Re: ac compressor

Mine is 2005 with same problem - AC broken. less than 80,000 miles. I would not turn on AC or heater since the smell is not good. Mechanic told me did not run heater or AC. I am in Los Angeles. Without heat is still acceptable.

Re: Which transmission do I have in my 2005 - 500?

If you are not sure 6 sp or cvt, let your dealer find out. If 6 sp, using ford OEM transmission oil, it is not bad. If CVT, then done frash in dealer is best. I recalled the dealer had CVT in SE FWD. I almost bought One with Black or Green. That is why I will suggest if you are not sure bring your c...

Re: 2006 Ford 500 AWD CVT TRANSMISSION ISSUE / ADVICE NEEDED

If there is a Carmax dealer around your area, you could bring your car to check how much your car worth. It is free. Then, you decide want to fix or trade in other new car dealers or sell to Carmax. My friend used to have Landlorver Freelander. The transmission went down before 60,000 miles. He deci...

Re: 2006 Ford 500 AWD CVT TRANSMISSION ISSUE / ADVICE NEEDED

Maybe it is time to trade your ford five hundred to a new car. The question is how much for you trade in?

For transmission service, I like every 30,000 miles to do transmission service but not totally flush out.
I am afraid that the transmission could be broken before 60,000 miles.

Re: Engine mount shot

I got it in but it shifted. Can I use glue or rubber cement to keep it stationary? Not sure about it. Someone in forum used glue. That is why I Like OEM product with no problems later on since I did not know how to fix by myself. The labor was not cheap for fixing engine mount either dealership or ...

Re: Engine mount shot

Not only top mounts are expensive. The rest mounts are also expensive. There are total 6 mounts in ford five hundred.

By the way, transmission oil and steering oil must use ford OEM transmission oil.
