CAC hose and Recall

I took my 2005 PSD in yesterday to have the 05E15 recall, and I also asked them to fix whatever it is thats blowing oil all over the inside of my hood. When I get the truck back today, they tell me that the CAC tube is fine and that the oil thats everywhere is normal. They didnt even clean the crap off. What do I need to say or do to get this fixed???

Re: CAC hose and Recall

I seriously doubt that blowing oil all over is normal. Be nice and ask them to explain how blowing oil is normal. For example, my truck has 10k on it (05) and there is not a drop of oil blowing anywhere. My 01 would leak out the CAC tubes and needed to be cleaned - never had oil on the hood though.

I would be interested in knowing why they think it is normal - is there another dealer around that can assist you rather than this one?

Re: CAC hose and Recall

FMC says its not normal. Dealer blowing smoke up your ... Talk to SMgr. If no satisfaction, call FMC & file complaint. # is in your owners guide book.

My CAC tube leaking, dripping oil & other o.leaks. Repaired under warrant. Dealer even steam cleaned my engine. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Good luck!

I had the same leak and it was repaired under warranty. The fact that these trucks are so complicated and there seem to be so many unreliable dealership repair shops is going to kill Ford in this market. At least the dealership I'm going to realizes when there is a problem and does their best to correct it, and I'm thankful for that. When I hear stories like this it just amazes me. How can someone look at you with a straight face and tell you it's normal to spray oil all over the inside of the hood. Find another dealer fast...

Re: CAC hose and Recall

I had this happen twice over about 6 months. Both times the dealer replaced the CAC tube and cleaned up the hood to the point of it looking like it never happened, all under warranty. Looks like the second fix worked.

Your dealer SUCKS and I would let Ford know and I would let the dealer know that they lost your business. If they won't fix this simple item what will happen on something major? When I take my truck in for an warranty repair I think the dealers mechanic should be proactive and give my truck the once over. It should not fall on me to have to hold their hand.

Folks deserve to have a basic level of compitant(sp) service. Sadly today you have to be on top of your game to get it. MOVE ON, there are good dealers out there you just have to find them.
