  • Ford Explorer 04' Misfire Puzzle - Help!?

    I have an 04 Explorer, 4.0 105,000 miles. Ive owned it for 8 months. When I bought it (96000 miles) we done a complete tune up. Wires, plugs, coil pack, air filter, you name it. I had the oil changed immediately and continued to on time since. It has ran beautifully since day one with no mechanical trouble. There has been a slight (very slight) miss in it when idling but you have to set very still to detect it. Last tuesday after driving for about 30 min. I was going about 35 MPH and all of a sudden I felt a strong vibration coming from the front end. I let off the gas and it stopped. Pressed the gas and it continued. Very little power loss if any just a strong vibration. The CEL came on, blinking at 1st then stayed on the further I drove. I only drove about 2 miles and then I parked it and called AAA. While waiting for AAA, I re cranked it a few time and it cranked fine even ran fine... just lots of vibration coming from the engine. Had it towed to my backyard mechanic who read the CEL code and it came back misfire cyl 4, 5, & 6. He couldnt find anything after 4 hours so he took it to a muffler shop to see if it was the catalytic converter. Muffler shop says its all clear and suggests timing???. It cranks fine (they even drove it on/ff the rollback). Runs but hesitates/ misses w/ CEL on. All new Plugs/ Wires/ and coil pack. Any suggestions or similar experiences? At a loss for who to take it to next.

  • Movie name? Mentally Handicapped Young girl. African American family.?

    I was watching The Color Purple this weekend and it reminded me of another film set probably in the same era (early 1900s to the 1940s). I remember the details vaguely. One of the characters was a young African American female (very light skinned) who appeared to be mentally handicapped and near the end of the movie she had become pregnant. For some reason I think she may have been made to sleep out back in a shed/ shack separate from the other family members. Ive searched the internet for 2 days and Ive come up empty handed. Thanks for any answers! Even wrong ones :-)

  • used Explorer, 97000 miles, change Trans Fluid?

    I bought an 04 2WD 4.0 Ford Explorer used w/ 97000 miles. No maintenance records. There are no leaks all the fluids look good and are full. There is a slight missing when idling but very faint. Im planning to change the air filter and have the oil changed as precautions because I dont know when it was last done. Because of the missing I will alos change the plugs & wires and use a good fuel injection cleaner. My question is should I have the trans fluid changed since I dont know when it was last done or if it has ever been done? I have already ruled out flushing it.

  • long arrival time Russian Federation.?

    I sell items on eBay overseas and I have my first problem. I sold an item to a buyer in the Russian Federation 11/11/10. The item has a tracking number and arrived abroad and was sorting in Moscow on 12/6/10. That is the last update for the tracking number. The buyer is asking for a full refund until the item arrives. This seems unfair because the item I sold is in the Russian Federation, it has the correct address on it provided by paypal. So my item is obviously in his country. Im worried he will open a dispute with paypal and they will force me to refund his $300. Plus his $40 for shipping. Has anyone had any trouble shipping to the Russian Federation and took a long time to arrive?

  • Stomach pain nausea ever since last Seroquel refill. Help please.?

    My 9 year old (Aspergers w/ ADHD, and mood disorder, possible bipolar) has been on Seroquel 50 mg at bedtime for more than two years, along with other meds. I had it refilled on 11/30 and ever since then he has had stomach pain and nausea every evening right after taking it. The pill doesn't look different but I'm worried there may be something wrong with this batch since the pain happens only at night after taking it and didn't start until right after I had it refilled. After tonight I'm stopping it until he sees the doctor Wednesday. Anyone have something similar happen?

  • Wrong weight on my shipping label?

    I printed a shipping label through USPS.com. I weighed everything before I packed it, including the shipping box and it was 4lbs. I entered 4lbs and printed the label. after I packed it up, it actually weighs 4lbs & 4ounces. I cant void the label, when I drop it off at the post office can I just pay them to add additional postage to the box and still use the same label/ delivery confirmation number?

  • Help, 9 yr old picky eater, No peanuts at school!?

    So this is the 3rd yr his school has been "peanut free". My son has Asperger's disorder and people with this are notorious for being picky eaters. My son will only eat a select few things period. So I pack his lunch every day. Since there is no way to warm up any food he may want to bring to school for lunch the only other option for him is peanut butter sandwiches. Once the school went peanut free.. we were at a loss of what to do! So I tried heating things he will eat just prior to leaving for school and insulating them to try and keep them warm but by noon most of the food has been room temperature. So at this point he is taking toast (because he doesnt like the texture of plain bread), fruit, yogurt (that I freeze so it stays cold) chips and a desert. I feel so horrible for not providing him with a balanced lunch. He will only eat: mac n cheese, spaghetti, certain chicken nuggets (its a texture issue), plain noodles, peperoni pizza without tomato sauce, scrambled eggs, waffles, peanut butter, potatos, toasted bread, biscuts, - I have to be creative with sneaking in the vegetables and cutting the fat! He will not eat: sandwich meat, cheese, hot dogs, burgers, chicken. So Im trying to think of something I can send to school for his lunch that doesnt need to be heated. Im open to any and all suggestions! thank you!

  • Help! First Time Home Buyer credit?

    I bought a home for $128K in 2009. Amended my 2008 return to claim the credit. Married filing separately. But I bought the home with a co signer who is not my spouse. I only claimed $4000, but I believe I was eligible for the full $8000 since I was the only buyer eligible for the credit and I didn't buy the home with my spouse. If I am eligible for the full $8000, how do I go about getting the other $4000 since I already filed an amended 2008 return to claim the first $4000.

  • 8 month old Basset puppy drinks own urine?

    We have an 8 month old Basset Hound. He is "almost" house broken. We take him out continuously through out the day and he holds his poos until we go out (he used to do it inside and the promptly eat it.) He pees 2 or 3 times an hour. (no urinary tract or bladder infection) and he has always done this and promptly laps it up, cleaning up his messes. now that we have him trained as far as pooing inside Im trying to find out if there is something we can give him that will make his urine taste bad. He will only do it inside if he can lick it up, I feel if I can make it taste bad then he will not do it inside because he can't lick it up. I've tried "NO" and other things to discourage it but it hasn't worked. He doesnt hike his leg either , he just squats randomly so trying to catch him and rush him out the door doesnt work that easily, you can hardly tell he has done it until you hear the licking sound. Thanks!
