Lemon law encourages Fisker to buy Karma back

Posted by DavidDavis in DavidDavis' Blog, 15 October 2012 - - - - - - · 8,215 views

Fisker Automotive has been dealt another PR blow, as a wily lawyer has used a lemon suit to force the business to buy a Karma sedan back from a customer. Lemon laws are among the many consumer protection laws, which force car makers to buy a vehicle back if they've made a dud. Figure out...

Cougar's first cough

Posted by spridget in Spridget's Blog, 04 March 2012 - - - - - - · 3,745 views

A couple weeks ago the g/f and I took a vacation to Mexico. For the first time since the Cougar's resurrection, the car sat for two weeks. I've been driving it nearly every day, and never a check engine light in almost 25,000 miles. My g/f drove the Cougar to work, and guess what. CEL comes on.

I check the codes, one for IMRC stuck open, another...

Dynos....

I recently looked around on YouTube and Facebook and found 2 dyno videos of my car I hadn't previously seen. One was by Nick (Ov3n) on NECO taken at CougarFest last year and my tuner Smokey's Dyno.

Enjoy both...

Focus Levelling Jack Points

Posted by rac74 in rac74's Blog, 20 August 2011 - - - - - - · 2,809 views

Since the Contour is back up and running reliably it's time to get back to bigger and better things.

I revised the way I'm going to do this (yet again) and will not be using a modular but instead dedicated fixture jig for the car (more expedient). The chassis will be supported at four points on levelling jacks. Once I have the roll cage in the...

Hottie @ the Italian Car Show

Couple weeks ago we went down to the Inner Harbor to see the cars. She's the ultimate charmer... guys want her to sit in their Ferarris. This year there were no Dino 246, but if I were a rich guy, I'd buy a Mondial before I bought a Dino 246.

SORC

Well not exactly the race I had hoped for, but not all bad either. It started at Hastings Motorsports Park (MPH) on Wednesday. I unloaded the car, took a warm up lap then on my first full RPM up shift to 3rd the clutch went to the floor. Once I got back into the pits I discovered the fitting which holds the fluid line to the slave cylinder (I'm sure it...

I think I will pop it off later. I think there is nothing behind that. Maybe just glued on it?! I got other problems first.
thanks all

I popped it off. There is wire going to it, but it is?! I haven't seen it on. Maybe some fake alarm? But it has...


Dropped off the Cougar for some additional improvements

Well I finally decided to move on to the 3L Intake conversion. I have a few reasons why. For one, I wanted a little more low-mid range torque to it. Then, I also wanted to have a Cold Air intake installed because the heat soak from the HAI was getting on my nerves. I didn't want to go through another summer with heat soaking issues. This will allow me...

Well, repairing my contour has been quite the experience. Just wanted to check the shift cable bushing but in came a nice domino effect of wtf moments. Refer to my thread in the Under The Hood section of the forum for the basic back story. http://www.fordconto...showtopic=12928

October 20.
I ran into a spot where I needed to design and build up the front cabin shell. The dash and wipers interfere, plus I need to define where the rad hoses go. I'm out of resin and hardener, and since there's no income, I've decided to make busy on getting new work before incurring hobby costs. There's some other areas I will...

Not sure how long my mother-in-law is going to be around, with cancer and all. Its not getting better that's for sure. So we are packing up the van with the kids and all sort of other crap and driving straight through from Naples to a small town about 1 hour west of Minneapolis.

28 HOURS BABY! It can be done. No stops for sleep. I'm sure...

Car won't start. Took to local garage and they couldn't figure out. Sent to Ford dealer, they say part needed is no longer made. Something to do with fuel pump and alarm. Car only has 15,000 miles. Any thoughts, anyone?

well I found out that the bolts for the waste gate came loose again. But I am not sure that is where the leak is from. All I know is that if I look straight up at all the pipe from under the car the exhaust is coming straight down. So I think I will be pulling the turbo and wastegate again tomorrow to re-seal everything. Car sounds pretty good, the exhaust...
