  1. Replaced the starter 2 months ago, hasn't done it since!
  2. Ford Motor Co said Thursday it will recall nearly 1.5 million cars in North America to address a faulty part that could lead to engine stalls. The second-largest U.S. automaker said it is calling back 2012 through 2018 model-year Ford Focus cars with 2.0-liter GDI and 2.0-liter GTDI engines for a malfunctioning canister purge valve. Ford said the valve may become stuck open, creating excessive vacuum in the fuel system could deform the car's plastic fuel tank. That, in turn, could cause a malfunction light, or a fuel gauge could give inaccurate readings. Which in turn could lead to a stall while driving and an inability to restart the vehicle, risking a crash. Ford said it is not aware of any crashes as a result of this condition but said owners should maintain at least a half tank of fuel until the recall is completed.
  3. Reuters The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Thursday it had opened a preliminary investigation into 54,400 Ford Motor Co pickup trucks after receiving five complaints that tailgates had unexpectedly opened while the vehicles were in motion. The agency said the investigation was looking into the issue in 2017 model year F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickup trucks. NHTSA will investigate to determine if the issue poses an unreasonable risk to safety and whether the agency should seek a recall. In October 2017, Ford issued a technical service bulletin addressing the issue, and found water intrusion in the wire harness as the root cause of tailgate problems, NHTSA said. A Ford spokeswoman said the company was cooperating with NHTSA in the investigation.

General Motors is recalling more than 210,000 SUVs and pickup trucks because a faulty brake component could reduce the effectiveness of the rear brakes and increase the risk of a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The GM brake recall affects certain 2018-2019 Chevrolet Equinox SUVs, Impala and Cruze sedans, and Bolt and Volt electric vehicles; GMC Terrain SUVs; Buick Lacrosse and Regal cars; Cadillac XTS SUVs; and 2018 Chevrolet Malibu sedans. NHTSA said that a faulty brake-system component may cause bubbles to form in the brake fluid, which could reduce rear braking performance. GM was informed about the problem by the part supplier ZF, according to a NHTSA filing. It is a problem that has affected Audi and Volkswagen, Dodge and Jeep, and Mercedes-Benz vehicles, a GM spokesman said. https://www.yahoo.com/news/gm-brake-recall-includes-210-000-cars-suvs-185141413.html

    Nut Buddy

    Interesting little tool , but as someone pointed out in the comments, he was on a different nut when he used the tool than when he was using the impact.
  11. Well, it's doing it again. And it doesn't start only when the steering wheel DOESN'T lock. And I wiggle the wires and it'll fire right up. I'm wondering if the wires themselves are falling apart inside the coating ??
  12. Ford is recalling about 550,000 cars and SUVs in North America to fix a gearshift problem that could cause the vehicles to roll away unexpectedly. The recall covers certain 2013 through 2016 Fusion sedans and some 2013 and 2014 Escape small SUVs. Ford says a bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission can fall off. If this happens, the driver could shift into park but the vehicle could be in another gear. That could let the vehicle roll, increasing the risk of injury or crash. The company says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries. Ford is advising owners to use the parking brake. Dealers will replace the shifter bushing at no cost. Owners will be notified by July 30. Parts should be available late this quarter.
  13. Mercedes-Benz and Ford Motor Co. would seem an unlikely couple. But in the American auto market they have used similar strategies to carve out dominant, cash-gushing positions in the industry’s two most lucrative segments: luxury vehicles and large pickup trucks. Both automakers, industry insiders say, have sliced the market so finely with so many different models that few will dare challenge their supremacy. Click Here to read more!
