Amazes me how people want to try to blame pcv, or whatever. Maybe the engine is running perfectly alright and maintenance has been kept up properly. What will the excuses be then? Folks, sometimes products are not what they claim. Car makers count on you to go to the extreme on fluids etc.. It means a repeat customer? This is America - Home of the 100,000 mile cars and trucks not Europe. Take an American car engine apart, then take a German car engine apart you can clearly see the German car is far better quality. We americans make cookie cutter cars. **** , Japanese automobile plant line supervisiors wear white gloves around checking out quality down the line and talking to the assemblers. That is a lesson we need to learn. What made me really mad is one the guys at my job worked at the Ford plant in Claycomo, Missouri. He told all of us at work to never buy a ford made on friday thru monday. That is when most of the illegal drug users- car, truck assemblers are either stoned or recovering from being stoned. He said, many people are terminated from ford weekly, monthly due to dirty UA's. Drug use produces mismatched wiring, components not being connected etc... As far as line supervisors - no colleges or management skills for the most part. I knew on of their Product developement Engineers. He showed me the new Blackwood Edition pick up before it was made available to the public. He told me they (Ford) did not make the bed of the truck, a private company did. The cost is $18,000 per truck bed! Now that is idiotic to say the least. I'am no expert but, that bed was not worth over $3,000 to $5,000 at the most. Way over priced. I love America but, we need a wake up call.
