I have a 2003 Ford Expedition, problem is with the rear window wiper assembly, when I take the motor assembly off, and try to manually move the wiper blade, it is rear hard to move it, hence when installing new motors to it, they burn out in 6 months or less, how do I get the blade assembley that goes thru the glass to free up, so it isn't so hard for the motor asembly to turn the blade.
Jump start worked...truck started and I drove about 30 feet and it died lights, etc. Was pitch dark. Jump started again, pulled it back into my garage and let it run. Battery gauge looks good...then turned it off and it's all dead again. thoughts?

is slipping and makes vibrating noise. Immedialely goes away once car is moving. Can you help determine the problem and the cost to repair.
the tap felt firm going in as uasal when cutting threads but it went loose a couple of times on the way down,then back to firm ,at the end it suddenly went completly loose at the bottom.i could pull the tap up and down about an eighth inch but it was stuck in hole and cant get it i turned it counter clock wise but was just loose so i turned it.clock wise a little and it tightened but broke free agian now its just stuck.i dont think i went to far were the tap went all the way in the cylinder but maybe,anyone have any knowledge or advice on this triton motor?
When my 2003 Expedition is completly full of fuel, it starts with no problems; but below a half tank it is difficult to start.
detect that a broken rear wiper was causing my battery to drain?
It has been hot since late spring, and we have had triple digit heat in my city for weeks now, but my trusty 2003 Expedition has previously handled this kind of weather like a champ! The Ford dealer serviced my car early last month(105K service!!) and I was told my A/C didn't need a charge even though I told them that I didn't feel it was cooling as effectively as before. The service department said "it can't cool as well when the outside temps are this high", and I just accepted that. But for the past two days, the air it blows is barely cool! I was told by a Sears Service tech today that I need a new "head control" installed, and failure of that part is fairly common. He said I should take it back to Ford! What does this mean, and what should I expect it to cost? I can't take this heat without my Expedition functioning up to par!! I would appreciate any insights.
a/c compressor wont work unless I unplug it from the battery and plug it again
I drove to the library (only 5 miles away). The check engine light came on and the temperature gauge pegged red. Two other warning lights came on: Reduced engine power & High Temperature/Low Oil. I got the codes pulled at Autozone. They read P1299. The AZ rep told me that I could probably replace the Cylinder head temp sensor myself. Thought I'd ask here first.
How do I know its the motor in the third row seat if the seat would not recline
