    Fusion Trans Recall

    It’s the shifter cable end. That’s it. Basically there’s a clip that holds the cable to the transmission linkage. If the clip breaks, the cable can come off and the trans won’t engage the gear position you select. That’s it. Nothing major. Just use the parking brake until it’s fixed to be safe.
  5. Crown Victoria never had variable cam timing. They were pretty robust. Not many chain and guide replacement on those. 3v modulars has the issues with tensioners, which led to the upper wear due to lack of oil pressure. Unless it makes a chain rattle at first start up. I wouldn’t worry about it.
  6. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.freep.com/amp/1119773001 I knew this would come to a head at some point. Ford would be better off doing excellent trade in deals for these cars. Give these customers an insane deal to trade back into another ford without DCT. Fusions or escapes or eco sport. Otherwise the only one that wins are the attorneys.
  7. I believe that’s because of the special tools required to repair it. Still even if you replaced it, they didn’t come back shuddering. Most CVT issues I heard of was noise or check trans message.

    Bad Fuel Injector 2019 Ranger

    Actually it should say if we can’t duplicate it, we can’t do anything for it. If it has a driveability issue that can be duplicated, then it should be diagnosable .
  9. I agree. The TCM has continental stamped on it.
  10. I don’t remember the cvt being as bad. Only thing I remember about the cvt was it was heavy, slow, hard to work on and expensive. It could be fixed. My experience is you either had one needing repair before 50k miles or they lasted 150k+. But the price was so high to repair you just junked the car. Of course the aisin 6 speed was the same. If it needed internal repair, you black boxed it but $6k would exceed the value of the car.

    He will perform the tsb first and see what happens.
  12. C&D just wants to sell magazines and ads in their magazine. The ranger may not hit every target but it’s definitely a formidable player. I don’t understand all the talk about how bad the interior is. I see it no worse than it’s competition. I think it’s right in line.

    Any updates on parts?

    NEW 2021 F150

    All I think about when I see the old style is ridiculous tow Mirrors that are always out no matter, “red” driver, with a stack out the bed. Plus a sticker that says “rolling coal” What’s interesting to me is how subjective style is. I think the 97-03 F150 extended cab fx4 with white and grey bottom is still a good looking truck. However, I know tons of people that hated that style.

    They have that dash really covered. I’m hoping it’s going to exceed the interior of the new ram. The Ram is the only other truck I would even remotely consider. Actually, not really. Raptor all day for me. But the Ram is a good looking truck. Good job to them.

    That looks like the top of a laptop screen on his lap.

    Fix the latches company wide! Pay a couple extra bucks for some good parts.

    H13 Headlamp bulbs

    Oh and one more thing. Is the lamp holding moisture? Any condensation in the lamp housing?

    H13 Headlamp bulbs

    Most of the time I find multiple bulb replacements comes from the installer touching the bulb during installation or as in your case a connector issue. The dealer should be able to order a replacement connector for you. I don’t know the number right off, but we have a connector pigtail book with tons of replacement connectors. My recommendation is to replace the connector and bulb. Make sure not to touch the bulb with your fingers. Also a little dielectric grease in the connector terminals wouldn’t hurt. Probably wouldn’t hurt to check the voltage to that lamp with the engine running and check the ground resistance.

    Challenger takes no.2 spot

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.freep.com/amp/3495485002 GM doesn’t understand. You can make the vehicles to show best on paper. But you have to make what people want. It’s all about the market and what people like. Otherwise why would this old low tech heavy vehicle sell so well? I personally like the newest Camaro over the challenger. However, I must be the minority.
  21. The continental is just missing something. I saw a beautiful white black label last week driving. It’s just missing a little something. I think marketing would be a start. The Escalade isn’t that good. Neither is the 300. But they have a social stigma. The continental needs some attention.

    Well that is disappointing.

    I have no doubt it will be fixed. The only concern is time. I understand the frustration with corporate customer service but you have to remember they are a call center. But I do agree. A little sympathy would go a long way

    Means it goes up the chain a little. But chances are it’s been elevated by the dealership already. FYI it’s not uncommon if your truck is out of commission too long, you could get a ESP plan thrown in. I’ve seen it in extreme cases to help alleviate the sting of being without a new vehicle for a while.

    Every push helps. I’m sure the dealer emergency ordered the parts. However, from your description none of the parts depots show them. So that could mean they are a vendor item. Vendor items are hard for the dealer to track or get a real eta. Chances are it will just show up one day. Hopefully soon.
