I had a coupon for a FREE oil change I won at a cruise-in so I took the wife's car in to get the tires rotated and the oil changed since we are headed to Oklahoma in a couple weeks for our grandsons graduation. The owner came and got me and wanted to show me what they found before they started pulling the wheels off for the rotation. I couldn't believe what I saw. This was done by the local Ford dealer where we use to go to. We were there some months ago for a tire rotation and some other work and they left the car a mess and the air filter cover was bouncing around under the hood. This wasn't the first time we've had issues with them so we stopped going there and started taking it to the shop I take my car to. $3 a pop for each new lug not. The new ones are one piece chrome.

It is a ford they do that. :manner: I worked at Sears back in the 70s and had them install new tires on my 1970 Chevy 1/2 ton and on the way to work the next day the left front wheel fell off, this was the habit to check balance I had taken the truck up to 70 miles an hour on the high way with my wife and son it. Then the next morning the wheel fell off.

Had similar problem not to long ago. Friend called me from church that he had a flat tire so I loaded the floor jack and took off. There were TWO different size lug nuts on it and two were rounded off.......yep, can you say Ferd dealer!!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
