    Something possibly worth noting is that while I dozed in the waiting area for a couple of hours, I was able to get a sense of their business model. They generally don't have to deal with fluids or...

    I was hoping I wouldn't have further exhaust issues, but the hardware holding the passenger side cat to the exhaust manifold rotted away enough for the cat to drop a bit. Got new hardware put in for...

    You're the electronics expert, so your guess would be better than mine. I have no idea what thermistors are made of or how they are made, but it seems they are destined to fail in a certain...

    I managed to find only one aftermarket sensor in my area, and it measured defective in the same way as the rest. (I think they were all somewhere around the 6kohm range when they should have been...

    The rest of this post is the seemingly useless response from Ford, to which I did not bother responding (feel free to skip it):

    I don't know all the details, but better than no-one I guess.

    I tried another meter on the IAT sensor and got ~63kohms. I was able to replicate that with the first meter, so my problem was obviously something other than witchcraft. When I saw that, I had no...

    The temperature readings are from the scanner, and that was dead cold before starting the engine. The 12C was upon installation, and the 2C was after waiting a few hours. Both coolant sensors top out...

    Just when I thought I was going to get a break, the new coolant sensor from Ford is behaving the same as the old one. When the IAT was reading ~12C, the ECT was reading ~44C with a resistance of...

    I finally have a bit of an update. The NKL4 is basically a carbon copy of the LLK3 but with a slight refinement. The NKL4 seems hardly worth it unless you do a lot of highway driving.

    I have an Autel AL439, which has more than paid for itself by localizing misfires to particular cylinders when COPs crapped out without triggering a code. I had a look at the live data with engine...

    When I've done the suction method using the fill tube in my 2000 MGM, I've gotten about a gallon with some left in the pan. You should be good with 5-6 quarts if everything is the same on your 08.

    Are you sure the ARA3 PCM is good? My understanding from what I've read is that CVPI PCMs do not have PATS functionality and so any key that fits could, in theory, be used. I have been using a 2000...
