    Mks ptu service.

    I only put on 5000 miles a year, so I change it every 15,000 miles. When the car is out of its extended Ford warrantee, I'll probably do it every 10,000 miles. At this point, if it blows, I'm still under warranty so every 15,000 miles is what I decided to do. I have the dealer do it. If I recall correctly, it's about 100 bucks or so. I did have to convince them over time to do it........ as they gave me the standard "FORD says it's lifetime fluid".

    It is the same as an SHO. You suck the old lubricant out of the fill plug. The fill plug can be seen from under the car. I am sure there are pictures of it floating around somewhere in the forums.

    Hit the BIG 6'OH

    Well, my old girl hit 60k miles today. Still runs like a top. She could use a good detail though. B.

    Hit the BIG 6'OH

    I agree with SHOdded…….. still a long ways yet to go! Congratz on the milestone! Now be sure to treat her accordingly. Good bath/detail. Change of fluids, etc. and she'll continue running like a top!

    Toyo Proxes 4 plus

    Okay, I got the Michelin Pilot Super Sport about a month ago. Very smooth riding. They grip the pavement like Velcro. Now I have to wait for winter to see how they do there. B.

    Same as with any other car really, service records, particularly fluid changes - oil, trans, ptu/rdu, coolant, etc. Then turbo-related stuff - is there pooling oil anywhere in the piping, are pipes cracked at the clamp areas, etc. Pull the pipes off the turbos to inspect the turbos closely for pooling oil, damage to the impellers, etc. Check struts and shocks for leaking fluid, tie rod ends, control arms and hubs for wear. If tires are worn, they will need to be replaced soon. Any codes stored in the PCM. If a P1000 is present, you should check again once the P1000 resolves. Hard to tell if the car is tuned or stock/ever been tuned. Check battery for CCAs. Suggest getting an AGM battery with high CCAs, toughmax 850 for example. Sunroof drains should flow freely. Sunshade should work properly. Do not buy without having a warranty in hand, whether it is CPO, powertrain, etc. Electronics are expensive, and won't be covered by powertrain, so something to keep in mind.

    I changed my annually and many others do the same. It is not difficult to suck the old fluid out and put new in if you are a do-it-yourselfer.....although it can be messy. If you don't want to do it, there are places that will. You might want to check around. It is good maintenance.

    SHO water pumps

    Hi SHOdded! Just to be on the safe side I had the water pump and all the associated parts for the cams replaced as well as the water pump by my regular mechanic. He also replaced the engine coolant and oil and filter with new also. Mine takes a one or two year specific ($$$) green coolant that he got directly from the local Ford dealer. The engine has 106,000 miles on it and I'm on an oil change plan so the oil gets changed every 3 months with a synthetic blend oil regardless of the mileage. We bought the car new with 35 miles on it and it's been pretty darn reliable for us. I know what you are talking about with regard to the specific cam chains, gears, sprockets, VVT solenoids, guides, etc. as Rock auto sent me the wrong set up and then would not take them back because by the time that my mech got the timing cover off the block and found out that I had the wrong parts over 100 days had elapsed, and they said "Sorry Charlie" 30 days for a return and not one second more even if we screw up. I'm just plain out $350.00 but at least I'm not worried that I'll be along the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for your two cents worth. Hopefully, somebody will read this thread and see that there is more than one set of timing chains and not have the trouble that I went through. C-YA ! AV8R

    X4 vs livewire vs LMS

    Do you want an excellent plug and play tune that you can enjoy immediately without being involved in the tuning process? Or would you prefer to start out with a mild base tune, log the results, send the results to a tuner, receive a tweaked tune, and continue with the logging, sending results, getting tweaks until the tune is optimized? If you decide to go with the logging/tweaking process, do you want to learn what your car is doing, what tweaks the tuner is making and actually have a dialog with the tuner or do you just want to trust what they are doing and have no interaction with the person actually doing the tweaking? The end results are about the same whichever way you go. How you get there is the huge variable.

    How to replace rear window sunshade motor

    I found that my 2013 SHO sunshade was bad. It bounced up and down all the time while I backed up. Scared the crap out of a lot of people. They thought we had someone trapped in the trunk. I order a new motor from Ford part #BG1Z 15790 A. When I went to Ford, I asked them for a wiring diagram of the sunshade module and motor. I figured I could cut the wire that makes it go down every time you back up. I believe this puts stress on the gears, every time reverse is activated. It turned out my motor assembly had a missing tooth on a internal brass gear. I have read some people rotate the broken gear 180 degrees and it works. I followed shobiz’s excellent directions above, to get at the speaker deck. After reviewing the wiring diagram and confirming with a Fluke meter, I cut the Blue-White wire going to the sun shade module. I added a little heat shrink on both sides of the wire, to keep It from shorting. It now works great. The button on the dash is now the only thing that controls the movement of the sunshade. This will also leave the shade up all the time if you choose. Even if you don't change the motor, and just cut the wire, it won't bounce unless you activate it with the button. The wire and module are located in the center of the back speaker deck. Hope this helps. Jon

    2011 MKS Belly Pan/Skid Plate

    UH....if yours was different, it was not the original. The one Bpd posted is the one that belongs on the car. I had an MKS and am 100% familiar with the aeroshield.
