Question Asked: PATS?
February 17, 2010, 12:58 PM
Lost only key. Is there a way to tell if my car has PATS? The dealership said I would have to bring it in. Junkyard said an ignition from a '96 Winstar would work. Also, if it does have PATS, can I program new ignition and key myself?
Question Asked: Thumping sound from rear at 45 mph

Just bought the car and on the third drive it made a thumping sound at 45 mph that only lasted a second or so. Didn't make the sound before 45 mph or after. Sounded like it was coming from the rear. Haven't driven it since. Drove it twice before and it didn't make this noise. (kind of sounds like when you run over the rumble strip on the highway). Thx.

If you don't have the cash now, try liquid glass (generic name) for now. It has worked so far on two cars, including a v6 Taurus. You must follow the instructions exactly.

You can take the battery in to just about any auto parts store and they can test the battery to see if it good or bad. If the battery is good, then I would most likely say it is the alternator.
