  • Here's one more for you.

    Had a new tire put on and they found a "regular" cap on the valve stem. You know, the little 50 cent twist on caps? Well, you can't use those on a tire with pressure monitoring system because it lets in moisture and ruins the sensor. An $80 sensor later and I realize that if I lose one of these caps that I have to make sure I replace with a "sensor-friendly" cap and not just any cap you can pick up at the gas station for 99% of all other vehicles.

    When one of my sensors goes bad, I want one of yours... Ford quoted me $165.

    Some more fun... did you know that if you rotate your own tires, you will get a tire pressure sensor alarm that only can be reset by a tire shop or the dealer? I didn't know myself, but I do now. What a plan for everybody except the do-it-yourselfers.

    This is why all my vehicles are pre 2000... I'm a thrifty kind of guy and enjoy saving labor costs by doing the work myself and picking up parts at salvage yards when I can.
