HELP WITH HEATER CORE AND EXPANSION VALVE REPLACEMENT

2000 Lincoln LS • 139,000 miles

Still needing help with Heater core and expansion valve replacement. Did not get email last year about this (Aug 10 2011) Looked in Reg mail and Junk.

Would you please send any info on this you have. Want to fix it this week, once and for all!

I did donate $10 last year ; -)
Thank you!
