  1. Anyone know an easy way to make the driver's power seat work better? Pretty sure mine is dying...

      New actuator maybe ? We've had to replace them in the company cars because of all the people using them and moving the seat . (2008 Impalas and Cobalts). 

  2. I'm a fan of this new banner!

  3. Looking for opinions of brands of A/C compressors for the sable off rockauto.

      My store just got a 2004 Sable LS Premium sedan on trade, a geriatric special with black leather and 43k miles.

      Not looking for a new car, only an A/C compressor....

      OReilly sells Murray aftermarket compressors.  I see very few new compressors back.  Remans are a whole different story.  Replace the drier and orifice as well.  Also, the condenser may need replacement as some cannot be flushed.

  4. Sable needs a new passenger side ball joint. Looking for Brand recommendations asap. thanks in advance.

      Nick and I had this discussion last night. Moog greasable ones with energy suspension grease boots

      Anything that isn't super cheap. And avoid AutoZone.

    3. Bull Geek

      Yes.  Good luck finding the grazeable ones.  Moog is pretty dang good.  Just slip the boot over what is there - the Moog/OEM boot won't last.

  5. 3rd catalytic converter delete, best thing ever!

  6. Allison might be getting a MagnaFlow muffler soon.....

      The only issue with Flowmaster 40's is the insane amount of interior drone.

      I hadn't thought of that, any other suggestions? I want a Flowmaster, but would another version be more suited to this application?

    4. Angrod

      Angrod

      The Flowmaster Delta 40 is supposed to be quieter and the 50 series is quieter as well.

  7. Allison still has a vac leak somewhere. Using the Torque app the vac pressure was between 21.6 and 21.5 at idle, tomorrow I'll be looking with FORscan. Any ideas for where it could be?

      Use carb cleaner to look. LIM/UIM gaskets or PCV elbow.

  8. Almost one week till Carlisle, I still need to prep Allison!!

    1. Angrod

      I need to prep my car too! I wonder if I should clean the engine?

      I washed and waxed thirdbull and then it rained hard.. grrr. Will have to clean again...damn weather

  9. Anyone have ideas for a muffler tip?

      Stock Mustang GT tip, 3" stainless steel with a 45 degree cut.

      Redtail performance has a good selection for good prices. That is where I got mine.

  11. Anyone know if vulcan plugs would fit a Duratec?

    1. -chart-

      -chart-

      They will screw in the holes. But the gap is all wrong and bending the outer electrode is BAD.

    2. TaurusKev

      TaurusKev

      I wouldn't do it. From my experience, DOHC Spark plugs are longer, and OHV are shorter, so it may run like s**t.

      After years of resisting, I finally got a smart phone. Guess I'll have to upgrade my car's audio system to include Bluetooth connectivity so I can play my music (using Sync in the '12 has really, really, REALLY grown on me!).

  14. Day 1 of Ford Nationals: FANTASTIC

  15. Didn't start agian (jumped it with the F-150), AND the CEL came on AGAIN same code P1506. Any easy fixes for the code (other than buying a new IAC)?

    3. Angrod

      they might not make 899s but yellow fogs always look great, and actually function.

    4. ShelbyRacer78

      ShelbyRacer78

      893s are the same bulb and voltage

  22. Ford Nationals: Fantasic time, lots of fun putting on new parts, meeting new faces and being the only Sable sedan there!
