problem #2

I was driving casually on US17 North on my way to work. My truck suddenly lost power and service engine light illuminated. I took it in to the dealer they told me nothing was found to be wrong. Then the same event happened about 7 months after that. I brought the vehicle back in for diagnosis and repair. They told me nothing was wrong and to take it back and stop wasting their time. I asked them to keep it and give me a different vehicle in which they would not. I left the truck with the dealer and Ford motor credit repossessed the faulty vehicle.

Spark plugs are engineered counter sunk in holes in top of the heads, when the plugs are unscrewed the bottom of the plug more often than not breaks off inside the spark plug hole. This requires very expensive tools and a skilled mechanic to extract. I feel the part was engineered to fail to force the price of repairs up. Leading up to this when the plugs begin to fail the engine will fail without warning and without the engine needs service light ever coming on. When this happens and their is no place to pull over you hope your not ran into by oncoming traffic.
