Normal did the right thing

By:  Diane Benjamin

Remember when I reported Normal spending $12,393.20 for an engine?

I FOIA’d the maintenance records and had a guy in the industry look at them.  The truck is a heavy-duty Ford that probably hauled huge loads and may have a snow plow.  It’s a 2012, so replacing the engine extended the life of the truck – much cheaper than buying new.  My guy said the maintenance on this vehicle was good.

See the records here:  Repairs, maintenance history Ford F5H7 (S-10)

  1. “A guy” sounds like a reliable source (eye roll). I have “a guy,” too. Want to know what he thinks of this article?
