How come Ford does not require an immediate bailout in contrast to the other Big 2?
I understand that Ford will obviously be affected if the other two go under but is Ford more diversified than then the other two that it has other sources of income?
Perhaps they are better organized financially?
Honestly Ford may have been the only one to see the market and bank crash coming. Either that or it was a huge lucky break. Either way they benefit (or likely suffer less) while everybody including foreign companies suffer.
A few years ago they mortgaged everything they own to get some extra cash just in case.
Chrysler was still owned by Daimler who had no interest in creating a profitable company so even if they saw it coming they did nothing. They just used Chrysler profits from the 90′s to rebuild Mercedes.
Honda, Toyota, VW, and Hyundai are all in the process of building new plants in the US yet stuck idling the plants they have because of low demand. They obviously didn’t see it coming either.
Ford Ranger: How do I reset the computer for the check engine light?
I recently replaced my EGR valve in my ’95 Ford Ranger and yet the check engine light still comes on. I unhooked the battery cables for 15 minutes which caused the light to go off, but it came back on after about an hour of driving. What else is there to do?
Well, since you’ve already installed the EGR valve you’ve puchased from Auto Zone, the option of returning the part for a refund is no longer viable. But, I would bet the farm your EGR valve WASN’T the problem. More likely it was the DPFE sensor that needed replaced, NOT the EGR valve. This sensor is either an aluminum bodied rectangular shaped sensor with two rubber hoses and a three wire electrical connector connected to it, or a black pastic sensor if it has already been replaced before. This is a VERY commonly failing part on ALL Ford products. You would need to purchase it from the Ford dealer parts department. Just ask for part number F77Z-9J460-AB at the counter to get the part you need. Hope this helps.

Does Ford let companies with fleets do their own warranty work?
Some companies, with large fleets of vehicles, have their own service and maintenance departments. Does Ford Motor Company have a program set up for these companies to perform their own warranty repairs? If so, where can I find more information about that program?
To my knowledge, NO. Since the builder is fully responsible for the defect, it must be corrected by the same, and to document the repair or recall of the vehicle. This way it insures that the work was done to the manufacturer’s standards and the proper parts were installed. Even companies like Hertz and Avis have to take cars back to the local dealers when a Recall is issued and a warranty problem arises.
I know this because of Avis is being sued by a family for NOT getting a recalled vehicle into a Ford center, and the car went up in flames killing the person renting the defective car. Avis knew that the car was under Recall and just didn’t want to take the car out of service because it would lose too much money from it’s rental value.
