    Hi Pete,

    I did bring it to East Bay Ford. They replaced the CAC tube under warranty (+$100 deductible). I've put on about 200 miles since. I crawled underneath last weekend to drain/fill the tranny fluid and noticed that there was fresh engine oil pooling where the engine & tranny meets. It's a difficult to see exactly where because there are little droplets spread all around. From what I've heard, the rear main seal rarely leaks on the 6, but then again, I've also read posts from folks who had it replaced.

    Anyway, I called EB Ford and left a message with their service dept answering machine. That was 3 weeks ago and didn't get a call back. I haven't try calling again. I'm not totally impressed with them. I asked how much it would have costed for the CAC tube replacement out of pocket and the service writer told me $650. Now, I'm no diesel expert by a stretch, but common, $650? That doesn't sound right to me.

    Hey Jack,

    East Bay Ford trucks. On Filbert? If so they have been there forever. I would think it would be a good choice. Have no personal experience with them. Also they specialize in diesels of all makes.
