New video from (FTM) on the latest Taurus/Explorer Recall 19S17 & 20SO4 on Rear Toe link failure and what to expect!
I hope everyone is doing well. Z  :)



Most excellent post Z, everyone should give this a watch.
Thanks Brother! Definitely a must watch for any SHO/Explorer owner.
Here are a couple great informative threads. Z

Well the family took on the task if redoing our deck this past weekend.   We replaced the old pressure treated flooring with Trex.  Also colored stained the rails are well as replaced some bad supports.  First time using Trex, it actually went better than expected.  Also found out by accident that only the 12ft and 16ft boards have the slots cut for there hidden fasteners.  So here are some before and after pics.

FYI guys.  Stupid Fuel Pump Module bit me in the butt this weekend at Nationals.  It was already the updated part from Ford.  Had to have my dad come and tow the SHO home.  I ordered a Dorman module from Autozone to get the car moving.  It's around 50.00 for it.  Guess it's cheap insurance to have a spare in the car, so you don't get stranded like my wife and I did. 


Yeah it ruined what was a awesome weekend.

I got the OEM LPFP Relay for $70 from my local dealer. It is definitely worth while throwing one in the glove box and you dont need tools to at least plug it in and get home.

My 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS. I have an OEM Boost solenoid in the glove box. Same idea.

Time to go back to meth....you know you want to!  Iíve never used a pump to add fluid...hmm looks easier...or perhaps less drippy drippy.  Idk why but any VP 5 gal Pale starts a tiny drip from the spout that accumulates on the lip of the can then starts dripping...donít know why it does that.

That pump was a life saver... it made adding meth stupid clean... never had a drop leak... didnít have to pickup the pails...

That hand pump lasted 2 years I think before the meth ate the seals...

Maybe I will add meth later...
