Rode with an Engineer today..

As many of you know I have been having a heck of a time with my truck pulling to the left while braking. After numerous trips to the dealer, they finally sent out an engineer.

He hooked his laptop up to the truck and we went for a test drive. The truck consistently pulled and his computer could tell that the left rear wheel was spinning 3-5mph slower than the rest while braking. He said he would need to put it on the rack and further inspect it but that he would start with replacing the remaining calipers(one had been replaced), rotors and pads. I also mentioned the truck has wind noise. He asked have they replaced your mirrors yet.... He is going to take care of that too. Nice guy, much better attitude than most people at Ford I have talked too. He wanted to know the names of the service reps/managers who were not helpful as well. Someone maybe getting a reaming.


Truck should be done in a couple of days. I will post an update when I know something.

Good luck!

It seems like Ford is getting to the bottom of some of the known issues, finally.

I'm an Equipment Engineer and wish I could ride with a Ford Engineer with all their diagnostic equipment. He'd probably find me annoying by asking too many questions. My "Real World" data would prove interresting, pulling a 30' travel trailer with 7 people in 115°F Arizona heat in the mountains.
On a side note, my wife used to work for a Blood Bank and Ford would provide them Escorts for delivery use. The hoods would be locked shut and the cars outfitted with data aquisition equipment. Ford would let them run them for a while and swap out with a different vehicle.

How does your 07 do with that kind of load in 115degree heat, pulling a 30 foot trailer??

I bet it would be cool to hook up the test instraments during that stress test!

All seemed fine. Engine temperature never moved and I had enough power to leave the A/C on all the time. I can't say enough good about the 6 speed transmission, those two extra gears really help maximize the towing performance.
I have another post regarding measuring transmission temperatures, which is really what I'd like to know. I'm not sure if our engines measure engine oil temperature or not, but that would be something to watch too. My real only complaint is with the A/C at idle and low speeds, but then again I haven't taken it into the dealer yet to let them try to fix.
