  1. I think you are good from the Tc's standpoint. A possible downside is providing a potential thief access to the key.
  2. I have not yet gotten mad enough to take on the issue. If you check out Windguy he built a clever tie bar for his rig that could be helpful. His post's have some pictures
  3. Mine is a 2014 Xlt with the 6F35 . I often tow a 1300- 1600 lb trailer I change the fluid every 23000- 26000 miles . I have 63000 on the clock. The transmission has been very good. Don is correct that it is hard on the fluid. I think there are a lot of 2 year lease vehicles and the mileage is correct for the lease time.
  4. Here are two picture from Ford parts and the location of the plug heater is the same for both the 1.6 and the 2.5. The plug is on the fly wheel end of the engine behind the exhaust manifold. It will be a tough job.
  5. Transmission fluid change

    Nice Report Don, I used the vent to fill mine with a long funnel and the fluid went in fast. I have changed mine twice at approximately 25000 mile intervals. This vehicle works the fluid hard so for the price of the fluid I might shorten the interval.
  6. 2014+ TC Manual Conversion

    Hey dotmastetr206 any progress?
  7. The engine layout of the Diesel model is most likely different. No Diesels over hear yet.
  8. The manual lock feature is good to know about. There is a memory saver that can be plugged into a power socket that will not have enough power to spark any thing but will provide enough to maintain the computer memory settings.
  9. Very Nice, Looks like you might have the TC before the North Korean thing gets out of hand!!
  10. It would be a Gen 1 and pretty early in the US bound TC's
  11. Water dripping from fan unit ?

    It should be on the engine side of the firewall.
  12. Thanks I will have to check it out also
  13. How the VW Van became iconic

    Very Cool
  14. Absolutely the warranty does follow the car.
