    Negative LTFT???

    So I have playing around with my BlueDriver, and the truck's been running good lately. I noticed that the LTFT % is in the negative for both banks. (at idle) They are still roughly the same if I drive 3 miles to the office and still around the same after a long hour country road drive. <img...

    Another FL400s

    Still doing ok for me. This is the fourth one I cut open and looks good. I'll continue to cut them open if I have time, but may not get every one. Until I see an issue, I'll continue using them. If I do come across an issue, that's when I'll switch to the new Champ made CARQUEST. This one...

    Got me a BlueDriver

    After seeing some reviews on youtube about the BlueDriver, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on one. I got a smartphone last weekend (don't laugh- had my last dumbphone for almost 9 years) so now I can do apps and stuff like that. Anyhow, ordered it through Amazon on Sunday morning and it...

    Civic brake rotor options

    Greetings, I'm going to be doing a brake job on the GF's 02 Civic next weekend, and I went to an awesome little import auto parts store that we have locally. I got the Akebono Pro Act pads and the hardware clips for a fairly good price. (based on suggestions here on BITOG) As far as rotors...

    Problem with back button on BITOG

    Greetings, the last two or three days, I have had an extra web page get listed in the history on almost all BITOG pages. So I cannot hit the back button, it tries to go to the tracking page and nothing happens. Anyone else having any similar issues? I have cleared cookies, temp, etc...

    Replaced my coil today - Motorcraft

    If its not one thing, it's another. Lately I have had some random ignition arc sounds come through the speakers (not consistent). Sounded just like the sound the coil makes when you short it to ground. So I decided to investigate the coil and noticed a big crack on it that seemed to grow...

    Fuel pump o-ring Motorcraft pump

    Well, my fuel pump has finally gone south on the Ranger. So I just ordered one from the dealer and they had it within the hour. Anyway (besides the fact that they bent me on the price a bit) the new Motorcraft doesn't seem to include the mounting o-ring. Should I just reuse the old one, or...

    Just wondering? Fram Ultra..

    I have a dumb question for you guys. I'm an OEM guy (MC and no reason to switch yet) and have never used a Fram Ultra, but one thing I am seeing when guys cut them open is that they look like they have hairy fibers sticking out all over the filter media. Does anyone worry that any of these...

    Never ending Ranger problems-

    Oh boy, the problems never seem to stop. I recently had a coolant leak, had my Sirius take a dump, had a pilot bearing go bad on me, then I had the strange rear end leak that I MacGyvered with permatex. So the rear main I installed with the clutch a bit over a month ago didn't play nice with...

    Strange rear end leak

    Well, I now have a strange rear end leak. A month ago when I dropped the transmission, as I pulled the driveline, I got a few tablespoons of gear oil drip out of the front of the yoke. I also noticed the yoke bolts were damp. The main seal is dry. It's not leaking from the outer seal. The...

    3rd Motorcraft FL400s cut open

    Nothing of interest here other than the can put up one heck of a fight to cut open. 328K filter change. 4K OCI w/ MC5w-30 The top of the media got sliced by the cutter which you can see as a bend in the seam. <img src="http://imageshack.com/a/img537/2654/6e86d4.jpg" class="post-image"...

    New clutch shudder?

    Hello all, I recently did a clutch job due to my other post about being hard to shift. All the parts I pulled off were in very good shape, and there were no drivability issues what so ever. The pilot was shot so I had a very hard time getting into gear from neutral. Replaced everything...

    Rented a Prius

    I took a mini vacation, and as usual when traveling far away, I spend a couple bucks at Budget and get me a car. They're nearby and have good online rates, etc. Anyhow, Sunday when I was picking up the car, they walked me out to a Prius. I was sort of upset/shocked at first sight. I was like...

    Very hard to shift- pilot bearing??

    Greetings, I am hoping all that is wrong is that my pilot bearing/ clutch/ slave is all that is wrong, but recently on the Ranger, it can be a bear to get into gear from neutral. Symptoms showed a few months back, the atf in the trans was pushing a year (25K) so I changed the fluid, and...

    OTC products

    Lately I've noticed that there are a lot of good OTC products available. Years back I was only getting stuff locally, but then stumbled across sites like Auto Nerd, Chemical Men, and Alans Polishes (the names have been changed to protect the innocent), and have pretty much been getting...

    Motorcraft FL400s part 2

    Oil change number 81 on the truck 324,000 mi with MC 5w30 4K OCI I took advice from sayjac and picked up the HF pipe cutter along with a 20% off coupon. It ended up being 17 and change. A bit more civilized than the previous way I did it <a...

    Yay! No tears in Motorcraft filter.

    Have been slightly on edge with all the recent Purolator media tears, so I decided to dig up the last FL400s I took off about a month ago. This was taken off at 320,000 with a 4k OCI of MC 5w-30. This is probably my 80th MC filter on the truck. I didn't feel like pulling out the Dremel and...

    No more MC filters at AZ

    I stopped by AZ today for MC oil and a 400s, and noticed there were no more MC filters anywhere. Not even a spot for them on the shelf. I asked the parts guy and he said AZ pulled them because they didn't sell very well, and "Fram and STP have the same filtration as the MC" so they stopped...
