  • I snuck up on them! Tee-Hee

    I guess I didn't realize how loud my van had gotten since the death of the muffler was a gradual one and i think it was starting before I got it. Yesterday I finally had the muffler and tail pipe replaced. OMG, no huge ROAR when I first start it up, no huge cloud of black stuff pouring out from underneath the van (just at start up it would happen) and I could HEAR the radio CLEARLY! I just thought diesels were louder, I truly had no idea how much louder the van was than it needed to be. So last night after it was fixed I went to my appointment, pulled in, plugged in and knocked at the door and her first comment was "I couldn't hear your van, I almost didn't realize you were here!"
    AND the best part is there is no exhaust coming inside the van anymore. It didn't happen everytime I drove it, but it wasn't pleasant when it did.
    Now, just have to get the heat in the dash fixed. I got done later than expected last night and didn't drop the van off. Shooting for tonight or tomorrow night now.

    now you have to knock on doors. Good for you.
    Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won't buy the wag of it's tail.

      mylady, I'll bet your heat problem is a stuck blend door in your blower. It's a common problem in Fords.

      Glad to hear your van is now runnning in diesel stealth mode.
