After I swapped her blown motor and got the car running perfect I am now chasing all the high milage wear and tear items every other weekend. When these things run good they are really not bad to drive at all.
Yes, I warrantied it through Autozone and the second one is still working. I'm sure a genuine Ford unit would be a better choice if it's not too much money.

Glad to see the issue is at least solved.

I was once having this issue. After a few weeks of dealing with this I decided to try and figure out what it was. Turns out, I put a part back on wrong.

See that little butterfly flap/door? I put it in upside down, or was it backwards... Who knows, I corrected its position and no more problems.
Issue was the door was getting caught on the wall and not closing all the way.
