  1. I have a Ford Ranger (T6 style) which has just developed a clicking noise whenever I turn to the left. The sound is identical and consistent regardless of speed. It clicks (or pops) about 4 times when making a 90 degree turn to the left at an intersection. The same clicking noise is made when the car is completely stationary and I turn the wheel to the left. When turning to the right, it makes a faint scraping noise instead, like a very soft metal on metal. This just started a week ago. It sounds very much like the sound is coming from the steering column, not from outside the car. I can also feel a very, very slight vibration in the wheel when it pops turning left. I will take this into the dealer to get it checked, but I am in Thailand, and it is dangerous to take your car to a dealer for service if you do not already know what is wrong with it. I have had to have my car towed out of a dealership before that was running when I brought it in, after they disassembled my perfectly good engine and tried to extort money to fix it. I was advised by a mechanic after that to always get an independent of assesment of what is wrong with your car and make sure the dealer knows you know the real problem before allowing them to fix it. To say they should not be trusted is an understatement. A friend suggested it might be the "clock spring", but I will admit I know very little about modern car design. When I grew up steering columns were simple and didn't have such things. The truck has about 55,000 miles/92,000 kms and is 4 years old. Can anyone offer any advice on what this might be? It still drives fine, but I would rather get this repaired now in case it is something that could get worse in the future. Thanks for any advice.
  2. Hello! I'm 17 years old, and I'm saving up for my first car. I'm choosing between the Mazda 6, Kia Optima, and Ford fusion. I just CAN'T choose one. Please help! Thanks ":)
  3. Hello car lovers! I would like to share my hobby with you. I create realistic beautiful drawings of cars. If you want I can create for you custom car drawing.
  4. Hello members of Car Forums! This is my first time posting on this forum so please do forgive me if I sound too new. This isn't my first car purchase, but it's the first time I really feel connected with the process and involved, so I wanted to make sure I came to the right place. I'm looking to buy a used car with about a 8,000 max budget and today I ran into something that I wanted to ask some knowledgeable people about. A used dealership (a pretty well respected and legit one) near me got in a pair of 2011 Ford Fusion Hybrids today for $8500 each. They are in immaculate condition inside, have brand new looking tires, and only have about 40,000 on the odometer. The cars came from a fleet so they are both equipped the same. The owner of the lot said he only has them priced where he does due to the fact that they both definitely have some hail damage. This doesn't bother me, as I know it can positively effect price for the buyer without much of a downside beside aesthetics. I was wondering what you all think about even looking at an 8 year old hybrid car. I test drove one of the two and it seemed to be quite the exquisite experience. Everything was perfect, worked perfectly, sounded perfectly...(there was barely any sound at all) I know batteries are a concern as well as the CVT but they really do seem to be nice cars. Any opinions, thoughts, or concerns?
  5. Hi all, I have an 2005 Mk2 Focus 1.6 petrol Ti-VCT which has the electronically controlled thermostat. I am struggling with overheating issues, I wonder if anyone has any good tips After seeing the typical symptoms (pressure cap opens after it can't take it anymore and coolant is released through the cap the rest boils) I have found that the thermostat does not open. There is no or barely any circulation through the radiator. The dashboard gauge inside raises to 75°C normally, but stays there even if temperatures are way above 100°C Just to cross out other possibilities: - Using a garden hose I flushed all lines through the engine, the hoses, the radiator, there is no blockage in the system - the water pump is in good condition and creates the require head pressure - de-airing valve seem to be working fine - thermostat has been replaced, same symptoms with the new one - coolant thermal sensor (on the other side of the engine) replaced, same symptoms with the new one - cylinder head is sound, not cracked (checked by mechanic + coolant is clear) - Expansion tank cap replaced So all I have left to assume is that the thermostat doesn't get the electronic control signal to open. This type of thermostat doesn't open just by itself if dipped in boiling water(tested). I followed the wires from the thermostat housing to the central box where a bunch of wires go and found no physical injury. I checked all the fuses (both fuse boxes) which I imagined might have a role in temperature or engine control, all sound. Is there anything I can do to find out more? Is there any way to fix this if the fault is in the central electronics? If everything else fails, does anyone have experience with using a conventional thermostat instead? It looks like the housing matches, anyone knows if it really does? Can it cause a problem in engine control if thermostat wires are not connected (as there is nowhere to connect them)? Temperatures is still a problem, the best conventional thermostat I could find opens at 92 °C while the original opens at 98 °C. It still might be okay I guess, if 92 is measured before the engine and 98 is originally measured after the engine at the thermal sensor, then close enough I assume. Any comments, tips appreciated!

  8. Cars - When thinking about high-performance pickup cars, we do not usually compare them to sports cars. The latter has the ability to cut the tracks at very high speeds. The high performance of pickup is the ability to carry and pull heavy weights. F-150 Raptor 2019, we will find it a unique exception, as its high performance can be measured in the same way sports cars, whether in paved, or rugged roads Read More Visit : https://www.autospayback.com
  9. My 2010 Ford Focus oil temperature gauge started reading hot this evening. It is smoking. Once we leave it off for 10 minutes it’ll go back to normal but after 5 minutes it goes back to hot. We found the coolant was out so we tried that and it got hotter faster that way. What could the problem possibly be?

  13. According to foreign media reports, Turkey's economic crisis has had a serious impact on car companies including Ford, Toyota and Fiat Chrysler. After the devaluation of Turkey's Lira, Turkey's new car prices rose, leading to a drop in new car sales by about a third in 2018. New car sales in Turkey fell 34% to 543,231 in the first 11 months of 2018 compared with the same period last year, and fell 42% to 58,204 in the first 11 months of November, according to data from the Association of Automobile Dealers in early December. The Turkish Association of Automobile Manufacturers said that by the end of November 2018, Turkish automobile production had fallen by 8% to 1.43 million vehicles from a year earlier, and export volume was basically the same as last year, to 1.22 million vehicles. It is reported that Turkey attracts many car companies to put into production mainly because of its low production costs, rich resources of skilled and semi-skilled workers, and easy access to the European Union, Eurasia and the Middle East market. Many car companies have localized production in Turkey and provided customized models for the local market. European consumers prefer hatchbacks, while Turkish consumers prefer cars, which account for about half of the local market. As a supplier of automotive parts, Feilong Jiangli is sure to look forward to the recovery of the automotive market, so that parts suppliers can slowly recover.
  14. Ford, Toyota, BMW, Subaru, Volvo, Honda and Mercedes-Benz are planning routine shutdowns at their factories, including those in the United States that started after December 21 and are expected to resume production on 2nd,January. Nissan will follow a similar shutdown schedule, but will resume production on 3rd,January. The additional shutdown period of Lansing Grand River Plant will prepare for the new production shift model starting in mid-January. People familiar with the situation said that the Lansing Grand River plant has had two production shifts and plans to cancel one. Although the assembly line operates faster, the body and spray painting will continue to maintain two production shifts. The Lansing plant employs about 1,900 people and has stopped producing ATS cars since June. Production of Cadillac CTS is expected to end in the near future with the commissioning of CT5. Chevrolet Cormelo's sales showed a double-digit decline in 2018. The situation of the whole international automobile industry is not good, leading to the closure or shutdown of most automobile factories. As the largest pump manufacturer in China, Xixia Water Pump and its pump production subsidiary also bear certain pressure. But we have a large customer base and are not affected by it as a whole.

  20. Hello, My dad has a 65 mustang coupe with an I6. He has had this car since 75. Some body rust as with most old cars. Had the engine rebuilt 15+ years ago but not much in miles on it. He has had some set backs recently as he lost his job of 35 years. Due to thus he has come to the conclusion that he will probably never get to work on the car and so he has talked about getting the fluids changed out and driving it a few times then selling it. I find this to be frustrating. Not sure what the car is worth but I don't think he is selling for the money any way. Here is my question. If he were to give me the car what would you guys recommend doing to the car. As in keep it original or install a new engine. Body work I can do most of my self or can have my uncle help. What kind of investment would I be looking at with upgrades. Engine, transmission, new rearend, etc Thanks About Me: I'm new in this forum, I am a consultant and have worked with multiple firms You can check Broadcast Monitoring Video, one of my work.

  22. Reaching the level of autonomy where no human intervention is needed to drive a vehicle is an industry goal slated for the next decade. However, some companies, such as Ford Motor Co., expect to have Level 4 vehicles in the next five years, while Tesla Motors Inc. already has equipped its vehicles with self-driving hardware and expects to install the software to go with it by next year.

  24. I am a teenager, looking for a used either SUV, truck or sedan(Preferably a SUV or truck). I have up to $35k but I would love to keep it under $32k. I live in the Northeast so it needs to have AWD or 4WD. Also I don't like Asian cars, I just don't think they look nice. Reliability is not really an issue. Mostly looking for a car with good looks and good features. I've been mostly looking at 2012-2014 Grand Cherokees, Explorers and F-150s.
