I own one as well. Both of my lights have been on for over 4 years and my wilfe got suckered three times into repairing the ABS and brakes when there was no repair to be performed. I put my foot down and informed all mechanics and technicians to not address those lights since I have a trail of repair evidence with no mechanical problems noted. Next step is to pull the fuse!

I own a 91 XLT 4.0L and have been driving it with the lights on for about 2.5 years with no problems. Would like to either fix and shut off the lights, or disconnect. Any suggestions?

I have a ripped CV boot on the front driver's side. Can anyone who has done this tell me how difficult this is or what is involved? Can't find anything in Chiltons on it.

I'm leaking transmission fluid from my shifter seal (according to oil change guys). Can anyone tell me how difficult this is to replace and what's involved? I can't find any reference to this in Chiltons.
#368 of 527 Transmission fluid leak
Sep 14, 2005 (12:58 pm)
Okay, I have read every message regarding tranny fluid leaks and seem to have a unique one. While driving in the city, the van is fine. However, when I go on longer trips, over 20 miles or so, I get transmission fluid on my rear window and have to add fluid. Anyone have any idea on this one? It's a '93 extended, 2wd w/ 3.0lt engine. As I said, normal driving in the city is fine, it only leaks when I go on long trips. I assume it has something to do with it heating up since it doesn't get too hot in the city.
I'd appreciate any help on this.

I suggest you check and replace the PCV and the modulator. Also inspect the tranmission cooler to see any leak or clogged line. If changing the modulator fix the problem then change tranny fluid and it's recommend to have an aux. tranny cooler, the biggest the car can take.

#371 of 527 98 Aerostar Heat problems
Oct 05, 2005 (9:16 am)
I have a 1989 Ford Aerostar. The vehicle seems to heat up fine but I am not getting hot air from the heater when I turn it on to heat up the cab. The temperature shows just above cold. Never gets close to the middle (warm) area on the dash. I have run this thing for 500 miles with it not warming the heater up good enough to take off the chill. I have discussed this with many people and they tell me to get a 140 to 160 degree thermostat and put it in. I beleave the orriginal is a 195 degree. I am just worried that if I put in a different thermostat that I may have overheating issues. Please help!!

Sounds like the heater core may be partially clogged. I had a similar issue on my '93. Solved it by flushing the cooling system using Prestone SuperFlush. Had good heat after flushing.
