Went to leave this morning and put her in reverse....nothing! Put her in drive....nothing!
We (that have owned Ford Autotragic transmissions) officially call that "Morning Sickness"

Basically, give it a little time to warm up, and it works "okay"...

Re: radiator/coolant upper hose

Re: Finally bought one! My first XR4Ti

Those that haven't done this may not want to try, but for the sake of
the argument, unbolt the hood from it's hinges, close the hood, go for
a drive...

Re: Whats your MPG?

For mileage, Rockette was getting 17 or so in town, with the auto trans, 22 at the most on the highway, she blew up the C3, and I stuck a 91 Mustang 2.3L T5 in there, picked up 2 or so mpg in the city, haven't gone for a long highway run yet, but expect to get 25ish mpg... Just got back from a 156....

It shouldn't be out of the crankshaft, if it fell out when you pulled
the engine, you should replace it...
