South Jersey SVT Service Center

Which south jersey dealership are truely SVT Certified Service Centers. Seems like the ford website dealer locater isnt that accurate. I just want my car checked for any possible TSB. But the dealerships all have the same reply. Cannot release this information....and cannot do anything untill we due a $105 diagnostics. I am a rookie, first car i have ever truely owned outside of parents. Love the thing and want to avoid future problems. Any input out there?

do you have a warranty? b/c... with that many miles, you just gotta kinda wait... till somthing happens, hopefully, any previous owner dealt with the problems.. cuz outa pocket, this car can be exspensive to fix. Just pray, do your oil changes, inspect your motor mounts, cv joints, and listen for any unusual noises. a lot of the problems come from the tranny, and the intake manifold, or related parts... at least this is my expirience. the tsb's are listed on this site, just do a search... but tsb's arent recalls. If you want to check for recalls... there are government sites that will check for free... and of course there is not statute of limitations on recalls, so if you find one, the dealer must replace it for free.
I lit it on fire... twice.

South Jersey SVT-Certified?

You are SOL w/o a warranty. Or, if you have an extended warranty, the you will still be out the deductible. If you have an extended warranty w/o a deductible, then you are ahead in the game. In other words, $100 seems reasonable.

Search for YRF0. There are more than a few threads. Read the TSB per the PCM flash. Read the advice on how to present the "driveability" problem to the service advisor.

Why don't you tell us what the current flash is on your new car? Start with the passenger-side door A-pillar (front part of door frame). Is there a new p/n listed under the hood with a sticker? Did you get any maintenance records with the car?

Are you even having any "driveability" problems? If not, then maybe save $$ on the flash until it is not a hardship.

Good luck.

I think Downs Ford in Toms River. I do not know if that is considered South Jersey.
