Sad to hear that your experiences are that MOST/ALL 2005-2007 FRPS fails at around 100K miles. -major bummer for those car owners.
honestly besides that all my issues have been minor/normal wear and tear. from 101k to 158k. The only other mystery issue was alignment caster was off. Replaceing both control arms revealed the cause and fixed. One was OEM worn out other
decent Aftermarket. It is currently parked because I got a 5sp 2.3 and the flex came apart so you get bad exhaust smell when stopped. Maybe my fault to not being more careful when changing motor mounts. Got new vent door cable from junkyard for nothing. Still have to find and assess the fixability of the recirculate door but if you charge the system and don't expect ice cold air on high in 60 seconds in stop and go when the car is 140 and 110 outside it works well. If my driving it gets to literally freezing at the vent after 5 mins of driving on 2-3. even over 100 outside. Also good tint and parking in the shade. New car has great tint so I'm not sure if AC in 04 is better or just tint is huge difference. Also not sure if it has the high throttle shut off for the compressor.
