Re: Turn signal/hazard switch

Not sure this helps.. The flashing relay works by electric current drawn by the load (lights) heating a bi-metallic strip inside the relay. How fast the bi-metallic heats up determines the blinking rate. So if you hear the relay clicking fast then it means the current draw is higher than normal. It ...

Re: After a 20 year hiatus...I shall return to Merkur Carlisle.

I doubt I'll find a 24v Cosworth 2.9L engine from the UK complete with ECM and harness... I usually go to the Import show and that flea market always seems to have something. Don't think I will find anything interesting at the Ford flea market. In any case - I do like stocking up on consumables or s...

Re: 5 Beeps

Speedo and cruise are tip top. Glad to hear...but just be aware the speed sensors die eventually. Took a failed unit apart and it looks like poor weather seal. In my Scorpio is was replaced around 40k by the original owner and then that replacement failed in my hands at 82k I designed an adapter ci...

Re: Day dreaming about a 4.0L in a Scorpio

They don't look like the Tom Morana rockers (http://www.moranav6racing.com). Wonder where they came from...
BTW, do the 2.9 Valve covers fit the 4.0?


So this is the official start of the 4.0L swap?

Don't the manual trans cars also have an air pump?

Re: 5 Beeps

Fuel computer also starts beeping all the time when the speed sensor goes. Of course in this case the speedo and cruise control won't work either.

Re: Dr. Jekyll... rough running 2.9

At this point, the whole EGR system is new: EGR valve, control solenoid, PFE. Guess what?... the engine still runs poorly. (For the heck of it I did unplug the computer for a good 20 minutes.) What's next?... ... throw another $50-something at it and replace the MAP sensor. I'd rather not go this r...

Re: 5.0L XR Shiny Engine Bay Pics

John, Hope you don't mind me asking...After swapping the motor - how do you manage registration in your state?
Is the car registered as a Classic?

Re: Dr. Jekyll... rough running 2.9

Tube is not brass. It's like a low grade 200 series stainless. Trust me, it would never last if it was brass.

But it is easily bendable. so Joe62Tampa - Be careful - you don't want to twist the tube.

Re: Dr. Jekyll... rough running 2.9

So the car is running OK now? The sudden resolution of the problem and the associated EGR code sounds suspect. I think your EGR was stuck open and this was causing the poor running. It then suddenly released and now the engine runs fine. In hindsight I don't know why you assumed that the codes 33 an...

Re: High Idle - IAC Valve

A sporadic power upset to the EECIV will cause a high idle. This high idle typically will go away after you turn the car off and restart it....until the power upset happens again. I have experienced this. But I would not say there is a mystery surrounding this. In the above case, and in many other c...
