    Burnt coils?

    I bought new coils on ebay on the cheap and they worked well. Now i go to the wrecker yard and pull coils from wrecked cars for a song. Some people are stuck on Motorcraft parts, they maybe better but these are old cars now. They are just not worth pumping money into.

Put your key in the ignition turn it to on (not start) and listen for the fuel pump to start pumping fuel. If its quiet you can hear it. If you don;t...

    01V6 motor mount replacement level of difficulty

    01V6 236k miles, motor mounts are crushed. What is the level of difficulty to replace them. This is still my daily driver but the number of repairs needed are growing by the day. The vacuum lines are as brittle as dry spaghetti. Even the thick rubber hoses snap like twigs. Chasing the P codes...

    New LS owner here, with long cranking issues.

    My 01 fuel pump died about 125k miles, I would bet it's the fuel pump. If you are going to keep the car get a good fuel pump not a cheap one. You will need to pull out the back seat lower cushion and look for the fuel pump cover. Remove the hoses and power cord then the entire fuel pump housing...

    Need part number for vacuum harness

    many thanks but i know it is out there because the ford f150 has the same looking harness and there are plenty available, i may have to buy the f150 harness and just modify the length of hose line. The f150 harness is about $20 online.

    Oil in my spark plug holes

    I've run my 01 V6 for years with oil in the plug wells, The heat generally degrades the rubber boots. You can buy replacement boots on Ebay cheap. I use a suction device to suck out any oil in the wells and replace the boots. As said already the oil comes from the gaskets leaking oil into the wells.
