SOURCE: Ball joint replacement-2003 Ford Sport Trac

if you dont have a ball joint press and dont know how to use one then dont do it, but if you do its not that bad of a job just jack the truck up under the control arm remove the brake rotor then take the lower ball joint nut off then use a pickle fork to break the ball joint loose then take the axle nut off push the axle out of the bearing and use the ball joint press to remove and replace the ball joint

SOURCE: service engine soon/ABS/Trac lights are staying on

Have the ABS codes scanned. This will get you started in the right direction. Possibility is that one or more of the wheel speed sensors is not working or intermittent - could be wiring or connectors on these as well. Another possibility is the EBCM, Electronic Brake Control Module. I believe the EBCM will throw 1216 code in many cases. THese can be rebuilt online for about $150.00.
The more likely problem is the wheel speed sensors. THese are an integral part of the wheel hub. About $100.00 each for the part. About $250.00 each to have them replaced. They can be tested with an AC voltmeter by spinning the wheel. Also, they should read roughly 850 ohms resistance. The ABS codes will tell you which ones are not reporting.

Check engine light came on and stayed on. There is no other lights on to indicate trouble.

Not unusual. The CEL is there to tell you that the onboard computer has detected an anomaly (or more), and has stored a code in its memory to assist in determining the failure. You need an OBD-II code reader to retrieve the codes from the computer and take whatever corrective action is recommended based upon the code(s) found.

Check engine light blinking

When the Check Engine light comes on steady, it means that the on-board computer (ECM) has detected a malfunction and stored a code. It also, if necessary, has taken measures to optimize operation of the vehicle, working around the anomaly. When the Check Engine light is blinking, it indicates that the ECM has gone into "open loop" or "limp" mode. This is when some critical issue is preventing the ECM from properly controlling the vehicle and it has fallen back on a preset standard configuration. There will also be failure codes normally associated with this. The vehicle, depending upon the cause of the problem, can operate in a way that seems normal to almost non-operational, depending on the component that has failed and the operational demand placed on the vehicle at the time. You need to have the ECM codes scanned and take repair actions ASAP.

I have a 2004 3.9L Mustang with the "check engine soon" light on. I read the codes and 0300, 0301, 0305 and 0316 were up, while the car was still driving fine. Soon, it started to lose strenght, I bar

Best to read the codes first---code p0300 refers to random multiple cyl-- misfire detected causes-- spark plugs---HT leads--ignition coils--wiring.
code p0301 refers tocylinder 1-- misfire detected causes ---engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition /fuel system ---injector---ECT/Maf sensor(Mass air flow) ECM.
code p0305 refers to cylinder 5 misfire detected causes ---same as 0301
code p0316 refers to misfire detected during start up -first 1000 rpms---causes--- engine mechanical fault---wiring----ignition/fuel system---injector. I would run a fuel system pressure pressure test as the common causes here is the fuel/injectors

I'm pulling a trailer and "Park Asst Blocked" light came on the dash. Is it ok to drive with that light on?

{: ) When the park assist system detects a hitched object behind your vehicle, it will normally display that "Park assist Blocked" message. You can still drive safely even with that message. When you're done, just remove the hook off. Turn off engine for a few minutes. turn it on again and drive your truck around for 30kmh or so, then test again the park assist system.

When i have the car off with key on, indicator reads out "low oil pressure" if i drive this vehicle like this, can it harm the engine? the "check engine" light is on, i've already...

Without the engine running there is no oil pressure the oil pump is driven by the engine. Therefore with the engine turned off and the key turned to the on position, there is no pressure to read. If the check engine light is on with the engine running, you can have it scanned to determine which system needs attention. Most larger parts stores will scan for free but you need to buy a chilton or haynes manual for code meanings, individual component tests, and repair instructions.. (manuals are usually under $30)
