    Don't tell FORD, they'll want to pull it apart to find out what they did wrong!
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Yeah, probably not something you would be forgetting in a hurry either.

    or the new Navaras.... I tried to help a local council bloke yesterday , his NP300 ute with 31,000klm wouldnt start after doing some landscaping outside my house. said it had been getting harder to start and yesterday it was making some very expensive crunchy noises from the front timing chain area. had to get it towed to Pisstin who diagnosed chain failure. plenty of others online with similar issues. just rubbish.

    got it back from service, going beautifully.
    one of my female drivers did a local job in it and broke the drivers inside door handle.
    just replaced it, it was the original, that must be a record for a ford 1002300km.....

    just had a gearbox replaced in another fg, first time.
    it only had 350000km on it, i think fitter may have used wrong oil.

    turns out its not that easy, i had to buy pcmtec software to reflash the new tcm serial into the pcm......
    luckily i had an autel j2534 ecu programmer on hand, just had to download the pc suite and install drivers and do latest updates.

    now i can turn off those pesky cat converter warning lights.....

    and put some new injectors and a sprint calibration into the turbo pcm and tcm.....
