    Yes, the standard tune is for 87 octane gas. I've heard of people getting tunes for a higher octane gas.

    I'm guessing he meant CVPI instead of PI. I know earlier CVPIs always had larger MAFs for which a tune was required. I'm guessing that is also true for all the later ones too but don't know for sure....

    Getting Intimate with the 4R70W

    I just found a video series that seems to deal with the ins and outs of the 4R70W, with mention of related models. Here is the first in the series:

    It turns out that changing the bushing can actually be done without removing the extension housing like a lot of people do (and which would have been a bit much for me). There is a tool that gets...

    Yup. Discovering excessive play in the past day put a big 'downer' on my aluminum driveshaft swap. Funny thing is that the vibration effect that had commenced awhile ago had not worsened in any...

    Nice score otherwise. I can only agree with jaywish at this point. The post-driving period is about an hour, and it will even raise itself during that period if the conditions are right. Sitting for...

    The color of the tranny fluid is important too. If it's not dark, that's a good sign.

    Please do let us know what's up with the rear end. I don't think I've heard of such a problem before.

    The latest post on CVN for your issue by theperfectdrugsk (about making sure it's actually shifting) got me thinking. There is a known issue about bolts within the steering column getting loose and...

    The MLPS was explained by 87GrandMarq in post #5. It's basically a safety feature to prevent the car from starting in gear, though I don't know the ins and outs of it, especially for panthers. I...

    I must have been thinking about power steering fluid being routed through one end of the rad. Even the tranny cooler on my older MGM is totally separate from the rad, so getting cross-contamination...

    I saw the following video on YouTube (from the CVN post below) about someone keeping the oil on the high side to get rid of an unwanted noise that persisted. Might be something to consider:

    I managed to find the following under a section relating to the compressor cycling after the key is off for a 2006:



    I guess that pretty much solves it. All the more reason to turn the switch...

    By "trim" do you mean that it will either vent to lower or activate the compressor to raise if required? If I come home, shut off the car, and throw something in the trunk for a trip several hours...

    You can get manuals cheap on some type of disk (CD or DVD). AFAIK, the original Ford disks have some kind of date-checking aspect that you can get around (such as by using them on a computer with the...

    Something that seems curious to me is that the engine apparently did not go into 'fail-safe cooling mode' in which four cylinders shut down to help with cooling (since they act as air pumps when no...

    I can't give a definitive answer, but my first impression is hell no, it's not normal. If you take something out of the trunk after taking the key out, there is apparently a short period in which the...

    Welcome! The NPI intake (up to 2000) has shorter runners, and there is a coolant tube behind the water pump that goes straight back under the runners as part of the heater core circuit. The PI has...

    Finally got this done at Zoro. $200 plus taxes. After all the lead-up, it went really quick. Before I went wandering around, the guy said it would take about half hour. So if it's a typical $100/hr...

    If you do things yourself, J-mod might be cheaper. J-mod requires valve body gaskets (a few bucks), specified drill bits if you don't have them, a new filter, and new fluid. You might want to replace...

    The underbody picture suggested nearly new condition compared to the rust I've always had to deal with. Have to wonder if they've done any spraying or whatnot.

    Something like a tensioner is going to be mileage-dependent rather than age-dependent. Someone with a 2011 might very well have driven twice as many miles as someone with a 2003. What's the mileage...
