problem #1

May 292005

Excursion 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles
Vehicle was involved N an accident due to brake failure. The ABS went out. When opened the hood for investigation the master cyclinder separted from the brake booster cylinder. No lock on bolt and the nut sheared itself off. Called Ford and left message. Had to put new transmission at 16,000 miles as well. Had 2 mechanics look at this and suggested Ford should take notice.
