CAR TALK

Subscriber onlyDEAR CAR TALK: My husband and I grew up in "Ford People" families. We personally have been Ford customers for over 20 years, buying nine different Ford vehicles in that time. My husband took care of each of these vehicles meticulously, including our current vehicle, the 2012 Platinum Expedition, following the instruction manual explicitly and having no problems to speak of with any of the nine vehicles. Then, about four weeks ago, the Expedition started making a knocking noise. Since it's still under warranty, I took it to the dealership I purchased it from. Imagine how alarmed I was when the service adviser called us and said that they didn't know exactly what was wrong with my vehicle, but that it was our fault! Initially, they said they needed to establish that we'd performed proper maintenance. We told them we absolutely had, and provided receipts for oil and filters, and my husband's oil-change log. Then they called back and said that the fuel injectors were leaking, putting fuel in the cylinders, and when the pistons come up, it bends the rod. Then they called and said they weren't going to explore that issue any further because an engineer came in, looked at it with the valve cover off and said that there was sludge in the rocker arms.
