2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Uses Aluminum to Shed 350 LBS
Sep 24, 2015 - 10:43 AM - by

The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty has been introduced as the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty truck lineup ever.

Like the 2015 Ford F-150, the new F-Series Super Duty has turned to an aluminum body to help shed up to 350 pounds on the heavy-duty truck. It marks the first time that the Super Duty body uses military-grade aluminum alloy, which Ford claims is more dent- and ding-resistant than the outgoing steel body and is not subject to red rust corrosion.

The fully boxed frame consists of more than 95-percent high-strength steel, making it up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame, enabling the most towing and hauling capacity ever delivered by Super Duty.

Ford also highlighted the 16 segment-first new features that help towing easier and more efficient than ever. Some of those features include all-new advanced coaching and camera technology, LED lighting and adaptive cruise control. As many as seven cameras help drivers see more angles and monitor conditions around the truck, while a center high-mounted stop lamp camera gives visibility into the cargo box. There is also a 360-degree camera system that uses four digital, high-definition cameras for a bird’s-eye view surrounding the truck.

Other firsts for the F-Series Super Duty include a factory-available trailer camera that can be attached to a trailer for enhanced visibility while backing up. Customers will also benefit from a segment-first, in-cab trailer tire pressure monitoring system.

Numerous driver-assist technologies will be available on the F-Series Super Duty including SYNC 3, Blind Spot Information System with trailer tow, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support.

Available powertrains include the second-generation Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel, 6.8-liter V10 gasoline or 6.2-liter V8

Why Won’t My Car Start?
May 05, 2015 - 1:14 PM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car won’t start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Here’s a list with ten common reasons why cars don’t start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Institute’s Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. He’s certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if there’s something wrong with your car, chances are he’s seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isn’t starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customer’s eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicle’s failure to run.'

While the two situations might seem similar, they have very different meanings that are important to a mechanic and can signal different problems calling for a variety of solutions.

'It’s important to note that a vehicle is an extremely complicated machine and can exhibit similar symptoms for a variety of reasons,' he said. 'That is why it’s important to first look at the type of ‘no start’ and then at the list of conditions that could be causing it in the first place.'
