Re: Brake Problem and Now Another Problem

The problem resurfaced yesterday. My son and I were going to Auto Zone. When I started the car to return home I applied the brakes and noticed it. I had heard the relay while I was driving over, but coming home we heard nothing. Also, the brake light was on all the time. I got home safely. I checke...

Given that you gotta weld the sucker on, I'm not even sure a fender painted the correct color would do you much good.

The 41 MPG Fusion Hybrid will also be good step in the right direction. Some of the early reviewers were claiming an average of 45 mpg in city driving, which is on par with the Smart FourTwo. Fuel efficiency of the Smart with the far more practical size of the Fusion, not bad.

VW has made some interesting "special" edition cars in the past. Of course there's the K2 and the Trek, but don't forget the Golf Harilequin or the Jeans edtion Beetle or the

Brad, on the length of the 2.9, it doesn't surprise me that its a bit long. Given that its a 60 degree engine, look at the offset between the cylinder banks.

Definite fishinessseseesse.. The only way that you could lock out OD on the Scorpio A4LD, besides doing something goofy to the shifter assembly is mess with the valve body. Unlike later A4LDs, there is no ECU controlled 3/4 shift inhibit on the Scorpio unit. That said, if you are not paying attentio...

Who could justify Rick Wagoner waiting in the security check line for TSA screeeners to do their thing, waiting for all passengers to load, seat and buckle up, wait while the jumbo jet is cleared to taxi/cleared to take off, and repeat tthat process on landing and disembarkng?

Paul,

I'd put on a new filter, pull the dizzy and run the oil pump with a drill, then check the filter again.

There is a company that manufacturers a Hall Effect sensor with the correct mounitng and specs for a Ford. That said, I do not know if the output signal is similar enough that it could function in place of the Scorpio VSS,

That shows you the power to weight ratio of some of those sport planes. It looks like he basicly throttled up until the plane had no choice but point nose-up and then hovered, lowering the throttle until he made it back down. If you've ever played on a flight sim with a plane like a Chipmunk or an E...

So what would I have to do to convert it to 220?
You'd need a dual pole. 15 amp breaker, a 230V ourlet and plug and to swap some connections around in the motor. I will get that connection info for you.
