RE: Tire pressure gauge

For vehicles with TPMS sensors, if the light blinks or is on and the pressure is verified good, the sensor is faulty or has a bad battery. My wife's car currently has this problem, the light will randomly come on for a couple days and then go off. Each time it does, I check and the pressures are good. Tires were recently replaced, so I will be returning for a new sensor when I have time. For cars like my Mazda3 that use the wheel speed sensors, there is usually a button on the dash somewhere to "zero" the calibration when you have refilled the tire.

RE: Atwood Water heater trouble

I had this same problem with my gas only Atwood water heater. If a new probe did not fix the no spark condition, then the only thing that can be done is replace the control board since it is the LRU (Lowest Replaceable Unit). If you can't get it replaced under warranty, you can use a board made by a third party company called "Dinosaur" It has been several years, but when I had to replace mine, the Dinosaur universal water heater board was about half the cost of an Atwood board and works just as well. The Dinosaur board was around $100. Even if under waranty, if it means your time and gas to hook it up, take it to the dealer, leave it for who knows how long, go pick it up, it may be worth your expense and agrevation to just do it yourself. There were several small things on my trailer I just fixed myself rather than trying to get warrantied at the dealer. Of note, the screw holes are in slightly different locations so be carefull. I managed to put one through the aluminum tank when mounting it! I then had to pull it all apart and take the tank to a friend to weld it.

RE: Ford V-10 Techs Needed, Diagnos My Erratic Coolant Temp

Most likely causes have been addressed already, I just want to add that locking into a lower gear and crusing the hill at a higher rpm like you did is the BEST thing you can do in that situation. The higher rpm circulates coolant faster, runs the fan faster, and keeps the engine in the fat part of the powerband. Locking in 3rd keeps the trans from hunting and has a better chance of keeping the torque converter locked. The modular Ford engines are all overhead cam and designed to run. I have pulled numerous long grades here in CA including Towne pass East in Death Valley from Stovepipe Wells at sea level to the summit at 4955ft in around 16.5miles. Average grade is 5.6 percent with a max around 9 percent, but once you start is one loooooong pull! Once the Expy downshifts I manually select the gear to hold it as long as necessary, or I will sometimes manually downshift before the computer wants to. If I downshift I always lift off the throttle for the shift.

RE: Hwy 50, the lonely one, Nevada

If you are into dinosaurs and fossils, Berlin-Ichthyosaur state park is off 50 (though some distance) and was interesting the many years ago I visited.
