I haven't had that kind of motor trouble, but the dealer experience you are having is very common. My truck (which I need for work too) sits for weeks at the dealers - often just in the lot waiting for attention.

Ahh, sorry missed that part. Yes that sucks. Sorry about your luck. A month does sound excessive, a couple weeks maybe, but a month is too much.

Where you from btw? Noticed you said Ford Canada. Calgary here.
