Went to dealer..... got good news.

Welp this morning I changed my oil. and to my surprise I had tranny fluid dripping from around the tranny. I checked the fluid levels and they were a lil low, but since I have no tranny fluid, and I was going to the dealer anyways, I said screw it, if it blows up on the way - great, finally a new tranny.

ok so i get to the dealer, I tell em all the stuff thats wrtong which is like 2 pages... heres the list:

steering wheel shrinkage - they need the ford rep to look at it
drivers front wheel is begining to corrode - see above
driversside mirror shakeage - ordered a new one.
driverside door lock - ordered a new one
tranny leaking - turns out ALL the bolts were loose, and ready to fall out, I kinda feel bad that they didnt.

truck threw an idle? code so they replaced some idle solenoid or something

soo I ended up taking it to Al marrone ford - D knows them... different dealer than who I was taking it to. Al maroone is actually closer by about 10 minutes and 3 miles. soo oh, and they seemed to be quicker, and more thorough. so the dude said hed call me when the stuff comes in.

I wish the dealers around here had service like that. everything with my trucks was that not covered its wear and tear.

But one thing to keep in mind is keep an eye on the tranny bolts and make sure they stay tight. I have had to keep checking mine because they keep loosening up just enough to leak.

Marrone is ' ok '. They will fix whatever is wrong and submit the bill through Ford to the dealership you purchased the vehical from.

Take your Truck to West Herr out on Camp Rd/RT5. ask to speak with Gerry at the service desk. Tell Him I told you to speak with him. He will take care of you.
