    Hey all, I was pulling up to the house the other day, just coasting it in, 2nd gear, clutch engaged, no throttle, when all of a sudden I hear a ticking/popping/rattling noise. Now it wont idle without a little throttle, feels like its missing a cylinder, and I'm getting a very consistent "pop...

    Hello, I have a 1995 V6. The coolant in my car slowly disappears. It is not leaking on the pavement, its not in the oil, and it does not look like its coming out of the exhaust but I suspect it is. I did a pressure test (used a vacuum and gauge on the radiator) and the cooling system held...

    I have a 98 GT. When I got it the motor was shot so I swapped it with a 98 Expedition 4.6L, after swapping many items from the Mustang motor. I put the PI intake and used the gaskets that I had for the PI intake but I think this is where my issues start. I got it running and now it is leaking...
