I hate my truck!!!!!!!!

Just venting but, WOW so far i have lost my waterpump, alternator, 2 fuel pumps, 1 cps, Battey cable hell, Now my truck stalls at red lights and tonight i went to clean my fuel bowl thinking it was dirty witch it was just a little dirty. And now i cant install my fuel filter lid without it blowing fuel all over the f'n place. So i guess my lid is now bad!!!!!! And i was going to ford tommarow to try to diagnose the stalling issue. Well not till i get a fuel lid on now. Oh and ive only had the truck for four month's.






Did someone say cummins? J/K Well maybe, Nah ?????????????????????






























Bye the way I STILL LOVE MY TRUCK!!!!

I don't remember, does the flat side of the gasket go against the lid or rounded side go toward the lid?

Funniest ever "There all bolting parts on watching the clock at the same time."


And i believe the flat side goes down first, But iv had it both ways and it leaks like no other so my guess is the lid's threads where screwed up. so it would screw on wierd. Just i couldnt tell if they wre screwed up.

I'de say this is caused by owner neglect. Not saying it's you since you've had it for 4 months but I see that trucks that aren't service when they should run into problems. But trucks that are serviced regulary seem to be problem free. My truck has been serviced regulary and haven't had any engine problems besides the little oil leak Ford found and fixed. We have another truck that got serviced when ever and at 101K miles it went in with some problems and ended up costing $6K to get everything fixed.
