Summary of Complaint

THIS IS A PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION, I HAVE 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE AT DEALERSHIPS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY AND HAVE SEEN A LOT OF CHANGES, I SEE TOO MANY PEOPLE THESE DAYS DRIVING WITH NO HEADLIGHTS ON AT NIGHT, ITS BECAUSE THE INSTRUMENT PANEL LIGHTS COME ON AUTOMATICALLY WHEN THE ENGINE IS STARTED. THEY SEE THEIR INSTRUMENT PANEL LIGHTS ON SO THEY THINK THEIR HEADLIGHTS ARE ON. A SOFTWARE UPDATE ACROSS THE BOARD OF MANUFACTURERS SHOULD BE MADE TO NOT TURN ON INSTRUMENT CLUSTER LIGHTS UNLESS PARKING LIGHTS OR HEADLIGHTS ARE ON, JUST LIKE IT USED TO BE YEARS AGO

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A 2000 FORD F150 4X4 5.4 LITER ENGINE WITH NOW MY SECOND BLOWN OUT SPARK PLUG. I PAID A LOT FOR THE FIRST SPARK PLUG REPAIR. I KNOW THIS IS A FORD DESIGN PROBLEM - IT IS WELL-KNOWN. IS FORD COMPENSATING CONSUMERS FOR "THEIR" PROBLEM? I ONLY HAVE 140,685 MILES ON THIS TRUCK AND DO ALL THE REQUIRED MAINTENANCE MYSELF AND THE SPECIFIED INTERVALS. IF FORD IS NOT STANDING BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT THEN IT IS THE GOVERNMENT'S REPSONSIBILITY TO MAKE THEM. I AM RETIRED AND NOT ABLE TO REPAIR THIS MYSELF. CAN YOU DIRECT ME TO THE RIGHT GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT OR ARE YOU IT? FORD MUST COMPENSATE THE CONSUMER FULLY AND NOT BE ALLOWED TO USE THE CONSUMER AS THE GUINEA PIG AND HAVE US FORK OUT HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS FOR THEIR KNOWN BAD DESIGN. THE DESIGN ISSUE WITH THE BLOWN OUT SPARK PLUG IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH THREADS IN TO THE HEAD TO HOLD THE SPARK PLUG IN. OVER TIME THE SPARK PLUG LOOSENS UP AND BLOWS OUT DUE TO THE HIGH COMPRESSION OF THE PISTON. ALL MECHANICS KNOW OF THIS ISSUE AND HAVE REPAIR HUNDREDS OF THESE PROBLEMS! *JS

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL, ON MY 2000 FORD F-150 IT HAD VERY FEW ISSUES TILL THIS OCCURED. AT JUST OVER 130,000 MILES THE ENGINE BEGAN KNOCKING ON THE INTERSTATE AND PROGRESSIVELY GREW WORSE AS I WAS LOOKING FOR A EXIT, IT STARTED TO LOSE POWER AND I GOT IT TO THE SHOULDER BEFORE IT DIED. LATER THAT DAY I HAD A TOW TRUCK PULL IT UP TO A TRUSTED SHOP ABOUT 60 MILES AWAY. THE MECHANIC THERE SAID THAT IT DROPED A ROD AND THE CRANKSHAFT WAS SHOT. AFTER TALKING TO HIM, HE SAID THAT THIS IS A FAIRLY FREQUENT OCCURRENCE. I TOOK IT TO GET A SECOND OPINION FROM ANOTHER SHOP A FEW MILES AWAY AND HAD THE SAME CONVERSATION. BOTH MECHANICS AND A FEW FOURMS ON THE INTERNET SAID THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH THE 1998-2003 AND 2004 HERITAGE, THAT HAVE THE FORD 5.4 TRITON 2V ENGINE. AT THE MECHANIC THE THE TRUCK WAS DIAGNOSED AS NONREPAREABLE ENGINE AND WOULD HAVE TO BE SWAPED OUT FOR A DIFFRENT ONE. THE COST OF THIS WAS FOR A REBUILT ENGINE BY JASPER'S BECASUE A DONOR TRUCK ENGINE WOULD BE PRONE TO THE SAME FAILURE. THE COST TO REPLACE WOULD TOTAL OUT TO BE AROUND $6500 BETWEEN PARTS AND LABOR INCLUDING THE NEW ENGINE. BE WARY OF THE FORD 5.4 2V ENGINES, THERE ARE A FEW UNICORNS OUT THERE THAT WILL NEVER HAVE A PROBLEM, BUT MOST, EVEN IF THEY HAVE REGULAR MAINTENANCE LIKE MINE WILL BE PRONE TO THIS FATE.
