  1. Fuzzy may not be able to say anything since Fuzzy works for Ford.
  2. I'm usually not a fan of black cars. But this is neat. A nice flat black. Spring can't come soon enough.
  3. So how long before someone takes the Bronco R, and photoshops this light into that pic?
  4. Most of the city police forces around here are using Ford Explorers.

    Unknown RAM/Jeep Mule Spotted

    I wish they would've taken some shots of the front end.

    news coming....

    There was a guy that worked for a Circuit City nearby. He had a 2001 or 2002 V6 Mustang. He spent the money to make it look like a Cobra. I was laughing as the transition happened because it wasn't done all at once. I think the front bumper was first. Then the badging. It did look somewhat decent when it was done. But I've always wondered, why would someone go through the trouble?

    news coming....

    My boss bought a Volt about a year ago. I think he said he gets 300 miles per charge. It takes 12 hours to get to a full charge. It costs .18 cents an hour to charge. So, if you do 12 hour charges daily you're spending $2.18 a day to charge. Thats @ $64 a month.
  8. Those two gauges on the door, are they going to be in the final vehicle? Or are they there for testing purposes?

    Have a AC issue

    So what can happen if the drier isn't replaced? Will more problems present themselves?

    Have a AC issue

    Brought the Escape back to the mechanic yesterday. Customer Complaint: Inspect customer states, A/C is ions when driving in warm conditions. A/C will work on cool nights. A/C also seems to work often while parked at idle and seems to stop working when driving. Description of repairs or services performed: **Inspected the customers complaint. Road tested the vehicle but could not verify. **Scanned te he HAVC module for codes. No code are stored at this time. Engine temperature is running in the normal range. Cooling fans are running full time. Checked Identyfix. Identyfix shows a high failure rate of A/C Transducer/Pressure switch. Tested A/C Transducer/Pressure switch. Switch tested out of range. Switch does have a 5 volt reference and a good ground. We also found a high failure rate of the expansion valve. Based on the above inspections we performed the following: **Replaced the A/C Transducer/Pressure switch. Replaced Expansion Valve With the system components connected we evacuated the system and verified the system held vacuum for 15 minutes. Added refrigerant oil to the system Re Charged the system with a full charge of refrigerant Re checked the system operation Leak checked the system with a full charge and there are no other leaks apparent at this time (see air condition advisory) **Performed a final round road test to verify the original complaints are no longer apparent and all repairs are satisfactory. As of now, everything seems to be blowing cool. Fingers are crossed this continues.

    2021MY Escape Facelift

    I love my 2012 Escape, because it looks like a mini mashed up version of an Explorer and Expediton. I don't understand why Ford can't continue to take the styling cues of the Explorer and Expedition and continue to make a mini mashed up version into the Escape.

    Have a AC issue

    I have searched and have come across a few things, one of them is bleeding the hi-pressure side with an Allen wrench. It still boggles my mind everything was fine up until the blower motor stopped worked. Had the blower motor fixed and now theres little to no A/C. I'll call the shop on Monday and suggest to them about bleeding the hi-pressure side and see what they say.

    Does it make sense that the higher the outside temp is, the less likely the A/C is to work.

    Have a AC issue

    Frustrations mounting quickly. Little to no cold air on Wednesday. I did get a few seconds of cold air, but as soon as I could feel it, it was gone. Now I don't know if I can believe the thermometer I was using. There were points that it read the air output temperature was 100 degrees. Yet it didn't feel like 100. Maybe the cabin temperature was above 100 degree so the air coming out of the vents felt cooler than it was? The outside temp was anywhere from 84 to 89 degrees.

    Have a AC issue

    Well, received the Escape back and I'm still scratching my head. The shop inspected my complaint but could not verify at that time. Checked system pressures. Pressures checked normal. Ran vehicle in shop with A/C on. A/C system blowing 40 degrees and operating normally at this time. Checked for TSB'S #14-0157* Could possibly be related but we must have vehicle in a no a/c operation condition. Customer is to monitor for the above complaint. Should the condition continue, reoccur or worsen, further diagnostics are recommended. Charges will apply. *Link to description of TSB's #14=-0157 https://ford.oemdtc.com/986/warm-ac-output-lack-of-blower-motor-operation-in-one-or-more-speed-settings-2008-2012-ford-escape-2008-2011-mercury-mariner Above is the shops diagnosis. When I picked the vehicle up and started it, there was cool air coming from the vents. As I drove down the street, the cool air stopped. So I headed back to the shop. As I approached the shop I called ahead to let them know what was going on. I was trying to get the service advisor to come outside, but was put on hold. Then then the air started to blow cold again while it sat idling. I drove off. As I drove off the vehicle started to blow warmer air from the vents. The advisor stated to me that he had no problem with trying to further diagnose what was going on, but charges will apply. He told me to monitor the situation and call them on Monday. He went on to say it would be better if the a/c completely failed. Very frustrated I needed food. I decided to drive a few miles away from home. As I got closer to the restaurant, the cold air started to blow again. So I decided to take the longer route to the restaurant. Cold air continued to blow. Finished eating, started to drive home, get cold air again. Took the extra long route home, all with cold, crisp air. Not sure whats going on and why, but we'll see what happens in the morning when I go out. Will I get cold air within a few minutes? Will it stay cold or be intermittent? Stay tuned as the drama continues to unfold.
