Just got new plugs, wires, and they said fixed rubber on all vacuums? Oh and new master air sensor...
He gave it a tune up and says he fixed vacuum leakes?? Now it iduls low?? Help please
I changed all 4 calipers new pads and rotors all the way around took it around the block and the same two brakes front driver and rear passenger locked up again. I was wondering is anyone knows if this year cougar 1994 4.6L has a cross directional brake system like some older caddilacs and i might have a master cylinder or proptioning valve of maby the ABS unit ? Right now there are no ABS or brake lights on. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
I can't get my socket down to grip the plugs, since I read something about a stupid cover for a '95 & a '99 merc cougar, I'm wondering if I have to deal with this - just to change spark plugs.
I'm using extensions and have done hundreds on tune ups, but these dang plugs never seem to loosen to be removed.
The plug holes are so deep so you only see the tip of the plugs by leaning very far over the engine. It's my daughters car a 1994 Mercury Cougar V8.
The oil was very low. Should I be out of oil again because I am hearing a high pitched sound coming from
the motor that I ussually hear when it's out of oil.
What could the problem be?
The last time it was low on oil, I didn't hear that sound.
