    I was just thinking that, lessons learned years ago was a good external oil cooler.
    put coolant through that ZF / 6R80 and it's a lot of money to fix...completely avoidable.

    I know someone who had this happen to their car.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    In the media statement, Ford seems to make it sound optional for owners of these cars to have their dealer investigate the issue. Seems like an odd and passive approach given the risk to the engine.

    Bahahaha. So they haven't learned from the Focus debacle. Lesson One. Place head up arse. Lesson Two. All will be good until head comes out of arse for air.

    These kind of things, including exhaust manifold etc makes you wonder how far down the track they got with S550 Development before they gave in to offering it in RHD doesnt it...
