What a coincidence...the car I had the most trouble with when the EGR failed was a 1979 F150 with a 302 engine. It knocked like a popcorn popper until I replaced the broken vacuum line that...

Does the "air" that you get out of the radiator smell like gasoline? If so, that's a blown head gasket.

The usual way to bleed air out of the system is to...

I seem to recall you being very innovative, and perhaps you can come up with a way to adapt the Taurus part to your Windstar. However, I expect the Windstar to be heavier than a Taurus, so maybe the...

I don't know how far this politi-chat will go before we're shut down, but I agree with you both.

Are they actually magnesium or aluminum? Looks like aluminum. Magnesium wheels are lighter, but the material is porous, so can not hold air without a coating of silicon rubber.

Also, the...

Reverse flushing works better if you have a heater valve that...
