Make sure the antifreeze is a 50:50 mix for max freeze protection. The engine oil should be multi-viscosity (5w-30 or 10w-30). Fit all-season radial tires if you don't have them already. Carry a set of tire chains so that you can get around if the snow flies. Make sure your heater and defroster work well. That fairly well covers the essentials, but you will likely discover a few extras like a snow/ice scraper for the windows. Bring a warm coat and hat if you have them. Some folks place rocks or sand in the bed to get better rear end traction, but don't make the trip with them. Sand is also handy if you are stuck on ice. Good luck!

Hello i have a 2001 ford expedition and the service engine soon light is on. im being cheap so my friend told me to hold down the trip button on the odometer than turn the key on, so i did that and it...

take those codes to a Auto zone or somewhere like that and they can tell you exactly what they mean. You can also go to one of those places and use their machines and then go to ford with the codes and they will be able to help you a lot better. good luck.

We just bought a 1978 ford sportsman motorhome. It runs great the generator works but we cant get the fridge to work. It was winterized I dont think its broken but Im just not sure what Im doing wrong.

the fridge in my camper wont work on 110V either , and I have been told to replace the element that heats the (amonia) coolant. I never use the 110V anyways so i havn't fixed it. Fridge works fine on Gas , but it takes quite a while for these evaporative type of fridge to produce noticable cold. Very much a different system that your household fridge.

Want start when its cold outside its a diesal

OK well sounds warm im from minnesota it was -51 today with the wind chill. Well fist off have you ever replaced both the fuel filters on it before ? !6 not too cold but when it gets cold out if you arent using winter thaw or some additive in the fuel it will start to gell up or wax up. Does the truck smoke at all when you try to start it ? and how long does the wait to start light stay on ?

3rd gear

If it'll only stay in second, you're in "limp mode" which the car goes into when it detects a problem that higher speeds could make worse. Have the car scanned for chassis and drivetrain fault codes at a shop (these don't always trip a check engine light, so even if the light is out, you may still have a code). If there's a fault, it should be logged in the memory, and that can be used to track down the problem.
