  10. The Focus forum has this info: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/mk3-focus/430434-torque-pid-ford-focus.html#/topics/430434 Maybe it will work for the TC since they are similar platforms. I have the Torque app but have not researched how to add custom data. If you get it to work please share.
  11. Sweet, I really like it. I almost went with the red, chose black instead. I like the wheels, 17" - couldn't get them with the cargo van only the wagon. Great choice, my 2017 has been bullet proof, no warranty issues yet at 21,000 miles. Congrats! Many fun times ahead.
  12. I was wondering if anyone on here uses the Torque app and has figured out a custom PID for monitoring transmission temps. I'm running a 14 TC with the 2.5l.
  13. Last week
  14. Brake wear

    Most do but you would be surprised at how many don't and also the number that are missing a hole to adjust the brakes.
  15. Brake wear

    I thought all drums had inspection holes. Never thought of checking mine on the Connect.
  16. Brake wear

    The only way to really check Drum Brakes is to pull the wheels and drums. A lot of shops do not seem to want to pull the drums for just an inspection. The other thing to check when the Drums are off is the adjusters . Make sure they are operating , this will assure that all the brakes on the TC are doing there job.
  17. Winter Tire Thread

    The real issue with the Snow is practice I have driven lots of types of vehicles in the snow over the years. Some are great some are not, but they all can go where you need most of the time. The key is knowing how the vehicle you are in at the time will handle. The only other rule of thumb is knowing when to stay off the roads when the number of idiot drivers rises to and unacceptable level.
  18. Ford Announces Marketing Personnel Change

    Ford Motor Company today announces that Musa Tariq, vice president and chief brand officer, has elected to leave the company. View the full article
  19. Winter Tire Thread

    No worries, but I will take your advice next time GBL and turn off the Traction Control. When its all said and done, this would not be my first choice of a vehicle to drive in the snow.
  20. Interesting......I think I like it.
  21. Brake wear

    Keep an eye out when you get a warning about brake wear from you mechanic. I had my 2013 Transit inspected when I bought it at 45,000 and also at 53,000. (Different shop.) Both told me that the rear brakes were starting to go, but I’m pretty sure that neither one actually looked at the parts—is this something that would show up on the OBD? Is there something else I don’t know about the brake assembely that could have caused him to recommend replacement? I took the drums off of both rear wheels last month, planning to do the replacement myself,, and I had tons of pad left—they looked closer to new than used. (Currently around 54,000 mostly highway driving with light loads.) I checked the discs too, and those will definitely need replacement before 60,000. But what I don’t understand is why both mechanics said to replace the ones in back. Definitely keep an eye on the brakes if you own one of these vans, it looks like it’s a known issue, but also take what you hear with a grain of salt.
  22. Yes, it's a Weathertech BumpStep. It works well as a step, but I like it in case someone bumps into me, which has happened on my other vehicle and saved my rear door from getting smashed in. I also have the wider version called BumpStep XL (24" wide), but it was interfering with my back-up sensors, this BumpStep 12" wide one doesn't.
  23. Millions of customers can soon upgrade the connectivity in their older-model Ford vehicles to include a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, smartphone control of existing key fob features, vehicle health and security alerts, and vehicle location tracking. View the full article
  24. Winter Tire Thread

    Nice little second day of spring snow out this morning so I am about to get my first taste of the TC in the snow. Have to get the van inspected & oil change before heading to NC next week. We'll see how she does but the Uniroyals on it are definitely not snow tires.
  25. I like the cargo doors because I tend to enter and exit thru the back. I just know a hatch would whack me in the head (when I wasn't looking). What is that on the hitch, a step?
  26. what seats will fit?

    I use a chair cushion, like for wooden kitchen chairs. Fits perfect.
  27. I understand but the 1400KM trip would have been an adventure. How far north in Quebec?
