  5. Article On Torque Wrench Accuracy

    I thought I would pass this on because breaking off a bolt is always a pain in the rear. I worked in a calibration lab for many years. Many years ago I was listening to a morning talk show by and for auto mechanics and the general public I was shocked when a caller asked for a place where he...

  12. What Does "Dumped" Mean Regarding Exhaust?

    Yesterday I hear the best sounding 2021 5.0 single cab truck ever. I chased him to ask what mufflers he had. I finally caught him at a stop light and he said it was stock but he "dumped" it. Before he could elaborate the light went green. Was he saying he installed cut outs? Trust me it was the...

    I can't get an inspection sticker because my 2021 F150 XL 5.0 computer will not communicate with the other computers. I went to two different shops to get it inspected with the same problem detected. Anyone else have this happen? It goes to the dealer tomorrow.

  15. I Can't Buy The Wheels I Wanted

    The new six bolt wheels on my 2021 F150 XL have eliminated my idea of going with black old fashion style rims with baby moon hub caps and red-lined tires. I was trying to create a 1950's look as opposed to the lowered look running 20 inch wheels like everyone else in the country does. Sad...

If applying wax by hand, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use a clean soft foam pad to apply the wax to the entire vehicle...
  18. Fibre Glass Beds?

    Saw a video of a wreck this morning on the local news involving a very late model F150 and the bed appeared to be 100% fiberglass. I never knew that to be the case. I can't believe any maker would do that.

  20. No Catalytic Converter Sheilds For Ford Trucks

    I have looked everywhere in Harris County for a place that sells sheilds for cat converters with zero results. All are for Tundras and Toyota cars.
