What is your coolant level in the radiator/system? If you have a leak and are very low on coolant, there may not be enough coolant to flow across your wet bulb coolant temperature sensor normally located at the top/upper area of the engine which with no coolant flowing through engine to the top heat will not be properly transferred causing damage to the engine internals with a delayed indication on your dash. If you need vehicle properly diagnosed and repaired call 757-456-0722 and asked about our $10 rental cars while yours is being repaired
Question Answered: How do I drain and replace Power Steering fluid
August 16, 2016, 07:07 AM
What we do at the shop is use a flush machine with your vehicle running suck out fluid from the high full level down to the minimum normal level, fill back up with a clear flush cleaning solvent compatible with your power steering system, cycle the steering wheel to get the cleaning fluid to run through the system, repeat that until fluid is no longer dark dirty looking, then do the same with new fresh steering fluid (we normally use a manufacture approved full synthetic) repeating until the system is full of good clean fluid, that way the pump, the gear, the lines and if installed the cooler all get flush and filled with new fluid. If you do not have a way to do this we can 757-456-0722

Question Answered: Got my fan clutch fixed my car was running hot and transmission started slipping

Is fluid has been overheated especially if it hasn't been replaced or serviced recently I would remove the transmission pan and filter and inspect for debris. If looks good put new filter,pan and fluid and test drive before automatically buying a new transmission, but if there are a lot of debris especially if burnt then time to replace. Any questions and if you want a $10 rental car while we service or replace your transmission please call Roy tomorrow morning.

Ford uses a variety of controls depending on the trim level from manual to fully automatic controls. Most use in the early 90s used a combination of cables and vacuum to change HVAC settings. These also have been found to have restricted heater cores and occasionally more than one problem. I vacuum system and not obvious problem most well equipped will use a emission system smoke machine to find leaking actuators, hoses or controllers. Occasionally clips, arms or doors, some inside HVAC air housing box can also come apart, jamb or break, from insects/rodents, debris put in vents/dash defroster that fall in. Newer fully automatic systems and a few older use electric motors instead of stiff wire cables or vacuum actuators, If you have not found cause or need help correcting and would like a$10 a day rental vehicle while yours is being repaired please call Roy 757-456-0722
