    How to replace antifreeze in Lincoln MARK VIII?

    Just pop a frost plug. That will get rid of most of the block coolant. ;)

    What did you do to your Mark VIII today?

    If you don't have jackstands go buy some. Its a basic tool everyone who works on their cars should have. A set of ramps is very handy too.

    My first Mark VIII Project

    I just Googled a stock Mark VIII rear end and got 3.08. Close enough. You don't see how fast your cars go? Must be an old school thing. ;) I dunno, I used to field a Cutlass with a 502 and a fairly tall rear end. The front end started to lift off around 135 and it was far too exciting to go...

    My first Mark VIII Project

    The computer mainly. My W3Z2 allows unlimited speed and I get 6 grand in first gear. She has done 240 Km/h, almost lost the sun roof. ;) The 3.08 rear end makes fast easy and I think it has the best performance out of the box. They steadily nerfed that as they produced more cars. They took a...

    Driving a 2018 Ford fiesta with no key ignition Vs a Mark 8 keyed ignition

    LOL. I have a 2017 Fiesta SFE with the 998cc motor. Its just a hoot to drive and I'm down to one tank a month. Tiny turbos rule. ;) Mine did not come with that option and I don't care one way or the other. ;)

    Bougt a Fiesta

    If anyone needs a cheap little car, these things are awesome. I have about 300 km on it and I'm impressed. Amazing low end torque and short shifting is the way. Get on it and it gets down the road real quick. Great handling and good suspension, soaks up my crappy backcountry roads well. A little...

    Bougt a Fiesta

    A bit OT but I will pick it up next week. A 1 liter Ecoboost 5 speed hatch, hard to find here on Vancouver Island. So it comes at 125hp and 145 ft/lbs in a 1000kg package. One can pull about 170hp without getting into new bits. Impressive motors, they really are. My Sammy will get Vintage...

    How can the radio drain the battery??

    That stuff is actually fairly easy to do yourself. You need a meter that does amps and you remove one terminal on the battery and put the meter between the terminal and the battery wire. That gives you the current from the battery and you can see whether it's too much from that number. There...
