  • Would a 2013 ford fusion be good to take up PA mountains?

    I have a 4 cyl 2013 ford fusion that I just bought, and we take a trip once a year to PA and my mother would like to take my car this time around. I've only ever taken 6-8 cyls through there and am worried I might not be able to make it up the mountains with 4 people and luggage to boot.

I’m just curious what it is because the side windows didnt have a frame/separater in the middle of them like most cars. Both the side windows were down and there was just a huge opening like it was one big window. And if the windows were rolled up they would touch eachother.

  • 1990 ford ranger- fuel pump issues?

    Best answer: Replace the fuel filter. Get a fuel pressure gauge and check fuel pressure while cranking (key on Start). No pressure, get a test light and check for power and ground at the fuel pump connector while cranking (key on Start) Power and ground is good, the fuel pump is bad. No power, check for a bad fuse, bad... show more
    Best answer: Replace the fuel filter. Get a fuel pressure gauge and check fuel pressure while cranking (key on Start). No pressure, get a test light and check for power and ground at the fuel pump connector while cranking (key on Start) Power and ground is good, the fuel pump is bad. No power, check for a bad fuse, bad wires, relay or ignition switch (and a inertial switch if there is one). No ground, check for bad wire or bad ground connection.

    If you have to replace the pump, do not go the cheap route. Buy a factory or OEM fuel pump.

  • What happens when you try to switch gears with Anti-lock braking system on?

    Best answer: Is your car a manual transmission and did you get a grinding noise when trying to put it into a gear upon heavy braking? If so, the reason is likely just because one (or both) of the drive wheels was probably nearly stopped when you tried to engage the gear.

    I won't go into great detail about the mechanical reasoning for what happened, but you can think about it this way - there are 2 "speeds" a transmission always sees - the speed the engine is turning one shaft of the transmission (the input speed) and the speed the drive wheels are going (the output speed). In your case, the output speed of the transmission was probably near or at 0 rpm since the drive wheel(s) were at nearly locked up (which is why the ABS was probably on) but the speed of the transmission input side (the side of the transmission powered by the engine) was much higher than that because the engine obviously wasn't near a stop like the drive wheels were when you tried to engage the gear. Result - difficulty engaging the gear due to the massive difference in input vs. output speeds and likely a horrid grinding noise to go with it.

    You most likely didn't do any lasting damage if that just happened once, so I wouldn't worry about it. If you do that regularly though (like at a racetrack setting where you're regularly hammering on the brakes prior to entering corners and you try to engage gears repeatedly during that sort of braking) then eventually you might do some damage to the transmission and/or clutch, so don't make a habit of doing it. Good luck.
