  1. 2021 Peeling Paint Roof (My DIY Self Repair)

    Roofs appear to be the common spot in the rain channels. It got worse every time I'd wash the truck. I use a foam cannon to wash my truck but would have to use a regular hose/wash mit on the roof until I fixed it bc it'd peel so bad. I believe Ford classifies it as "perforation" in order to be...
  2. 2021 Peeling Paint Roof (My DIY Self Repair)

    Thanks man. Not just white trucks. Checked 3 trucks at work and 2 out of the 3 same issues. One blue and one Grey. Black truck looked fine for now.
  3. 2021 Peeling Paint Roof (My DIY Self Repair)

    Not after 36k they won't. I have premium care but since it wasn't rusting they won't.
  4. 2021 Peeling Paint Roof (My DIY Self Repair)

    Figured I'd share my experience doing a self repair to my 2021 F-150, XLT Sport 4wd, SCREW, 2.7l, Oxford White truck. A lot of people have the peeling paint up in the rain channels due to Fords piss poor QC and paint. It's not perfect by any means but cheaper than paying what I was quoted by...

  6. About done with Ford (Paint Peeling)

    Took care of it myself since Ford is complete trash. Wet sanded, wet sanded, and wet sanded some more. Put down some cleaner, primed, painted, clear coat, wet sanded some more, the compounded the roof. It didn't come out perfect by any means but better than the peeling paint. Good thing it's up...
  7. 2.7L Spark Plug Change (DIY)

    Hah yeah the price is unreal. But cheaper than letting a shop do it. I had no problem on passenger side really with a 9" extension. Driver side was a pain due to the wiring loom but overall not to bad.
  8. 2.7L Spark Plug Change (DIY)

    Just wanted to throw a little thread together for people who may not know how to do a spark plug change. F-150 2.7L, 4WD XLT Sport SCREW. Truck has 55k on the odometer. All the spark plugs were out of spec at .032" or greater. I noticed a little bit of a drop in MPG and an occasional rough...

    Been fighting with Ford since October 2023...they won't cover it. I'll be sanding down the paint with 3k and 4k sandpaper and painting it myself with some Oxford white paint and clear coating it then spending time to buff it smooth. Such bullshit that Ford takes our money yet fails to...

    Ford won't cover it as I'm past the 36k bumper warranty. The perforation aspect won't cover it as theres no holes in the body. Last month they said they can't even get me in for an estimate until March. Ford QC and CS is an absolute joke. They provide a garbage product and charge a premium...

    Lmao...that bot jumps in every thread. Headed to dealer on my way home from work. Just to see what they say. Then calling corporate. I'm just so sick of garbage quality and customer service. Hopefully they'll prove me wrong this time. Corporate will pull my file and instantly go "crap, not...

    I have the ESP on this truck...it doesn't cover paint.
  13. About done with Ford (Paint Peeling)

    Wastewater driver side went bad. It's starting to go again it showing the early signs like last time. I have the 125k extended warranty on this truck but it'll prob long gone by then. Drive it to the landfill and drop it off. Passenger seat rattling (when not occupied), dealer hears it but can't...

    2.5yrs...phew that's long term. The truck should have ZERO flaking at 2.5yrs old. This truck gets taken care of very well and consistently washed/waxed throughout year. This is flat out unacceptable
  15. About done with Ford (Paint Peeling)

    Ford won't step up to the normal consumer. My 2019 when my truck was in the shop over 70 days they refused rentals, wanted the loaner back. Found mold in the cab from water leak and once I got legal involved they took care of the issue ASAP and won my case against them. Then in shop for over 30...
  16. About done with Ford (Paint Peeling)

    Between my 2019 nightmare of a truck (cab leak, cracked in a body weld, transmission replaced at 37k, 5.0 sucking 3.5qts every 4k) and now my 2021 (turbo wastegste already replaced at 19k). My 2021 F150 now has paint peeling from the roof near the rain channel. Of course it happens 6 months...
  17. Oil Changes are a PITA with this engine

    Coming from a 2019 5.0 and a Dodge HEMI before that an oil change cain't get any easier than this 2.7. I like the location of the oil filter, zero oil spill and accessible (I'm short and can reach it). A scribe to remove the old o-rings and they come right off then slop on the ones that come...
  18. The Journey to 300K

    I'll be shocked if I get 200k out of a modern vehicle that is not a Honda/Toyota and I change my oil/fluids regularly etc. On my 2019 when I took legal litigation against FoMo. Multiple reps and the Field Service Engineer (FSE) I met with at the Ford dealer when my truck was in the shop for 90+...
