    Did I Get Vandalized By Rats?

    Popped my hood one morning and found this. Is this the beginnings of a rat's nest? (Also, that same morning when I turned it on, it was running very rough. Was also throwing code P0133, but I honestly don't remember if it had that code the day before this or not.)

    Transmission Slow to Engage Reverse

    On Friday night, a girl I talk to asked me what I would do if my Lincoln ever became undriveable (I had apparently neglected to tell her about my experiences with ball joints and broken timing chain tensioners and the fun my dad and I had fixing them). I began to tell her "that won't happen. the...

    I'll give a little background on the car... '01 with about 140,000 miles on it. Last September it snapped a tensioner, and sat for several months before we tore everything apart.

    Bank 1, Bank 2 confusion

    New One From California

    Hello, and Happy New Years to everyone.. I have an 01 Lincoln LSV8. Bought it for $2500 almost 3 years ago, and so far it's been interesting, to say the least. I've changed a coil, some spark plugs, the alternator, brakes, rotors, and had to get a new catalytic converter. And of...
