93 Ford Explorer Stalls While Driving by [email protected]
I have a 1993 Ford Explorer with a 4.0 L that started stalling while driving about six month ago. It shuts off like someone turned the key. Originally you could push in the clutch and immediately restart it without a problem. The occurrence is very random and there is never anything common...

Does anyone have a link to any law or standard that allows or prohibits their use? Was having a discussion with a mechanic yesterday and the wrench was saying that it was easier to use a compression fitting than double flaring and he didn't have a problem using them; my position was that if I...

"Power" mirror question by Percival P. Cassidy[_2_]

would brake fail cause limp-home mode? by [email protected]
I was perusing a dashboard wiring diagram for my jalopy, and noticed that the brake fail lamp connects not only to the master cylinder switch and lamp check relay, but also to the ECU. Would this be so that the ECU would limit the speed of the car if brakes died?

Wheel bolt pattern... by Phil Kangas[_2_]
Is the lug bolt pattern for a '03 Buick Century the same as the lug bolt pattern for a '05 Buick LaCrosse? The '03 has 15" wheels, the '05 has 16" wheels. I don't have access to the LaCrosse yet to measure it. My gut says no they won't fit but I'm asking anyway. phil k.
