    Sounds like an awesome plan, i'll get right on it! i actually took it in to another dealership in my area. The service associate i gave my truck was actually more personal with me. This dealership, the bays are not behind closed doors and i can actually sit there and watch them work on my truck, which i wont cause i dont have the time to sit there. They saw the mess the other dealership made and said they would clean it off for me, not full detail, but enough for me to locate any new oil leaks. On friday of last week, my truck actually loss power 3x (Hill assist errors/check engine light/erratic idle/check engine 2112 code) and I had to trun it off. When I got home I immediately called other dealership and they put me on to a number I was able to get a free tow from. I had a scheduled appointment with them for tuesday of this week, but my service associate said that they would attempt to get it in earlier if possible. On Saturday i called them to see if they would be able to get to it in and they told me they were swamped, but I was first in line for monday. That was good enough for me. On monday afternoon they called me and told me there were a few things that were lose from the last person who touched my truck and they had left aThinn mess. They were also able to hear the gasket leaks I was talking about, but needed it for one more day to verify. They only heard it when the truck was cold and didnt have time to let it idle to get hot and take it for a longer drive due to time of day...... On tuesday, before lunch, they called me and told me they ordered 2 new exhaust manifolds, gaskets, studs, and other required stuff they needed to change them and that my truck was ready for pick up till parts arrive because it was now driveable and wiped down..... I'm glad the truck has found a place that actually gives a damn and associates know what they are talking about and trat you the way you expect.

    Just got my truck back from the place that cares a couple days ago. Prior to my appointment for the manifolds, the truck started stopping again so the truck was back at the dealership via tow truck, prior to them getting the manifolds in. They hooked me up with a loaner I used for about 30 days and 1500+ miles of commute, replaced the manifolds and gaskets I suspected were leaking, replaced the sticking throttle body and wiped down the mess the other dealership left. They refused to go beyond that, but atleast i can see if something is leaking. I've drove the truck for over 100 miles now and am regaining confidence that I will no longer have to trade it in and start off fresh on a new vehicle. Retirement is around the corner and the last thing I want to have is a car payment to worry about. A lot of time was taken because they would not replace my throttle body under the 60k powertrain becuase it would always say "not covered" when they typed part number into system. However, my service advisor did his job and advised me to call up ford to open up a case number. The wait for the response/ dealer back and forth was about half the time Luckily they had one on hand when they got the green light to fix it. Thank god, they gave me a 19 2.7 with 1.8k miles on it to drive. Loved the truck for a few days, but after a week the 10 spd started to get on my nerves. tooooo many shift point! Just wanted to close out the thread and give yall the end results stating there is a possibility that my next vehicle, 10 years down the line, may just be another Ford!
