  1. I've heard a tech say that if you follow the replacement procedure correctly the pans don't leak. But there are a lot of techs out there that don't do it correctly so they continue to leak.

    Weird Noise When Opening Doors

    sounds like it could be the fuel pump, the AWD disconnect or both. In my F150 it’s definitely the fuel pump since it’s RWD and it only happens when you open the driver door.

    Hello from the North Georgia mountains

    Try the Mandarin Chicken but substitute pineapple for broccoli (unless you like broccoli - can't stand it). My expert advice is free and worth every penny!

    Cool! We're between Canton and Waleska. We go to Jasper for Chinese food (Peking Garden).

    I meant that other vehicles don’t necessarily prime the pump before you start it so you wouldn’t have heard it without the engine running.

    Ecoboost engines require higher fuel pressure because of direct injection. Plus you don’t normally hear the fuel pump while the engine is off.

    Its the fuel pump priming. Most newer Ford’s do it now including my F150.

    I do too but only in a RWD platform where they don’t have to limit torque.

    The details are still a bit murky but that's not what I'm hearing from insiders.

    Engine Meltdown 2011 Limited

    For #1 I would go with a good used engine. That will net you the most cash. Used in good condition is around $10K minus the used engine cost. Scrap would probably be $1K-$2K at most.

    Overheating. Neither Fan running

    And if that's a Dorman part throw it away or return it and get a Motorcraft replacement unit. Many a Dorman has been DOA.

    That's because the fan and module come together and should be replaced together.
  14. Get adapters (crutchfield has them). Connect the crossover to the factory wiring and the components to the crossover.
  15. It's not a recall so it's not going to be free.
