As Paul says, this is highly subjective - the only concrete answer is "pull it on enough to hold the car". The very fact you're asking this suggests to me that it almost certainly needs adjusting.... You should adjust the handbrake (or have it adjusted) so that it is fully engaged (i.e. you can't turn the rear wheels by hand, with them jacked up off the ...

I'm not going to say anything about the dealership you mention that a quick Google of review sites for them wouldn't reveal anyway. Yes, knocking is an early sign of the dual-mass clutch-flywheel assembly beginning to wear out. How long you will have between audible knocking and replacement is hard to predict. If you are unsure or unhappy about your main ...

The nature of your problem suggests a vacuum leak and the gas smell suggests an evaporative emissions control (EVAP) leak. Might be worth a check.

Plug an ODB2 reader and check for any fault codes. Might be related to the coils/plugs like Joel said, could also be a fuel trim issue caused by bad O2 sensors. An ODB2 reader would let you check all of this. Could just be the idle valve on the Throttle body. Do you still have the stock TB? Would be worth a try to swap them. If not, make sure it's clean.

Amelio: You can try changing the ignition coil and the spark plugs. I had a similar issue a few days ago, and we found out that the ignition coil had one bad terminal, and the spark plug located in that terminal, was a little wet... Give it a try! I'm a Ford Mustang 2004 v6 3.8L owner from El Salvador..

If I'm understanding the question correctly, I don't think you have any major problems. The AC is going to drip water which has condensed on the evaporator core during use. This is completely normal. Since you can only cause this to happen with the AC on, I'd suggest you have one or two issues. This is directly related to the serpentine belt. Either the ...

Edmunds is showing it as a constant ratio (14.7:1). Steering type as: Electric-assist, speed-proportional, rack-and-pinion power steering Variable ratio steering is not that common. If it had it, I'm sure it would appear all over the place.

In answer to the question of how to test your coolant mix, you would use an antifreeze and coolant tester In answer to why, you would want to ensure that your coolant mixture is correct as this provides protection against icing in the winter, enhances the effectiveness of the system in the summer and provides some corrosion inhibitors to prevent your ...

There are a couple of possibilities here aside from a bad relay (which appears to have been ruled out by your tests): the light switch has gone bad (stays permanently on) there is an electrical short somewhere in the controller circuit (which the light switch controls) that is bypassing the light switch and always completing the circuit

A lot of people put their transmission into Neutral while stopped at Traffic Lights. If you are one of those, read on! If you do this and let off of the clutch, the clutch engages with the engine and spins while the transmission sits still. The light turns green, and suddenly you scramble to get the vehicle in gear so you can go. What you do you? You ...

You can ground your test light at any place where there's a good ground. That might be a bare nut/both, off the leaf springs, on a rust spot on the bumper ... anywhere. There are two types of connectors I've seen for smaller trailers (4 way or 7 way). If you are using the 4 way, I've seen if you twist the two connectors together (work them back/forth ...
