    As luck would have it, I happened to have that exact hose sitting in the trunk waiting to be installed. So I went out to the garage and took it out to compare with the current, probably original...

    I removed mine by hand with an L-shaped torx wrench, but it was tough going even on a rust-free car. As you've found, the angle and the geometry of the floor there doesn't make it very easy. But the...

    Well that sucks. I'll have to verify with the defrost, but between the freeze plugs and the heater core are two major jobs I would've preferred to not have to do. I assume the only way to keep it...

    My car had a decent sized front bar and nothing in the rear. Taking curves on the highway to Post gave enough body roll that I felt the need to slow up a bit. After installing the smaller rear sway...

    If replacing the pump might be necessary, I guess I'd rather just skip to that step than screw around with resealing the one I've got. It looks like all the major auto parts stores sell reman'd pumps...

    I picked up a plain, 16 lbs Murray cap from O'Reilly. Seems the only Motorcraft replacement these days is plastic, and it wasn't in stock anyway. The new Murray cap appears to seal well, though I...

    The hose ought to be the right size as the whole assembly came off a '90 Town Car. I think I found the clamp on some other part in the engine bay and felt like it would fit over the overflow hose....

    I wouldn't call it syrupy pancakes, but a very faint, sweet smell. Which could be the start of the heater core leaking. That would certainly make more sense than the scent of coolant at the radiator...

    My wife and I were out cruising on Sunday when we both smelled what might've been coolant from the air vents. I took a look under the hood but couldn't see any obvious puddles. The freeze plugs, I'm...

    So it sounds like if the car is fully unloaded, the coil springs alone should be able to maintain the stock ride height. Air shocks could probably cover up the difference, but that wouldn't change...

    I didn't realize you could get a Mark without rear speakers. Would've thought anything less than fully-optioned would run counter to the intended image for that model,...

    The Aero TCs have aged quite well, I think. '96-'97 especially struck a great balance between streamlined and stately.

    My biggest gripe is with the interiors. The later Aero interiors really went...

    Where would the mirror even pull the temperature from? I assume on newer cars there's an additional wire that sends that data which a Box won't have.

    I believe the filter can cause 3-4 shift problems because one of the bolts runs next to a valve or something that handles that shift. But I doubt the filter is the culprit here since this issue has...

    I can buy that, but in this case what must've happened was no leak at all, or at least not nearly as much as I thought. I think some coolant must've passed into the overflow tank and not returned...

    Cold Start Slip

    I know I had mentioned this issue before in my TC's main thread, but I thought it might be worth splitting into its own discussion.

    Back in May I ran into a transmission issue where the car...
