It's the TPS. I'd bet money on it. Buy a TPS.

Re: Replacement Carpet?

If you have a carpet that isn't torn, then you can re-dye it on the cheap. I have had good results from a product called RiT Dye. It's available at Wal-Mart (in the laundry detergent aisle) for about $3 a bottle. I used a big garbage can (soaped and rinsed, of course) and about 10 bottles of the stu...

Re: Overheating!

Eaton- I hope you get it worked out. I dealt with very similar issues on my first XR even after flushing with new tstat. The inconsistencies bugged me the most....well aside form the occasional overheating issues. If I can help you let me know. I would put another thing in your mind...if the heated ...

Re: Overheating!

Hell.... that makes you a HERO, fella. Is that about how you see it? Do you roll up your sleeves when you sit down at your keyboard? I bet you do. Don't sweat it, guy. If I wanted to make false claims, I'd accuse you of wanting to help people. Let me ask you something, Zero. And I'd never dream to d...

Re: Overheating!

The more I think about this, the more I'm remembering the woes of my first XR. 2 things.... 1) thesameguy...A pinhole probably means that you've lost more coolant than you know of (or think you know) and it's running hotter because there is really less coolant in the system. Also less pressure in th...

Re: No adapter Big Brakes

John V - you're the real deal, man. When I blew out a rear end I called him up. He spent 1hr and a 1/2 helping me to find a used one EVEN THOUGH I had called to price the Supra setup. He said I simply didn't need it for a daily driver. I just don't believe that John is trying to "sell us" ...

Re: Overheating!

It has to due with saturated vapor pressure. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/kinetic/vappre.html scroll down to "boiling point". Increasing the pressure increases the boiling point. I had a professor that made room temperature water boil in a vacuum canister one time...pretty co...

Re: Locking Differential

One of these years the Good Lord will see fit to send me a Quaife ...... for $500.....shipped. That will be the year I finally break down and buy that beach-front property in Arizona that John B priced me. Only $250k!!! It's a real bargain! I can die a happy man....on the beach....in Arizona....with...

Re: Differential leak

Just get a quality brand (Mobil, Castrol, Valvoline, etc..) 75w-90 semi-synthetic or fully synthetic gear oil. I *think* Ford was buying fluids from Castrol in those days, and people may swear by this brand or another....but it doesn't really matter. Do yourself a favor and replace the seals now. Do...

Re: Bubbles / surging in coolant after turning off engine

Dude, dont over - think it. The gurgling sound is the resevoir cap. Replace it. If its running cold, thats going to be a thermostat thats worn out too. Replace both. We're talking about $10 for both and a 1/2 hr of time.

Re: sometimes car stumbles at steady cruise

TPS....betcha. I bet if you that if you just slightly let off the pedal at cruise...when it's bucking/hesitating...then it will act fine. Watching the boost gauge during that issue will have you believing that every time it hits "0" on the gauge it causes that problem. I chased that crap f...
