    I would think just wiping the inside of the TB and plate with a rag to the extent that you can would be fine. If there's a little hole in the plate, make sure the gunk didn't get pushed into it....

    Welcome! With respect to the headlights, you want a headlight relay harness. Essentially, you use the existing headlight wires to trigger relays that then pass current directly from the battery to...

    The wear stuff is links and bushings, and you would generally want new. The bushing brackets and fasteners for the rear bar are probably salvage items. I've seen front bushings sold with their own...

    If you're able to jack the car up and don't mind crawling under it, the sway bars are probably among the easiest things you can do. The most affordable approach would be to find bars and associated...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...
