This ford dealership is trying to charge me 160 for a diagnostic and I already had that done at another autobody for 80. And they're telling me that it will cost me 600 or better for an instrument cluster!I haven't had my vehicle for a year and a half yet and feel I'm being railroaded!

It is a 4.6 v8

ibaci check fuse and its fine. How to reset sencer?

The prior owner of the truck said that he put a starter on it and it was the wrong one so he had to order the correct one and when he got it and put it on the truck was just sitting up and it caused the computer to jump time or something but he said he was told that a test could be ran n they would start back

1998 mercury mountaineer third brake light flickers oil pressure gage fluctuates abs light stays on making it very hard to come to a stop. These things have started happening one by one within ththe last week or two.

It pulls left and right with a humming sound anywhere I drive it is an r title and the check advance trac is on but im not sure if it has to do with that or is it my transmission slipping and its really bad once ive driven it for about 10 minutes on until it cools down again

I hear a popping and it feels like its coming from the rear tires

The squealing is much louder and distinctly different than the common belt chirp. It's difficult to narrow down to the specific pulley just by listening to the squealing. Based on research, I'm guessing it's the idler pulley, but just wanted to educated opinions in order to avoid unnecessary time and money being used for things that aren't in need of repair.

Had my transmission looked at the fluid is clean a sensor replaced but it's still slipping the fluid is clean but it is shaking the whole truck I think it's something in the front end but people keep telling me the transmission is slipping love your phone and doesn't work right I would imagine the torque converters having trouble can you help me with this question

or disconnect it?

I recently had transission rebuilt for $1900 and its not making any outside noise, not breaks or front cv joint its coming from driver side rear tire, no winding or clinking/ticking is heard when turning from the outside and no warning of this.

I don't have the $ to fix, priced around (600-1200) is there anything I can do (troubleshoot) short time?

I've already replaced the heater control valve and thermostat , I have plenty of antifreeze the blend door actuator was checked already its fine. I had the vacuum hose replaced Nov 23 2015 the heater core was also checked its fine , and I didn't experience any antifreeze on the passenger floor in the front. The blower switch for hot and cold was replaced on Nov 27 2015 I still don't have any heat. I saw an answer on here someone said "There are two switches under the hood in the circuit and one or both of them is bad. Cost me over three hundred to find this out." Where are the two switches under the hood that they're referring to ?

if I switch the blower to dash it blows if I leave in one spot it may last a trip or so sometimes it will last a few days and other times less then a trip to store

It still runs hot do I need a fan cover

Why would my truck completely cut out, (not die), while driving up a wet, icy or snowy hill? I lose traction even if I down shift and/or give it gas. The car will then gradually slide sideways up the hill. I have all brand new tires, only 83k miles on it, no warning lights, transmission seems fine. I'm stumped.

fuseable link looks like a bandaid with two copper ends and a black plastic middle that reads 175 A ford motorcraft, in the power supply box there is a square starter relay which seems to work fine. I need help, do I run new negative cable and possitive cable , nothing has been changed out with the cables ,but I did put in a brand new starter cleaned up connections around the fuseable link then it finally started now it is happening again..

when trying to start it just clicks and its not the battery or starter, where is the solenoid located on the 1998 Mercury Mountnr. V8 awd.

Had my mounty to a dealer and they said it was just "the nature of the beast" and that this was a big complaint but there was no fix for it. I can't seem to wrap my brain around that. It sometimes feels like someones hitting me from behind. Not sure if its brakes or tranny. But just had brakes all redone and its still doing it. Sometimes jerking me 6-8 inches forward. Scary to passengers and myself.

I havent had this truck a year yet...
