Re: Heater fan imtermittent off then back on

If water is getting in, it is likely a sunroof drain. Do you have a sunroof? My brother's 2000 MB ML320 let water in at the right angle rubber sunroof drain near the front right passenger footwell. the "pinched tip" of this drain was clogged with debris.

Re: Transmission cooler line connector fitting leaking

I would try tightening it up. Can't hurt. I had a little drip on my brothers equinox when I replaced the radiator for him. Just needed tightening. Trans cooler is inside radiator submerged in coolant. Just a rubber seal and brass fitting if I remember correctly. Trans line connects to brass fitting

My mom's 2003 Vulcan had a rotted pcv elbow on the top left side of the motor when facing the car. Remove yours and take a look inside if you have the same setup.

Re: 2006 Ford Five Hundred - final days

I know what you mean. My 2005 has a huge hole on the right side and the left side has bubbled and will have a hole soon. I believe the problem was due to bad prep work, since mine bubbled between the metal and the paint. Oh well. I have 319k onine now and will continue running it until it dies or a ...

Re: Door Latch Lubrication

Wow. Good luck. I am about to go over 317k on my five hundred. I bought my mom a 2003 taurus Vulcan in 2003. Still has it and it runs great. Has a leaky timing cover though.

Re: Door Latch Lubrication

Then the pass door acted up this morning...wouldn't latch...so I sprayed it along with the other doors and trunk. I honestly think the problem is caused by the rubber coating on the mechanism. I have cut and pulled out what I could on other cars. Seems to help.

Re: Door Latch Lubrication

I just went through this on my driver's door 2 days ago. I sprayed the latch/mechanism with silicone spray and didn't remove anything. It worked well this morning at less than 10 degrees.

Bad coolant temp sensor? What is your temp gauge reading on the dash?

Re: 05 ford five hundred stalling

Dumb question...did you disconnect batt, wait 5-10 mins, reconnect batt, turn key forward (but not start) to allow for throttle body to sweep and recalibrate?

Re: 05 ford five hundred stalling

Was the car doing this before you installed new plugs? If not, the upper intake must not be sealing like it should.

Sounds like you have a leak on the upper intake to me.

Did they replace the upper strut bearings as well? I would guess this is your problem.

Re: 2006 montego hard shift.

Likely due to a bad transaxle roll resistor bushing. Pop the hood and look for tears in the rubber bushing.

My ford five hundred did the same thing when an oxygen sensor went bad. No cell for quite a while but got one for lean bank 1 eventually.

Re: 2004 Taurus runs rough when taking off

Vulcan? If so check the rubber pcv elbow on top of the intake. My mom's had a crack in it that caused the car to run badly.
