Question Answered: how easy or difficult is a fuel injecter to replace.
July 30, 2013, 01:41 PM
if you don't have a lot of experience, don't attempt. injectors are under valve cover. after replacement, glow plug is pulled and cylinder is cleared. if not, engine will hydrolock as diesel and coolant will drain into cylinder as soon as injector is pulled out.
Question Answered: 2005 ford f150 will not pass or fail emissions
July 30, 2013, 11:50 AM
not familiar with emission there. you say he cleared the computer. find out if he reset the keep alive memory. that resets the computer on the fuel learn table. the vehicle is then driven and relearns the way it is driven to set the fuel trims.

Car Review: 2009 Hyundai Accent
August 01, 2013, 08:03 PM
Bought this car new. Was driving 150 miles a day back and forth to work. Needed a cheap car that had a long warranty as I was racking up miles on car I was driving pretty quick. Did normal maintenance up to 35k miles. Took to dealer with a/c problem. Compressor bad, headlights peeling chrome inside, trans slip in 3rd gear. Repaired all but the trans. Was told to drive it till trans went out and get it replaced. 55k now and still slips. Other than that, been a good car. Averages 35mpg on highway.
Car Review: 2000 Ford Expedition
August 01, 2013, 07:56 PM
Bought this Eddie Bauer Expedition in June. Had 78k miles on it. Was a trade in with a bad engine knock. Pulled oil pan, #8 rod bearing bad, crankshaft ok. Put it together, have put about 3k miles on it since repair. Drives good. Has 4x4 and air suspension. Not great on gas milage but try not to drive a lot. Great to pull with. Looking for third row seat as it was gone.
