My grandma made an appointment for 1pm at the dealership to get the oil changed in her focus since it's still under warranty. We dropped the car off at noon, got a hot dog the dealership, looked around at some cars, went to the service lobby at 1:15, the guy comes in at 1:30 and says it will be ready in about fifteen minutes. Almost an hour later the car was ready. Really, almost two hours to change the oil!!! I installed the rack and pinion, outer tie rod ends, and bled my power steering faster than that.

But you didn't have a line of cars you had to fix before yours

most of the time they will tell you it will be a while due to the line of cars waiting

maybe he forgot maybe they were lazy maybe they were slammed, or waiting on a part who knows

I saw 3 f-150s go in for the same service and leave in that 1 1/2 hour time, the owner of one was sitting next to us, they came in and told him how dirty his filter was and they installed a new one etcetera etcetera your keys are in the truck, it's ready. They didn't tell us a damn thing.

pretty much. Was pulling out of a field onto the road in second gear (didn't want the tires to spin out) and my friends dogs surrounded my truck. Long story short didn't want to kill his dogs and didn't realize I wasn't off the clutch. Started revving like the clutch was 100% gone so i pulled over and let it rest for ten minutes. Thought I was gonna have to be towed home. But I Drove home fine with no revs or grinding but clutch feels way off. Driven it 40 miles since and it runs fine aside from the clutch feeling off. Gonna replace it, I can tell it's had 90% of the life sucked out of it

At points, I think women are gods gift to man... But when you run into women like I do, you begin to think quite the opposite. I hate getting led on.

Step on gas, rpm's go up before truck starts going faster, clutch is slipping. Easier to see on a hill.
