Hi everyone. My name is Nikki and I am new to the forums. Have always had Fords but I recently got a 2013 f350 Diesel and I love it. Its going to be a learning experience but so far the truck is awesome! I have a lot to learn about them and this has been a very helpful place so far. In the garage are two Mustangs as well. I have a 2006 Legend Lime supercharged GT and the husband has a 1991 Fox body with a 347 stroker in it. I am daily driving the truck and I just dont have enough places to go yet! Take care and see ya around.

Welcome to the ORG!

Whereabouts are you? There are several state chapters here on the ORG. One of the good things about this site, is meeting up with people in your local area. I've met and made several friends in my area, thanks to this site. My trusted diesel mechanic is also a member on this site, and in my club.

I am located in Illinois, about 40 miles south of Chicago. Already having some problems with my new truck. Had an oil leak, so they replaced a bunch of parts and pans, pulled the trans and still didnt find it but luckily replacing the parts helped. The next day I took it back to another shop because of a very erratic ticking /clicking noise and really long, hard shifting. I wasnt happy how I was treated at the first place so I am trying out a different one. I take it back on Wednesday to address the new problems but if anyone has any suggestions for a Ford dealer in my area, let me know. Thanks
