RE: Elon tease -- Tesla pick will look like military vehicle

Well, technically yah. YouTube is full of videos of them going down the road hauling various loads. Pretty much all over the country. But they are prototypes and there are only two of them. Well if youtube is full of them it should be real easy for you to link 5 or 6 of them. I say you won't be able to. The clock starts now. Here are a few "fake" cars by GM. https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/gm-vehicle-collection/index.html Since they weren't available to buy they must be fakes. I just went to YouTube and typed Tesla semi truck. I stopped counting after a dozen. Lots of videos of the prototypes hauling various types of loads...including new Tesla’s. :) Post the links!! Post the links. Post them up. Lets see them! If it's so easy post them up! I want to see the Tesla Semi pulling a load down the road. Still doubting huh?LOL https://youtu.be/8DCjy5P53ns https://youtu.be/4VIjFCJls30 LOL, A ya. In the second video I see a Tesla Semi pulling a trailer for a few minutes. Big deal. My 2500 Chevy can do that. :R In the first video I see a Tesla Semi pulling a trailer loaded with who knows how much weight? K rails could be hollow for all anybody know? Why no show an uncut video of a Tesla Semi pulling into a weight station and showing the weight and then showing them pulling that weight for lets say half an hour; 1 hour, 3 hours; whatever. Why not have a 3rd party certify the load? I saw a guy cut a girl in half once! BTW 1 million robo taxies on the road by the end of next year. Full self driving cars on the road by the end of this year. Remember, that's what king Elon said. Only 2 more months Elon. You better get on it! :B

What does that link have to do with anything? Reisender said that "Youtube was full of video's" If that's the case lets see them. Post a link to 5 or 6 of them. Or was that a lie? It's really simple. Post a few videos of the Tesla Semi pulling a load for 15 to 20 minutes or more. Lets see them. He's the one that made the claim. Lets see a few!

This whole thing reminds me of a solution waiting for a nonexistent problem. Kind of like people freaking out over 240F ATF temps. :R

Sticker shock

So I got tasked with the job of taking care of a small fleet of vehicles at work. My boss tells that one of our vehicles (an 09 Ford Explorer) was making a funny noise and wanted me to check it out. I took it for a test driver and sure enough, it was making a very strange almost like turbo noise. It almost sounded like a set of planetaries going out in the tranny. I take it to a local shop that a friend owns and he checks it out but he can't find out where the noise was coming from so my boss said take it to the dealer. So I make an appointment at the dealer and they can't reproduce the noise. Super nice tech. He took me for a ride to see if I could hear it again. Nope, gone. All well. Anyway I haven't been to a dealer in a long time and when I looked at their labor board I about had myself a heart attack! $158.00/ hour!! $158.00/ hour!! I'm out of touch! Is this what some of you outside of Kalifornia are seeing at your Ford dealer? Just wondered.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

LS used to be a great outfit. Since the old man died it went down hill fast. The other day my car tire was low on air so I stopped by LS and left my car there so they could put some air in one of my tires. I went to pick the car up and the girl said they did not put air in my tire. I say what the hell? She said let me get the tech. The tech came out and said I couldn't put air in your tire because it was "so dangerous." I'm like ok. So I get home and take a good close look at the tires. There is nothing dangerous about ANY of them. Where they wearing perfect? Nope, but they for sure worn't low on tread or dangerous. Of course he wanted to sell me tires. I won't go back there because of that. Like I said. Things changed a lot since the old man died. LOL... Come on Turtle so you took your car to a tire store just to add some air? And you even left your car for them to do it? Did I get this right? Tell me I'm missing something here! :h Not at all. I work about 100 steps away. They were busy and I said fine, I'll come back at lunch and tossed them my keys. I came back and.........well....... That's fine. I'm fleet manager of a small fleet of gov vehicles. I use to recommend them to my boss to go there. Not anymore. Anybody know if the techs work on commmission? I got the feeling this guy did. If so it all makes sense now.

RE: Hwy 97 BC to California

This is funny. I live in Enderby and am acquainted with the owner of that museum, he is quite the collector. BTW, to the op, you also posted in Roads and Routes which is where it belongs. I really liked this guy! Just a super nice down to earth fellow. My 23 YO daughter at first did not like the fact that I stopped there. The old guy came out and chatted us up. Next thing I know we were taking a private tour the museum. The guy was so interesting that my daughter really got into it. She even got to fly on of his flying lawn mowers. She was having so much fun that I thought she was going to mow the guy's whole yard! LOL Anyway for $5 per person this is a must see if you like old stuff that works! I could have stayed there for hours and so could my daughter!

RE: Hwy 97 BC to California

I don't really know what you want to know? We came through that way this summer on our way to Richland Wa. The people at the border crossing were nice and friendly to "me." Pretty good size border crossing. The road is not the best or the worst that I have been on. I don't know how low you're going but "I think" (it's been years) between Rufus and Bend I call it the camel hump road. Up and down, up and down over and over again. I burned tons of diesel on that road! Anyway, safe travels and have fun! BTW if you're going through Enderby BC and like "old stuff" I highly recommend you see the largest lawn mower in the world. You can see the largest lawn mower for free but I really recommend you tour his museum. Crazy amount of stuff and most of is still working.

RE: 2012 6.7 Diesel

I never did get the whole fan boi thing? I bought a lot of good stuff in my life and a few bad things. If a friend ever asked about either I would tell them the good points and the bad points and then they can make up their own mind. I even get the whole "mine works great" way of thinking but it's not good logic. Case in point is my 5.7 Olds diesel. The 5.7 is THE WORST diesel ever put into a vehicle. The very worst. I own several of them because at the time I got them for a dime on a dollar and wanted to see what was so bad about them. That being said I put 10's of thousands of trouble free miles on my 5.7. Other than oil changes and such I never put a dime in it. If I didn't know about the reputation of this engine or how it was designed I would be what I call an "ignorantly happy consumer." I once read where way more than half of the 5.7 diesel owners were happy with their hunks of junk. Over 50%!!!! My point is, even if my 5.7 diesel has been trouble free doesn't make it a great or even a good engine. They were the worst diesel engine ever put in a vehicle. I admit that and it would be silly to deny. Unfortunately there are a lot of "ignorant consumers and/or fan boi's" on forums. Speaking of ignorant, I didn't know about the problem Bill talks about with the 6.7 around the 8 minute mark in this video. OP it would be good to watch the above video if you are still interested in buying this truck. This problem is included in the year you are looking at. It's always good to talk to or watch video's of people that work on these things every day of their life.

RE: Experience/Opinions on a 2008 F450 for Towing

Thanks everyone. I looked all over and the consensus is that they are bad engines besides the die hard owners who stand by them. I was shocked that even Bill at PowerstrokeHelp on YouTube recently made a video declaring he won't work on them anymore. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiB6IbPs2Zk Ok, the best comment I saw was: "The 6.4 is like a hot girl with an STD!!!!" :B I don't care how big of a fan boi you are, that's funny! The old saying from an old tech friend of mine was: The 6.0 is junk. The 6.4 is expensive junk.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Which is it....safety or rabbit Mr Tusk... This goes to their initial architectural decisions on thermal for the battery cooling system throttled down S & X for fire safety throttled up for Tusk...mines a faster rabbit Tusk is still micromanaging and still doesn't understand duty cycle Ben, Tusk's Tesla got it's battery kicked. Then Tusk got all whinny about it and started to make excuses. Anybody hear the news that the Tesla with the top fuel wing on the back won the fastest car at the Ring? Ya, me neither! :B Tusk has bigger fish to fry. He just doesn't know it yet. The wheels of justice turn VERY slowly.......and sometimes come to a stop. You just wait until a mansion burns down because of a battery fire. Then the poo will hit the fan as they say. NTSB is coming for you Tusk! Tesla almost burnt an Amazon warehouse down to the ground. It was super lucky this did not burn down to the ground. Amazon like Walmart told Tesla to take their cr@p off of their roofs and never come back. In other news. Any fan bois have any video of the Tesla Semi hauling a load around? Any? No, not still pictures of the thing sitting around with K rails on a trailer. Or it sitting around someones house with a car hauler on the back. I mean VIDEO from some fan boi that shows the Tesla Semi with a certified shown load on it towing for 50 miles or more? Come on, we have more video of Bigfoots walking in the forest than we do of a Tesla Semi with a load on it. Wonder why that is? :B Post them up fan bois! :B

RE: 2012 6.7 Diesel

Preventing catastrophic engine failure. Change those early glow plugs boys. Now that I'm at it, I didn't mention valve cracking problems. I also was remiss in not mentioning the tons of turbo failures they had. Interesting that Ford fixed ALL of these problems later on. The valve issue were listed up the 2015 in their TSB's. Pretty telling. The glow plug clown is in error. The cracked valve problem was poor heat treating and corrected on trucks produced after 3/28/2011. The TSB you are referring to, I believe, was a noise problem addressed by a customer advisory on how to operate a diesel. The ceramic turbo bearings did have a higher failure rate than later steel bearings. Nope: Sorry but you are misinformed. Tell that to thousands of people that had trucks bought after 3/28/2011. Here is the TSB for the valve cracking problem with the 6.7 Powerstroke engine. Do you see the years affected? The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information on a rough running or engine misfire on 2011-2016 Ford 6.7L diesel engines. According to Ford TSB 16-0041 Ford will replace 8 exhaust valve because of a rough running condition on the 6.7 Powerstroke made before 2/23/2016. TSB 16-0041 PICKUP - 6.7L DIESEL ENGINE - RUNS ROUGH DURING EXHAUST REGENERATION PROCESS - BUILT ON OR BEFORE 2/23/2016 Publication Date: March 7, 2016 FORD: 2015-2016 F-250, F-350, F-450 This article supersedes TSB 15-0106 to update the Issue Statement, Service Procedure and Part List. ISSUE: Some 2015-2016 F-Super Duty 250-450 Pickup vehicles equipped with a 6.7L diesel engine and built on or before 2/23/2016 may exhibit a runs rough/misfire condition only during the exhaust regeneration process. This condition typically occurs on light throttle tip in between 64-113 Km/h (40-70 MPH) and will not set diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). The concern may be intermittent and a knocking noise may be present during the concern. ACTION: Do you see the dates? Some say the valves weren't make to spec and some say the guides were too tight. Some say it was a glow plug problem. The bottom line is these engines are blowing up for whatever reason. This is the reason they made big changes to the 6.7 after 2015. If the CP4x pump doesn't get you, the valve problem will. If not that the glow plug issue will......... If anybody asks me about an early 6.7 I tell them to stay away. BTW I do that for an CP4x truck out of warranty......Ford, GM, or Ram. Those pumps are junk IMHO. If anybody ask me about a 2016 on up truck, I would have a preference but I would take any one of the big 3 diesels. Not so with the older ones.

IOW's my recommendation would have been the same, but I would have put up less links for failures. :B

RE: 2012 6.7 Diesel

If you were buying this truck how many miles would cause you to shy away from the truck? 1; seriously; 1 The first to early 15's had problems. Now the fan bois don't want to hear this but it's true. They had turbo, high pressure fuel pump, radiator, glow plug and some lower end bearing problems. Out of those 3 the HPFP was the most troublesome. 15 grand or so to fix that little mistake. The radiator came it at about 2 grand or so to fix. The glow plug problems will cost you a new engine. 2015 on up they changed a lot of those problem parts. If you're set on a Ford get the 2015.5 on up. The later you go the less problems they had.

No charging my electric car today or any day soon. I'm glad I can run it on gasoline. Kalifornia, a state that wants to go wind power and then they cut the power off when the wind blows. LOL
