If you have to change the oil change reminder light back to green, look for a small hole on the face of the panel near the light. Turn the key in the ignition but don't start the car. Insert the end of a straightened paper clip in the hole and push firmly until light starts to blink and turns green. When it turns green you're good to go! Hope this helps.

While driving oil started shooting out were the oil filter meets the housing. and i notice it was loose. i bought a new filter and made sure the old gasket was not there and that the threads were fine. i...


may need to change the oil pump. although i would try tightening it on with a filter wrench to make sure the threads arent stretched. If it still leaks, th threads have stretched or something towards the top of the pump and allows the filter to come loose.

My alarm on my 1989 Ford Thunderbird was tripped and now my car wont start Ford wont tell me how to reset it how do i reset it?


Just a guess but usually you can reset those just by removing the power. Disconnect the battery for an hour or overnight if need be.


That's how an ex neighbor of mine, a repo man (or thief, I'm still not sure as he did this drunk at 3am), did it. Fun to wake
