SOURCE: years ago i used to smear grease on head and block and then the gasket and pull the head down no problem do you guys use anything

Most modern engines don't require or recommend sealant on head gaskets since machining tolerances are much tighter now. Weather or not you have to use sealant depends on what engine you are working on. All manufacturers are different and it is always best to consult the manual for the specific engine you are working on.

Many head bolts are not reusable either. They tend to be torque-to-yield so they stretch out when used and have to be replaced. Again, this depends on the engine and you didn't list the engine you are working on. Typically, the part supplier you use can tell you if the bolts are TTY or not.

Could a bad CV joint damage bearings?

Yes, unfortunately they could.
It might or might not have anything to do with the bearings, but that torn boot just might be the culprit.
Your bearings are sealed from the factory, so they should not have been compromised by the boot, but if you ever took your car into deep water, that water might have migrated into the bearing from the inside.
This is NOT likely, but is possible.
More likely is, you got a bad bearings.
Happened to me 2 years ago.
The "new " bearing installed by the dealer lasted 1 year, then failed. God bless your efforts.

My check engine light has been on for a long time. I had a co worker, (the auto tech teacher at the school where I teach) of mine diagnose the problem with his diagnostic tools and he cannot find...

I would try one more thing before taking it to the dealer. Replace the gas cap. If you are not getting a release of vacuum sound when you take your gas cap off, that means your tank is presurrizing which could also cause the same fault.

Mercury Montego won't start. Started 10 minutes

You could check the Inertia switch and see if the fuel pump is cut off.
If that is Okay I would disconnect the battery and see if the system reboots.
If it starts after that, go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan.
If it does not start, then try putting in the security code if you have a keypad. If no keypad, then try your other carkey, your ID chip may have died.

No A/C, no odometer, no speedometer, ABS light...blown 10 amp fus

I had this same problem a few years ago. Got to the point that the dealer just gave me a box of fuses to replace when it blew. They could not find the source nor could they replicate the situation in house. The 99 Windstar had a recall somewhere in the breaking system-- and leaks could cause a short in the electrical system. Once that repair was made, I never had the problem again. I like to think my constant complaining (car was still under warranty at the time) allowed corporate to make the connection. Look for the recall code.

Are Discount Car Care Products Known to Cause Harm?

Nitrusinc: WOW! loaded question! Depending on the store and the, sometimes on the product, it can be made by the same company but marketed under the store label. "O" Reilly's has a lot of house brands which are discount prices which either match or come close to the performance of a name brand. Often if you check the labels, there may be guarantees for the products. Both "O"Reilleys and Auto Zone can actually look up your purchases from the past. ArmorAll will only offer so much protection against the sun, no matter how much or how little of it you apply. Certain GM and Chrysler products, the dashboards would rapidly deteriorate and cave in with the slightest touch after a few years. The only way you could keep that from happening, was to cover them when the car was parked and exposed for lengthy periods of time in the heat and sun light.
Paint in many domestic cars were bad about literally peeling off the vehicles. It didn't matter what you did to maintain the finish. Clearcoats would start to cloud up and start to come off. Again it seemed to be more pronounced on domestic cars than imports.
No products in the world could prevent these problems from occurring.
Steering wheels near the top where they were exposed would fall apart. Ford products seemed to show the least deterioration over time of the big three as far as materials deteriorating. Anyway, the main thing is application. You must have a clean dry and relatively cool surface to apply anything onto a finish. You do NOT apply waxes in direct sunlight if possible! Here is the $50.00 question?
On some products there is not much difference in price between the name brand as opposed to the house brand/ OR stores may sales on name brands from time to time. Watch for them and then buy them. There are some differences in car waxes. You can go on-line to consumer's reports and often find comparisons of products which will answer your questions. If I'm not mistaken the primary ingredient in products which remove water is alcohol.
I hope I've given you some of what you are looking for.

Where is the thermostat on a 2000 trooper

Please post what engine you have! There are a couple different motors offered.
You should be able to follow the upper radiator hose to the t-stat housing on either the 4cyl or gm V6, I 'm not sure if there is another engine option for that year. I was previously a Isuzu tech 10 years ago, but am not up to date on newer models.
