    Sho valve cover gaskets

    When I was looking for a foam cushion for my driver seat, I discovered that every ford dealer has access to every other ford dealers inventory, or at least the ones in my area did. I was able to find 2 and bought them both.

    Coolant leak - use stop leak?

    Thank you all for your replies. I found a local shop that does a lot of ford work and just did the water pump and timing chains on an explorer. While it is torn apart, they are also suggesting replacing the phasers, solenoids, all 3 timing belts and tensioners, spark plugs and water pump...

    Seat cushion shot on 2015 - 95K miles with AC and Heat

    Has anyone dealt with their seat cushion wearing out? I have 97K on mine and my wife and I couldn't go for more than an hour without our backs starting to hurt. We are both in pretty good shape. What I was told by an upholsterer was that these cushions don't hold up due to all the holes in...

    Coolant leak - use stop leak?

    Thank you both for this info. I was wondering what the shop hours were for a water pump. They said it could take 2 days. From what I have read, I should also have the chains replaced. The dealer that quoted $2700 said the chains only represent $100 of that $2700 so I figured I might as well...

    Coolant leak - use stop leak?

    Thanks for everyone’s reply. 50 years ago I tore apart motors in my backyard, changed clutches in front of my house and did just about everything to my car. Those days are long past me now. I still do oil changes and brake jobs but something like this is why I have a day job. But thanks for...

    Coolant leak - use stop leak?

    The mechanic who pressure tested it said it was leaking from the cover. Just to confirm, this could still mean that these seals are shot???

    Coolant leak - use stop leak?

    Thank you for the advise. Do you recommend a Ford dealer or should a good mechanic be able to handle it. The guy I use said he doesn’t feel like dealing with it, I guess due to what a pain it is to fix.

    Coolant leak - use stop leak?

    I am slowing losing coolant and a pressure test showed it coming from the water pump housing which my mechanic said is a bear of a job to get to. My question is, is it safe to try a stop leak product or will that make things worse. Is there a downside to keep adding coolant as needed? I have...

    Electric oiler for turbo's

    My apologies on where I posted this. I guess I need to review that better. Thanks for the reply. Interesting to know that.

    Electric oiler for turbo's

    My understanding of the turbo's is when you shut the motor off, the oil stops pumping to the turbo's even though they may still be spinning. I've been told to wait a bit before turning the motor off to allow for them to slow down. Has anyone ever heard of an electric oil pump that kicks in...

    I own a 2015 with 94K miles. This is my third one including the Yamaha 6 cylinder and the V8 model. I was thinking of selling this one because my seat cushion lost its support ( heated and AC) and I’ve had some issues with losing coolant but I decided today to put some money into it and keep...
