ago snice that my truck has been jerking and cutting off every time i apply pressure to the gas pedal.i heard alot of things it could be.but before i spend any unncessary money. PLEASE HELP

Car was fine. We got gas and went home. Later, my husband went to run an errand. The car started running very rough. He pulled off the road and the car died. He restarted it and drove home. It continued to drive rough and the wrench light came on.

I just had another front wheel bearing replaced (again) and the mechanic says that he thinks there is a problem with the rear differential, but he can't do it (not a Ford mechanic). He said to take it to Ford, but that the cost might make more sense to get rid of the vehicle. Any idea the price range of rear differential repair/replacement for a vehicle with 67K miles?

I don't know the code. All I know is that I let me friend borrow the truck and he told me that he had a mechanic friend disable the ABS. I did the inspection of the fuses and everything looks good. What do I do now?


It worked for several years. Now when you set lever in drive and take foot off brake pedal it does not lock all doors. What can be the problem. Thank you.

I get a shaking when brakes are applied at 50 mph at my right front tire. What repairs are needed and what will it cost me

noise coming from driver side rear wheel when driving while giving gas noise is faint when coasting noise gets louder

throttle cable or throttle sticks in high rpms tried wd 40 helped some but still didn't fix it will carb cleaner work on it and not damage it more for cleaning it up

I already have the replacement transmission that I want to have installed in my vehicle, I only want an estimate to have the transmission put in.

I was driving and my car and it started to lose power. Push gas and it struggled to move, RPM's dropped and then it just died. I started it again and it was fine idling, but when I pushed the gas it loses power and dies. While in the process of losing power, the oil gauge would move back and forth very fast. Help!

outside door locks lock but don't unlock. want to be able to get in without key. code i have must not be right. how do i fix so i can get in keyless. power is there, lite comes on and pad lites up. thanks

I need to get to the power door lock control switch.

My a/c isn't cooling properly, I replaced the compressor dryer and expansion valve plus vacuumed the system and it still doesn't cool as it should. What could be the problem?

I seem to have narrowed it down to the power distribution box. I have pulled all fuse and it doesn't seem to make a difference. When I pull the power cable from the solenoid that goes to the distribution box. The drain stops. Whats the problem and how do I fix it. Thanks Red Rider

Usually happens within first 3 miles after starting cold. Makes a low steady hum, lasts probably 2-5 minutes. Doesn't affect the driving. Just me :-)

forward it works normal

When I turn the truck off, the interior lights and only the left side mirror lights stay on?
