    2015 TC transmission fluid change

    Good question..i'm due. I wonder if the cooler lines would work.Drain and fill several times to labor intensive for me.

    fueling auto stop going off prematurely

    2016 XLT cargo...mine works fine.
  3. Approaching 30k on my 2016.I too am concerned about the trans..it has performed as advertised. I also checked trans out put drive shaft seals as i heard some leak. Mine were both dry
  4. Used retired credit card edge to scrap off the majority then 91% isopropyl which works well but leaves a slight residue. Hit it with some quick auto spray wax to restore shine. Thinking there has to be a better way

    Catalytic converter

    I always thought federal emissions were 8 years and 80k.
  6. I would leave it in place..i hit a huge puddle on i 93 in Boston after a deluge..my TC submarined briefly. I thought for sure i was going to crash or get hit from behind.After resurfacing TC stayed straight and running properly. I think the pan deflected most of the water away from the lower engine bay area. Without the pan i suspect i would have belt squeal ,engine stutter or a CEL at the very least.

    Blower Fan Access

    How did the leaves get in there if the 2 screen caps under the hood in back were in place?
  8. Just did oil change today..got lucky..plastic inserts tightened down ok but more caution next time.🚐
  9. Getting ready to do an oil change..is the drain plug washer reusable? 22k on vehicle.

    Engine runs rough at idle, idles too low

    FWIW we had similar symptoms to yours as well occasional difficult(extended crank) starting in some ford rangers,all kinds of codes..going on memory here but i believe there was a shifted key(barely) in the harmonic balancer causing the CPS signal to PCM confusion. 🙁
  18. 2016 TC XLT. cargo, nice and quiet on fresh or dark pavement,older gray pavement gets noisy..no complaints but while i'm in my panels and wheel wells adding power ports, shore power and other wiring etc i would like to add insulation...something non adhesive and easy to pack in such as polyfill or kraft type insulation...kind off a 50/50 sound deadening thermal application would be fine...suggestions..advice

  20. I have been leaving spare fob on the mat and using my other fob to gain entry(fob always stays clipped to my belt)...once inside grab fob off the mat and use it to start vehicle. Am i violating protocol possibly draining vehicle battery(has not occurred) or draining the fob battery? So far all is well with all operations.
  21. Lots of posts on this subject but nothing in particular on the 6F35 transmission. I quite often slide the shifter in N at extended stops..idle smoother and easier on my left leg. In N is the pump working and still pushing fluid through the cooler ?
  22. Willygee

    Long traffic lights is ok to shift into neutral?

    Thanks Mike..My TCgen2 seems happier in N at stops especially with the AC on..less buzzy. Without the AC on idle in D is quite smooth..nature of a 4cyl engine i guess.
