Was there ever a solution to random no start condition? The few instances I can find online, nobody ever has a solution. Maybe they all got frustrated and traded them in and/or set them on fire...

somewhere there is a Ford Ranger owner putting 11 quarts of oil into his truck so he can get a correct reading on his shorter Mustang dipstick.

ha, as someone who lived through the 80s and thought 0-60 in 6.5 seconds was awesome, let me tell you these cars are way faster. Definitely 5 secs or better.

Just change fluid, don't flush it. I think many times, either the flush itself or the wrong fluid gets put back it and wrecks the transmission.

Maybe, I had the chance to buy two different automatic convertible GTs for $29k & $31k before tax. And the $31k model was a premium. They were 2013s and on sale about 3 months ago.

Can you turn O2 sensors on without a tuner?
