Wow...its like night and day
My 2001 V6 LS could use some new speakers too. Would love to try some infinities.Over this weekend I installed 4 new blaupunkts speakers. They sound awesome. Also the regulator in the drivers door broke two weeks ago so I ordered and replaced the clips. But the cable started making a grinding noise so I replaced the regulator.
My wife said the LS was shifting hard. I thought it might be low of fluid. Being it's a sealed transmission I had her take it to the local dealer. 130.00 to diagnose it. Yep it's low of fluid. 250.00 for flush and fill. They then handed her an estimate for 2500.00 to replace a arms,front and rear sway bar links and an oil pan gasket.... Really glad those are thing I can do myself. lol
I have the same problem with my Lincoln LS 2002. It shifts hard could that be the problem? Fluid as in transmission fluid?

It could be worse, there are more and more cars that don't even have an engine oil dipstick.

... I'm amazed they could even build such a car on a moving production line...
Sorry Joegr, there was no way that radiator was coming out through the bottom and nowhere in my 2003 factory shop manual any mention of that. Besides, I ‘m just a driveway mechanic and I wouldn’t have been able to lift the car high enough to gain the clearance needed to pull it out from the bottom. Interestingly, the new radiator went in much easier than the old one came out.
