Hi, soon after starting my Lincoln LS Sport the cooling fan runs at high speed and is loud. I replaced the cooling fan as I thought that might be the problem. But the fan still runs at full speed and is loud and very noisey. The temp is the half point on the gauge. I am not rich and I was hoping you might have heard about this from some one else, so I might have a better idea on where to look next. Thanks, Bob

Why do I need some throttle pressure to start an EFI engine? By opening the throttle are you telling the computer more gas or more air? Fuel delivery checks good, pressure with no bleed back. No codes other than 12. Runs well but an intermittent problem with the engine cutting out when removing throttle pressure to slow down.
My engine light came on yesterday, I experienced a loss of power. I was able to drive it home, the to Auto Zone where they told me it was the cam shaft sensor. I changed that today, now it is worse. What can I do or check next?
I have a 1989 Chevy Camaro with a broken tranny shift cable (auto). Does anyone know how it can be replaced and how difficult is it to do at home. Thanks
I have a 2002 ford Escape in which we changed spark plugs 2, 4 and 6 as the engine light was on and i was told #4 was misfiring. Car runs rough when starting, like a shaking. I notice when this happens that when you turn the key to start, the dinging sound you have til you start car is not there. Could i have a bad coil pack in #4 since they originally told me this was the one misfiring?
