    Intermittent Brake Fail

    By your description it sounds like false ABS activation from a failed sensor ring (mainly the rear hub sensor ring cracks and causes sporadic ABS issues). If you have a scan tool it's easy to see what's going on. If not, I would suggest removing the rear 2 rotors and looking at the tone ring (it looks like a toothed gear around the back of the wheel hub). I can help with pics if you have any questions. -Dominic

    Engine distribution box removal??

    Sounds about right. I would just make double sure that the positive cables are well insulated to prevent any shorts and possible fire. -Dominic

    Engine distribution box removal??

    The box is held down with one 8mm bolt at the back and it has 2 tabs that slide into slots in the battery bracket. The DB has a harness coming out of it that may need to be pulled out for access. Normally, you can service the box without removing it entirely along as the battery is removed giving you space to get it free. -Dominic

    Front sway bar bushing replacement

    I think clearance is going to be your biggest issue getting to the 4 mount to subframe bolts. I normally service them when I drop the subframe, however there may be enough room to slide a 13mm in there to get the bolts loose. It won't be an easy job though with the firewall right up against the lower bolts. -Dominic

    shifter bezel on full center console

    Unfortunately a parts yard (Pull-A-Part) or similar will be your best bet. Most parts have been obsoleted by Ford almost 10 years ago on that model. -Dominic

    No spark need help.

    Crank sensor wiring can fall apart way up the harness in places you wouldn't normally look. I normally replace the wiring from the connectors on the valve cover all the way to the sensor. Without a scan tool or an oscilloscope you won't be able to see what the sensors are doing aside from the wiring connections. Are you sure the 3 connectors at the valve cover are tight? They have a habit of breaking the locks and the connectors will vibrate apart causing the stalling you describe. Make sure you use two hands and press them very firmly together (sometimes the rubber seal inside will roll causing the connector to bind. It feels all the way together - But in reality it's not. -Dom
