  1. Who got arrested ???

    The way they kept going in circles, I just knew when the van stopped a bunch of clowns were going to jump out. Not really sure what drugs they were on to make them think a 4 cylinder TC would make a great get away vehicle. But they did manage to show a lot of people the great ability these vans have to navigate tight spaces. Just wish I could have been there to laugh at them as they were being "politely" restrained on the ground.
  2. Good-by and Good Luck

    Hate to see you leave. I enjoy reading your posts and they are always very informative. But I also understand where you are coming from. It was a pleasure having you as our Mod on here. I suck at good byes, so I will just sat till next time may the Lord bless you and protect you in your journeys.
  3. Ok. Which one of yall decided to run from the police and got taken down hard ??? Saw this and about peed my pants laughing.
  4. Hi all newbie here

    Welcome to the group.
  5. Indeed I have. But sometimes I just want to remove the hat and relax, so the shed lining is easier. On a serious note. When I worked at the prison we had an Inmate who always had to have his foil hat with him and on. He really did not like it when we had to remove it to do a search. I worked on the mental health unit and there was never a dull moment at work. And with these self driving cars, I may just wind up there with them one day. Just crazy not having a driver in a car.
  6. It's the NSA. I bet they cracked the code of what my name means and are looking for me. Gotta go hide in my foil lined shed now.
  7. Only 150K Scheduled Maintenance Log

    I am glad that it "sounds" like that. I have jokingly named my personal workshop Eventually Automotive. Cause Eventually I get it figured out. Lol
  8. Front suspension

    The FTC is built on the same platform as the Ford Focus. I am not 100% positive, but you may be able to use the info from the Focus. I am guessing they would be the same as well. But maybe one of the others can answer this better.
  9. Hello from CT

    As far as finding a sponsor for a Ford Transit Connect Forum, here in NC that would probably be Budweiser. Every night when I pass their plant here on I-85 the parking lot is full of little white Transit Connects with the Budweiser logo on the sides. And who else in America loves to plaster their name on everything more than Budweiser. lol
  10. Was just sitting here reading over the Scheduled Maintenance Log in the owners manual for my 2012 and noticed it only goes to 150K miles. I am entering in all the info for my vehicles into a shop management program to make it easier to access in the shop versus digging out the owners manual each time. But I am 210K on one TC and 220K on the other TC. Does Ford only expect the life expectancy to be 150K miles on these vans ? Guess I will use their list to make a longer list past 150K. Just keep repeating their list over and over and just change the millage. But really makes me wonder if they really only expect these things to last 150K.
  11. We have been very blessed.
  12. It truly is. We have wanted one for years. The best feeling in the world was working on the first vehicle the other day when we got her up and running. Watching the car go up in the air the first time was awesome. Dad cant get down on the ground much anymore, and I really dont like jacking up an car to work on the ground. So when we were handed the chance to have one added to the new shop we jumped on it. Now I am indoors out of the weather, and do not have to lay on the ground to work. No more excuses not to fix stuff now. LOL
  13. I finally replaced my radiator over the weekend that has been leaking for the last 5 months or so. Wasn't to bad of a job. I was going to snap pictures during the process but when I had finished I realized I only managed to get these two pictures taken. :( Replaced at 210k miles.
  14. Oil Change

    Amen to both of these. 52" TV for a monitor and I still have to scroll down to see all of most of his posts. But at least when he gets done with the post, very few questions remain on what he was trying to say. We had two local Ford dealers in my county. I purchased my van from the most competent of the two. After the first year of owning my van the dealer closed its doors due to the owner being very ill. (passed away a few months later :( ) The second dealer is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine. The next closest dealer is an hour drive one way from my house. But who needs a dealer when we have each other to help figure things out as the happen.
