And to satisfy the kool-aid drinking brand loyalists out there, this is about a Ford engineer. Like on everything else related to vehicles, you always find some good and some bad. The GM engineers that came out with that awesome rear shock mount design on our trucks is definately one of the WTF items to pop up from time to time. The WTF item from Ford has to do with the fuel filter on the CVPI. The good thing is I finally found out how the fuel line came apart several months ago. Last night (Friday) I gassed up at one of our lesser used tanks and soon after, I was on the jets going to backup another officer. Well I noticed something wrong cause I wasn't bouncing off the governor like usually. First fix was to go to another tank and drop some injector cleaner which I found out didn't work. So today I roll into Vatozone and pick up a fuel filter. Now you may ask why and it's easy, our shop is a secured facility these days and we lost our access after one of our ex-trustees had a little too much fun in there. So here I am on a Saturday, our shop locked, which has the tools and filters needed for the job. I went into the office, did my paperwork, then hauled butt home and changed out so I can change out the fuel filter. During my oh so lovely time spent underneath my car, I found out that the fuel filter, which I would assume would screw in like our trucks, actually has rubber hoses that push on, and these little plastic clips that slide into the end of the hose and hold it onto the fuel filter. These little clips break when you take it apart, and the new clips that come with the filter barely fit, which meant I broke the SOBs putting everything back together. At least the fuel line held together for tonight. I'll get into our shop on Monday and get me new clips, maybe some screw clamps and fix that BS for good. And by the way, I'm probably looking forward to the tank getting drained. The damn car got so bad tonight that I voluntarily took myself off traffic stop mania in case I stopped a Yugo and it ran from me, I was afraid of losing it.
