"The New Guy"
Hello...great site everyone. My brother-in-law works at ford and pushed me here. I've never posted anything before so here it goes. My 2004 shortbox crew is not a happy truck and making me unhappy in the process. It goes back to the dealer next week for the fifth time. Oil, oil, oil leaks and a clunky trans. I have had a total of 8 differant leaks repaired (no rear main yet..go figure), the turbo replaced and the dealer says that the "clunk" is normal (they gave me a factory notice dated 8/26/04 #18100.) This normal "clunk" is now louder and doing it more frequent. Its always at low speeds 1-2 gear speeding up and slowing down. I' bought it new and with only 48,500 miles on it needless to say I have not been a happy camper with customer service. Anybody have any suggestions on avenues of repair other than parking it in front of the offices in Dearborn.....Thanks JD
