    If we can’t say limp mode can we at least replace it with lymph node?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Eshom says:

    "Let's go ahead and brake and watch this thing try to send us into a telephone pole" 😆

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Willie Pelzer says:

    Ford has had shitty break's for many , many years. If anyone thinks I am wrong why are there wheels black with break dust????

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brian watkins says:

    good job investigating the problem in a mechanically logical way by having the knowledge of how things work and the possible variants of such that said – now we all want to see the brake cleaner spray, please

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FrugalPrepper's Garage & Garden says:

    What are you doing out test driving. Can't you see one of the paycheck collection trucks is in the parking lot?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Pryce says:

    My Ford f-150 is doing the same thing

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Keeler says:

    Dude you are no longer a wrencher, but a diagnostic commentator. I envy you . KUDOS! The new Scotty?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 77 Zrod says:

    Don't lie…you were too busy with the matco guy and forgot your gopro, lol.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J P says:

    Dealership did new pads on all four/two new rotors on the front. Finally had the module refurbished and installed it. Lights are gone which is great but the same poor braking and the same slight delay in acceleration you showed in the video. Had the system bled at the tire shop and that seemed to make a noticeable difference but it was short lived within 45 min of easy city driving. I will certainly utilize some of these tidbits you shared. That thermal temp gun was pretty sharp too.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Love my country says:

    I had an 05’ F150 with similar issues. To further diagnose, I found out the caliper pistons were made of phenolic crap, not metal. The pistons would crack and hang up. Not sure if they went back to metal pistons.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Strong says:

    Do not allow Petah to work on that one.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Strong says:

    Yes…That was scary.
    LET'S DO IT AGAIN!
    YEAAHHH!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddy Hawman says:

    Enjoy your vids coz I can actually understand your comments coz your English is real good. I'm Englishman in uk.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kurt Dikkers says:

    IR thermometer and stethoscope are my favorite tools.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nhzxboi says:

    The more confident you get the more bold you get, the more arrogant you get. These videos are starting to display a significant amount of arrogance. Click bait sorta junk. Embrace your humility and cut the garbage titles out.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Negative Placebo says:

    Positive comment for the YouTube algorithm.

    LOL … that was a scary one … let's do it again.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars YouTube Junky says:

    Smell is always a good indicator of a break that is hanging up. It is an awful smell

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dee Loc says:

    Bagina 🤪 my mazda 6 had zame problem i had to replace 2 calipers becauze nobody ever greased the pins they welded themselvez together luckily i was able to barely get the other 2 unstuck and greased the shiznit out of them and one piston boot is torn but isnt leaking yet so i didnt bother replacing it i know i should of

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian D. says:

    “It’s cat” OMG dude 😂

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Psycho-NutKase says:

    Its a Ford they wonder on there own thats why it wasn't the complaint. 😂

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CAYMAN987 says:

    Ray has lame mode at times

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Susan Hodges says:

    No wonder, he drives a Fix Or Repair Daily.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John O'Gara says:

    Yeah new calipers, discs and pads, and she will be as good as new

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Kavanagh says:

    That's what I love about your videos. No one in Ireland would say that. Here it's a bag trans.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Downey says:

    A few years ago, a neighbor kid heard someone use the phrase "limp in mode". he mis-understood and thought it was "flintstone" mode. he thought that it meant putting your feet through the floor to stop.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Selv says:

    This is some sagely talk.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ARednecksLife says:

    New spelling for Death Trap and it's spelled Ford, but in all honesty it's been spelled Ford for a long time.
    The Ford ding, sounds like it's saying, I'm a Ford.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Claude Gustafson says:

    My 2011 f150 went into limp mode because the timing chain had stretched. Eco boost engine

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Saul Goodman says:

    Limp mode. That's old people sex, with no Viagra.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tony elliott says:

    My X use to put me in Limp Mode by running the mouth… lol.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Sowards says:

    Is it normal to diagnose the problem then have another mechanic do the repair?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Slicerwizard says:

    Limp mode, but no CEL? I have my doubts…

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gamarada bamal says:

    that's going to be expensive repair i just paid $1000 Aust for just rotors and break pads

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Paolucci says:

    Ray, I've worked on cars my whole life and have made a living at it as well. You have great skills and are entertaining. You always have the right tool and your best quality is you manage to capture the video with the perfect lighting and sound. I enjoy watching you work. Thanks

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob H says:

    Limp mode is very much real on these Fords. I had a wrench symbol that would pop on my dash under heavy acceleration and then it would severely limit power response when pressing down on the gas to the point where it can cause an accident.
    My limp mode was caused by misfires

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joey West says:

    "if u wouldn't pry bar it, it wouldn't leak"
    was he reading the comments before the video was even downloaded.??

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Clampitt [HHS] says:

    I would have cracked open the bleeder to see if the caliper released to verify bad caliper or restriction in the system

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D Pose says:

    I generally really like your channel. Even make it better just talk like you're serious. Stop imitating the phone ringing. Stop saying open Z hood and other ridiculous language.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CIC Keith says:

    Recently found out that my 98 Expo has a limp mode where it disables 4 cylinders and alternates which 4 inorder to keep the engine cool while overheating or loss of coolant.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JamesJoyce12 says:

    I am ultra-familiar with limp mode because I own Jaguars – if you own a Jaguar then about 10% of your driving time in in limp mode – my last one an XK-8 and now happily Jaguar-free

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr. Theta says:

    "Needs two calipers"…….They don't get rebuilt anymore? That's what I used to do when I worked in a Ford dealership.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Salty Main says:

    Ooh HDR

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffry Blackmon says:

    Thanks for another interesting diagnosis.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Poster says:

    I never heard of Limp Mode before your video's Ray. Maybe this is all your fault! XD

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris sumner says:

    I also go into limp mode when its cold outside….😝🤣
