  1. At the dealer, for battery issues

    Having a ‘17 Escape as our other vehicle, I’ll be looking to test drive a Bronco Sport next time I’m in for service (towards the end of this month ). Your choice with the Mustang is a natural of course. How much gas did they leave in the tank for the test drive? Every time I do a tester (which...
  2. Think I Threw a Rod....

    So, how about that rod throwing stuff? 🙃
  3. Problems pumping gasoline!

    As others have said it’s the pump. If it isn’t the pump it’s the user. There are a lot of factors you didn’t say so it’s a stab in the dark.
  4. Rim Load Rating and Winter Alloys

    I can’t help on the weight questions, but I can offer this: - What size of rim are you talking 18, 17, 16? - The “preferred package “ from the dealer (Meadowvale Ford in Mississauga) gave me Firestone WinterForce 2 rubber, on 16 inch grey/silver steelies. They did their job, but it was a...
  5. Ranger vs Maverick Pickup: First Real World Size Comparison Look

    This will be the fleet vehicle many will be after. Sounds like it’ll be priced pretty low considering what it is. I can see this take over the smaller truck market share away from the current Frontier/Ridgeline, and with the Frontier looking to try and jump up it leaves the new Maverick and...
  6. I'm getting my transmission rebuilt or replaced

    Maybe I'm too anal particular, but when I saw "route cause" in the service write-up I started to cringe. I know, no big deal but when it comes to an issue this detailed I wonder what else "oops'ed". But it does look like they did a thorough job so hope it all works out for you @rangerdanger
  7. How often should the fuel pump prime itself when the truck is just sitting there?

    Just wondering, but is it only, always the high-pressure fuel pump (hpfp) that is “doing it’s thing”? I was seeing over in the Bronco Sport forum of how a “fan” sound coming from the front was part of the headlamp assembly. Apparently it can run for upwards of 20 minutes and is to prevent...
  8. Engine Misfire

    Thank you for letting us know! This “water in places you don’t expect “, had a 2005 Freestar van (great vehicle) and one day wife was out on a farm with it and it wouldn’t start. Had CAA (AAA) tow it to the dealership. They asked me if I had been driving though water because some control box...
  9. I'm getting my transmission rebuilt or replaced

    Isn’t that what Cancel/Resume is for, switch “off” for a few seconds and just coast 🙂
  10. It was bound to happen....today at Wegmans, I am

    Is that an SCab at 2 o’clock?
  11. Anyone check out the Bronco yet?

    Wife and I are very happy with our ‘17 Escape, (1.5 SE FWD) and am looking for another 5 years or so with it but. IF we were going to get rid of that, the Bronco Sport would be an ideal replacement. We both like ‘em from what we’ve seen. Even in a base model it would be overkill (but awesome!)...
  12. 2019 vs 2021 Ranger cost cutting moves for Ford

    Or maybe someone who had a ‘20 went back to their dealer to “point out” that they were missing on theirs, and the dealer took them from the ‘19 on the lot which may have become yours 🙂
  13. Fuel in oil

    I might sound like a dealer (which I am not even remotely close to), but come back in 4-5 months when the winter blend gas has been run through and be back to “normal”. My money’s on you’ll be back to your 19mpg or better if you’re doing that much highway. At least I hope so :) My (unverified)...
  14. Am I delusional

    Just so you know, if you start adjusting other hvac controls you are disabling the auto system. Auto is exactly that, the system does all the appropriate settings and vents to use (typically the front windshield and lower vents in my experiences). if you start changing the fan speed or other...
  15. 2021 Ranger Tremor Reviews Are Here - Articles & Videos

    The Edmunds matchup of the Tremor with the TRD Pro is strange... they match the Tremor versus the TRD Pro the whole way along, and at the end they recommend just the lesser priced TRD, which they don't indicate anything about throughout the rest of the review/article. Kinda strange one there.
  16. I’m searching for best H/P tuner or chip 2020 Ranger

    I was just looking earlier today. According to them Towing "not recommended" in the description. They don't outright say you can't, but...
  17. Sure is lonely up here eh?

    Ford Pass updated today, we have the rewards program here now! And I see a LOT more dealers across the country are added to the plan, including my local shop (Meadowvale Ford). Unfortunately it's not retroactive. But, it's a start!
  18. Report your MPG

    One-way road trip yesterday. Speed average of 95-115 km/h, 87 octane Shell, stock 2019 Lariat FX4 but am running smaller winter tires (16 rims). Ambient outside temp ranged from 3 Celsius where I left to -3 Celsius at my destination. Half the trip was into rising elevation changes, and pretty...
  19. Gasoline in Ontario (or Canada)

    I've actually been mostly using the V-Power since last fall when I started to use it (was pretty well always an 87 consumer up until then). I do the occasional 89 or 87 tank now in the freezing temps as I understand that having some ethanol content actually helps as a "fuel line de-icer" in the...
  20. Anyone check out the Bronco yet?

    Seeing these out there in the wild more now up here in the Mississauga/Toronto area. My local dealer has 3 (1 had a sold sign on it) that I went by and saw on the lot this past Sunday. Funny enough, on Saturday when out giving our Escape a car wash, pulled out behind a Bronco Sport so ended up...
