Question Answered: My hardtop is stuck half way up, how to reset it?
April 18, 2017, 08:20 AM
the procedure is rather complicated and requires special tools to be able to close and or open the top manually. its rather recommended to drive vehicle slowly to a shop that can accommodate you in the repair process. We can do that for you.
Question Answered: Drivers back side window won't stay up.
February 01, 2017, 05:10 PM
the repair process is not too complicated. base on your description seems that you will have a problem with the window regulator. this part is responsible to transmit the power from the power window motor to operate the window up and down. when it fails usually will bind not allowing the window to move up or down. but in your case it dropped the glass into the door. thankfully it did not brake. this is not a 5 min job with out the experience required i would not recommend you tackling it. this can cost in the ball park or $250.00 if you need we can assist you in repairing it for you. thanks
Question Answered: Why does van hesitate when stepping on gas after coasting ?

If in fact you have a problem with the transmission driving it for a year will not help it so getting it to a shop is advised. Driving it will only make it worst.
This almost sounds like low fluid but if u had a leak by now it should not move if all the fluid leaked out. the best method to determine the problem is by datalogging the transmission as the problem happens this will show a commanded gear if at the moment it commands the gear it takes some time to actually engage then u have a problem with the transmission. this should be picked up by a proper scan tool. hope this sheds some light on the problem.
Question Answered: Oil light comes on at idle
November 05, 2016, 07:10 AM
There is 2 common problems: 1 the pick up screen of the oil pump clogged with debri or sludge and 2 performing a reflash to the ecu to resolve a none existing problem per tsb TSB 18-003-08.
both require an actual inspection like pushrod mention to confirm if there is oil pressure or not with a mechanical gauge. if you dont have oil pressure that is bad and at best 1 is your solution if you do have oil pressure then its a matter of a computer update. We can help you with both options. My shop is located in cape coral.
Question Answered: does wind shield wipers have a relay switch ?
September 16, 2016, 07:10 AM
the system is some what complex and yes it does have relays. this truck has whats called an inteligent fuse box and some times they have problems doing weird things such as you are mentioning. but this is not an cheap to just put one on. you should have a qualified repair shop diagnose and replace the correct parts.
Question Answered: P0306 have changed everything that is stated including both cats, still there
September 12, 2016, 06:12 PM
Don't mean to be disrespectful but changing parts with out properly testing is a good way to change unnecessary parts and a wait of your throwing away money. I see it too often that to avoid seeing a mechanic shop a lot of mechanically inclined people try to fix cars themselves and don't get me wrong some things can be done in a driveway with no problems but some require proper equipment that's very pricy and knowledge. Changing very expensive CATS with out knowing it would solve my problem would mean i get a law suit dropped in my lap. So Pushrod is correct in his statements. I recently had a ford that was doing the same thing as you are describing. Misfire code but we had good spark no other codes and injector sounded as if it was injecting fuel. the injector was covered by the intake so we opted to remove the injector in question and swap it to a more accessible injector location this way if the misfire now changed to the new location of the injector we knew the injector was at fault. and in our case the fault did travel to new injector location witch was located where in less then 5 min we can change it. your truck has a much better set up and that allows injectors to be changed way faster then the ford i mentioned. that would be where i would start. further with proper equipment i can get bidirectional control of the outputs of the computer and command injectors to be disabled to confirm cylinder contribution. there is a lot more to it but If you want my shop is located in cape coral and we will more then happy to sort it out for you.
Question Answered: Weird noise under hood
August 05, 2016, 07:33 AM
The noise you describe is the fan clutch being engaged to cool the engine. This is usually is because truck is reaching high temp. but the overheating is a big problem and it explains the fan engaging at high speed often. so you need to stop driving it!!! We can assist you in determining the cause of the overheating. calls us we can get you in next week. 239-424-8477 ask for Rae
