    well thank you for answering, a mecanics technician advised me to clean the from Katalysator exhaust in my Suzuki Grand Vitara 2001, for the reason of reducing the fuel consumption, his solution was to drill the core of the exhaust by an automatic drill in order to give it more air infiltration space, but i though that it will be rediculous to do this because it will change all the fuel and air calibration, so what the ultimate solution will be? taking into considaration that there is no spare parts for Katalysator and exhaust in my area (Beirut) unless locally made,
    thank you in advance for reading this.

    yes he is right in what he says ,but the problem is do you have a mechanical vehicle inspection every year like we do in europe ,if you do this the exhaust emmissions will go very high and the vehicle will not pass its inspection .I do know they have this type of vehicle inspection in israel also some other arab states have introduced it as well .so its up to you what you do ,but if the goverment introduve inspections next year then it will need a new cat converter exhaust

How can I replace transmission control solenoid?

Control solenoid ? explain . Shift solenoid , pressure control solenoid ?
The shift solenoid valves are two identical, normally open, electronic exhaust valves that control upshifts and downshifts in all forward gear ranges. These shift solenoid valves work together in a combination of ON and OFF sequences in order to control the positions of the 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4 shift valve trains. The PCM monitors numerous inputs in order to determine the appropriate solenoid state combination and the transmission gear for the vehicle operating conditions
The pressure control (PC) solenoid valve is a precision electronic pressure regulator that controls transmission line pressure based on current flow through its coil windings. As current flow is increased, the magnetic field which is produced by the coil moves the solenoid's plunger further away from the exhaust port. Opening the exhaust port decreases the output fluid pressure, which is regulated by the PC solenoid valve. This ultimately decreases line pressure. The PCM controls the PC solenoid valve based upon various inputs including throttle position, fluid temperature, MAP sensor, and gear state.

I have 1998 ford expedtion runs rough pipes get red hot. took pipes loose. no power still. put new plugs no luck please help!

It takes a lot of heat to make the exhaust pipes get hot enough to glow red. It is a dangerous condition and can lead to a vehicle fire. A clogged catalytic converter or manifold could cause this, but ultimately the heat from the exhaust fumes is not exiting the system properly. Even a clogged tail pipe could cause this. A vandal might have stuck something in the end of the tail pipe.
It is running rough because it cannot push the exhaust out and therefore cannot take in enough air.
Regardless of the cause, have this inspected and the blockage/clog removed repaired and do not continue to drive the vehicle with this condition.

How do you change sensors 02 and where are they located on 2004 Lincoln TC Ultimate? Thanks

jack up the front of the car both sides using jack stands to support vehicle on frame rails. then locate sensors usually either on the exhaust manifolds or just below on the pipe coming out of the engine exhaust manifold, unplug wire from sensor and use the appropriate size box end wrench to remove sensor occasionally a map gas propane torch must be used to heat the old sensor up for 3-5 minute before it can be removed, if the plug is to big to fit through the box end side of wrench cut the wires to slide wrench over sensor

Start the car open the hood. with the hood open listen and smell for the leak. Probably the frt exhaust manifold leaking. Independent mechanic can repair just as easy. No need for dealer. If the leak is bad enough you will smell exhause leak. Look for the area with the greatest amount of noise.

Strange noise!

My 2005 GMC 2500HD (8.1 lt) had the same problem. I just had an exhaust leak fixed today. The right front manifold bolts were broken and the manifold was warped. The repair was 6.5 hours labour plus gaskets, seals, bolts and the manifold machining (parts were $130 CDN).
