    Just a quick question. I have a no crank problem with my 2000 LS V6 MT. I get nothing, no clicks no dimming lights. The PATS is functioning correctly, slow flash before inserting the key, stays on for 3-4 seconds when I try cranking. I swapped out the relay and got same result. I checked...

    ForScan connection issue

    I have been having several issues with the LS lately and decided to get a PC based scanner to see if it would help. I downloaded a version of ForScan and purchased an ELM237 (Ford Modified w/can switch). When ever I try to connect to the LS I get "Unable to connect to vehicle. Please make sure...

    Bad run of luck

    Well in May I will have had the LS for 14 years and 160,000 miles (I purchase it used). Not sure I will make it there. During the summer the rear bearing started getting really loud. I dreaded the job but ordered a new bearing and proceeded to remove the rear knuckle and press the bearing...

    Secondary Air Flow insufficient P0411

    2000 V6 MT 190,000 miles. I had this code 3 or 4 years ago and it was corrosion on the relay connector (caused by a front end accident that damaged the splash shield on the driver's side). I cleaned up the contacts and was fine until August when the code returned. Hoping for a better repair...

    Am I crazy?

    My 2000 LS V6 MT has 188K miles runs well but is fairly well rusted underneath. My car plans were to drive it through the winter. After a fourth winter on my snows they would not be useful as snow tires. The summer tires should be good for all of next spring summer and fall. During that time...

    Upper radiator hose rant

    Just got a replacement upper radiator hose (the fitting to the throttle body snapped off my original) for my 2000 V6. It looks fine (Rock Auto UR Part) but the lower fitting going to a heater hose is too large (one inch rather than the 3/4 inch on the OEM) so off I go looking for an adapter.

    Which Shocks from Ford

    I had another thread going on front end noise. Since the thinking there was its likely the front shocks, I'm investigating which ones to order. I've searched and didn't find any good write-ups on which shocks are which for 6 cylinder cars (mine's a 2000 V6 with Manual Transmission). The...
