RE: Gas engines in school buses coming back?

Our local district has about 30 of the newer gas busses. The drivers love them. I believe they are ford v10 engines.

RE: Generator quits

How much fuel is in the tank? Generally generators in motor homes will shut off when the tank gets down to the half or quarter tank. Could be depending on how the vehicle is parked, sometimes it has enough fuel and other times it doesn't.

RE: Best Price for a Stock Ford 4R100 Reman transmission

I'm agreeing with DownTheAvenue. My friends and family probably consider me a "fantastic mechanic" because I do a lot of work on their vehicles, but when it comes to transmissions I have no clue. So just because it's not working properly when I get behind the wheel, I wouldn't say it's junk. I'm not saying he's wrong, but to be prudent it should be diagnosed by a reputable shop specializing in transmissions.

RE: Is Directv stopping SD and what to do?

I'm almost thinking DIRECTV really is pushing their ON-LINE service using AT&T... You can downstream their TV programs over the internet now... SAT DISH not needed anymore... We get info from them all the time wanting us to join up again... $50 a month and use the internet to view the channels... This is pure TV anywhere now haha... You have to connect to the internet however from the RV... I can't imagine trying to stream TV from the wifi service at most campgrounds. Sometimes it's hard enough to check email lol

RE: GM Certified Pre Owned 2016

Many reasons that truck may be on the lot. I'm guessing its because the original owner found it wasn't big enough for their needs. I have a close friend that bought a gas F-250 knowing he was going to be buying a fifth wheel. Less than a year later he traded it on a F-350 diesel dually AFTER he towed his new fifth wheel once. I also have a cousin who bought an HD Silverado because it was his idea of a status vehicle, even though he sat behind a desk and had no trailer to tow. He traded it at less than 20k miles once he got sick of paying for fuel and found out the ride wasn't as luxurious as other status vehicles. I wouldn't be scared of it. Unless it had major accident damage, I can't imagine a dealer is going to try to misleadingly unload a late model vehicle with known problems.

RE: 2016 F250 tranny

Both 5th and 6th gears in your new truck are overdrive gears. The transmission in your new truck doesn't have a "direct" gear with a 1:1 ratio like 3rd gear is your last truck. 4th gear in your new truck has a ratio of 1.15:1 so that multiplies torque more than 3rd in your last truck. However, with the increased power of your new truck, 5th gear might allow you to have the same performance as your last truck in 3rd. One point though...even with the more powerful engine in your new truck, some of that will be eaten up by the heavier weight of the Superduty vs the f150. Also the 6r140 transmission will have more parasitic power loss than the 4r70w transmission in your f150. Finally, if the f250 has larger diameter tires than the f150 that too will effectively reduce your final drive ratio.

RE: Busiest month of year for northern states campgrounds?

July and August for Michigan as well. School is in session for at least the first couple weeks in June here. This year will be a little later with all of the snow and ice days schools will have to make up.

RE: 2011-2013 F150 Recall Details

I'd hate to see what would happen if this occurred at highway speeds while the vehicle was in 4 wheel drive.

RE: swim box

BB_TX is correct. It is the component that puts electrical current into the coax cable to power the dish. Generally it would be located near the TV where the main box is located.

RE: If you have one of these I want to know what you know

Normally scam ads on Craigslist don't give a phone number for contact. The phone number is an Iowa area code. A quick phone call will reveal the truth.

RE: Raptor EB on the Ike

I'm also guessing those engines call for full synthetic. At first glance 240 doesn't seem too high to me for a working engine, as it's good to have oil temps north of 220 to burn off moisture, but if the readings are taken in the sump, I'm sure there are areas of the engine where the oil is much hotter?

RE: Arctic Fox 990 on SRW in the Snow?

Welcome to the forum! What is the actual payload of your truck? That will be found on the tire and loading spec sticker inside the drivers door. That's where we should start. Max payload also includes passengers in the vehicle, and with 3 adult passengers that will likely eat up 400 pounds of payload at least. Unfortunately I think you will find you will be severely over the trucks payload rating as most of these larger higher end TCs are meant for duallys. While some people are comfortable being slightly over the trucks gvwr, all agree the axle and tire ratings should not be exceeded. You can find this out by taking the truck empty to the scales and weigh the rear axle and see how much capacity you have left. Good luck!

RE: CP4 Class action lawsuit

Interesting. They use a lot of definitive statements. Claiming manufacturers "always deny warranty coverage", and that by 100,000 miles "all truck owners see the costly results". I'm guessing there are more than a few 2012 vehicles out there with a quarter million miles that still have the original pump. I know that at least the early cp4 pumps were delicate, especially when water was introduced to the fuel system, and that's when I remember the manufacturers being a little finicky about replacement. Not defending Bosch or their cp4 pump, but here we go again with lawyers driving up the cost of the products we buy.
