Re: Powertrain Problem

It's OK guys, it's making a bit of sense now thanks to Nereus and caller. I'll find out for sure on Monday. If it makes any sense to me, I'll report back Monday evening. JMHO the scam merchants were removed from Ford about 3 years ago - my trust has been restored.

Re: Powertrain Problem

There's no chance of her missing a trip to Ford - her favourite eatery in Hua Hin (maybe Thailand/the World) is next door.

Re: Powertrain Problem

I think it had done less than 40K Km when it was changed. I'm now on 89K. :laugh: I don't think a solicitor's letter to Mrs BB would help. Because of my attitude with Ford previously she just assumes I'm having a go at them, and starts defending them. Yes, she's making their life easy, but the 'new'...

Re: Powertrain Problem

I would be a bit concerned with this statement. Have they in fact already fitted either a new turbo, or overhauled the existing unit? I did query this at the time, and they produced the old turbo for me to see. Prior to the overhaul of the local Ford dealer, I too would have been very suspicious. H...

Re: Powertrain Problem

Thank you, that is re-assuring. The hose was definitely the first thing they looked at. They basically said they could do the quick fix, which would just be the hose, or the long fix which would give me the equivalent of a 'new' engine. I took it from that there was an underlying problem, and someth...

Re: Powertrain Problem

Thank you Nereus, most of that made sense to me :oops: It certainly fits with the mechanic's area of investigation. It was dark, so couldn't see much. However, the engine didn't quit, I pulled over and stopped myself both times. Regarding the fuel tank, I agree, lost in translation. I think they've ...

Re: Powertrain Problem

Problem is resetting it, won't fix it, and I'm not clever enough to do it myself.

They've identified the problem, and it should have been fixed already. Problem is, nobody can tell me in English what the fault is.

Re: Powertrain Problem

Yes, and it has been used, but it's the lack of English that I'm struggling with. They tell Mrs BB, but her interpretation is not helping me.

Re: Do the Blue Buses Still run Hua Hin/Bangkok

I think the nicer airport service and Sombat Tours service must have had a significant impact.

Powertrain Problem

Before I start, this is in now way a complaint, I'm just hoping one of you mechanically minded people can enlighten me. As many of you will remember, when I moved to Thailand, I bought a Ford Ranger. I was unlucky in that it had a faulty turbo, but that was eventually changed with days remaining on ...

Re: Clean Hua Hin's beaches movement - Trash Hero

I'd guess a local chapter. The Hua Hin Heroes have more than enough to keep them busy here.
