7 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR CAR CHILL THIS SUMMER

 

 

FORD SENIOR MASTER TECHNICIAN JIM TWITCHELL ANSWERS SOME COMMON AC QUESTIONS—BECAUSE SUNNY-DAY DRIVING SHOULDN’T MAKE YOU SWEAT.

Question No. 1: Why is my AC blowing lukewarm air?

A: Your vehicle’s cooling system can affect your AC performance. So first, make sure your car isn’t overheating. Check the level of your radiator coolant, which helps cool your engine. If it’s low, you may have a leak and should have your cooling system tested. Then look to make sure you haven’t picked up something on the road—including but not limited to a plastic bag—that is sticking to the front of the car and obstructing airflow into the vehicle.
Question No. 2: Why is my AC making a clicking or rumbling sound?

 

A: Anytime you hear an odd noise, you’ll want to have it checked out by your local Ford Dealer Service Center. Rumbling may indicate a problem with a bearing in either the AC system or in another area of the vehicle. Clicking may indicate that the AC compressor is cycling on and off too quickly because of a refrigerant leak. Refrigerant—not to be confused with coolant—is a gas used to make your AC blow cold and should be added only by a trained technician.
Question No. 3: I see some cracks in a hose connected to my AC system. What should I do?

 

A: Hoses can develop cracks over time due to age, how often you drive, environmental conditions and whether you park inside or outside. Minor cracks in a hose could be the first sign of a leak in your closed AC system. Look for signs of moisture or dirt—grime from the road often accumulates on areas of the hose where moisture is present. Have your hose checked out at a Ford Dealer Service Center.
Question No. 4: I see some small puddles of fluid on the ground. Does this indicate an AC problem?

 

A: What color is the fluid? If the puddle is black, it’s likely an oil leak. If it’s colorful—orange, green or yellow—the coolant may be leaking. If it’s clear, like water, the AC condenser may simply be dripping condensation. While condensation is not a problem, leaks should be checked out by a Ford technician.
Question No. 5: How do I test my AC’s air temperature?

 

A: Some people simply use a standard thermometer to check the temperature of the airflow. When testing, use the center register, not the side registers. Please note that the humidity level outside can dramatically affect the AC air temperature, so you may want to measure the temperature several days in a row to account for fluctuating humidity. In the end, though, it’s all about you feel. Are you comfortable? Great. Do you suddenly sense that the AC isn’t doing its usual job? Then it’s time for a checkup.
Question No. 6: How can I get rid of the musty smell in my vehicle when I turn on the AC?

 

A: An odor can be caused by normal condensation that hasn’t dried out in the evaporator core of the AC unit. If this moisture sits, it can develop a musty smell. Your Ford Dealer Service Center can deodorize your AC system from within the core to eliminate the odor.
Question No. 7: How can I make my AC’s airflow stronger?

 

A: A dirty cabin air filter can sometimes cause weak AC flow. Air moves through this filter for both heating and air conditioning, so dust gradually accumulates and then the filter must be replaced. A visual inspection of the cabin air filter is part of Ford’s The Works Vehicle Checkup, which is generally recommended about every 5,000 miles. (Check your owner’s manual for the recommendation for your model, make and year.) The checkup includes a synthetic-blend oil change, tire rotation and pressure check, brake inspection, multi-point inspection, fluid top-off, battery test, filter check, and belts/hoses check. With regular inspection and occasional maintenance of your AC system, you should be able to cruise through summer in total comfort.

Ford-Pettys-Garage-Build-Limited-Edition-Mustang-GT

Petty’s Garage is a high-performance speed shop in North Carolina, offering a spectacular lineup of various performance vehicles. Originally opening with the idea that the shop would restore race car chassis’ from owner Richard Petty’s private collection, the shop now helps customers upgrade their current vehicle or will even work with them on a project from scratch. After the company received a massive amount of positive feedback about their Mustang GT at the SEMA show, Ford Motor Company and Petty’s Garage are partnering up to build an all-new fastback, limited-edition Mustang GT.

Petty’s Garage and Ford will be joining forcing to build two versions of Petty’s Mustang GT; a Stage 1 model that is limited to 100 units and a Stage 2 that is limited to an exclusive 43 units. Both of the fastback Mustang GT’s will house a 5.0-liter engine that will boost an insane 627-horsepower, 20-inch Petty’s Garage HRE FlowForm wheels, and a MagnaFlow exhaust system. Stage 1 and Stage 2 Petty’s Garage Mustang GTs will be customized with a variety of visually pleasing and performance-enhancing features. The front and rear fascias will both have unique new looks, displaying some of the Mustang GT’s prominent new features like the showcased race-inspired spoiler. Inside the Mustang will be embroidered head restraints, floor mats, and Richard Petty’s own signature on the dashboard.

Stage 1 Mustang GTs will be available in any color, including all unique bodywork painted to match. Stage 2 will include all of the same features at Stage 1, but will offer customers a massive brake upgrade, a complete Petty’s Garage two-tone paint job, and HRE three-piece forged-aluminum wheels. Believe us, Stage 2 is a model fit for a rockstar; just ask AC/DC’s lead singer Brian Johnson. He could not resist Ford & Petty’s Garage limited-edition Mustang GT, identifying it as “one of the best cars he’s ever driven”.

Ford Adds 1,550 Jobs to Meet High Demand of 2015 F-150

fordpicnomore

Ford Motor Company has added 1,550 jobs to meet the high demand for the 2015 F-150. After an insanely strong month of sales in January, Ford set out to add more jobs to support production of the all-new F-150. This January the F-Series saw the best sales month since 2004, where the 2015 F-150 had a sitting time of just 12 days on dealer lots and quickly became the Ford vehicle with the fastest turnover time ever.

On February 5th, Ford announced that they would be adding 1,550 jobs to the Kansas City Assembly, Dearborn Stamping, Dearborn Diversified, and Sterling Axle facilities to meet the high demand for the 2015 F-150. The new jobs will be added during the first quarter of 2015, helping Ford reach an entry-level allowance outlined in the 2011 UAW-Ford collective bargaining agreement. As a result of this, the first 300 to 500 “new traditional” employees will transition from their entry-level wage to a higher hourly wage.

The 1,550 jobs will be split amongst the four facilities with 900 being allocated to Kansas City Assembly, 500 will be split between Dearborn Stamping and Dearborn Diversified, and 150 will go to Sterling Axle. Ford Motor Company is thrilled that the demand for the toughest, smartest, and most capable F-150 has allowed them to provide more jobs within communities around the country.
