  15. Whose fault? Dealer or Tire store

    1) Did the “tire shop” guy have all of his teeth??? If not, my gut tells me to put the blame on him. 2) On the other axle …. Did the tire guy reuse the self galling throw away nut.??? If so, expect the same issue. 3) Run a dye nut over the threads and get 2 new nuts and call it a day. If...
  16. Dealer insists it’s 6 quarts for oil change on my 2.7L

    Its 7 quarts. I grilled my Service tech at my dealership. He said the oil level with the current dip still is well into the twists on the dip stick. (i.e. past the max fill hole) I even had the service writer contact Ford to verify that the correct dip stick level is past the max fill hole...

Just keep going up hill and review the trail maps… Incredible panoramic view of The Carson Valley and Lake Tahoe at the top… You have to hike that part. Another trail is Blackwood Canyon (West shore)… it hooks around past Ellis peak...
