Hope you snapped a pic of that, such a photographically documented rarity could be worth money one day.
I'll have you know, it's almost time for the 5th oil change. :lol:Doesn't seem to be a problem for trucks that just sit in driveways. :mocking:

It would be right up there with the ivory bill woodpecker, bigfoot, UFOs, etc.,etc. :thumbup1gif: :lol:
Did Kenny or PJR832 pay you to say that? :lol:I saw him also when he drove it the other time.
Is setting the engine on fire one of Fords "Better Ideas" for a block heater?
It's damn good thing I don't drive mine. :think:Another recall that could cause a fire is the seat belt pretensioner.
I think dieselshadow has posted in the past about living in Alaska where most all vehicles have block heaters. In the towns there were cords on all the parking meters so you could plug in while doing your business in town.I live a sheltered life down here just below the mason dixon line where temps are mostly moderate (thankfully) and I never realized they put block heaters on gas engines. Of course I know about block heaters on diesels, but never heard of them for gassers. :dunno: I guess that's one new thing I learned today and since that is my limit I can go back to bed. :good2:
Is that to warm the oil to minimize wear on start up? I'll check back for the answer tomorrow and that will check off tomorrows Learn a New Thing requirement. :mocking:
I hope they fired the bean counter that decided to save $.02 per truck by eliminating the dab of grease.
Yes, this is true. Everywhere you go in Alaska, it's very common to see "Head Bolt Outlets" in front of homes and businesses. You'll see either a fence of sorts with only a top rail that has outlets all along it, outlets every so often along side a building, or even concrete posts with outlets on them.I think dieselshadow has posted in the past about living in Alaska where most all vehicles have block heaters.

Because the ones offered by GM and RAM don't count?That's three, we just need one more witness to step forward and we can verify his need for a 5th oil change. :lol:
Honestly though, leave it to Ford to put a block heater on a gas engine. :banghead:
