    Hi, I'm going to remove & replace inner & outer tie rod ends on a 1994 Lincoln Continental Executive. Do you know if the inner tie rod end nut, has a lock pin, or is the end of the nut indented to keep it from coming lose ? I ask because I'm totally disabled & have trouble with back pain crawling around under a car. I'm trying to asses the time it will take me by the difficulty of removing the inner tie rod end on passanger side, which is hard to get at because of exhaust in the way ( 3.8 V6 ) I've seen some u-tube videos on changing them, but nothing specific to a 94 Lincoln Continental. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have a 2011 Jeep Liberty that is having weird electrical problems. Three times in the last six weeks, the all the lights (dashboard, headlights, etc) have gone out while the car was running. The first two times, it happened when I was driving slow in a parking lot or well lit street. The last time, it was when driving at about 55-60 on a dark rural road. Everything else works, the car didn't stall and the power steering and brakes were fine (luckily). I had a mechanic look at it and he didn't get any codes or see anything corroded or bad connections. The two Jeep dealerships I talked to said they couldn't know what was wrong unless I brought it in while it was happening. I love this car and don't feel safe driving it. I'm almost to the point of getting rid of it. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for quick response. I remember that Edmunds used to have best lease deals of the month indexed by zip code, which was a great way to find deals quickly. That was pretty useful as it was one stop shopping.

    Several years ago you commented on Frantz Oil Filters, specifically media migrating into the oil system. I can say that has never happened to a Frantz user in all their history since the 1950's. You only need to look at the design. I started using a Frantz Oil Filter on my 1963 Studebaker Avanti back in 1965 when it had 14,000 miles on it. The Frantz is a bypass unit which works along with your full flow filter. The full flow will take out big chunks, the Frantz will filter out the finest materials, down to 1 micron in size. Frantz is still in business and now sells oil filters for around $200.00, and you can buy special filters from them if your are afraid of migration. I used toilet paper and changed the cartridge every 2000 miles, adding a quart of oil for the quart that the Frantz used. I changed my oil every 30,000 to 40,000 miles (didn't need to) and he oil was always as clean as the day it came out of the can. It works - or Frantz would be out of business.
