What gear oil is recommended for 2005 lincoln aviator
I used SFR (Superior Friction Reduction) with 80w90 gear oil in a Ford differential and experienced an increase in MPG. Mine never made noise but I am in favor of the friction conditioning fluid with the gear oil. I ran that car for 270k miles and the rear axle was as quiet as new.

Replaced rear pads and shoes
you can try to bleed the brakes at all the calipers several times until the fluid is clean coming out the bleeder screws.it sounds like when you pushed the pistons back into the calipers you pushed dirt back through the system and has lodged in the abs hydraulic unit causing the light to come on.you say the abs light is still on does this mean it was on before you replaced the brakes.if so then you had a code in the abs controller that should have been checked before and repaired.when the abs sets code it automatically shuts down the traction control and all wheel drive because of the abs light being on.

How to install shifter Lincoln aviator
If your doing it yourself, you are saving a lot of money. You need a manual to do it. You have to remove the console and other pieces close to it. There are hidden screws and bolts to remove. An extra $30 is money well spent. Plus the manual will help with future repairs. You can get them at parts stores.

2005 lincoln aviator on fifth battery in nine years. Why?
In my Lincoln L/S, the first one lasted 3 1/2 years & was done under warranty
Second one lasted 5 years
Now that one failed two weeks ago at 20 months
In my case the battery is in the trunk & you can't find a battery with
a vent for that car & ford batteries are on odd size, just for their
design or group size,go figure
The Motorcraft Max is free for 3 years & pro rated for 100 months,
so not a bad deal.
IF you have a big enough battery tray & a basic looking battery,
try the NAPA Legend Batt 8465 750 CCA 65 BCI (group size)
They are from East Penn MFG in Penn & plants in other states & their own brand is DEKA in the private parts stores
What I like is that there are no caps on top & no leaking, just like
the old AC Delco I used for 40 years & got 7 to 9 years out of them
I have had a Napa in my 30 year old blazer for two year so far
The question,well I think it is part battery & part the load the electronics puts on the batteries
When I open the trunk & have only the trunk light on & with a
new or old battery, I only get 12.3 volts
I get the same thing on my scan tool data when I turn off the car
& then put the key on,yet all data is good KOEO or Engine Running.
