I didn't read your whole blurb of [censored] but my scanner does abs trans and engine codes and live data. The reason I haven't posted any codes is because there aren't any.
Ahhh, so you just don't know how to use it. Got it.
The defrost was turned off after it warmed up and fans kicked back on as needed.
Sure, I believe you
Also the chevy has needed a 24 yr old vehicle that's needed a fuel pump and a coil and had a lazy o2 sensor. If you are going to compare a 24 yr old work truck to a 5 yr old focus that has been babied your a fool wouldn't you agree?
The Chevy has needed two fuel pumps that you couldn't diagnose correctly apparently (why it had to go to the shop and why you were asking for advice here.... like you do for every vehicle) So if anybody is a fool sir, I think a mirror might be in order. Also it is "you're", as in an abbreviation of "you are". Unless you think I own a fool? However I do believe that kind of nonsense has been illegal in North America for quite some time now
Her focus has needed more stupid things fixed than my saturn or the truck combined.
I find that surprising given the number of threads you've posted on here about your vehicles. Though I'd find it less so if you are the one doing the troubleshooting
The truck is 20 yrs older has a lot more miles and has actually done work.
So you now know the entire history of the truck you picked up something like a month ago? Do you own a time machine? If so, can I borrow it?
The saturn also older more miles and the slight miss was fixed today. Guess what it was when. The previous owners had the icm replaced the tech didn't clean the grounds. My instructor caught it not me so I won't take credit for it but it's fixed cost me zero dollars and 10 minutes labor.
Don't worry, when it starts burning oil I'm sure the miss will come back
And to be honest and I'm not being based my saturn is quieter than the focus and smoother.
In your unbiased opinion of course
You get alot of engine vibrations through the cabin on that car. And tire and wind noise is ridiculous. As far as interior quality I'll give the focus a slight edge maybe....it squeaks at rattles quite a bit though. Difference is 18,000 car vs 1,700 dollar. The difference it quality is not near far enough apart to justify the cost.
They were both new once. As I said, the Focus is on-par with basically anything else in its price bracket. That doesn't mean you have to like it.
The ram was a daily driver from 95-09 and was a driver for me when needed until I bought the chevy. But yes now it's a garage queen. But it is very capable of driving down the road safety and adequately right now.
So leave it parked. You aren't doing it any favours just running it and not driving it. I pointed that out earlier but the reasoning behind WHY seems to be lost on you
I'll be honest my comment about the ford being sensitive was mostly sarcasm figured you were bright enough to pick that up....really I did.
You aren't good at conveying sarcasm. Or using English. Don't worry, I didn't figure you'd be bright enough to figure that one out on your own so I decided to be blunt.
But I don't care for most fords. I find them the most tedious to work on and prefer not to.
That was the case for your previous two aliases on here too. Unless you want to pretend we didn't have these back-and-forths in the past.
That being said the drive train on the focus is a reliable combo. Just wish it didn't shake so much. Reminds me of my old saturn when it had a broken engine mount.
And I did do clear flood mode but when cranking the car it was obviously providing more fuel than it should been. Yes clear flood mode stops injector pulse but as soon as you let off the gas to do a normal start it should fire up not flood itself. The car is at fault. I understand you can't fathom the idea of a Ford vehicle having a problem but this one does. And when they find it I'll be sure to let you know what it is just so you can realize your not know it all that you think you are.
If you did clear flood, it would have started once the flood cleared. You keep your foot to the floor until it starts. That's how you perform it. So you did NOT perform "clear flood". And that also contradicts your opening post where you said you pumped it.
I've dealt with many problems with Ford vehicles, the brand is not infallible, just like any other. They all have issues and quirks. I've experienced the one you just did first hand on the Expedition (and other non-Ford vehicles as well) due to the reasons myself and others have outlined in this thread.
Your technique needs some work BTW. Making an inflammatory remark then trying to pin it on me as "fanboyism" because you are unwilling to admit to your own incompetence is quite transparent here. Instead of acknowledging that the process you followed was flawed and owning up to that you instead choose to make disparaging remarks about the vehicle/manufacturer because you of course can do no wrong and then you change and manipulate what transpired as the thread progresses until it in no way resembles what you posted originally.
