    Intermittent overheating issue- totally confused

    I think so. Is the coolant boiling / bubbling in the degas bottle? That is what mine was doing until I replaced that actuator and then all was well.

    Panoramic sunroof

    Have a 2014 mkZ with the big sunroof. It has just started not working because the shade is bunching up as opposed to moving freely backward. Anyone have experience or knowledge about this thing? Is it glued up there to something that maybe came unglued? Thanks

    Intermittent overheating issue- totally confused

    It's called the hydraulic actuator I think. This thread will tell you a bit about all the issues I had until milehighmikey jumped in with into about that actuator. The thing cost me over $200 but it did fix all my problems. mhm recommended against a boneyard actuator...

    Intermittent overheating issue- totally confused

    I had a similar issue with my 2001 V6. There is a little thing that controls the cooling fan and it wasnt speeding my fan up enough. Coolant was bubbling up in the reservoir and car would overheat. I cant recall what the thing is called and I will say it was very hard to get. A low mileage V6...

    mkZ hybrid

    Yeah I know. She bought both hybrids with "her" own money tho. (It is interesting though when I was bringing home the bacon, it WAS our money.) Much of hers comes from a not big enuf settlement from an almost fatal head on accident in 2015 in her previous Z which was not her fault and she did...

    mkZ hybrid

    That is an interesting idea. I have a scan tool. But it's not an expensive one. I have forscan too. Thanks for the brain kick. My wife tho is starting to cause problems! She wants to buy the car back from me and sell it. She needs the $$$s. Dont we all. Money is flying out the window...

    Insurance

    Going to do that. Friend suggested Costco. Wife wants to check AAA. It just doesnt make any sense. I suppose I could drop comprehensive and collision but the car is still like new. Hate to have a dent I have to pay to fix.

    mkZ hybrid

    This car is 8 years old and has 161,000 miles. It's been perfect, wife maintained it 100%. It does seem to me that the blue battery indicator drops a bit faster than it used to. I dunno. Dont want to have to replace the battery pak! Thanks joegr

    Insurance

    How can this be - yesterday I looked closely at what we are paying for auto insurance. Amazingly we are being charged MORE for our 2014 mkZ than for a brand new Maverick. Called them (USAA) and woman said well old cars dont have all the safety features of new ones. Um maybe you should think...

    mkZ hybrid

    Anyone have thoughts on how long the battery pak will last in these? I bought my wife's 2014 hybrid Z recently when she bought a new Maverick hybrid. With gas prices the way they are, $6.39 now for reg here, I wanted the nearly 40mpg of the Z. But I'm 'only' getting 37.2 :( I'm thinking maybe...

    How do you feel about Biden NOW?

    So true and so sad. California has been on a steady downward slope since I moved here. And I don' think it's my fault! There are virtually no republicans in government. This state shows what happens when dimmocrats take over. And the country is following.

    How do you feel about Biden NOW?

    We all, or most of us, know how he got there. And probably all of us wish he hadn't.

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Today I drove it! :) Hadn't in a month or two. Cause the driver's window fell into the door. Again. I think it's happened almost 1/2 dozen times since I bought it new. Like to send Will Smith to the home of whoever designed this mechanism. OK anyway it gets worse. No the LS didn't fail me...

    How do you feel about Biden NOW?

    Biden, pelosi, schumer etc are sadly destroying the formerly great USA. Also the Gov of Washington is planning to ban new ICE powered cars in 2030.

    03 LS V8 What brand differential oil should we use

    I thought it was sealed and lifetime fluid in it? That's what it says on my 2001 getrag version.
