Dropped it by the dealer for an oil change, tire rotation and 10K check-up. Should be good to go to Southern Utah next month for a week to 10 days.

Cruising to work the other day my truck started missing and lost most of its power. Limped 10 miles into the dealership. Truck died as I took my foot off the accelerator to turn into the parking lot. Left it in the middle. Turns out I have the famous 5.4 liter Ford timing chain problem. Tensioner lost oil pressure, chain jumped a few cogs on the timing gear and pretty much destroyed one side of the engine. Dealership quoted $7500.00 to replace the engine with a Ford remanufactured long block. Ouch!!! Did have 150,000 miles on it though.

What did you do to your Tow Vehicle today?

Filled up with diesel for 2.55/gallon at a Shell station nearby and then passed a Sunoco on the way home that had it for 2.47/gallon

Rotated and inspected the tires (found one nail in a tire, but it only entered the tread- didn't reach the belts, so no leak), and torqued lug nuts to specs. Inspected the brakes- all good (enough). Topped off the spare tire air pressure.

I might even wash it today. We'll see if I have the energy later on.

Got it back from the shop. A grinding noise started on the way home from work last week and I couldn't locate it. Shop found pinion bearing is shot. Told him to close it back up and took it home and parked in the backyard. $600 estimate. I think my season is over as my camping/dive trip next month just got canceled. Maybe I can do something in October.

I watched my odometer trip the 100,000 mile mark today. Not many miles for an 11 year old truck though. My work truck has 153,000 on it also a 04 Chevy. Both trucks at 4000 miles the oil is full on the stick and caramel colored, not black.

I previously posted I had my ignition switch replaced. It was just worn out after 9 years and at times it was difficult to get it to turn on. Then it hit me last night after I got in bed - What about the key fitting the driver's door lock? I have the fob and it opens the door fine, but nothing was ever said about changing the door lock. So when I got up a few minutes ago I went out and tried the new key in the driver's door and it opened fine.

How does this work? New ignition key and it works on the old lock in the door or did they change that lock too and I just didn't know it? I don't see a door lock on the parts list.

Help from those smarter than me.
