  1. Catalytic converter question

    So my P0303 saga continues. Apparently the coolant weeping into #3 has ruined my cat. I'm hoping to find someone who has went catless and has a stock one sitting around that might be interested in selling it. I've got a stock '18 EB premium. There's one listed in the market place but the...
  2. OBD II question/ experience

    Will a poorly connected OBD dongle/cable cause odd faults/behavior? I popped a CEL and hooked up my code reader. It's a decent Innova one, not great but we'll above basic. It showed me the code but then the car went wonky. The entertainment system and the dash both turned off but the car did...
  3. Headgasket and studs

    Well, I'm ramping up to replace my headgasket. Since the stock ones have proven to be less than reliable I'm thinking an upgrade is in order. I'll be ordering the ARP studs Going that route do I need to upgrade the gasket or would a factory one work. Also, is there a gasket kit that's...
  4. P0303, cylinder #3 misfire.

    Swapped coil packs, still on #3 I'll check plugs next. At 76k+ miles it shouldn't need new but they won't hurt. Next will be checking injectors. I've put some cleaner in the tank to see if it helps. I've looked but can’t really see how to get to the injectors. I'm assuming the intake has to come...
  5. P0420

    I've searched and don't see anything related for a stock car. 2018 Ecoboost 72k miles, completely stock. CEL came on yesterday showing P0420 Bank 1 catalyst efficiency below threshold. It's had a bit of a rough idle lately but otherwise is behaving normally. I only run 93 but, due to the...
  6. Tire with some longevity?

    '18 Ecoboost Premium Convertible that's my DD. 60 miles a day round-trip commute that's 75% rush hour interstate/ 25% city streets. It's also the car we drive on trips and weekend outings. It does not get tracked or raced but sees some fun mountain roads a few times a year. Currently on the...
  7. Thoughts on 10r80 fluid/filter change.

    Just watched a video on changing the fluid and filter and it looks messy but doable. I then checked the owners manual which says the service interval is 150k miles. But I've read other places that it should be done every 30k miles. I'm currently sitting at about 66k so I'm either not quite half...
  8. Mecum '68 Eleanor

    Just watched a '68 liscenced Eleanor see for $200. Don't know if that's good or not but it kinda surprised. Lots of nice cars selling for a lot of money... A '19 911 went for $400k, next car was a '73 911 Carrera went for $450k
  9. Convertible sub options.

    Looking into what my options might be to getting a bit more low end in my convertible. It's an '18 EcoBoost Premium without the Shaker, or whatever, system they put in that year and my DD. So there's not a sub in the trunk and I don't really want to give up that trunk space for one. My back...
  10. Rear quater window questions and discoveries.

    So, I was searching for a modification/module/device to make the rear quarter windows one touch up/down like the fronts. Has anyone seen something like this? Anyway, I came across this from Ford. I don't know what model years it's from but I suspect it's not from the s550. Since Ford sometimes...
  11. Battery box cover fasteners

    Changed the battery yesterday and, like many others, I lost one in the engine compartment. I was able to retrieve it but was wondering if anyone has come up with a mod to make them more permanent? Or should I just buy a few extras and not worry about it?
  12. Rented a Camaro

    So I wanted to drive a convertible on our vacation to Florida. I assumed it would be a Mustang since they are so prevalent down there. But no, all they had was a '19 Camaro 2L turbo. I thought ok it will be a good comparison with my 18 EcoBoost convertible. Thank God I bought a Mustang! My...

  14. Almost time for brakes, trying to decide what to do.

    '18 EcoBoost Premium convertible, 50k miles, DD in downtown Atlanta traffic. No track or strip but enjoy driving the mountain roads north of here. The stock brakes have been fine but I think I'd like to do an upgrade when it's time. 6 pistons are out of the question. Besides being overkill for...
  15. Can sync connect be added?

    2018 EcoBoost Premium Convertible. No navigation. Can the Sync Connect feature be added? If so, what all is involved? Is it something a dealer could add? If it's possible has anyone done it?
  16. Cool or cheesy?

    Saw one on an F150 a the dealer today and kinda liked it. Trying to decide if it would look good on the back of my Race Red convertible or just cheesey?
  17. A10 transmission fluid check frustration.

    Ok, tried to check the fluid in my EcoBoost A10 today. Please, for all that's holy, please tell me how you got the dipstick out. I tried open and box wrench, I tried a socket - from above and below and couldn't get anything to seat. The only thing I got to go on it was a claw foot on a pivot...
  18. Convertible jacking rails question.

    I recieved the jacking rails for my convertible yesterday. Thanks for the quick shipping and response to my earlier questions. So, a quick question. The front two bolts that the factory installed (that get removed) are quite a bit longer than the hardware you provide. Per the online video I...
  19. Help choosing new tires please.

    '18 EcoBoost convertible, 18" factory wheels. It's a DD, 25k+/year, 80% highway in Atlanta plus 6 to 8 150 - 600 mile trips a year. Looking at all season tires with a bit if emphasis on long tread life. It's currently on the factory PZero and they have been ok but really want something with a...
  20. General question about jacking up the Mustang

    So, I've got jacking rails on the "I want" list. But it's approaching time to rotate the tires and I don't have the cash to buy the rails right now. I'm thinking I'll get an aluminum puck in the mean time. I've got 2 other vehicles it would work for as well so it makes sense. To my mind, the...
