I'm glad I'm not alone. My 1998 just started shifting hard, but only after it has warmed up a while. I just took it to a transmission guy. He said not to look at the transmission as the problem quite yet. On my car, he said the problem might be related to my bank 1 emissions, plugged fuel injectors and/or clogged upstream catalytic converters. He lost me, but indicated that the fluid pressures within the transmission go into a type of "safety mode", as a result of the "codes" that I'm having and that causes the harder shifting. He told me to have the back pressure checked on my converters and go from there. All I'm out is $65.00 for the diagnostics. To me that makes more sense than a $2200 transmission, although converters could be a similar amount if you replaced all 3.
Starting Point!! Hopefully stopping point as well.j
You can only stay in the big rectangle around the basket for three seconds. However, every time you hit the rim, the three seconds restart, or every time you step in or out. If only one foot is in the box, it still counts as "in the box." If the three seconds run out, the ball is turned over to the other team.
Should take only a few seconds to reset the computer in theory. I have found this to be the case in my '99 Mystique & Contours. For my cars, I only remove fuses 4 & 11 from the box under the hood next to the battery. This resets the comuter without losing the station programming in my radio. Fuse numbers may be different in a '96. Check the FAQs at contour.org, or fordcontour.org to confirm which fuses for your car.
It really depends on the current distance of Mercury from The Sun. The orbit of Mercury (and of all the planets) is not perfectly circular. There are times Mercury is closer to The Sun than other times. When it's at its closest, or perihelion, Mercury is a little over 28.5 million miles from The Sun, and light takes just over 2 minutes and 33 seconds to travel from The Sun to Mercury. When Mercury is at is farthest distance, or aphelion, it is almost 43.4 million miles from the Sun, and light takes just over 3 minutes and 53 seconds to travel from The Sun to Mercury. So, based on the dates that Mercury is at aphelion and perihelion, your answer is: On August 21st, 2009, light takes 3 minutes and 53 seconds to travel from The Sun to Mercury On October 4th, 2009, light takes 2 minutes and 33 seconds to travel from The Sun to Mercury.
You have to go to the start menu. there will be a icon of Shut Down. besides it, there will be a drop down box where you can select restart. You can also hit the Alt+F4 and select restart from the drop down box from the program which appears on screen. If your laptop hung up, you might hae to force close it by pressing the power key for about 5-10 seconds and then restart it.
