I know it sucks Lisa, but no you cannot drive it in that state or your engine will overheat and probably seize up, costing thousands to repair or replace. Don't even drive it to the mechanic, get it towed. I know you say you can't get it to a mechanic, but I'm sure you can if you try. If it really is impossible somehow get someone who's handy with cars to ...

According to this Wikipedia article, there are many differences, but most of them are minor: Both use the same 4.6l SOHC V8 engine The Police Interceptor (PI) has: An external oil cooler A slightly different tune which allows the engine to idle a slight bit higher (40rpm) Has more aggressive transmission shift points Transmission is built for harder, more ...

Check fuse 21 in the under hood fuse box. If the fuse is OK at one of the o2 sensors check for power on the red/yellow wire. If you have no power at the o2 sensor I'm afraid your going to be looking for a short to ground. Which would involve tracing the wiring harness and visually inspecting for rub through or broken wiring.

The Red/Yellow wire is in the harness, not on the O2 sensor. It's can only be something that effects all 4 sensors. The ground is provided individually for each sensor by the PCM so it can't be on the ground side. Power is provided by Fuse 21, but that also powers the EVAP canister vent valve so if that fuse was blown it would also set an EVAP code, but ...

As GdD says, you can't drive it, at all, without coolant - it will overheat in a matter of minutes (if not less) and destroy your engine. If it is just sitting there, it does not need to have coolant in, it can sit empty. It's worth having a look underneath to see if you can see where the coolant is coming from - it may just be a loose or split hose that ...

First of all, the transmission fluid pump is part of the transmission. In most auto transmissions it sits right behind the torque converter (which is attached to the back of the engine). In order to change one out, you need to remove the transmission. It is not something which the average person (or mechanic) can or should do. The reason for this is because ...

The error code represents "High Pressure Common Rail Checksum Error" This could be the FCA (fuel control actuator) or a fuel pressure sensor on your main high pressure fuel rail or possibly both. The FCA meters fuel into the high pressure fuel rail. Symptoms are typically sputtering and power loss off idle or higher. The symptoms you are experiencing ...

After replacing the sensors- did you clear the codes and drive the car on the highway for a while so that the car computer can re-read the cars activity codes? After finding the codes and performing repair, you should clear codes before trying to get another code reading. Try clearing your codes first. No promises here- but this maybe just what you need.

Headlites, horn, turn signals, all the stuff alarm installers monkey with when they do an install. They install them behind the lower left side of the dash close to the headlight switch. Look for non-OEM wiring job and those crimp-on wire splices.

Here is your wiring diagram, not it is not a good idea to connect to the battery directly as it will drain the battery overnight. Check the fuse, it may be blown

Don't know of a way to get all the water out. Some engines have drain plugs in the back of the block. My Ford 4.6 does, but they are rusted and hard to get to. As an alternative, since it is nearly impossible to get all the water out, it is a good idea to use straight coolant and add 60 - 70% coolant to the system after the water flush. This will mix with ...

Did you check the oil level when cold and on a flat surface? Checking the oil when at normal operating temps will give you an inaccurate reading. The oil needs to be in the pan to check. If you checked while it was hot and then added too much, you most likely blew the engine.

I suspect it's not quite at the correct angle, so as you try to pull out the belt, you're not pulling it square, which is causing the pretensioner to latch and stop you pulling it at all - IIRC it doesn't need to be far off square for this to happen.

That code for Ford is not exactly the same as the generic equivalent: P0108 - Ford Type Powertrain - Fuel and Air Metering - ISO/SAE Controlled Description Barometric Sensor High Conditions Cause Engine running and the PCM detected a BARO sensor operating range of more than 5.0v
