The PCM is located on the passinger side. It is mounted in the firewall and to get access to it you have to remove the plastic shroud that the windshield wipers are mounted in. It has to be removed from under the hood even though most of the PCM sits inside under the dash.
Once you remove the plastic shroud be careful that when you reinstall it that the rubber seal against the windshield is sealed or when it rains the PCM will fill with water. This happened on my 2005 freestar after the windshield had been replaced. Ford has put out a TSB on this problem but they won't stand behind any repairs. I sealed the plastic shroud with silicon sealant. I glued the rubber seal right to the glass, Have not had any more problems since.

Why is my 97 Grand Jeep Cherokee leaking fluid,when the radiator and the fan is not damaged?


pin holes in pipes or the radiator cannot be seen unless you get the pressure up on the water system., run engine to full temp and go round looking for the leak best if you put some food die in the water as this will help locate the leak, you will need to change the water when you find the leak to fix it or replace the part leaking. keep the engine running while you look around the system the fan will keep it form over boiling but with the die on water it will be seen better use red or blue die. or something bright. flush system after to remove the die.

Why my 2010 Venza drive on sometimes while driving it sound like the transmission is in neutral


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat sh

Wheres my air pump suspension valve


It doesn't work that way. The valve block that controls the ride height is driven by an on-board compressor and governed by a computer. You will need to go to a Land Rover specialist. From the sound of it, you probably have a leaking line or maybe a damaged air spring. I doubt it is anything more serious

High water pressure causing overflow


The pipe from the pressure switch is either blocked, damaged or has become disconnected from the pressure switch ....so is not sensing the water level in the drum. From your filter you will see either a thin black or clear tube going upto the pressure switch - check this out. If damaged change; actually it is a simple fix. Spares can be located from this very site - fixya. Good water flow is gud, but after your wash see that the valve on the wall faucet is turned off.
If helped pl click so.
