The converter bracket broke on my car (the one welded to the converter)... SVT just released a bracket to fix this part, but its the upper engine-side bracket, not the converter piece
.
After trying to get Ford to replace my converter under the 8/80 warranty (they won't) I ordered the bracket only to find that its wrong.
Why can't Ford pull its head out of its ........

Try another dealer, from the sounds of it service and know-how varies GREATLY from one dealer to the next. Do you have a SVT dealer near by?

Yeah, I have one 25 miles from the house. It is just frustrating. And you wonder why Ford's stock is trading at junk-bond levels.

I don't wonder. I know why.

Yeah... I have owned many Fords but am just about fed up with fixing them & the lack of customer support.
1996 Escort - heater core, A/C evaporator, blower motor, AC blower switch. Blocked evap. drain flooded the passenger compartment and ruined the carpet with rust.
1991 Mustang LX - automatic trans, A/C evaporator, drier, compressor, psi hose, suction hose, convertible top, timing belt & all intake-related sensors, computer, and radio.
1988 Turbo T-Bird - driver's side window motor, T-5 transmission, radio, radio, electric struts, fuel pump, differential pinion bearing, automatic lamp assembly, fog lamp assemblies
1997 F-150 - wiper switch, power drivers seat, ignition coil
2004 F-150 - 3rd brake light assembly, 6-CD radio

2000 Honda Accord - over 90,000 k miles - nothing.


The last two trucks total over $40 grrr at the dealership that refused to cover the warranty (Champion Ford, Katy TX).

I would try another dealer if you can. I would think one of them would fix it under warranty.
