Your tellin me, worst part is I just bought the car less than 4 months ago didn't show up on inspection of vehicle. Not a happy camper. My first chance to get away for the wknd this whole past year and new car dies on way home friday. My 1998 mountaineer cost me a fortune and then the repairs until tranny went that was last straw. Loyal to ford but after this I don't think I'll do it again. Thanx for your answer have someone comeing to fix today hopefully.
