Took a long weekend road trip to Missouri.....managed 17.1 mpg highway

With the warmer temps, the catch can is nearly empty..........seems like the colder temps produce a ton a moisture in the CAC

Got back last night and drop the truck off at a local dealer to have the clunking and creaking noise looked at.......

It will be interesting to see what they find..........I have the Premium warranty till May of 2019, that has a $100 deductible

Third dealer was a hit...……….no issues with any of my mods and found (and fixed) a few things, all for $100

The truck will be done this evening or tomorrow morning, the latest

The multi-function switch was faulty and replaced, to cure the ghost wipers

They found a bad ball joint (I believe the lower on the driver side)

They are also performing a TSB for rear pinion/rear driveshaft issue

The dealership called back and said I need front and rear brake pads, ASAP

The truck has 51,000 miles on it?!

My one ton Dodge went 75,000 miles before the front rotors warped and there was still a decent amount of pad life left

Oh well, for $120 they are doing the rear brakes (new pads, rotors turned)

They wanted $450 for front rotors and pads...…..no thanks, I will do that myself this weekend

I got around 60k out of my front brakes before I realized the pads brakes where metal to metal. Rears are fine so far with 70k

meh.

my in laws subaru needed pads and rear rotors at 31K mile. Front pads needed replaced too.

I really think the new shit is way harder on the rear brakes for some reason.

I did the rears on my wagon and the service count was 4 for the rear and only 1 for the front. So 4 sets to 1.
I don't know if they're using the rears harder because we've got ABS to keep it from locking up or what, but it's a trend I've noticed on everything newer.

I get the truck back from the dealer, with a fault code? WTF

B10F1

I know for a fact it wasn't there when it was dropped off

I cleared it out, see what happens


Here is the info on the TSB 14-0090 that was performed:

Some 2011-2014 F-150 vehicles built on 1/1/2011 and through 4/1/2014 may exhibit an intermittent click or snap-type noise from the rear axle on initial light acceleration from a stop while in drive or reverse. The noise may also occur on light acceleration after changing direction from drive to reverse, or reverse to drive.

Fault code stayed away, after I cleared it...…..

Going on a 500 mile trip next Saturday...……..Lake of the Ozarks bound

MPGs have been good, a solid 17.5

Ozarks was good, but the weather wasn't

On the trip down, used around 3/4 of a tank and averaged 19.5

This was with two adults, a kid, three full coolers and two storage totes full of food

I filled up at a Cenex gas station on 54, and averaged 17.2 on the way home

Only one full cooler...…….why such a difference? Different gas blend?

My rear shocks are shot...…….I removed the bottom bolt on each and could collapse them with very little effort

Ford quality, again...……..shot at 55,000 miles

What are some good options?

What year Raptor rear shocks will fit?

I don’t think 55k is a bad life for a factory shock

I run Fox 2.0’s on my F150 and like them so far. Have about 50k on them.

Edit, not the piggy back style., this style.

The FOX 2.0s do seem nice......I definitely want shocks with polyurethane bushings, nothing to rust and seize up

FOX 2.0: $279 pair

ICON 2.0; $159 each

The Icons allow for up to a 2" rear lift and the FOX are only for 1" rear lift

I was hoping to find a set of good Ford Raptor rear shocks...…...they will fit, right? Year specific or?

I thought they changed a shock bolt size in some year Raptor trucks

I just put bilsteins all the way around and it soaks up the rail road crossings and other larger bumps in the road. I also raised the front .75" with the shocks and it sits nicely.

I put a set of 2011 raptor take offs on my 2016. I had them rebuilt and charged to 200 instead of 250 due to the alum body on mine. I also raised the rear with 1in block...they matched very well on and especially off road with my icon 2.5 in front

Just knocked out another oil change and installed 6 new spark plugs

Mileage is still up......but the constant knocking in the suspension or drivetrain is back

Coming up on 58,000 miles, so the Durtracs have around 41,000 on them.

I would guess by next summer they will need to be replaced

I bet it's sucking in moisture. Get a catch can

I empty 3 ounces from my truck in the cold weather, every 5 days

How many miles is that?

I bought a used Ecoboost expedition for the wife, and installed the jlt passenger side catch can. I'm curious to compare with what I'll find.

Maybe 150-200 miles

Warmer temps the catch barely collects anything and I empty it once a month

Once the temps drop into the 40s and under, it fills up fast

Not necessarily related specifically to EcoBoost but we are not getting heat in these cooler mornings. 2015 Navigator with 3.5 EcoBoost. Anyone have thermostat issues before 45k miles?

It was interesting and a quick diagnosis. Time will tell what we are dealing with. I was down a little over two quarts of coolant. No leaks that I can find. Obviously we'll be monitoring the coolant level religiously for a while.

Amazing that if you have enough coolant, you can get heat....
