  1. Bad driving habits with your Mustang

    On the putting it in neutral at lights if I know the lights will be a long time I put on the handbrake , neutral and off the pedals completely. But the Mustang turns off its DRL lights if you put it in neutral and engage the handbrake. The wearing out bearings etc was typically people who left...
  2. Random thoughts.......................

    Why is it a sandwich made by someone else tastes better than exact same one made by yourself?
  3. Why buying a car is still such a miserable experience right now

    Each of my kids bought their own car. I serviced them day one, repaired any defects, new fluids everywhere, new brakes rotors tires etc if needed. I could have bought it for them out of petty cash but the point was that they worked to earn money pumping gas working on checkout etc and they...
  4. Can we have a funny meme thread? (NO POLITICS!)

    To be fair it is the only car I ever saw with that warning, probably to stop the French retreating too fast. :)
  5. Can we have a funny meme thread? (NO POLITICS!)

    And to add to that I now consider it a badge of my success in life that all my cars have 2 keys and the owners manual.
  6. Can we have a funny meme thread? (NO POLITICS!)

    I burst the transmission on a Peugeot 505 Estate (Station Wagon) doing that, turns out in the owners manual (i was the 5th or 6th owner so no manual in the car, hell no second key :) ) there was very explicit warnings that you must not bump start the car in reverse.
  7. Passenger wiper arm disconnected

    Sotty I didn't, just used the muscle memory torque meter and gave it a mild "umph" tighten, you know the one 10 or 20 percent below worrying threads will strip :)
  8. Passenger wiper arm disconnected

    You were dead right. Passenger side nut was more than hand tight but easily turned another 90 degrees. Problem solved. Driver side nipped up as well.
  9. Passenger wiper arm disconnected

    Something is moving because the passenger arm is wobbling at the pivot point when I turn on the wipers. Haven't had a chance to properly look yet, at work.
  10. Passenger wiper arm disconnected

    Nice discovery this morning, put on washers and only the driver side wiper swept, the passenger side wobbled and didn't move. I assume the linkage has separated, anyone had this or repaired it? Any tips. Guessing Ill have to take the shroud off and of course it'll be the side of the linkage in...
  11. Why did you buy an automatic? (and why I ordered a 6spd)

    Leaving aside clutch feel (and that IS an abomination), my issues with the gearbox MT82-D4 are Nibble going into gear if anything other than really warm. Tactile feedback between gates, there is none. I have driven other European Ford manuals and shifting gears is an effortless affair you...
  12. Why did you buy an automatic? (and why I ordered a 6spd)

    I like driving the manual, although the MT82 is the worst manual I have ever driven. But I have the A10 in a 2018 Expedition and that is superb and my limited runs in a Mustang A10 where its tuned for sporty driving confirmed that for an auto it can damn near read your mind. And the Hellcat 8...

  14. How to change background in Sync.. (at your own risk)

    Being very un-artistic, does anyone have some backgrounds pre-made?
  15. Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    I drive mine in snow and ice, the torsen is very predictable assuming you're not being silly with the throttle. . I prefer it to be honest. And remember if you're slipping up a slight hill or off the lights in ice a gentle application of hand brake causes both wheels to turn even if one wheel...
  16. Can we have a funny meme thread? (NO POLITICS!)

    That was exactly my thought, no way she's on the 10th kid looking like that
  17. officer lied on accident report

    Agreed hence quoting the statement " The most common cause of death for police officers at work is violence by persons."
  18. officer lied on accident report

    Not arguing the deserving respect comment, they do But can we recognize plenty other people risk their lives daily, police officer is no 22 in the list 14 per 100,00 workers versus loggers at 111 per 100,000...
  19. Metal Flakes in Oil. What now?

    If you don't know how to diagnose this yourself ( I wouldn't) and your oil test is inconclusive I'd be looking to talk to a engine shop. Or assume the worst and consider this as the engine Gods hinting it's time for a refresh/rebuild or engine swap.
