    Front Suspension Upper Arm Ball Joint Dust Cover

    Thank you for the inputs. I searched the internet and found similar boots with bolt, height and bottom diameter dimensions. I need to take measurements of the ball joint to get the closest boots that will fit, unless some of you already know what the dimensions are and can pass them on to me.

    Front Suspension Upper Arm Ball Joint Dust Cover

    2005 LS Ultimate: Can anyone tell me whether I can just buy and replace the front suspension upper arm ball joint (rubber) dust cover or do I need to replace the whole upper arm/ball joint assembly? I appreciate if you know of sources were I can get just the dust cover if that repair is possible.

    2000lsv8 acceleration problems

    Nothing mentioned about coils. My experience with my 2005 LS V8 is that when accelerating hard from cruising at 50-55 mph, the car will start jerking; that's my signal to have the coils checked and replaced even though there are no trouble codes.

    5R55 Tranny Servo Bore Fix

    There is a TSB about repair of the servo bores. My 2005 LS was done back in 2011 when it had 43,600 miles on it under the extended warranty I purchased. TSB 09-12-12, I tried to attach the file but looks like it is too large. You can search the TSB on the internet.

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    I performed an experiment today to simulate my wife's weight; I used a bag of soil to put on the seat and sat on it to start the car - no issues with the wipers, thus I concluded that the wiper issue is not related to weight. However, looks like my wife and I found a work-around for her. I...

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    Check Car-Part.com, enter year and model and under the "Select Part" drop down menu, select Column Switch. You'll get a list of salvage yards that carry the switch; you can also select the geographical area for where to search. I believe the P/N for the switch for the 2000 LS (first gen) is...

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    I checked the wiring under the seat, wiggled all the connectors and repositioned the seat for both, my wife and I, since we both had the seat height at the bottom of the travel. My wife went to get the car out of the garage, started it up with no issues, but right after putting the trans in...

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    The wipers will cycle a few times (about 2-10 times) and stop. Someone on the T'Bird forum did mention about an electrolytic capacitor "drying up", but I doubt that in the hot environment of an engine compartment they would put an electrolytic capacitor in the FEM, wiper motor or column switch...

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    Thanks for the reply joegr. I did that; I did drive the car with my wife's memory position for the steering wheel, side mirrors, etc., and I had no issues. And once I let my wife sit behind the wheel without changing anything or even turning off the engine, the wipers turn on. I also looked in...

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    Still having the wiper issue on my 2005 LS Ultimate. Thanks to AmsterDutch recommendation of searching through car-part.com, I found a replacement column switch module from another 2005 LS at Mills Auto Parts in Indiana - it looked like new (the module includes the turn signal, wiper switch...

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    LS year and model in my "signature" (2005 LS V8 Ultimate). I tried Rock Auto's website and they don't list it. Hopefully its is something with the wiring rather than the switch itself.

    Windshield Wiper/Turn Signal Switch

    Intermittently, when the car is first started, the windshield wipers turn on even though the switch is set to off. After cycling the wiper switch the wipers will turn off. The extended warranty is ending this month and the dealer will be replacing the driver's rear lower suspension arm (noisy...

    Battery's dead; can't open trunk (helpful tip)⅕

    For some reason I had the same issue a few years back. I disconnected the battery and since the back of the car was partially out of the garage and it started to rain, I closed the trunk lid. The key would not open the trunk; it seems the key, when turned, activates a motor that opens the trunk.

    2000 lsv8 Grounding points

    Would be nice if everyone would enter the year and model of their LS as a "signature" (like I did) so everyone knows what model year the question is about. Anyhow, the attached PDF is for grounds for a 2005 LS V8. I have the 2005 Workshop Manual CD for the LS and looking through the various...

    Reinstalling Intake Manifold... where does ground strap go?

    I don't remember which link had the website to the service manual, but I bookmarked it. http://deneau.info/ls/ This will help you with the info about the intake manifold and other stuff like the torque on the bolts.

    Etc failsafe, bunch of codes

    Have you checked the battery? If the outside temp got up to 120F it may have affected the battery, and a weak or dying battery, from what I read in previous articles, can cause havoc with the car electronics.

    RPM surge when slowing down

    My 2005 LS Ultimate had TSB 09-12-12 performed on the trans at 43,600 miles (2011), but, this had to do more with hard shifting issues or loss of gear. I tried to upload the .pdf, but it's too large. You can Google it.
