    The line going from the brake booster to the pump seems to be the line that is broken

    Just out of curiosity is there a way for Ford to program my PATS system, without the car being there. Like can i bring the ECU, cluster, ignition etc and they would be able to program it? The cluster and ECU are from the same car but the ignition and key are out of my v6.
    I really don't want to tow the car there and i want to be the first one to start the car lol

    You'll need a new ignition with keys and you program them yourself takes 45 I can walk you through it

    Currently driving with a blown head gasket and am WAYyyyyyy overdue for an oil change, was putting it off since i don't want to pay for oil than end up ripping the motor out a week after

    Turning into a nightmare pulling this engine it seems the starter is getting stuck on the motor mount. I disconnected the starter but can't get it out of the small space between the frame and trans

    Haha the wires are all connected, Im going to make sure the car runs before i wrap up the harness, since there is a lot of fabricated wiring and i don't trust my wiring skills
