    Idle air control valve issues..

    Cleaned my 163k iac last week and it didn't seem to fix an odd problem I'm having. My issue is that any temperature below 15 degrees or over 85 will result in a intermittent rough start/idle. When <15 it'll occasionally 'chug' once started and sometimes die after a few seconds if it's <0, a...

    I've always had various annoying noises in back due to the rear speaker grills. I tried fixing it once by putting strips on velcro (Soft side) in between the grill and mounting plate with foam weatherstripping between the panel and grill assembly..It didn't work. Fast forward to today. Decided...

    Rear shocks

    I read a while ago of a rear shock (Sensa-trac?) that was a good/better fit for lowered marks. This shock is not made specifically for the M8 or Thunderbird but supposedly has better valving/firmer. I regret not saving the link like I usually do. I'm going to search for it again but wanted to...

    Rough cold starts

    She has the tendency to idle roughly upon first startup when it's <10-15 degrees outside. Happens anywhere from a minute to 3 depending on how cold it is.

    1 year oil change

    I changed my oil in mid-late May and have only driven it maybe 2,500 miles to date using a 820s and Penn high mileage. Would it be so bad to wait till early spring to switch it out? By that time it would have about 6k on it. I just feel like I should get more out of my oil changes since I...

    Yup, this will be the one.

    2005+ STS I've done a lot of looking around lately to see what i'd be interested in once the Mark can no longer serve as a reliable DD. This one has really caught my eye. ;) Only thing I don't like about it are the door panels, look cheap. It has projectors and led taillights (Including...
