I have been the customer in my life, and didn't like the position of being at the mercy of someone I wasn't sure I could trust. I like the customers thanking me for being honest, and explaining the reason their vehicle needs to see the doctor, and what it takes to make it feel better.

Question Answered: when I try to put transmisson in park it grins and have to turn engine off to pu

Check the shift cable, sometimes the "eye" bushing at the transmission will wear or break causing a loose connection. If so the trans will not lock into park position, If that is in good condition the parking paw in the trans may be bad where it won't be able to lock.

Run evap test; Check for change in fuel tank pressure sensor. If no change and no leaks, possible bad sensor in fuel pump module.

An EGR valve is used to enrich the fuel mixture, by introducing exhaust gas back into the intake. The LEAN code shows you're not getting enough fuel for a proper mixture. Possible causes are Vacuum leak, Fuel filter restriction, weak Fuel Pump, o2 sensor, or maybe a Mass Air Flow sensor. Run fuel data on scan tool for short term fuel,o2 sensor data. Maybe need to take it to a repair facility who knows what to look for. This same problem happens quite often on most vehicles.
Question Answered: Have a 1964 thunderbird convertible top wont come up just makes a clicking sound

Is the clicking sound coming from the dash or the rear. Could be a bad switch, electric motors to raise top or bad connections at switch or motors.

Just a thought; Some imports have a filter in the vent side of the fuel filler hose. If it is slow filling the tank with fuel, something is blocking or (pinched) the hose to fill, or if your EVAP code says something about closed/restricted vent it could be a restricted filter in the vent hose.

Question Answered: When the spanner appears after the service countdown, how many miles can you go?

That is a MAINT REQ symbol. It is suggested you have your car checked. The light will stay on until you have it serviced by a qualified service center to have it reset. No damaged will resort from driving it with the light on, just wear and tear as usual. Just a reminder for you to get a physical exam.
Question Answered: I have no clue why, but my truck keeps stalling. Why?

If your dash lights are acting up, I would think you have an electrical problem. A fuel pump alone will not cause a dash to act up. Check your voltage and/or grounds for good contact, make sure your alternator is not shorted pulling power away from your electrical circuits. This vehicle will run with MAF unplugged, might unplug it and see if it runs better. Just a comment.

The LED lights do not have enough amp draw to heat/trip the flasher properly. I is like it doesn't know you have a bulb installed.
