  1. F150. EB overheating-towing

    F150 Ecoboost Towing

  12. Help with Freeze Data for pesky P0430

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Long time listener, 1st time caller here. I've been chasing a P0430 for a while and at a loss. Little back story. Bad plugs/gap caused a driver side cat to go bad, which likely increased the back pressure and warped the exhaust manifold and blew out the gasket (while breaking a stud in the head...

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Lately I've been noticing a grinding noise in the LF when I brake lightly and it stays as long as I'm turning to the right and the weight is on that corner of the truck. I've had it to ford and they didn't know what was wrong. They tried the basic brake service they offer but that did nothing...
