I plan on taking it to the dealership but my friends tell me if it doesn't cause the engine light to come on they will do nothing. Anyone have any ideas?
If you have the time, I would take it to the dealer myself. The least they will do, like they did to me was say "nothings wrong that we found, but we have it on record so if you bring it back again for the same problem then we will have documents on it and might be able to do something about it."
The service manager told me that it the TBS, I think is what he called it, but its prob going bad. He said that when they do detect a prob through the check engine light and codes then it would make it easier for Ford to cover it under the warranty. I guess it makes it easier on their part.
Personally, I think it was a load of crap but I'm going with it right now. My truck is still acting up, so I will prob drop it off again in a month just to inconvience them. And I am the kind of person to pester them until something is done to correct the problem.
Yeah, my truck just started to act up while its in gear the other day, instead of just in park, sounded like somebody with a stuttering problem going down the driveway lol The idle kept jumping from 400 to 1100. I would just pester the dealer like I am doing, eventually they will get tired of seeing me and probably just fix it. Or they will finally find the problem. Doesnt hurt to take it down there if you know what I mean...
