  1. Safe independence day to all. This day one year ago I watched the fire works from our patio. Wife was in the hospital. This year no noise here, and wife and I went to dinner with rest of the family. Our first since shutdown. Wife is many times better this year in her health. -chart-
  2. Misfire on 1-5. You have 3 coils in the pack. 1 & 5 share the same coil. Highly likely bad coil, one coil or connection. Fix what is wrong first, then look for other issues. -chart-
  3. Every G-4 of mine had the autolamp fail. The sensor in the center of the defrost panel is the failed part. That is 4 vehicles that had that fail. Fairly easy to replace. For what it worth, the sun load sensor also quits but you will likely not notice, it will just not adjust to sun or shade. -chart-
  4. If looking for a JY head light switch. Note: Sables likely use fog lights as both mine do. Taurus does not. Switches are the same except the Taurus does not have the position for fog lights. -chart-
  5. From RockAuto. RA for short. -chart-
  6. I have done my share, never, NEVER, plan to do a strut only. Assembly with new bearing spring and strut, as in pic from RA, OE part, I have used and they are fine. I have had 9 Bulls, have 3 '03's in my herd now with 6 drivers. Springs break. Just had one break in past December and I had no place to work and much going on and had to have a shop replace them. Spring broke in the middle so I had to limp slowly to a shop. They used Monroe and now the ride height is out of spec high side. I used the ready struts shown on my '03 Sable last Summer and they are fine. Now, these are OE car ride while the top end KYB are harsh. -chart-
  7. Great one. White walls important. Maybe 12 mpg on a good day. However my '67 Mercury Montclair got 20 under perfect conditions. 390 2bbl. Buick likely Quadrijet spread bore. Keep the pics online. -chart-
  8. First thing I would check is for broken wire in the accordion to the hatch. I had a backup light wire break and a speaker wire break on my '01 wagon. Of course my hatch gets lots of use. -chart-
  9. Age takes a toll same as miles. Sometimes age is worse. -chart-
  10. Might want to remove the cable from the lever on the tranny, and shift the lever by hand out of park pos. -chart-
  11. Sounds like a temperature sensor. Fans on when not needed and the apparent rich condition may be because it thinks it is very cold. -chart-
  12. I removed the front hose from the filter, pushed a hose on it and other end in a gas can. Hot wired to the pump side of the inertia switch. Used a jumper battery. No pressure there so no clamping needed. Was a wagon so the switch was in the back behind the door. -chart-

    Charts fire

    Restore crew removed a truck load, all clothes, and only thing loss to the trash bin, so far, kitchen chairs and food. -chart-

    Charts fire

    Source location clear, front porch where there "was" a light. 60 year old construction and wires so could be water leakage, animals, or just whatever happens. Attic fires in old wood go fast. No new work there in since we were here, 38 years. -chart-
