  1. Emission Recall 23E12

    Sounds like the port injection fuel supply line MIGHT "shed" fuel more than it is supposed to, IE none(ish). Not good for the environment, and might put some fuel in your engine bay in what i would assume is microscopic amounts. I wouldn't rush off to get it done if i had stuff to do (which is...
  2. Exhaust sound

    It would also smell like rotten eggs if it was the cats going. From what you describe it sounds like a pinhole exhaust leak, maybe directly hitting some rubber somewhere. See if your tires dont have any mystery melting marks. Have you checked around your coolant lines? I suppose a pinhole in...
  3. Surprising highway fuel mileage

    i found that out soon after getting my 6 speed! One particular leg heading towards the SC coast I got 27-28 mpg. Averaged 24-25 on other tanks on that trip. I was floored! What really continues to amaze me, is that i get 18-20 when i drive it spiritedly, didn't expect that at all! Same driving...
  4. 1st Manual Car

    There's one thing i know how to test. Put it in a high gear like 5th or 6th around 40 to 60 mph, then floor the gas. If the rpms dont raise consistent with the speedo, like if the tach raises up a few rpm faster than the speedo gains in speed comparatively, then the clutch is slipping. It should...
  5. 10-12k Over Oil Change, am I screwed?

    For 1 time, you are fine. We ran out fiestas 1.6 to 10k every change, 15 once, and the transmission crapped the bed long before the engine had any issue at all, bout 130k. Powershift Dual Clutch, so we knew it was coming. 11k its barely over that, you'll be fine and we didn't even ensure it...
  6. Sport Mode No Longer Active

    Heres a snip from the manual for my 22 FWIW. It looks like Sport is triggered by putting it on S, Sport+ is accessed through the menu. I'm not sure if sport is a seperate option in that menu or not, since i dont have sport because manual. But it does look like it isnt available when the shifter...
  7. Sport Mode No Longer Active

    Yep, as mentioned, sport is not a driving mode in that menu all the time, but instead activated by putting the gear shifter in S from D. You only see Sport+ toggling through that menu in D. I have a manual car, so I dont have a Sport mode at all, just Sport+. This is how I read the manual anyways.
  8. People flashing lights at nighttime.

    Not too often, but its definitely because of the brighter LEDs in use today, which includes our cars. Flashing my brights usually lets them know that I'm not brighting them and they lay off.
  9. Lost for words

    I'm amused you think talking to them would lead to a news story, but shooting being revenge for something being accidental is your issue with number 2. It's pretty clear number 2 is an emotional response, thats how i would FEEL. I would absolutely go talk to them. Bullets are hitting your...
  10. Lost for words

    Boo! Three things hit my mind. 1. My county limits shooting to properties with 10 or more acres. This is why I'm good with that, even though it excludes my place. 6 acres is simply not big enough, especially if people are being careless like this. 2. I would have a hard time not doing a little...
  11. Accurate bass from the trunk

    There are definitely some good threads on here, with lots of good info on the specifics for this car, as the connections game will be a bit different then you remember. LOCs are not the preferred method to get signal from HU to amp. I had a amp and sub in my old car, haven't got one or put in...
  12. Tire Age ?

    Right? I replaced my first 2 (well, first 2 due to tread, not road hazard) couple months back. About 30k on em after a little over a year, and i do like my spirited driving.
  13. How do i find out my previous owner?

    Not sure about IL, but i know Texas list the previous owner on the title. Due to fraud, we had to contact the last owner of the last car my wife bought and did so after doing some digging to convert the name and address into a phone number. That guy was cool, and was very understanding...
  14. Well hell I tried - Interior chrome delete

    That pretty cool! Thank you for doing this! I was wondering what itd look like with no chrome in there shortly after delivery, and this answers it for me, i now know that i personally like the chrome better. So that isn't helpful to you, but it was to me, so thank you for that! I would say go...
  15. Looking to buy a V6 mustang with mt82

    I don't have a v6 fwiw, but the issues were not engine specific as far as understand. It's not like the coyote v8 is overpowering it, it just has some specific issues and quirks within the transmission itself. With 100k I'd ask if it's the stock clutch, and know your in for a clutch job at some...
  16. 5.0 Coyote chirp / tic on start up

    FWIW, I have not heard this noise on my 22 GT, though I'll pay better attention next time I'm in it and report back if it does do it. If i had heard it, i would have been concerned and done exactly what you've done, post here, followed by a dealer visit most likely.
  17. My car smell like gas station

    While this probably isnt your issue, my old mustang smelled like gas inside until we reclamped the h pipe connector piece better, then no more smell. Apparently it was unburnt gas in the exhaust fumes. Just mentioning this in case you don't find a fuel line leak, you may want to check for...
  18. What is your opinion on Walmart Super Tech motor oil?

    I do a ton of driving, think like 30k a year, which means at 5k intervals the oil is changed quarterly or so. My last car (mazda3) i religiously changed every 5k, car lasted until 280k when an uninsured truck/trailer totaled it. Motor ran better near death time than when i bought it at 75k for...
  19. How do I redeem my 3 free maintenance plan oil changes?

    Don't know about the fordpass rewards specifically, but i bet it works somewhat similarly to my oil change plan i got with mine. Meaning no spot on the appointment form, but tell the service advisor i have a plan and he looks it up. In this case, tell them you have fordpass rewards you want to...
