How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a 2006 Ford F150 pickup truck. A while ago you answered my question about the fuel gauge sticking. I'm now having the same problem. If I rock the truck and put it back into park, then the gauge works. If I am correct, you said this was a result of too much sulfur in the gas and there is an additive that can used to resolve the problem. I can't remember what additive to use. Can you help me out?

How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’91 Lincoln Town Car with the 4.6-liter V8. While I was driving home the other day the accelerator seemed to slip past its normal position a little too far. From then on, it accelerates very slowly and will not kick into overdrive when the accelerator is depressed all the way to the floor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
