    Fusion Trans Recall

    I heard there is a Fusion recall for vehicles from 2013-2016 with the transmission. It covers about 250,000 Fusions! Is it a computer issue of more intensive. We have a 2013 Fusion with well over 130,000 miles and still going strong!

    Rangers Without Parts To Ship?

    Is it true that they are currently parking Rangers for lack of various parts....primarily a shortage of steering wheels?

    Cmax Oil Change

    I've been getting my Cmax Oil changes completed at the dealer and really didn't notice the 'shop 'supplies' charge for $2.10! I was told the breakdown of charges were $5.33 for oil filter (FL-910S) ...$25.20 for the 0W20 oil ....labor $15.02....and the $2.10 for 'shop supplies' (towels or rags to wipe the installers hands! I never heard of that one before! I also noticed how I've been changing my oil every 4000-5000 miles. I decided to read more about the required interval on changing Cmax Hybrid oil. Surprised to discover I can have my oil changed every 7500-10000 miles under normal driving conditions!

    Cmax Oil Change

    I have Michelin tires and agree with everything you said about the wear. However, I clearly noticed the edges of the tires wearing while at 38 PSI for the past 9,000 miles (including a tire rotation). Now, at the higher PSI I will assume I can wear the center of the tire more than the edges which might extend its over life ,since its more of a balanced wear. ( I've definitely increased my MPG with the increased PSI. The Cmax is a heavy vehicle...and I love her!)

    Cmax Oil Change

    After reading your advice I inflated my CMax tire pressure from 38 PSI to 45 PSI. The ride and gas mileage is noticeably better. Thanks for the tip!

    Die Cast Model 2019 Rangers

    FYI...just talked to Kindra in sales and she will keep an eye on its availability. She said check back in a couple weeks and should have more information on the timing. I like the 1/24th scale....nice size!

    Die Cast Model 2019 Rangers

    I'm not sure on the timing, but I found this information that might be helpful.you https://www.3000toys.com/mobi/detail.aspx?sku=MAISTO31521R
  10. After Brad won the race at Martinsville, I noticed a Bud beer can possibly thrown on the track! It reminded me of the idiots that threw cans at Joey Logano after Kenseth crashed him a few years ago. None of the commentators mentioned it when Brad drove over the blue can after the victory! Did anyone notice it? Beer cans on racetracks are dangerous and violent fans should be held responsible!

    Brad Was Dominant/But What About Bud

    To confirm my concerns with what happened to Brad at Martinsville.....please read this article.... https://jalopnik.com/someone-chucked-a-drink-at-daniel-suarez-after-nascar-r-1833545374
  12. I recall a few years ago when there were a series of F150 tailgate thefts in my neighborhood ! I was wondering if it is still easy to steal F150 tailgates or did Ford resolve the problem?

    Do F150 Tailgates Have Locks

    Great to hear that....and I assume that's not an option package!

    Brad Was Dominant/But What About Bud

    I watched NASCAR Hub last night and they replayed the incident. It was thrown and bounced 3-4 ft off the pavement. The Blueish can rolled back and Brad turned around and drove over it with his left front tire while fluid/foam came out. Water or beer....it's not right!

    Cmax Oil Change

    What do you set your tire pressure at? I'm set by the dealer recommended at 38 PSI!

    Cmax Oil Change

    It's was $50 and didn't include the tire rotation. It's called Quik Lane here in Wisconsin! Just hybrid oil and filter.....any rotation or maintenance check is extra! I'm definitely going to extend the intervals longer than 5000 miles, since I'm not pulling my trailers or anything other than normal driving! It's a great car!!

    Rangers Without Parts To Ship?

    It came from a retiree who was called back to help with the launch team! He mentioned it to another guy.....who told another guy....etc...! Well, at least I went to the source....and thanks for the information! Meow!!!

    Rangers Without Parts To Ship?

    So, maybe this strike is affecting the Ranger steering wheels....since I'm told they are parking every vehicle?
  20. I wonder what everyone thinks about Johnson winning the clash that only 3 cars survived the damage! According to Johnson, he said: "I'm not sure what caused Menard's car to WOBBLE...... " I have a good idea who caused the wreck...along with Darrel Waltrip.....however, I noticed Jeffrey Gordon (Rick's adopted son) repeating that Menard clearly came down which collected the Johnson and created the crash! .
  21. I can't access the Ford Performance site. It asks me to sign up.....even though I'm already signed in and able to access the other sites!

    Daytona Twin 150's

    Awesome move with the help of Blaney! Brad's penalty was a disappointment. I was hoping for an interview with Kyle Busch after his "contact" with Johnson! Associated Press: "Tell him I don't want to hear it. Tell him to use his eyeballs. That's twice in two races he's done the same thing," Busch said, using expletives to note that Johnson also caused a 16-car accident Sunday.

    Congratulations to Ford and Joey

    I'm just reflecting on a persistent issue about Martin Truex that bothers me somewhat. I watched the replay of the Homestead race and the pre race interviews with the various drivers. When they interviewed Truex, he clearly stated the #22 was his target. This was weeks after his childish threats when Joey out-raced him to the finish at Martinsville and his infamous thumbs down and bellowing he's going to make sure Logano doesn't win the championship! Adding to all his negative attacks, I noticed during the actual race when there were about 60 laps remaining.....Joey and Truex were racing almost evenly on the backstretch, when Truex suddenly moves up and into Joey's left rear quarter panel (a common Kyle Busch tactic). Joey came on the radio telling his guys he was hit and to check for serious damage. At that point they replayed the hit ,which obviously appeared as deliberate and even Dale Jr commented by saying he "didn't understand" that move! Okay....the season is over and us Ford guys are happy. I'm still pondering why did Truex carry such animosity against Joey......claiming he's the target.....he will make sure Joey doesn't win.....the late hit on the back stretch.....and finally refusing to congratulate Joey after the race! It must be deeply personal....since the Martinsville race still left him with plenty of points to make the finals. I hope he moves on from this! It's not healthy! Sorry, I'm just reflecting....
