    Eco Boost engine cover

    Akirby is right. The beauty cover was deleted. SSM 47714.

    New Here - 2013 SEL 4.2” radio upgrade

    You will lose all functionality of SYNC2 because it ALL will be replaced to add CarPlay. Several people have installed the Sync3 hardware and made it work with aftermarket programming. Then all normal Sync 3 stuff works, including CarPlay and Android Auto. Ford's Nav is definitely not the best on the market with either system. Aftermarket makers make replacement head units that will do it all, and may be cheaper than cobbling in Sync3. Honestly, you're best off to contact local car audio shops, or start looking at online places like Crutchfield. Personally, If I was doing it, I would just do a couple line level converters out of the existing system to run your amp(s) and call it a day.

    Cmax Oil Change

    I always set to plackard. I'm fairly sure it's 38 on mine too.

    Cmax Oil Change

    Typically, I 100% agree, and wouldn't recommend using the iOLM either, but it's a C-Max, so my thoughts differ on it than a standard non-hybrid. That being said, I have to admit that I don't use the iOLM On my wife's C-Max either. Her drive cycle puts her at about 7k miles as the desired interval, apparently, because I usually forget to reset it at 5000 when I do the service. This gets me a call, whenever, wherever it happens. As for rotations, I usually do 10k (every second oil change for me) on it anyway. The hard ass low rolling resistance tires wear like iron. It's just under 60k and we just replaced the set because she ruined one, had enough tread difference that I wasn't comfortable, and the replacement tires were very reasonable with all the benefits added in. Brake checks are important, but with regenerative I'm not sure we will EVER put brakes on this damn thing as long as the rotors don't rot apart. Again, vastly different from our non-hybrid vehicles. 5k miles on my beater Focus because I do roll quite a few miles (about 3 months). Everything else 3k or time based oil changes because I don't put enough miles on. Rotations every oil change for the Focus, every other for the 3k/time based vehicles.

    Rangers Without Parts To Ship?

    The "bluetooth receiver" is built into the APIM, and has nothing to do with keyless entry, either by fob or keypad. IF your center stack screen is working, you have an APIM installed. Something doesn't add up.

    Cmax Oil Change

    Just use the iOLM. When it says to change it, change it.

    AC Problem 08 Milan 4 cyl 83k

    There is no low side switch. There is a high side pressure sensor and an evap temp sensor. Your pressures look ok. Now you need a capable scan tool to compare your pressure to the pressure sensor and watch the temp sensor, and PCM commanded clutch control vs actual.

    2020 Transit info

    2011 Was the first year for the 3.7/3.5 GTDI in F-series AND 2011 was the first year for 3.7 in Mustang. They had external pumps and idlers where the pump used to be. So a 2009 article had to be transverse engine.

    2020 Transit info

    FWD were the only versions that got timing chain driven pumps. ALL RWD are belt driven externally. They are actually *almost* completely identical. The RWD version uses an idler in place of the actual pump and the coolant is routed through the front cover to the external pump. To answer the PF/DI question... emissions. Port does better under certain conditions than Direct and vise-versa. A combination of both for still other operating parameters. It has ZERO to do with keeping valves clean. IT's just a nice byproduct. As for the "ancient" switchgear, in those Econoswine pics, that is 110% driven by the upfitter demands. They don't want it to change. Since it is ONLY for upfitter type sales now, they run the show. Plus fleets can stock one HVAC system control instead of several. Sometimes simple is best. I am surprised by the single DIN radio.

    AC Problem 08 Milan 4 cyl 83k

    What are your running pressures when the clutch kicks out? Does that agree with the AC pressure sensor as read by the PCM? Does the AC evaporator temp sensor agree with the outlet temp at the vents?

    You need a set of pressure gauges and a scan tool to accurately diagnose this. Do you have all your cabin fan speeds?

    Ranger/ 5 Star tune

    Returning to stock wipes codes. IF you return to stock and bring it in for a MIL issue, it makes diagnosis difficult/impossible and I lose money on it for the NPF. For instance, lots of 6.0's used to be fine once the customer flashed back to stock, but would show what the problem was when tuned. Leave me your tuner and I will return it to stock if necessary. But the majority of owners will not disclose the tune because they think they can fool a "stupid tech".

    Ranger/ 5 Star tune

    They're mixing all those wishes, but "Truck" tunes are lower because they have to operate at higher loads over a longer period, in potentially more adverse conditions. The point is keeping combustion chambers cooler for NOx emissions AND longevity. Ford has ALWAYS erred on the side of caution, to hit their emissions targets, so they have always left a lot on the table. They used to not care so much about making advertised power until they stepped on their d**ks with the 99 Cobra.

    Ranger/ 5 Star tune

    FWIW, when you return it to stock, you delete the codes that may have been stored in memory in critical modules which makes diagnosis of your issues harder. Pisses techs off, especially when you lie and try to say its never been tuned. Trucks get "detuned" because they have different operating parameters than cars. Just dumping a "car" tune in it is a terrible idea.
