    F150 speedometer problems

    Well I fixed it. Since I was going to replace it anyway I decided to put my redneck engineering degree to use. I found the smallest drill bit I have and drilled through the plastic right in line with the 0 MPH mark. The idea was to barely sink the drill bit into the speedometer face and break it...

    Dash cams

    I have texting V1 in my vehicles and I like it. You can get them for around $50 now.

    1969 Olds 442

    Thanks for the replies but I’m fairly certain that car already sold. Looking back through that dealers inventory, they have two listings for that same car and the other one says sold. The search continues. I found this 68 Lemans today. It’s only a 2 barrel 350 but I don’t think he’ll mind and...

    1969 Olds 442

    I did ask for some engine bay and trunk pictures in the email I sent. He does like 442’s and I think the auto will be easier on him because he’s almost 70 and going through radiation treatments at the moment. He can afford to freshen it up and I hope to help him work on it also. I’ll have to...

    1969 Olds 442

    I’ve been kicking around the idea of buying my dad a car and I stumbled across this one today. I don’t know a whole lot about classic cars in general so I was hoping somebody could look at it and let me know if there was something glaringly obvious wrong with it. Anything specific I should look...

    Pretty sure that blue C8 was a journalist on a test drive.

    F150 speedometer problems

    I found some on eBay for $99. Guess I need to see how much it would be to program I though.

    F150 speedometer problems

    Just wanted to give an update on this. Finally had time to take it to the dealer. They said they did the battery monitor system reset and it did not fix the issue. Said my instrument cluster was bad and it would be about $1000 to replace it.

    New Explorer, purchase Extended Service plan?

    6 year/60,000 mile $0 deductible IIRC don’t have the paperwork with me. Bumper to bumper, same as the factory warranty.

    New Explorer, purchase Extended Service plan?

    I just got a new 2020 and bought the extended warranty for around $1500 I believe. Talked them down from $2200. The 2020’s have issues with the transmission so it was a no brainer for me. Not sure if they fixed it for 21’s or not.

    Will do. Thank you and @blksvtcobra01 for the help. Never would have thought it was the battery.
