Nice! I love my ford truck

So steering problems were the issue.

They replace the steering box and my wife drive the truck back from the dealership.

I get in it this morning and start it up and I can hear this harsh humming sound..... look under the truck and there is power steering fluid neatly splashed underneath the truck and the garage floor.

I got my camera and took some pics. Called the dealership that did the work and told them to come pick up this POS truck they sold me. This thing has 1600 miles on it and 600 of them are from us driving it back to the dealership to fix this problem. So 600 miles and its going back for the third time.

cap was not off. Its leaking from what looks like the bottom of the steering box assembly..I dont know there is so much crap that is wet with residue.

Dealer is about 110 miles..maybe further .

Takes almost 2 hours to get there.

Tow truck just left with the rag on the back...bringing it back up to the dealer.

took it to them the first time because they were closer. Said there was absolutely nothing wrong with the truck and it drives just fine. I answered with a kind thank you and will never go to them EVER.

I'm sure the dealer is correct. I can't beleive that a ford dealer would just lie to you.

You were probably driving drunk. That's why the truck feels like it was "Wandering"


Who are you to say that a Ford F350 is a piece of junk, You probably ran over a stick and ripped the power steering line. I'm sure you live in the woods, right?
