Re: ba auto trans

If this is a 4 speed BF, what you're feeling may not be a transmission slipping but downshifting too early from 4th into 2nd, not 3rd. Take it to a Ford dealer and ask them to carry out TSB 18/05 and if this doesn't fix it the transmission will probably have to be opened to inspect for signs of premature wear. As you say it's an 05 model it will still be under warranty, so let them deal with it. cheers

Re: ba auto trans

Sorry mate, but what your dealer told you sounds like a bullshit answer to me. The tyre size/diff ratio can be reset using WDS or IDS and it only takes a couple of minutes. When you have an incorrect parameter for these only the accuracy of your speedo will be affected. These cars were designed to go up to 19' tyres without problems. Again, tell them to do TSB 18/05 AND reset your tire size/axle ratio to the current tyres in your car. Drive it and see if it made any difference. Also, tell them to check for codes and post them here. If all this doesn't fix it you could have a worn/slipping forward clutch. cheers

Hi

It is true that a colder thermostat (or removing the thermostat) will make any EFI car run richer, but in no way are you gonna feel any power increase. All this does is confuse the PCM into thinking the car is still cold when it's in fact at normal operating temp.
So, when the car is cold you won't notice any difference and when it gets hot the PCM will dump excess fuel into the cylinders without letting more air in, so you still won't notice anything except a fuel smell and an awesome fuel bill. Long term dramas: O2 sensors and Catalytic converters fail if the engine is constantly running rich. You also get carbon build up inside the cylinder head, manifolds and throttle body and probably the engine light on.
Up to you, but I wouldn't do it. cheers
