To aid in engine compartment ventilation, the model was given a conventional grille, styled similar to the F series. Can someone point me to some resources or give a few pointers on what to look for besides newest year and lowest milage? Ford is going , with one major exception—the Mustang—and what an exception it will be, especially in the form of the coming.
Module problems as well as pickup problems are often caused by loose, broken or corroded wiring terminals and connectors.
