    2018 vs 2019

    Woman keep you young , tough to attract them while driving around on a scooter with a top speed of 15 mph though . I pull up to the ladies on my scooter and say " Hello miss i'm herb and you are " and they always say " NOT INTERESTED" . Suffice to say Scooters are NOT chick magnets , time to ditch the scooter for an electric wheelchair , that should work well , hopefully i can ditch the helmet .

    Might want to look at charging system, batteries can have premature failures but generally are very reliable (even if they fail very predictably). Its also possible that something is draining the battery. My son-in-laws VW had a fuel pump relay that wasn't shutting the fuel pump off when it was parked - ever noticed how some vehicles will run the fuel pump when you open the drivers door? Over several days it would drain the battery. Many years ago I made a voltmeter on a cigarette lighter plug that I could check the voltage with - this was sooooo long ago the voltmeter is an analog one! For $13 ++++ you can get a voltmeter USB adapter from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Jebsens-Charger-Battery-Monitor-Voltage/dp/B01N00I4TM/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=usb+adapter+voltmeter&qid=1568725368&sr=8-4

    Got a jump from a neighbor. Didn't help and now the instruments don't light up so it's looks like it's drained. Calling my guy. I guess it's tow time.

    Put a good booster pak on it , Mine has had the battery get discharged for no apparent reason. It is easy to jump the starter to test if needed. Keep us posted

    Not starting!

    My wagon doesn't want to start today. I'm getting clicking but no turnover. Lights and displays come on including dash, radio, etc. Does that indicate that it's probably something wrong with the starter? Going to try and get a jump from a friend but at this point I'm not hopeful, especially since I put in a new battery this year.

  9. Thanks, Been a bit busy and haven't checked in. Still haven't had time to try and get the Steering control working though I contacted Crutchfield to see if they have any ideas before I send it back. No issues with the Metra dash kit and vents. Seems to be working well. The angle of the radio is set by the way it rests in it's cradle with two pegs at the back and it doesn't seem like it can be tilted level. Your experience is very encouraging. What model year do you have? I'll ask the Crutchfield guy about the Maestro if we can't get the Axxess working. If you've got any advice regarding the airbag I'd love to hear it.

    Generally, the measurement accuracy is high. The thermometer also measures the temperature distribution inside the object within a certain temperature range. However, for moving objects, small targets, or objects with small heat capacity, large measurement errors are generated. Commonly used thermometers include bimetal thermometers, glass liquid thermometers, pressure thermometers, resistance thermometers, thermistors, and thermocouples.Model: LM26CIM5-TPA / NOPB

    Sorry , not buying it and Disco and the words "Good times" do not go together !!! Look 50 we know you consider yourself a tremendous physical specimen where gravity and aging doesn't apply but we need to get back to reality . It's time to acknowledge that you're in the "Fossil " stage of life which means that at any time you could expire without notice , and i mean that in a good way so don't take it the wrong way . Fifty , there is no surfing anymore , your days of stalking Barry Manilow are over , there is no more doing splits on the dance floor to the "Bee Gees , at least not without ripping a huge whole in your trousers and being carted off on a stretcher . Once in the fossil stage it is wise to pray that you will make it through the entire night , if we do make it till first light that is a very good sign because many in the fossil stage do not make it and perish. Always remember that "The Golden Years" are the best years of your life , love your always super positive attitude & hoping i sent a little cheer your way .

    Um, note that diagram is from the manual for the 2015 USA-spec 2.5 gas engine (as best as I can tell... the manual is not always clear about the differences between the 2.5 and the 1.6 turbo). Euro spec diesel is probably going to be quite different from this picture.

    Unless, of course, you look at it from another perspective. 2014-2018 gave the engineers enough insight into what works and doesn't work. So 2019 model features the best of the 2nd generation, in addition to all of the fixes. 2019 engine and transmission combination probably upgrades to correct where 1st & 2nd generation were deficient. Power. Fuel economy. Maintenance and mechanical failures. Same way the 77 Mustang 2 got a T-top roof. Which opened the doors to the mid 77-78 King Cobra with a snake painted on the hood. Ford's answer to the Firebird painted on the hood. Disco was King. Good times.

    2018 vs 2019

    I decided to purchase the 2018 with the 2.5 for the exact reason Fifty stated which is i didn't want something that's in it's first year of production . I have been very pleased with the 2018 with the 2.5 . I also much preferred the "Fog lamp" design in the 2018's and previous models i did not like the subtle design changes on the 2019 , i also did not like the dash changes on the 2019 .

    2018 vs 2019

    If you have the opportunity drive both. That will tell you what you want to know. If you do please report I am excited to know a real world comparison of the performance difference. At one point I will test drive a 2019 just to see . As I have made the last payment on the 2014 last month I am going to take a Rest from the payment race.

    If the coolant stays at the normal level with out loss then there is no overheating.

    Heater and cooling system

    Eddy Kilowatt posted a good exploded view of the cooling system. There appear to be 2 hoses in the Degas bottle. I hope the diagram helps you figure out which hose goes where, and where those bubbles may be returning from.

    Heater and cooling system

    Is it loosing coolant? You can test for combustion gasses in the coolant with a tester. If it is not loosing coolant then you could have a thermostat issue. If there is no heat then the coolant is low, top it off and see how long it takes to get low again

    Heater and cooling system

    I have been told it could be a head gasket, there seems to be air in the system. I really hope not, as I know this could be expensive. The coolant level is low, when I release the pressure cap, it comes back up. Where's it hiding?? There are bubbles in the return tube (the small one, I think is a bypass, at the bottom of the bottle.
