  1. I can say this. I am very lucky to have what I do and how I came to have it. But I will say this. The lift was the least expensive part of the process. The building and the concrete floor were the most expensive. The lift itself was only around $3k for a 10,000 lb. Me and Dad waited a long time to be able to have that thing. Spent many years crawling under our cars with Dad in the wet mud and snow to fix a problem. (it sucks) But no matter what equipment or how much it costs, if you do not use it properly and continually, then what is the point in having it. Be safe my friends, and stay greasy.
  2. Not much more. Still working on it and a few other projects at the same time. Slow going right now.
  3. I like my jack personally. It has the stands built in.
  4. Not sure what year you are inquiring about. I never used a floor jack with my 2012 TC but I did use ramps and had no problems. I have seen others mention that they have used floor jacks by taking a piece of wood and cutting a slot into it. Then placing the pinch weld into the slot, and placing the wood block onto the floor jack.

    Depending on which year model of the Transit Connect you have. 2010-2013 you do not have that option. You have to get out and figure out which one it is by deduction.
  6. Ok. Managed to find the 2016 owners manual online and verified that this info is incorrect. I also did not see anything listed for the DLR's as far as a fuse or relay to check. More than likely they are piggybacked onto another system and not listed. One thing I have noticed on my 2012 TC is that everything seems to be tied into each other someway or another. Removing one fuse to solve one problem creates 1 or more new problems. If all else fails you could pull one of my redneck moves and just put a piece of tape over the light. Now days the lights are LED's so you cant just pull the cluster and remove the bulb. :( And if none of this works then the last option is to ditch the hids and return to halogens or try LED's. But I hope that it does not come to that. I loved my HID and LED's.
  7. Ok. I am not sure if this would be the same or not. But you can try and check Relay #15 in the fuse box under the hood. This should be the Daytime Running Lamps R15 relay. I would also check your owners manual to verify this before attempting just to confirm that this is the correct relay for the 2016 Transit Connect Model. I express double checking because this is info that I acquired from the internet via other sites and from another continent. It may be wrong.
  8. What year TC ? Mine does not have the day time running lights either.
  9. Leave no evidence behind. Burn everything and leave.
  10. Winders down, radio up and one hand on the wheel. It's even nicer as fall draws nearer.
  11. Locking easy fuel plug ?

    This is the only capless fuel system I have dealt with on a Ford. It was on a Ford Transit 250 I had the pleasure of playing around with. You have to physically open the drivers side door before the fuel door can be opened to reveal the fuel port. But it sounds like you are describing something completely different. So I guess Ford decided to change something between the Transit and the Connects.
  12. Locking easy fuel plug ?

    If it is a cap less fuel system then that means they have already popped the window out and unlocked the door just to be able to reach the fuel port. Missing gas at this point is the least of the worries. In my neck of the woods if they have gotten that far, you do not have the van anymore or the gas. Now the odor of gas in the cabin is a real problem.

    I noticed he was not posting and looked him up on here to see when he last logged in. He is banned from the site. No clue what happened and I am not going to push the issue. What ever it was, it was before I became a moderator. But welcome back to the forum.
