  • New Website Problem

    Mitch,
    The "FORUMS" tab, far left below the blue VFF header, no longer works for me.
    This started when you had the URL change. Deleting the old and rebooking the link did not fix the problem.
    When I click on it my browser (Foxfire) goes back to https://www.vintagefordforum.com/home instead of a list of forums.
    I no longer have any access to forum links for T, A, EV8, etc.
    VFF does work properly on a newer computer with the Microsoft Edge browser. My OS will not run that browser.

        OK, with FireFox you need to first remove the bookmark, then clear the specific cookie for this site (vintagefordforum.com) by going to Menu-Options-Privacy-History then click "Show Cookies", scroll down to (vintagefordforum.com), then delete it. DO NOT try to open vintagefordforum.com again at this point.

        NEXT you need to clear the Form & Search history AND active logins by going to Menu-History-Clear Recent History... then DEselect everything but Form & Search, Active logins, and Cache in the pop-up box. Delete only those items. Close Firefox. Open Firefox, type https://www.vintagefordforum.com into the address bar and hit enter. Sign in, check "remember me" (only if your own private computer) then click the star to save bookmark. IF this does not work (older version of FireFox) you may need to clear EVERYTHING along with the history. Warning!- This will also erase all previous things you have downloaded, so back up your download folder to a new, different named folder first!

        Now, back to trying to figure out what the Hexx is causing the occasional flashing MIL soft-code "random cyl misfire" during WOT on my '06 V8 Explorer. That engine has the infamous long extension spark plugs that break off when you try to remove them, and they have been in for 90K miles. Ugh. A's are so easy!

          Mike thanks for the great info which I am sure will be very helpful to others..

          if I had your exploder here I would put it on the scanner to see which cylinder is miss firing by using the data stream. they are usually a COP issue coil on plug.
          switch the coil with another cylinder and see if the misfire moves. If so just do the coil...yea the plugs are a bitch.. I have the special removal tool for when they break off...

          I just did a pick up where they all broke off .. it was a 1000.00 tune-up:

            On your Explorer spark plugs we do the BG cleaner to remove the carbon before we try changing the spark plugs.You also can try running double the amount of Seafoam or equivalent in the gas tank.We have the Ford factory IDS computer scanner and it will show you which cylinder is missing while you drive it with the power balance test.The removal tool is a must.

              agree on the de- carbon first,
              we run top end cleaner thru also before attempting the plug removal plunge

              fords better idea

                Dakota Digital ECD-100; conversion of electrical speedometer to mechanical
                by Gary D
                Hi, I have a 1930 Cabriolet with a Borg Warner T5 transmission. I want to use the original Stewart Warner speedometer and am considering buying a Dakota Digital ECD-100 to make the conversion. Any thoughts, experience with this unit ? Any input would be greatly appreciated ! Thank You ! Gary

                Marvel vs Ampco Intake Oilers
                by MikeK
                There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE in operation between the Original patented Marvel INVERSE oilers and the Ampco and other simple knockoffs that feed oil DIRECTLY proportional to engine vacuum. People often confuse the two as similar in function.

                An inverse oiler (Only Marvel oilers) feed less oil when the manifold vacuum is high (cruising, idling) and more when the vacuum is less (accelerating,

                Good Camera, Which one?
                by Terry, NJ
                I have had it! This Kodak camera and the "Easy Share" program has burned me up one time too many. The pictures are good, but this "Easy Share" system is not. I take the pic, then try to load the pic to transfer it to VFF and it's not ready! It's like going to a restaurant as waiting to be served, and waiting, and waiting! I don't know how to get it to accept my pics immediately...

                A different turn signal question
                by Denis4x4
                I have a Signal-Stat 900 that works just fine. My problem is that there is a “buzzer” that you can barely hear even with engine off and the indicator light doesn’t grab my attention. In other words, I’m like the old lady in Florida that drives around with the blinkers on!

                ideas??
