installed a pioneer aftermarket stereo then had to take it to ford to see why the check engine light came on. it turns out the mechanic at the place i took it too to change the plugs cross-threaded the #3 plug to such a degree that it wasnt even halfway down in there and was causing that cylinder to not fire right. they removed the plug and retapped the cylinder and i was up and running again. im never going back to that place again lol

Finally, finally, FINALLY got my 02 FX4 running!!!!

It was down for the longest time because of clutch issues. It turns out I got a bad slave cylinder from Summit Racing. Bummer.

Put a new slave cylinder in, Centerforce clutch, POR-15 the front and rear driveshafts, new crossmember, all new hardware, and ended up having to tear it all back apart again just to replace a brand new slave cylinder.

Well, after I got it all back together today, I took it for a ride and I was so happy to have my truck back that I was nearly in tears .

So then, I went to Subway to celebrate lol.

On the way back, I'm at a stop light and there's this 2000~ish Grand Prix in the passing lane. Well, I'm watching the light and out of the corner of my eye, I see the passenger in the Grand Prix give me a look. Well the driver was watching the light, same as me, and he did a false start. I thought... OH REALLY!?!?. Ok if that's how it's going to be... BAM light turns green and the guy got a car lengths lead on me. Meanwhile, I'm still back there trying to hook up in first gear... Screw it.. I floored it though first and second and I started catching up. I thought to myself "NO WAY I'm losing this!" Kept it floored and slid my foot sideways off the clutch at every shift. By third, I was half a car length ahead of the guy so I kept on it. I could tell he was still trying, but by now, it's either win, or back off and merge to avoid hitting oncoming traffic! So by now I'm redlining 3rd and I guess I'm doing 60? (in a 25 mph zone...) Slammed it into 4th and the punk *** backed off!! NEW CLUTCH (and 4 brand new tires) FTW!

LMAO what a way to break in a new clutch

I watched it get snowed-on for the first time in about 7 months. M/Ts and REVOS are coming off on Sunday, Stockers with Blizzaks going back on.
