comment Does putting your car in park during extended stops during trips prevent transmission from overheating?
I'm assuming this is referring to an automatic transmission. It would probably be a good idea to know the year and make of the car. Some newer automatics are not really automatics at all with the old-style torque converters, etc. Some of the new automatics are really dual clutch standards where the computer will actually put them into neutral when you are stepping on the brake.

comment Really hard to find A/C leak on 2007 Mustang
No accidents. I've checked in the interior vents. But I sure hadn't thought of those caps. I'll replace them. When I looked inside of them, i did notice that the black plastic looked damaged a little but didn't think anything of it. Thanks. I too am an automotive design engineer. But my area is electronic controls (engine, body, etc.) - computer control, etc.

If it's the 4 cylinder, read this article, especially the paragraph starting with "Ford has been agonizing about the noise the EcoBoost Mustang makes." caranddriver.com/reviews/…

Since you said roush I'm assuming that you have the turbocharged 2,3L. Or is it the supercharged 5.0-liter V8? In the latter case I don't think it's really an Ecoboost. Which is it?
