    Dynamic fluid replacement with a modern device is not invasive by any stretch of the imagination. It hooks up to the coolant lines and gradually replaces all fluid while the transmission pumps the fluid around by itself with the engine running. Just had it done for my Toyota last year. Probably too late (past 100K miles) but it was better than not to.

    Coolant Smell

    Some cars have permanent coolant smell outside the cabin from new with no leaks whatsoever.

    low power

    Check for leaks. I had a leak in boost sensor hose and also a bad boost sensor. No power whatsoever.

    In the world of halogens they are. Complete crap compared to my Toyota or Honda with factory HID which light up the moon if needed but better than Gen2 with halogens.

    Heh, my dealer insisted on the transmission fluid to be for life.

    Gen1 headlights are much better than Gen2.

    Osram Nightbreakers work very, very good in the headlights. No need to mess with LEDs.

    Basic Maintenance Suggestions

    In snow belt it’s advisable to perform underbelly wash every once in a while in the winter to get salt/mud out of places you don’t want it. The thicker the dirt layer the better it is for salt to do its thing. It should be available in every car wash.
  10. My leaf springs never made a squeak during the 10 years of ownership.
  11. Exactly. Dont remove them unless absolutely necessary.
  12. The front suspension is quite fordish. Luckily the suspension parts are cheap. But the tie rods only have outer ends. If the inner ones go it's the steering rack.
  13. The wrap shop removed mine and offered to order me a new set as they saw that the plugs will not be watertight when reinstalled. I said screw this, I'll fit them myself. Took me 10 minutes to fix the plugs with some silicone. Been fine since.

    Transit connect 1.8 troubles help

    Intercooler pipes enlarge under boost, that's normal. That's why they have the metal rings on them.
