  1. A good floor jack used under the front control arm and the Rear spring perch will let the TC be jacked up high enough to put a jack stand under the reinforced pinch weld area. Harbor freight has a nice aluminium jack for around 70.00.

    Citroën Berlingo

    That would have resulted in a very long ride to Paris .Life is not always the way you planed it, I am not a fan of the potential gas station drive off . Another benefit is that you are sure to get it into park before you step out.

    It will be interesting to see how it plays. Chrysler tried to sell the push button shifter for a number years here. I Still want a Steering column lock with a Key . I hope it is well put together . If you ever get it up on a lift Take some pictures.

    spark plug suggestions

    I check and change the plugs on a time basis. The Platinum plugs tend to not miss fire for a long time. Pulling the plugs to make sure they do not corrode into the head is my real reason for pulling them out. While they are out I put in new ones .

    I think that is reasonable. If you get the LWB does the slide door get longer like the TC or is it the same size as the SWB?

    2015 TC transmission fluid change

    Here is another opinion of no merit , I have changed mine 3 times at 25000 intervals . the out going fluid has looked the same each time. I used Mercon fluid , Valvoline trans Max and this last one was Triax fluid I will report back on the Triax in 18000 miles

    What is the Hp rating of the engine you chose? What is the trailer tow rating? Are you inclined to replace Your TC with one of these?

    Good photo, glad you were not rear ended by a texting driver. I have done lots of public street service over the years , including a clutch job on a VW Square Back in front of a pizza parlour.

    2015 TC transmission fluid change

    For the most part that is true , I will see a slight rise when I get into the hilly highways around Vermont when the converter is working harder.

    2015 TC transmission fluid change

    The Scan tool I use gives Real time data on the Fluid temp. I have checked the fluid temp on all the Vehicles in my fleet. The TC is at the top for temp. It does not seem to run much hotter even when I am towing a 1500 lb trailer. 10000 miles into the 3rd fluid change . It will be interesting to see how the Triax fluid holds up. The shift quality remains good.
  13. Looks very interesting let us know how it works. 39.97 for that is not outrageous.

    You can down load a copy , I would think you could buy a hard copy from Ford.
  15. Is your TC a wagon or van? The side trim would definitely let water into the doors, Check the drains at the bottom of the door.

    Looks interesting, i suspect Citroen has let the hypo pneumatic suspension go. If is does not have swing back doors I am out. Keep us posted if you get a test drive.

    Tire size settings in Forscan

    The factory setting are limited because too large a change will mess with the emission calculations. Ford Motor does not want to get into that.
  18. If you are going down a long hill with the brakes applied does the noise repeat at a certain rate or is it once per brake application ?

    Spare set of tires wanted on the West coast

    A quandary how new are they,when will you get back to Wisconsin, how much to ship. If you wait long enough the winters will turn into summers and then you can buy new winters.

    Van won’t start

    Have you jumped the starter to see if the engine turns over? Check all the grounds first.

    Tire size settings in Forscan

    Very good information Thanks.
  23. Does your engine have a oil pressure gauge or light? If a light, does that come on? Check the Sender wire on the engine oil pressure sender it could be involved?
  24. Looks very Nice!
