    OEM / original Motorcraft SC shocks, 70,000 miles

    I've seen interest in used, OEM shocks here. I just had my replaced with new Tokico shocks, and had them save the originals. I'm not saying they are good - I replaced them - but they did still perform the firm / soft change and didn't bounce like bad shocks do. I see a little oil weeping, I...

    Tilt steering malfunction

    I just noticed that my tilt steering column does not lock. I'm short, so I like the steering wheel all the way down, but without pulling the locking lever I can easily lift the column up. It's also simply drops down to the lowest position without the lever being pulled. It makes a racheting...

    Vibration, coolant leak, questions

    I have a lovely low miles 95 5 SPD. I don't drive her much, so I don't have a feel for right or wrong. I've had to add a little coolant many of the times I've driven her after sitting for a few weeks. When I turn her off, sometimes there is wisp of steam from the firewall and a hiss, but not...

    Sun roof interior panel

    I have a 95 SC and the plastic tab on the panel that clicks into the track is missing on one side. ISO new panel - interior is gray but I'll take any color. I'd really like an early model with the vent louvers, if that will fit. I imagine it will.

    blower maintenance

    I have a used S port of unknown pedigree. I have a snout rebuild kit at the ready. Before I dig into that, I'd like some advise on what to look for in terms of wear and tear. The rotors appear to have a bit of wear, but not bad. I could provide a pic or two on that. The whole thing makes...

    What would happen if I just blocked off my IAC with a solid gasket? She idles better with the IAC plug off than in.

    M90s on other platforms

    The Eaton M90 was on a bunch of other cars - GM, mercedes I think, etc - so what kind of novel plumbing solutions did they use? I bet there are other hats for example that weren't so restrictive. Anyone ever research this?
