Helpful Information For Everyone

Hey everyone i just joined the forum from one of your members requesting me.

I work for FORD and if anyone needs to get a RECALL, TSB, Your FORD Vehicles History, Parts & Look up any problems that you are having Just post it here.

No offense, but that's a bad idea. If someone does a search for say, "blah blah TSB", do you really think they will click on a thread that says " Helpful Information For Everyone"? It makes the forum a lot more usefull if threads people are searching for are easy to find.

On the other hand, welcome to FF! :)

What do you do for Ford?

Im a Ford Technician, and instead of searching thru all of these problems you can just ask here if you'd like.

If it doesn't work out with this thread then i guess a mod can lock it but for now we will see i guess Thanks.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Maybe it can be a sticky and renamed to something that is more eye catching for people with problems?
