    If the engine doesn't get hot enough to actually expand the coolant it won't push any out, and it won't need to pull any back either.


    Not a good fix, but if you really get in a bind and have to...

    auto dim mirror is easy. Power, ground, connection to the reverse light circuit so it un-dims when backing up. If you add the compass, I assume it may also have a connection to the dash light...

    Its got an air temp sensor but not sure if its part of the MAF or in the air cleaner lid. At some point it moved from the lid to being part of the MAF but I don't know when exactly. Pretty easy to...

    I've found that old tires get hard and the wet traction gets bad, followed by the dry traction. They also tend to get loud. Never owned winter tires, it just doesn't snow enough here to justify the...

    I've never had anything that would lift an engine high enough to do it with the trans. Keep in mind a Lincoln is like a foot longer in front than a Vic too so its more of a pain in the ass. ...

    The problem with trying to thread bolts in there is usually the holes are so packed with carbon you can't actually use the threads. The more sensible way is to take that crossover pipe, cut the ends...

    I've also left the power steering and AC in the car to not have to deal with it. Easy opportunity to dump the PS pump out for a partial fluid change though.

    honestly I don't feel that having the engine out makes the motor mount job all that much easier. If you were doing lower control arm bushings, then yes. Access to the bolts is easy at that point. ...

    stock trans shifts about 4500 but you can manually hold first gear if you want to. No reason to, it doesn't make any power up that high.

    consider a 2.26 with a 3 speed is pretty much the same as a 2.73 with an AOD in terms of RPM. You get much better acceleration from the 2.73 though, so in-town driving is probably more efficient...
