  1. What kind of interior bar do u use?

  2. Just an update on my post on this subject. The seal obviously worked on my leaking problem and at 71800 miles the trans is still soft going from 2 to 3 but it doesn't seem any worse.
  3. We are misunderstanding. My current TC IS a 2014 with the 2.5L engine. My last one was a 2010 with the 2.0L engine. My 2014 will blow the doors off of a Gen 1 and gets better MPG's.
  4. Grille guard/brush guard or bull bar?

    Will do. Need to find a UK TC site and ask.
  5. Geez! It's been a long two weeks! I got it on AUGUST 8 not October.... I got my 2010 in October. Yes, it's 95% highway driving but I only work 3 days a week. I'll average 1,000 a week. That ciphers out 'bout right. Johnnyguy, the in-car MPG calculator averages around 27 and I drive it like I stole it! I can "grandmaw" it and it'll max out at 31 but that's not a tank full average. I can't baby it that long! (singing " I can't drive 55") That's about 200-250 miles. Thanks bx77! It's hard to keep clean but it sure looks good when it is. Autobell has a $24.95 a month unlimited exterior was and hand dry that I'm seriously considering for the winter months. I washed it this afternoon, 45 degrees and dried it by a blast up the highway! That $24.95 is sounding better and better!
  6. I want a wrap-around grille guard. We sell Setina police push bars/grille guards but they don't make them for the '14 TC. Aries made them for the Gen 1 TC's but their dealers say no to the '14. Anyone anywhere seen one? I've already had a truck musflap and a recap tread fly up into the front end. The flap knocked the bumper cover loose and the tread impacted the cover also and broke a fog light. I do not want to see what a deer does to it!!!
  7. Heavy fuel smell in van upon fill up

    Likewise. When the nozzle clicks off, out it comes. No smell.
  8. I got it mid-October It has 17316 miles Leaking from left axle seal, 1 QT low on fluid, polished axle shaft and replaced seal. Still shifts just like it did when I took it in, notes say shift problem non-existant. When I went to pick it up I waited 15-20 minutes for "my" "Service Advisor" to come to the write-up area. He was paged 3 times and I was left standing there......So I went to the check-out window, they retrieved my van and I left. ill be back.........
  9. Can someone scan and post the fuel line recall. Ford says no recalls for my VIN. I smell fumes everytime I fuel up!
  10. Put my '14 in the shop Friday for fuel line recall and transmission sliding into 3rd from 2nd, as well as a regular service. Trans tech took a ride with me and said he couldn't feel the tranny sliding into 3rd. Told him I smelled oil/fluid occasionally. He said not possible because the belly pan would conceal any leaks and the tranny would fail before I noticed leaks. The called me and said there was no fuel line recall for my VIN. Then said they found an axle seal leaking. Well it's monday and when I called them they had not found an anwer for a replacement seal. Guess I'll be printing off part of this thread for him to read since they are oblivious to this being a problem. Letting me take the van until they can come up with an answer for the seal.
