Re: After 15 years, I own another Scorpio

A trans cooler is an absolute must. My transmission was rebuilt in a less-than-stellar fashion a few years back (she still leaks...you know how that goes!), but I credit the cooler to keeping the transmission going strong.

Re: A BIG THANKS to the MCA!

Those OEM pieces are awesome! I'm going to experiment on my originals now that I have factory replacements! I've had some ideas for awhile now, but I don't experiment on stuff unless I have a good replacement waiting for me in case my vision ends up looking like crap. lol

Carlisle Weather Forecast

Here's the latest report from AccuWeather.com. Looks like it's going to be a warm one, but nothing too extreme. Last week they were calling for 70s, which I have to admit sounded better to me, but 83°F on Saturday isn't too bad! Friday 6/10/2011 Periods of rain High Temperature: 87°F RealFeel: 85°F ...

Testing Low Coolant Warning (Idiot) Light

I was wondering if there is anyway to test the low coolant warning light without draining the coolant? My wife's car has a slight leak in the radiator which we will be taken care of by the end of June, but in the meantime I'd like to know the idiot light works in case the leak worsens while the car ...

Phil's always been great to me too. He's gone above and beyond for me on several occasions and I'd vouch for him any day of the week. OPMD.com is a great company with great products and service, so anyone reading this should not hesitate for a moment to buy from OPMD!
