Uh-oh!

Went out last night to pull my truck into the garage and found a huge pool of fluid on the ground. Looks like oil but it is positions on the passenger side and under where the transmission dip stick is. It was after hours at the Ford dealers but I left a message. Hoping to hear from them by 8:00.

I will be sooooo angry if this cannot be fixed by Friday morning. I already missed the new year's rally.

Wish me luck and speedy AND inexpensive repairs.

Oh NO!

AirstreamGypsy,

Sounds like the seal around the dipstick, where it enters the pan, which is no big deal. Lets keep our fingers crossed that this is the case!

My truck is still at the Ford dealer in Las Cruces, NM.
Transmission front pump seal leaking, and replacement of 3 rear wheel studs which sheered off on I-10.

Hope we can BOTH still make it!

Michael

Michael,
Your luck has not been great either. If I recall you had to make repairs on the way to Burning Man.

WE WILL, both be at the rally! "Power of Positive Thinking."

Found someone to take me in around noon. Then I'll know.

Thanks!
Suzanne

We're staying in Phoenix now and expect to leave for Cottonwood on Friday morning, only a few hours drive. Weather here has been great for the past couple days.

Yay!

As I was turning the corner into the car repair shop it hit me. My neighbor, in his 86 ford f-15 had been idling in the drive for quite some time prior to my parking in the same spot. Hmmmmm, Yup good news! It wasn't my oil. But just to be on the safe side I had them check everything and when they found out I was going away suggested a "trip check". I like them.....

I did have a small leak in the transfer case that they took care of.

So, I'm off on Friday morn.

See Ya!

Michael, Hope you're doing okay with your repairs...

The nice thing about Dead Horse is that all the spots are in a circle around the Ramada and the campfire.

There will be plenty of spots. The later you arrive, the more of a challange it is to park.
