    Oil Change

    I am not going to names here, but I have had the pleasure of watching a mechanic at a shop here locally get the oil from the supply room to do a oil change. The Customer specified it had to be Castrol 10w30 and nothing else. Me and the mechanic (A Friend) walk into the supply room where six 55 gallon drums are sitting. He grabs a empty Castrol 10w30 jug, walks over to one of the drums, pumps the pump handle and fills the jug up. Walks out and dumps it in the Customers car. The side of all six drums were labeled Havoline 10w20. Yet another reason I do not take mine anywhere. You just never know. But name brand is not to big of an issue for me as long as it meets the requirements. The name on the jug does not keep my car running, its whats inside. But that is just me, unless it is mayonnaise and then it better be Duke's.

    Drivers seat side trim broken?

    Even the Gen 1's have this problem as well. My '12 had this problem as well as Moms '12 has it also. They use plastic because it is cheaper, but sees Ford is using cheap cheaper plastic on the seats for these vans.

    Luckily all of my stops make sure I have a nice wide open area to park in. They have to wait on me to get there and unload before they can start their jobs. So they keep the area clear so I can get in and out fast. Now the fuel is going to be higher and a downside. Now I will have to drive the Charger a little easier to save money for the work vehicle. LOL I still have one more 2012 TC that my Mom drives for work and I do the maint. on. So I will still be sticking around. Plus do not count me out just yet, I may sneak out and snag me another TC one day.

    Looks like I will be replacing the TC with a used SUV. Just purchased a 2000 Lincoln Navigator with 4 wheel drive. This takes care of almost all of my concerns for a new work vehicle. Maybe one day I cam find another TC that s priced right, but for now this one will fit the bill.

    Also if you are just reading OBD2 codes then you do not have to have the vehicle running. Just the key in the run position with the engine off will work.
  7. I am not going to lie I do not remember much about this. It was cold and I was in a hurry to get it done before I had to go back to work. In my rush I forgot to take pictures other than the ones that are on here. :( But the one thing I do remember is breaking the plastic hanging clip on the new radiator on the drivers side top. Got in a hurry and started trying to force it instead of asking for help, and snap it broke. If you have someone who can stand topside and help guide it into place life will be much easier on you. The clips on the top are designed to go into a hole and then slide to the right towards the passenger side and are kinda a pain to line up from the bottom when you cant see them. It really is not a hard task to complete, unless you are like me and try to rush through it. I also recommend watching some youtube videos on the procedure. I used this video as a reference but keep in mind that the bolt sizes and some of the parts are different between the two vehicles. But they are very close to the same.

    I am actually considering all options. I am looking at anything I can put cargo in the back of. I am not above the old school station wagons either. I am looking at new, used, and abused vehicles. But the more that I dig, the more I am leaning towards a used 4WD vehicle. And the more that I look at them the more I am leaning towards a used SUV. I have my eye on a used 05' Ford Explorer right now that was owned by the county next to me. But I am still looking and not 100% set one a single vehicle yet. I also have not ruled out going new or a van either. I have also looked at all of those vehicles as well. But the one van that I would pounce on in a heart beat if I could find one in decent shape and the right price would be an old school VW Micro Bus. But good look in finding that combo. :( But maybe 2022 will bring me some joy on this one. https://www.businessinsider.com/vw-microbus-launching-in-2022-will-have-big-updates-2018-1

    Ok. I finally got to talk to someone at my local store that new something other than what is on the shelf that they can see. These are only sold by HF in the kits. I asked how they planned to replace one under the lifetime warranty when I break mine and was told we would have to cross that bridge then. But as for now they have no way to replace this item even though it has their lifetime warranty on it.
