150k people per month are diagnosed with cancer, there have been virtually no cancer screenings over the past 2 1/2 months, on top of creating a backlog of screenings of people. Cancer is one of many other health issues going undiagnosed or being put off which will be killing people for months to come.
The fact very little of this data in reports and papers has been peer reviewed in an actual Good journal says all. Michigan isn’t even publishing the metrics state is using to reopen. Though I’m not sure anyone in the Governors or AG office actually has a clue about anything, I mean today the AG sued went against GM, FCA (and Ford some what) in the fuel economy standards, never mind they are only some of the largest employers in the state and now is launching an investigation into the dam failure when Michigan is part of the lawsuits and has some fault rather than appoint an independent investigation.
This is the beginning of the next lost decade for Michigan. That will impact Ford in that it is already hard to recruit talent here, that will become even harder over the decade.
Hope everyone is well and staying safe.
Since new the truck has an odd chatter (metal to metal squeak) in park or drive at idle and operating temp. The sound is coming from underneath around the engine and trans.
A month ago I goosed it a liitle into traffic. Rev'd to 3k RPM, the tranny caught and lurched hard. As if I rev'd it in neutral then dropped it in drive. This only happened once since new.
Since then, the trans is somewhat spongy upon acceleration. Not bad though. Its drivable and no codes
The stealership (Ford) has always blown me off about the noise and say "they can't duplicate the problem". God I hate that... So finally one day I dropped by and had a mechanic come out and look at it. He FINALLY heard it. I mention the trans issue too.
Just got a call today. Needs a "Front Pump", fuild, filter and a new torque converter. I asked for more clarification on the pump he didn't really know.
He told me not to drive it at all and leave it with them till Friday. I asked why and he said no fluid being pumped and the chatter noise is part of it! I said the chatter has been like that since new and how much damage in 3 years no fluid pumping!!! I suggested a new trans. He said no...
Does the diagnosis match the symptoms? Since its been like this since new, should I push for a new trans?

I didn't know if you are still tracking vehicles... Was wondering if you have visibility on:
I know the the plants only opened last week but wanted to thank you in advance for your help!
Yeah, it makes me laugh when I see people on the news wearing a face mask incorrectly, the nose is out on display......
Sure, the driver is in the car and probably didn’t think about whether he would be snapped.
