I wanted to mention, but forgot, that you likely need a new radiator, or to have yours cleaned professionally. From lore, if an engine overheats in traffic, it's likely the pump, but if it overheats...

How do you know which cylinder is misfiring? Or is it possibly all of them, at different times? Have you tried disconnecting one spark plug wire at a time to see if the cylinders are...

The 240 is just about the same displacement as the 4.0, FWIW. I'd bet the 240 has more torque.
Many people towed with manual transmissions for many years. My grandfather used to distribute Kozy...

I still like Motorcraft and Purolator. Both are the cotton wad type, I think. Unless they switched to pleated. Either way, most crud stuff will flow in the first few miles as you note, but you...

Where do you put the 2 extra fuel injectors?

Only bothersome, to me, part is the K&N. Getting them oiled properly so you don't coat the MAF takes care and meticulous work. Too much and the MAF...

lmarkie:Bank 1x1 is working fine, Bank 1x2 working around .8 volts, Bank 2x1 working fine, Bank 2x2 around .8 volts.

From what I understand, things are fine. The upstream (#1) sensor is fine on...

The few that I have done did not seem to line up 'exactly'. Memory of the marks being 1/2 tooth off perk to the top when I think about it. The mark, actually just the cam, was a little skewed in...

The only difference is the 'pulling' part. I have replaced regulators on vehicles without touching the alternator. The gizzards, besides the regulator, are functional, or it would not put out the...

I suspect that the regulator has gone nuts[tech term...], and is giving full field to the alternator so it produces its full output no matter the base battery voltage. Your alternator is working...

You do not even have to pull it completely off the frame. You can tip up the front end and support it with a couple 2X4s. Or a rocking chair, or anything that comes to mind that will give you...

Bank 2 is the 'front' bank on a sideways v6. Easier to get to? I dunno. If you get no switching, then it is either the sensor or the wiring. The sensor starts to work when it gets hot, and uses a...

From what I have read, the O2 sensors are all the same. The difference being in the length of the wires. For my 2 cents, I'd want the 'best' sensors upstream of the converters. Sensors that 'flip'...

Were it me, I'd be heading to a boneyard or a dealer. The spool valve may be 'biased' back to its 'rest' position by a small spring. Your spring has sprung, fall has fell, summer's here and it's...

You can check that the IAC - Idle Air Control - is working by starting the engine from cold. The idle should be above 1,000rpms for ~30 seconds or so, then drop in steps to ~750. Put the selector...

The IAT sensor changes resistance with temperature. It may be broken and sending infinite resistance, or the connector is loose/fell off.
