Service Date

Services Performed
  • Driving the vehicle into the shop we verified exhaust noise and felt a strange vibration when driving. Hoisted for inspection. Exhaust pipe had blown apart right in front of the rear catalytic converter, appears that the converter itself is plugged and coming apart. While underneath we noted that the motor mounts have come apart and engine is now resting on the left front CV axle flange at the transaxle. Recommend replacing the rear catalytic converter and engine/transmission mounts. Ok'd to replace the motor mounts. Once we got the engine in alignment we found only the upper mount bad. Engine did damage the left front axle and the axle seal is leaking. Recommend replacing the left front axle and seal. .
  • Installed new upper engine mount. .

Services Performed
  • Scanned the modules for codes and received P1450 (unable to bleed fuel down). We tested the individual components of the evaporative system and found the vapor management valve underhood bad. Researching the failed part we noted that Ford had issued a recall (18S32) on it. Contacted Ford who states that on June 28, 2019 the recall was performed at Frontier Ford. The upgraded part also needed a software update. Recommend replacing the valve before diagnosis continues. Ok'd to proceed. After repairs the vehicle started properly. We cleared the code and test drove without incident. .
  • Installed new vapor management valve. .
  • Removed the lower cowling for access and found the washer pump is leaking from where is mounts into the reservoir. .
