Out of nowhere for no noticeable reason I turned my a/c on today and no cold air is blowing out. I checked all possible fuses,looked for any obvious signs of leaks and have come up empty handed. Could this simply be a freeon recharge needed. Fans blow fine. Hot air blows fine. Cooling fans kick on. Alternator seems to be working fine. Any ideas and price estimate would be greatly appreciated before I take to the shop and get taken advantage of. Thank you
The cruise control always worked fine on my 2003 Ford Taurus wagon with DOHC (24 valve) engine. Today I brought my car into a repair shop to have the rear brakes repaired (rotors, calipers, pads, and master cylinder). When I was driving home from the shop this afternoon, I noticed that my cruise control no longer works. The green indicator light (that says "Cruise Control") on the dashboard panel no longer illuminates when I try to set the cruise.
I called the mechanic, and he suggested checking the fuse. I checked the #32 position 10Amp fuse under the dash. It was ok.
Next I checked the brake pedal switch. It seems to be ok, and the brake lights illuminate when I step on the brakes.
Next I checked the cruise control physical linkage, and it doesn't seem to be binding. The next step is to check the Output Shaft Speed sensor, right? But I can't seem to find it. Can you tell me how to find it easily? And how to test it? Also, if the fuse is good (seems to be), why doesn't the indicator light on the dashboard illuminate (even if the cruise control refuses to physically engage)?
I am concerned that maybe this mechanic is playing me for a sucker. Does that seem likely to you?
How long have you had this problem? since I had a brake job today
My turn signals went out on my 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer. I replaced module under the driver’s side dash. Now it cranks but won’t start. Could I have accidentally hit something, disconnected or broke something under there that would cause this? It was running great prior to this. About 240,000 miles. Any help would be fantastic. Thank you

I have had an issue with my 2011 F150 5.0. The issue is lack of power under acceleration between 2/3/4 gear in the 2500 - 3200 RPM. It usually is only present when starting from a stop but does present itself when down shifting to accelerate. I took it to a dealer and their dealer's fix action was to replace a connector at the VCT solenoid showing fault (ye/sy-6r). This was after they had to make a hotline case. I am guessing that this maintenance was done on the drivers side because they removed the valve cover to check for sludge. If so where is this solenoid located? They made sure that all the TSBs have been performed such as tsb 13-03-21, replaced the lead frame and various other components with no change. I have a feeling that this VCT that they replaced the connector on may be at fault again and I will need to replace.

I need to know where the VCT is and how I go about replacing the connector or checking the vct.

Also the truck has 85,000 miles

I have trouble with my truck when braking. It shutters badly while braking at low and high speeds. Only time it does not do it too bad is when I've had to put my foot on the brakes hard and fast.

My soon has checked the brake pads (3/8" left), rotors have been checked and fine. Tires rotated and balanced. My husband thinks it could be the steering box. I am concerned driving it now and have a 1,800 mile mountain trip coming up!

The car had a new battery put in two weeks ago due to starting issues. But it now randomly won't start and a buzzing sound comes from almost like the dashboard. Youtube suggests an electrical relay issue. Any input would be very welcome. This is for a college student away and dealing with her first mechanical issue.

I am recently a proud owner of a 2009 Ford focus and as I got home I looked over the car myself, and I have came across that the exhaust manifold is a hard plastic instead of a finishing metal and I've come to realize that, that's not right at all and I'm wondering how or what I should do to go about getting this problem fixed. The car runs nice and everything is good on it but I can't come to myself in terms of why the exhaust from the head down is a hard plastic as that would melt over time..
What seems to make the problem better or worse? It's worse when the engine gets hot.
