RE: Ford vs Ram

I guess the point being made is that Ford lies to their customers and the blind little sheep swallow their lies hook line and stinker! Tory waiting to hear what you have to say about this. Don

RE: Tow vehicle

Ford has been shying away from clutch designed for limited slip differentials. Brake-based traction control that is standard takes away much of the market need for it and Ford offers electronic locking (in 4WD only) for much of 2011+ F-150s. According to Fords web-site the 2015 F-150 can be had with "non-limited slip axle", "limited slip axle" or "electronic locking axle" in 4X2 models also.

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

That being said, if anyone thinks any of these automakers or the different parts plants do things substantially different from GM, as far as process control or quality control is concerned, they're kidding themselves. Every one of them, whether here in the U.S., Europe, Asia, South America, wherever...use the ISO standards. I agree 100%, my brother used to work at a company that built seats for all the auto companies, he was their QC liaison. One of the plants he went to was the Marysville, Ohio Honda plant. He told me they are no different then the American Auto companies when it comes to quality control. He now works in layout TMP and is interviewing for the QC liaison at our plant. Don

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

The lighter springs were mandated by the "Americans with disabilities act". Well don't you think GM would have brought that point up if it were true? The ADA can not mandate anything that will will cause a safety issue. If someone can not start a vehicle do to a disability there are up fitters that will add whatever they need to accommodate their disability. The springs were a cost issue noting more! Don

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

You need to find someone else to work on your vehicles if someone is charging you $200 labor to do a fifteen to thirty minute job. I don't know who manufactures our switch but the GM debacle stems from them using a lighter spring. This information can out in the investigation. Delphi engineers told GM that the spring spec was too light, but GM insisted they use their spec not the old spec. (Reuters) - The chief executive of Delphi Automotive (DLPH.N), the auto supplier that supplied the defective switch to General Motors Co (GM.N) that has been linked to at least 13 deaths, said on Thursday that the automaker was responsible for approving the faulty part design. Rodney O'Neal, testifying in front of the U.S. Congress, said his company made "the switch that GM approved and wanted. "GM knowingly approved a final design that included less torque than the original target," he said in prepared written testimony he will make to members of a Senate subcommittee. "In our view, that approval established the final specification." So far, GM has attributed 13 deaths and 54 crashes to the specific defect, in which the ignition switch can slip from the "run" to the "accessory" position, causing the engine to stall, air bags to not deploy, and a loss of power brakes and power steering. O'Neal said Delphi has four production lines running to make ignition switches to replace the faulty parts that have been recalled by GM. He said Delphi has shipped more than one million new switches and is on track to deliver more than two million by the end of August. LINK

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

Or they could use a heavier spring. But that might cost an extra .02 per switch. Don

RE: 2011 Ram brake issue?

Well that good to hear, would have been nice if they had found it the first time it was in. But now you have all new rear brakes and it didn't cost you anything. Have to say that sure sounded like the egg brake shoes to me. Don

RE: Torque converter does not unlock

I can tell you this, when the trans shop told me I needed to replace the converter in my Ram I blew them off. Less then six months later I was having the whole trans rebuilt and a new converter. They told me had I just replaced the converter before the trans would have been fine. Don't wait to have it looked at but with 185,000 miles I'm betting your going to need a total rebuild. Good luck Don

RE: Air Conditioning Help - 2010 Sierra

I talked to the AC guy here at the plant. He said that the new refrigerant is junk and the stuff coming down the pike is not any better. Don

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

Well Ric at least it didn't take years and many deaths of our customers to get Chrysler to do a recall. :R Don lol wut? from your link: Affected are model year 2005 to 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and model year 2006 and 2007 Jeep Commander SUVs let me guess Chrysler had been planning the recall for 7 years and it was just coincidence they happened to wait 3 months after GM announced a recall and there was rumors of a manufacturer coverup. yeah, good for Chrysler to step up. :r Well did you read the link "Chrysler Group LLC said on Tuesday it is recalling 792,300 older-model Jeep SUVs for ignition switch problems, the second recall of its kind for the No. 3 U.S. automaker this year." Now if you can provide anything that says they had prior knowledge and did nothing then post it up Mr. smoke. But Fiat has owned us for just three years, so what the previous owners knew or didn't know is the question. I didn't start the BS Ric did but I can kick the can just like he can. Don

RE: Air Conditioning Help - 2010 Sierra

Mine was doing the same thing, started after I bought a large can of refrigerant added it and then the compressor would make a loud clunk noise along with the rattle-type noise you described. Took it to the dealer and Joe (the tech) looked at me and said so let me guess you thought you would save a little money, right Don? Had over charged the system by over 2 pounds!!!! Cost me $127 to have them fix it. Don

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

Maybe it is time to dive deeper into the keyless tech like Nissan has with its proximity keys. Or an ignition switch like was on my Harley you unlocked the switch and then put the key in you pocket. Just some ideas. I think they all have that as an option, Chrysler vehicles do, not something I like though. Any time you get out of the vehicle a voice comes through the speakers saying "THE KEY FOB HAS LEFT THE VEHICLE" or some stupid thing like that. Stopped for gas in a Jeep Eco-diesel we were test driving and the wife told me to put the key fob back in the Jeep. She said whatever i buy CAN NOT HAVE THAT OPTION! :B Don

RE: It's not just GM with bad ignition switches!

Have to agree that a key ring should only have a few keys on it. Mine has 6 keys with another ring holding the key fob to the truck and all other keys I need. I have hammered my DD about this very thing for years and she still has more junk on her key ring then she needs IMO. But since when do kids listen to their parents? :R
