Re: lower balljoint question?

Pump a little grease into the new ball joint and watch where the old grease escapes. They probably want the joint oriented a certain way to prevent excess grease from being ported directly onto the...

Re: Stumble on acceleration

My truck did exactly that for the better part of a year. One day the check engine light illuminated. My code reader showed P0430. It was a plugged cat coming off the left cylinder bank.

Long story...

Re: E3 spark plugs?

Exactly.

Spark plugs are just another link in the chain. You'll never get a "hotter" spark by just changing the plugs. You'd have to upgrade the entire ignition system.

Go OEM.

Re: spark plugs.... what type..how hard.

You can get Motorcraft SP-412 plugs off of ebay for less than $3 each shipped to your door. Why install anything else?

Re: Nitrogen filled tires

Nitrogen most certainly expands and contracts with temperature change. Normal cold tire pressure on a B777-200 is 210 psi. It's not unusual to see pressures around 250 psi after landing from the heat...

Engine hydro-locked? Will the starter spin it with the spark plugs removed?

Re: 2011 Recall

My dealer notified me by phone about four weeks ago that my truck might be affected, but I wanted something in writing from Ford before I took any action.

Re: Tranny Question

For my truck it's Mercon V ATF.

Your owners manual should have that info. Look here: https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp

Re: Tranny Question

There's no need to flush a manual transmission, gravity does that for you.

There are two plugs, a drain plug and a fill plug.

The procedure is to remove the drain plug, allow the oil to...

Re: check oil light

Not if the indicated oil pressure on your gauge is wrong. How can you be assured it's correct?

Your dipstick is broken and therefore is inaccurate. What other measures do you have to confirm the...

Re: General clutch maintenance.

Regular clutch fluid (usually a DOT 3 brake fluid) changes and tranny fluid changes will ensure a long and happy life for your truck.

Re: 2011 Ranger Production/Incentives Figures

I got the same deal on my '11.
