    Dec 2015 - took to Lincoln dealer about and hr. away for evaluation. Was determined by them for $152 that the DCCV and Aux Circulating pump needed replacing for $1600. I wasn't going to spend that then put into storage.

    Two weeks later no A/c. Blows extreme heat when air on. Took back to place that removed the gasses. A fuse had blown( front distribution box- position#1- A/C clutch) Replaced it. Had A/C again
    Two days later blown again - took back to service centre again, he tested it and said he thought compressor magnetic field were causing fuse to blow. Recommended a local Auto Electric shop, Which I have used before, for other vehicles.
    Sept- 2015, took to the Auto Electric shop- owner hooked it up but could only get fuse to blow once. The Weather had become too cool to get the A/C to go on and he couldn't get it in the shop due to other commitments. But he did notice that there was little to no heat! as well.

    no A/c for one yr , told by Lincoln dealer compressor not working.
    July 2014 - had compressor installed -still no A/c
    Aug 2014 - took to two separate service centres, was told it was the Expansion valve. I didn't have $1000+ and put into storage for the winter.
    May 2015 - Had Expansion valve replaced - A/c worked Yea!, Just so you know we don't use car often, about once a week or so.

    On second thought ... I'm going to keep this car so the whole manual would be great. Do you recall where you purchased your DVD from?

    Hi Shorod, on 02/06/2007 you responded to a thread requesting help to diagnose the cause of P0171 and P0174 codes on a 2000 Ford Duratec Engine. You told the individual to send you a private message and you would send a PDF file containing the Troubleshooting Procedures for diagnosing aforementioned codes. If you still have those procedures I would greatly appreciate it if you would send them to Also, I did a smoke test on the engine and the only smoke which escaped came from the vents on the underside of the EGR valve. Is this normal? Does it mean the EGR valve is bad. Thanks for your help.
