How much oil does a Ford F-150 5.81 use?

Some hold 5 quarts and some hold 6 quarts. Change the oil & filter, pour in 5 quarts, start the engine and run for 3 minutes. Shut it off, wait 30 minutes, and check the level. Add oil to top off. You now know how much it holds.

Where can you find the keyless entry code for a 1996 Mercury Marquis if you don't have the manual?

The five digit code is printed in two other places on the car, at least this is how it is on mine. One copy is just under the trunk hinge on the drivers side of the car. The other is on the computer module behind the driver side door panel.

What can explain a Taurus's sudden and complete loss of brakes with braking power coming back a few minutes later?

Sounds like a leaky brake line.. allowing fluid to escape until it builds back up slowly. I'd check the reservoir to see if its full and drive around the block a few times then check it again. BE CAREFUL!! If that's not it, it could be a failing master cylinder.

Change tail light in 2005 ford freestyle?

After looking at a couple of diy sites, I found that one must:

1. Remove the two screws at the outside back of the tail light cover

2. loosen the tail light cover from the two clips at the front of the cover by gently prying it toward the rear. Fingernails worked for me. The bottom clip seemed easier. If it is too tight, try a screwdriver near the bottom, then near the top prying toward the rear of the car.

3. the top light is the backup lamp (white), and the bottom light is the brake/turn/rear light (red).

4. rotate the lamp 1/3 turn to remove and replace.

5. test.

6. replace the cover by aligning the screw holes then pushing the cover into the clips and replacing the screws.

What does the egr part do and why would it need replacement on a brand new Ford Freestyle?

EGR stands for Exaust Gas Recirculation. It does just that, circulates exaust gases into the intake system, for better fuel economy, efficiency, and reduced emmissions. Why it would need replaced? Becuase anything built by humans is subject to defect. Just because it's new doesn't mean it cant be bad. That's why there is a warranty. If there never any problems, Ford would never need to give you a warranty. The cars are put together with parts that come from suppliers all over the world. Just like you might go to the store and by something that is defective, Ford can also get a part right out of the box that is defective. They install it, not knowing it's defective, until you buy the car, bad part and all.

How much should it cost to repair the brakes on a 92 Honda Accord and with 150K miles is it worth the expense?

Depends on what is wrong. If it just needs new pads or shoes, it is definalty worth fixing if the car is in decent shape. Should be able to get it done for $100 to $150 provided you do not need new caliper or wheel cylinders.

How do you remove the front door window handle on a 1987 Calais with no apparent snap ring or pin?

The window handle does have a snap ring. It is shaped like an "ohm" symbol in electronics. You can easily remove it if you have a tool. The tool is flat and has a set of slots cut into it so that when you slide it behind the handle, it pops out the clip. If you lack the tool, you can work it out with a small screwdriver. You will have to work the clip from the handle side outward. Difficult to explain if you haven't seen one.

What is the towing capacity of a 1999 Chevy Tahoe?

2 or 4X4? Was it ordered with a towing package? 2 door or 4 door?

6000 =7500 pounds with the proper equipment and up to 10,000, limited to proper hitch of class 3 or 4, trans cooler and stiffer springs and shocks designed for towing. For light towing a class 3 hitch and trans cooler is a must to prevent damage. ( sprint helper are cheap and a good bet to help stability) Don't forget your brakes system always tow a trailer that has it's own brakes if it weighs more that half the weight of the tow veichle.

Where is 2005 ford freestyle computer module located?

After learning that our Ford dealer would charge us $40 to tell us the factory unlock code, I looked on the computer module. The code sticker is NOT on the front of the module. However, I was able to locate it on the back. Here's how:

Remove the three hex head screws under the front edge of the panel below the steering column. One of the screws is behind the hood release lever. The panel is also attached with clips at the top edge; just pop these out.

The computer module is the same black box that has the fuses -- it says "pull" on the front where you can take the lid off to change fuses. The factory keypad code sticker on our car is on the BACK of the box, near the left side. Tos see it, I had to partially remove the box.

It's not necessary to unplug any of the cables from the box, but you need to remove the three nuts that secure the box. They are 10mm nuts, & you'll need a deep socket. One nut is at the bottom, one at the top near the upper right corner, and one on the left near the top. That last one is the least accessible, but it's not too difficult.

Get the nuts off, pull the box forwards until you can reach behind it with a small hand mirror to read the code. It's a 5-digit number & should be obvious. The numbers will be backward (in the mirror) and possibly upside down, so note carefully. I had a hard time figuring out whether one digit was a 6 or a 9, so I just tried it both ways, also forwards and backwards, until one of the combinations worked.

Then just replace the nuts & the dash panel, & use the factory code to reprogram the keyless entry code as explained in the manual. Be sure to write down the factory code somewhere safe.

How do you push the piston back in on the rear caliber on a 2006 Ford Freestyle?

Answer

While maintaining pression on the piston, turn it slowly clock-wise or conter clock-wise and the piston will entering slowly

Regards


To make turning it easier, you can use a special tool that Autozone will loan you for free. You have to turn it the opposite way of a normal caliper piston - counter clockwise. Rear calipers on the Freestyle are notorious for freezing up though. You may have to replace it.

How much should it cost to replace the motor and transmission mounts for a 1999 Infinity GS20?

$800-$1000 parts and labor

I have a 2000 G20 and was needing motor mount and transmission mount

Luckily I found a complete set on line for $300.00 from O.C. Nissan in California.

I live in Texas. I went to a mechanic who works on my type of cars and he quoted me $ 300.00 to change the whole set.

So I spent around $ 600.00 and change.

If you go to the dealer you will spend lots of money for sure.

Shop around online and you can find good deals on many parts and have a mechanic put them on for you. You can save money like that. I did!

Good luck.

How much does it cost to repair brake pads?

Not much if you know what you are doing. If you don't know what you are doing, take it to Pep Boys or something and you can usually get it done for forty or fifty dollars

AnswerFront brake pads replacement cost usually cost between $20 and $35, depending on quality and the vehicle. Rotors are usually under $100.00 ea, again depending on the vehicle, but you may not need them. They're much less for passanger cars and more for trucks. Calipers only need to be replaced if they're leaking or sticking. If you can do the job yourself, you can save a lot of money. If you take it to a mechanic, the bid won't include the rotors, but when you get the bill you'll pay for them anyway. Most shops won't turn the rotors and will install new ones, but if they aren't damaged you can often re-use rotors by having them resurfaced at a cost of $5.00 to $15 ea, depending on where it's done.

How do you compress the rear brake calipers on a 2006 ford freestyle?

The rear brake calipers on the Freestyle contain an internal spiral mechanical advance, part of the emergency brake system. The pistons cannot be compressed in the usual way using a C-clamp or piston compression tool. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FORCE THEM! You may damage the internal parts. The pistons must be rotated to retract the spiral mechanism. The driver's side is rotated clockwise and the passenger side is rotated counterclockwise. Look for the arrow near the piston bore on the caliper forging. Rotation is best accomplished with a spanner wrench tool available at good auto parts stores. It is a 3/8" square drive (standard socket ratchet) cube, Lisle Tool Corp. part #28600. Open the bleed port before turning the piston to relieve hydraulic pressure. A length of Ø1/4" ID clear tubing on the bleed barb is useful for directing the fluid into a receptacle. After the piston is fully retracted, make sure the piston spanner grooves are vertically aligned, as the top groove is clearance for a small pin on the brake pad plate. NOTE: If your pads are extremely worn, the spriral may become disengaged internally. In this case, you must apply significant inward force AS YOU TURN THE PISTON to make it re-engage. This is virtually impossible to do without removing the caliper from the car and mounting it in a vise. You will have to bleed the brake lines after reassembly, but it is still less work than fighting a flopping caliper still tethered to the car.
