Clear the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and reset the emission monitors information in the powertrain control module (PCM) was previously called PCM reset. All professional OBD scan tools and some consumer code readers support the clearing of continuous DTCs and resetting of emission monitors information in the PCM. Clearing the continuous ...

I have seen this in another Ford Expedition. Did the Check engine light come on, or has it been on for some time? Did your idle seem to be high occasionally in the recent past? With this limited information it sounds like a large vacuum leak that the computer has been able to compensate for until it got so bad that it could no longer keep up. Once the ...

My 2012 Ford Mondeo 1.6 sounded like a farm tractor when cold. 2 months later Ford said the replace the dual mass flywheel. 2 weeks later still the sound persists. Now at 29,000 miles the clutch and DMF had to be replace at a cost to me of £895.00 for non ford parts. Fords said noting they can do. Really fed up, won't drop persuing fords

If you do a hard reset of the PCM, you're computer will be back to the baseline trim the computer starts with from the factory prior to any self-adjustment. This will get you to your desired trim much quicker than trims which have been in place for a while. To do a "hard reset", pull the negative side battery terminal and leave it off for 30 minutes. This ...

As the name implies, long term fuel trims usually require the vehicle to be driven for some distance in order to adapt and re-learn changes. Depending on the vehicle, it may even require a couple of hundred miles. That said, the fuel trims can be reset in many vehicles via certain scan tools, so one may not have to drive to let the LTFT's settle to their ...

The "default" speakers in your car should be bi-wired ones. The 6-speaker layout in your car should have 2 speakers in the front, 2 tweeters in the front and 2 speakers in the back. The speakers in the back of your car should only have 2 strands each. The 4 strands of the connector on the front speakers are composed of two strands for LF - low frequency (the ...

For future reference, Autozone is actually great at this. They charge for membership to be able to access this information, but if you're able to aqquire a link to the specific page you need it will allow you to view all the information. BUT, if you navigate to a new page from there it will ask you to log in or sign up as a member. Technically I think ...

I would suggest that you check your motor mounts. This sounds like a motor mount issue.

It might be possible if there is method to do this via the obd2 port with a blue tooth adaptor. I suspect if there is that it will be a proprietary Ford method so you will have get access to the lower level functionality of what ever blue tooth obd2 adaptor you are using. I would seriously hope that audio blue tooth functions are isolated from the ...

I'd definitely suggest your alternator is bad. As was suggested in the comments, you can check the alternator itself at the battery. What you'd be looking for in this case is what the voltage is doing. Put the multimeter leads on the battery while it's running to check the voltage. If the alternator is bad, you'll see the voltage slowly tick down. If this ...

It's not difficult at all and can be done with basic tools. There will be one or two bolts on each end. Just take them off and replace with the new ones. It may help to take the tires off but may not be necessary. You will need to lift it up most likely depending on how much clearance is under the vehicle, it will make it easier if you lift it up.

The 93 Ford 3.8 engine utilizes Torque-to-Yield head bolts. If you didn't replace the head bolts and torque/turn them correctly, you've most likely caused the same problem over you were trying to fix. Plus, if you don't do the sequence properly, you'll have issues again. Here is the installation process for the heads: Clean the cylinder head bolt hole ...
