Definitions

Could some of you guys that have been here a while compile a list of definitions, please.
Some/most of you guys have alot of info, but some of us don't.
So, could we put together a list of things that maybe we all should know, but maybe we don't????
I'll start with the ones I know...
OTIS-Overhead Temperature Information System

Aight, that's it for me....

All I'm saying is that sometime the acronyms can be a bit confusing.
If this is a repost, please point my dumbA$s in the right direction.
Thank You!

Be the Change you want to See!
95 Trep 244,??? and counting.

IMO - I got no clue but heres my thoughts. I think noone really knows.

I hear that SE, ES, and SXT really mean nothing. Just some term that the factory used when making the cars. What do I know I got 51 post count lol.

SE - Standard Edition (Special Edition is what most say not sure why lol)
ES - Extra Stuff (Euro Sport is what most say)
R/T - Road Track
SXT - nothing (Same EXact Thing? lol)

well most SE's came with the 2.7 motor, so its not Sport edition.

tps on throttle body means throttle position sensor

tps in tire means tire pressure sensor.
