    2.7L oil pan leaks

    Does anyone have a copy of the TSB?
  2. My company uses Tacomas as fleet vehicles. They are expensive and it requires us to get the SR5 to get the tow package. We are already reviewing if a Ranger will work because of our CPA dollars from Ford. I priced a 4x2 XL with tow package and the MSRP alone is about $2k less than we pay today for Tacomas and I would think our CPA dollars will be about $3000...and we usually get that off invoice. We look to save about $5-6K. However, we do sell Tacomas with 300K miles at $7500...not sure if we can do that with Rangers. We'll see. As a side note...I am currently in a Fusion Titanium and priced a XLT Sport Ranger to replace it...hate the ground clearance of the Fusion when driving interstate highways. Too many obstacles to run over.
  3. I'm debating with my dealer and would like someone to run a Smart VINCENT for a truck I am wanting to buy: VIN: 1FTEXICP9GKF96885 Zip Code: 78620 Thank you.
  4. Can anyone tell me what the disclaimers are for this incentive? Trying to figure out if any Ford vehicle owned works with this or just if you own an F-series. Thanks.
  5. Has anyone figured out where to get window sticker? I need to know what the MSRP of my car was when I bought it for my company's mileage reimbursement plan and I don't have the window sticker or the MSRP. Any help is appreciated.

    2013 Ford Escape Recalled for 7th Time

    I read the supplement to the recall and it appears to be some type of water diversion valve, shielding and new oil dipstick. There are attachments to explain installation that I have not seen, but the supplement says it is a complex repair. 5 hours allotted by Ford, which probably really means 8. They will pay for 2 days rental.

    Metal "popping" sound when starting

    I don't think it is a TSB, I think it is just a Special Service Message.

    Metal "popping" sound when starting

    RESOLVED.... Some 2013 Escape vehicles built on or before 5/6/2013 may exhibit a single pop-type noise from the exhaust system when starting the engine after vehicle is parked for several hours. Noise typically occurs within 1-3 seconds after engine starts. This may be due to a baffle in the front muffler assembly. If a vehicle comes in for this condition, let it sit for a minimum of 4 hours. Start the vehicle with the driver's door open. If the vehicle exhibits the pop noise from the exhaust, replace the front muffler assembly.
