    • So I had to work on one already. Brand new unit, noise from engine bay. Found the engine driven fan hitting the lower fan shroud. The lower shroud has an "extension" the uses plastic rivets and clips to hold this extension onto the shroud. Appears it wasn't installed correctly, came loose and hit the fan breaking it into 2 pieces. You can see the sticker on the new 'extension' in the pic with the fan blades installed. As far as repairs, the front of the motor looks easy to get to. Shrouds come off easy, the fan comes off the front of the clutch like a 6.7 does. Like Keith, I'm not a big fan of putting the HPFP in the rear that runs off another belt. Time will tell how other repairs will go. Driving it impresses me. While not as quick as the 5.0 or the EcoBoost motors, I think most customers will be satisfied. I think towing capacity is just below the 3.5 EcoBoost, so that should be sufficient. Anyone towing more should be in a F-250 IMO. Not that the engine cant pull the weight, but I feel the larger truck would do a better job handling the weight of the trailer. A very short drive(13 miles) found it averaging in the mid 20's for MPG, and I noted that this engine will build close to 30 psi easily. We have 2 already and a 3rd coming in August or September, it will be interesting to see how they sell and perform.  
    • I appreciate the kind words sir!
    • Not too long ago Ford updated their Body Boulder Advisory Service website and they even changed the URL of the site and all of the links subsequently changed as well. All of that information is no longer on the Ford Fleet site. The new website is https://fordbbas.com  works on mobile now too!  
    • As of 5pm today I am the only tech in my dealership with any Ford certs.
