    Fuel Mileage

    The speed and wind drag has always been the most important factor in fuel mileage . It is nice to see that the physics has not changed even if the world seems to have come off the rails.
  2. Great . It is always nice when thing go better than expected.
  3. Here are two links that will help you , if replacing the sensor does not cure it then it could be the thermostat and housing. Keep us posted. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Qj4HWhxB9J8?rel=0&autoplay=1 https://www.youtube.com/embed/VNcRPxGXCz8?rel=0&autoplay=1
  4. All of you have pretty much covered why in the work /Minivan size in the US Ford has the edge at the moment.
  5. RPM, If you use the transmission in the manual mode you can see the rpm change for the gear changes . then you would see if your downshift was causing a two gear change.

    2013 TC Engine Swap

    The way that swap would work is if the Base engines are similar then you would have to use all the fuel exhaust and electronic components from the 2 .0, if all that stuff bolted on to the 2.5 the computer would not need to be up dated. The possible down side would be the extra torque going into The Transmission.

    Vibrations in rear drum breaks

    The real reason it is hard to fine a shop with an Brake shoe arc grinder is the dust problem . There should be no asbestos in the linings, but you can't be sure. You can speed up the process by adjusting the brakes a bit tighter. If you reverse the car smartly and stop it you will adjust the brakes . The brakes will feel, warm to the touch when they are adjusted properly . 70 or 80 degrees c.
