Re: 4.0 i6 .v.s. 4.7 v8

I have a 4.7 that has 295,000 original miles. You can't say the 4.7 is a bad engine. It has been abused also from towing a bass boat most of the year. Very reliable.

Re: Help! A/C doesn't work.

Hello and thanks for the reply. It's blowing cool now, and I'll check the compressor when it stops blowing cool. I have the manual climate control.

Okay. I will try to do that later. It doesn't necessarily seem to get louder with speed and it's odd that it is louder when turning right or straight, rather than left. Any other ideas?
