Problems with BREAKS

Hi guys,

i'm asking this question cause i find it really weird all this. I have a 2009 F250 DIESEL which i bought NEW in June 2009. I have 44000km on it, it NEVER pulled anything, it never had weight more than 300 lbs on it (2 times a month MAX)... most of the time i do highway... and about 1.5 months ago it started to shake every time i break... everybody is telling me that it's the disks are finished blabla but i don't understand how can this happen with such a new truck... Is it really me or there is something wrong?

What you guys suggest me?

thanks guys

William!

Time to do a good inspection. Also check for play in the balljoints, wheel bearings and tie-rods, they can affect how the trucks brakes. If it's a 4x4, make the hubs are unlocking. If you can, get or borrow a run-out gauge/dial indicator. Pull each caliper off and measure run-out for warpage. It's the only true way to know if they are warped. Make you check all four rotors too. One thing that is always gets neglected is the sliders and areas that slide against each other. They need lubricating once a year.

probably warped rotors.

My work truck.
'10 E350 2WD. it's a 56,000k right now. . @ about 48-50k.. The trucks had a shake when braking.

Sure enough. rotors were warped. pads had about 4mm left. Had some life left on the pads but the rotors were done.

Cost just shy of $1000 to get all new rotors & pads replaced @ Midas.

Midas....there's your first problem right there, but them's the brakes.

Guess if it's a work truck it doesn't really matter who works on it.

I wouldn't let those hacks check the air pressure in my tires.

Well I don't pay the bill.
We've went to Ridgehill ford numerous times and been fucked over every time.
- 4+ hours to change over some tires??
- 3+ hours for an oil change??
- Book a tire repair at 12 when all the mechanics go for lunch?

Their reason for justification, is its a bigger truck.. Lol seriously.. 2 extra lug nuts.

At least the guys at midas get it in when its supposed to. Use a seat cover & wash their hands before they get in the truck.

We had to go into Kitchener ford to get the engine replaced. When we got the truck back a week later we needed to clean the interior, because there was black hand prints everywhere..

If it was my personal vehicle I would have flipped out on the service advisor. With it being work we run a pretty tight schedule and just don't the time for that.

I understand but it's a working truck... mine i ONLY use it on the weekends... during the week i dont go work with the truck and most of the time i dont even do 100km in a weekend... i make about 8000km per year...

It shouldn't be that way...

Hey Travis, sorry to hear you're so bitter towards Ford dealer maintenance, sounds like you've had some hard times and bad luck.

No wonder you're such a Negative Nelly, easy to see why.

Much like doctors, dentists, veterinarians or grocery stores, we all have good and bad experiences, but don't be so quick to generalize .

There are Midas dealerships guilty of the same overcharging and bad service that you found at the local Ford dealer.

If you find a spot that you work well with, and that treats you like a valued customer , it can make problems a lot easier to deal with.

I've been really fortunate to find that sort of dealership for both sales and service, which is why I've been going to Montgomery Ford in Kincardine for the last 8 years.

I hope you can find the same peace of mind someday too.

Jesus loves you brother.

I know where your coming from Mike.
I take my personal truck to Stauffer Motors in Tillsonburg. I get great service from them. The drive is about 30mins, but I don't mind it.

I don't bother with the local Woodstock Ford either due them lying and trying to pull the wool over their customers eyes.

But Tillsonburg is a bit for the work truck. Lol

brakes can warp with hardly any Klms on them... if you slammed (or even stopped suddenly) it can warp the rotors... also you may have a slipped pad... your trucks not so "new" its 4yrs old....and like you said it sits a lot which builds up rust on the rotors and is hard on pads.
