There are 2 heater control vavles in the system - driver and pass. I would suggest a look at pr replacement of the passenger HCV may lead to a resolution. It may be sticky. Good luck.

Same problem... Tire blow out on freeway. AAA not able to change tire
and the factory trunk tool not work.. Firestone quoted a price of 5 bucks each
or 100 for all tires... Online parts places sell 20 for 90 bucks plus 8 for
shipping.. Firestone said they were 19mm lug nuts but used a 20 mm
#117 of 123 Jack up & replace rear under-bumper skirt
Sep 20, 2009 (10:54 am)
Hi I'm Patrick,
I want to jack up my Lincoln LS V8, so I can change the skirt that attaches to the frame & under the rear bumper.
My wife was in a spinout on the freeway near Dallas. The car in the far right lane moved to the center of three lanes while she was moving from the left lane to the same center lane. She never saw the slower car moving to the center while she checked her blind spot. She turned her head to the front just in time to see she was going to hit the back of the other car. She swerved hard left to avoid the much slower car and succeeded in doing so, but she over-corrected and turned the wheel hard right and created the spin that took her across three lanes and into the grassy swale between the feeder road and the main lanes. She should have flipped her car since she was moving at better than 65 mph. The car, even though she over-corrected the second time, probably saved her from flipping several times. Glad she wasn't driving the Expedition. I think the car saved her life.
Long story short-er? The dealer that made all her repairs never noticed the grass hanging under her rear bumper and the subsequent ripped straps that hold this "skirt" to the frame. I told them that 3 weeks was long enough for them to notice this and fix it, "Ship the thing to me and I'll put the damn thing on." They had over 3 weeks and made several thousand dollars repairing/rebuilding the front of the car... radiator...fog lamps, etc.
I do all my car work alone, so jack stands in the right places will help a lot...
Thanks for your time,
Frustrated but safe. PTRodriguez

I've replaced my gaskets and plugs as well, but have one long bolt left over and for the life of me I cant figure out where it goes. Any ideas?

Try the new E3 Spark plugs. They fire when normal plugs just wont. They come with a preset gap..(Dont change). You can get them at any recognized auto parts dealers.

I sold my 2000 LS to a co-worker about 6 months ago. This morning, mentioned that the moonroof sometimes fails to close. It always opens fine but whether in tilt or full open position, it doesn't always close unless he "helps" it by pulling it with his hand.
I tried it myself and it worked perfectly and sounded normal whether opening or closing. Apparently the problem comes and goes. When it works, it works fine. When it doesn't, it is though the battery is dead - according to the owner. He doesn't expect me to take any responsibility for this but he simply asked for my opinion and advice. Has anyone else had this issue? Any lubrication or maintenance needed on the track or mechanisms?
