I was out this weekend to test drive a few trucks. I test drove a RAM, GMC, and a Tundra. This is my honest opinion:

Before your next oil change, pull the filter and cut it open with and oil filter cutter (must use an oil filter cutter or you'll contaminate it). If you have metal in it, fight Ford on it. I just had...

Here's another video I took that shows what it sounds like in the cab. It's hard to hear but it's audible around 0:34 when I put the phone near the windshield and in the footwell.

The BBB is a private company paid by Ford to run their arbitration programs. Coming from experience, it is a completely rigged process. My arbitrator allowed Ford to continually cut me off and badger...

Blue/yellow smoke on startup combined with a knock just off idle (could be duplicated by slightly brake torquing) and 2000-3000 RPM. The old engine was replaced due to scoring in the cylinder head...

The knock in my 5.0...fixed?

For anyone that’s followed my situation with my 2016 F-150 5.0, I thought I would post an update. I’ve received somewhat of a “Chicken Little” reputation by some for pointing out when stuff is broken...

Your fear mongering about letting a dealership do its job and fulfill its obligations under warranty is completely unfounded. Sure, mistakes happen, but if you understood how fool proof Ford makes...

I think the thing is, we have to wait to see how some of the others that have had their tensioners replaced make out. At the end of the day, I'm not trying to send people in the wrong direction, I...

I don't have a 2.7 but at least from what I've seen on this site, the 2.7 as of late (2018+) has been one of the least mentioned in terms of problems. The 5.0 seems to be the troublemaker lately.

For the people that have a ton of condensation watch your coolant level. There's a known issue with the turbos leaking coolant into the exhaust. It's not actually the turbo itself leaking, but one of...
