I overfilled the AC system in my car...the pressure is too high and i have to drain some fluid. Til then, the AC doesn't work b/c it can't fool the freon. fml lol.

Need to do this after work. DO NOT like driving my car when its this damn hot.
dont forget it needs a new condenser(i think thats what i told you) becuase its leaking. hopefully you dont need a new ac line somewhere from the blockage.

I had 2 Foci both start engine fires due to factory anomalies.

Only thing that saved the car from burning to the ground and being completely repairable was the hood liner both times.

The 2nd time i was on the highway in my SVTF and if i hadnt smelled that liner material burning i would have never pulled over and could have been a much larger problem if it had found an ignition source(fuel/ vapor) while in motion. It literally saved my life.

The plugs melt and it drops over the fire to keep oxygen out and stop it from spreading.

Weirdly enough most things on your car are there for a reason. "Cleaning" things up can cause serious problems.

Its a Focus, nobody needs see under the hood anyway, nobody cares. lol

Leave it on.

The firewall blanket is really just sound insulation and disgusting, so pull that. Tug hard enough and you wont need to remove anything. Just use an air hose to spray the bay out so no fibers lay up on the flexpipe/cat.

No it doesn't. It's not leaking. I checked. Your mechanic is wrong. Its never leaked before, after filling, or anytime now. Not a drop.

If he confused the small oil stain on the oil pan from that leak with a freon leak, he is also wrong. There is no leak for the system. There is no blockage. And a "leak" DOES NOT cause the pressure to increase, it drops. It's a closed system, Scott, so when there is a hole somewhere, pressure drops. It's basic physics. Your mechanic was talking out of his ass to get like $1,000 in repairs from me. I'm not stupid lol.

Saw a '05-'07 Focus sedan, possibly an ST with SAP.

It was CD Silver on Enkei wheels, anthracite/polished lip. Lots of..."mods". Dark tint.

HUGE Livernois windshield banner and some sort of exhaust.

Anyone?
