Default Help!! I'm getting jerked around by ford.

So my fairly new ranger (08 with 25500) starts make a noise that sounds like a cross between wore out bearings and tire wear so I think nothing of it because I had just rotated the tires when the noise showed. A few weeks later I notice a thunking noise when you turn the wheels about half way to lock, very repeatable. This makes me think "bad bearings or hubs." I take it in and they replace the IAC and no fix. I take it to someone that dealer fired (neighbor) and he figures it out in 5 min. Its the power steering pressure switch making the IAC open and close. So by now the dealer has talked to ford and ford considers it a normal noise and will not fix it. Its bullshit!! The noise is getting more frequent and goes away completely when the switch is unpluged. My opinion its not normal and shouldn't be making a noise loud enough to hear over the radio. Any suggestions??

Don't assume the dealer talked to Ford. They maybe just be blowing smoke to get you to go away. Call the Ford Customer Service number in your manual and complain directly.

i'm confused (as usual) you took it to a dealer today and they called ford, so ford denied that there is a problem?
thats stupid. when my 2001 was new, i was always taking it in for them to look at or fix things. they told me that if it's under 3 years or 36,000 miles, and if anything was broken or needed replacing, they would make it right. Hell, they even replaced one of my fog light bulbs free of charge because it was under warranty.

Take it to a different dealer. I know I had this problem with the GM dealer back home, formerly Gootee Chevrolet, we called em Gooffee Chevrolet lol. Then they went out of business and a different dealer bought them out (Titus Will). Now I go to that dealer again, because the dealership that bought them (Titus Will) was the same one I left Goofee for lol
