    1999 Mystique V6-2540 2.5L
  1. I need to remove the Condenser and need a advice on disconnecting the refrigerant lines. Haynes mentions using the Ford Service Tool 34-001. What are the work-arounds or suggestion of tool and procedure to remove and replace the lines into the condenser. I had a mishap and sheered the lower refrigerant line at the condenser. Plan is to remove the condenser, attempt to remove the stub, Reinstall and replace damaged line... Houston in the Summer without A/C is not fun.
  2. Turns out the Water Pump belt Disintegrated, coolant overheated, and weakened/melted the plastic radiator, causing a failure. Have it all back together, now troubleshooting why the fans are not coming on. I believe I have narrowed it down to the resistor, which should be here in a couple days. PS: I Strongly Dislike the Spring type hose clamps. Even with the proper tools, they can be Difficult.
  3. It is not a hose that is leaking. Steam was Definitely coming from the center of what to me look like nozzles but may be studs for attachments. I can put a probe down the center of the diver side at least 8", while the other side approximately an inch. Engine Oil and Transmission fluids look as expected.
  4. 1999 Mystique, V6, 150,00 Miles. Driving 70, noticed what I thought was white smoke in mirror, immediately exited freeway when engine cut off, and realized it was steam from the under the hood. Once I opened the hood, what would be best described as steam and a black/grey foam was spewing from the left (driver) side port on top of the radiator. A little foam and a lot of steam for the next 15 minutes. Level & color in the coolant reservoir tank are the same as when check recently. Oil level / color are good. No other areas of leakage. Thoughts / Suggestions on what might have caused this issue? Are the 2 nozzles on top of radiator designed to be pressure relief valves? (only steam from diver side port). I figure need to replace radiator, hoses, thermostat, water pump, transmission cooler lines. Anything else I should replace, look at, or be concerned about? .
  5. I have check the Fusible links in the Distribution Block under the hood with a meter. I checked the wiring on the back of the distribution block for loose / burned wiring. The insulation on all the wiring around the distribution block and around / under the battery appear to be in good condition. All fuses in both fuse boxes and both Diodes check out OK. No Codes are registering. Next step, I guess, is to find a wiring diagram of the cabin fuse block? Still puzzled why Fuses 29, 31, 33, & 35 have no power on the (+) side of the fuse block (lower bank of passenger compartment fuse panel). Beside the above listed electrical issues, I also noticed the PAT light in the center of the dash no longer flashes like it did before these issues arose.
  6. Thanks Aussie Ford On the Lockout: I do have to have to apply the brakes to move out ouf park. Its When I turn the car off, I can remove the key while in any gear. I have not looked into the delay timer. Any suggestion on what/how to check? The electic locks do work, just not using the remote. With a meter, I have have physically check all the fuses in the Power Distribution Box (under hood) and Passenger Compartment Fuse Panel. Fuses 29, 31, 33, & 35 have no power on the (+) side of the fuse block (lower bank of passenger compartment fuse panel. PS are you a Fan of Aussie Floyd? Caught their show in Houston Last Year. Great Show
  7. I have a 99 Mystique. After I replaced the Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor the first time I started the car the radio, dome light, remote mirrors, and wireless remote stopped working. Additionally I have a noise (clank) from the gear shift when applying the brakes and I am able to remove the key regardless of gear selector position (ie. while in drive). I have have physically check all the fuses with a meter Power in the Power Distribution Box (under hood) and Passenger Compartment Fuse Panel. Fuses 29, 31, 33, & 35 have no power on the (+) side of the fuse block (lower bank of passenger compartment fuse panel. Any Idea? I have looked over previous posts and have found issues with a wiring recall but that appears to be associated with earlier models.
