I have a 2008 Mariner and there is an input for an MP player on the dash (lower right of center) to connect an MP3 player. maybe they use the same radio on the Escape ???

Can somebody tell me why Ford didn't include a simple
water temp indicator or oil pressure indicator on a $ 30K automobile?

I had the same complaint when I first got my FEH. I believe we don't have a water temp gauge because they did not want to re-design the instrument cluster so they replaced the temp guage with the charge/assist gauge.(lazy) I believe we don't have an oil pressure gauge because it would be distracting to see it go up and down and up and down every time the ICE went off and on.
I eventually got used to not having them. Then I bought a "ScanGauge II" it was well worth the $170....you can program in any gauge you want because it reaches all the sensors in the FEH.

Is the "ScanGuage" a PC application? or did you do something to reprogram the instrument cluster? I'm in the hunt for either a MMH or FEH, and took a dealer drive the other day. Agree with previous that Ford didn't spend a lot of money there, but frankly the rest of the vehicle was pretty spiffy. Still really pricey for the moderate increase in economy.

New guy here. I have a 2006 Tribute 2wd 4cyl Automatic. I was looking at the after market performance/mileage booster chips and the air intake vortex products and wanted to know if anyone has tried and had any luck with them increasing MPG's.
Thanks in advance!!!
#224 of 235 Crossbar adjustments??
Sep 09, 2011 (1:54 pm)
I've been trying to look everywhere for this and cannot figure it out and it's not in the FEH manuals either.
I have an 08 AWD/Limited FEH and bought it with the 2 crossbars on top ack right next to each other so I obviously have to move them/spread them out to put my surfboard rack on it...I cannot for the life of me figure out how to adjust these though, as what I THOUGHT would be the little rubber bolts you twist/unscrew to loosen the crossbars on the rack to adjust, they don't move - at all! and since they are rubber they begin to give way when I try and force it with a tool or something so i don't want to break anything.
Any ideas? Help would be seriously appreciated, thank you!!

Strange, mine just unscrewed. I took them off when I got the car, maybe they get harder to remove as time goes by. I keep mine behind the rear seat; I just checked them and it does screw in and out.
I also have the 2008 AWD with the premium package (I did not realize they had the "limited" package in 2008).
