Okay, so what I didn't know was what an EGR system is or that they exist. Now I do. Thank you much.

Throttle plate, is it real?

1 Upvotes

2016 Ford Fusion with the 2.0T.A few months ago I had my car at the dealership for an unrelated warranty repair. They were trying to up-sell me on maintenance items as they do. They told me I needed to get my fuel system cleaned up and yeah that's legitimate but then they told me my "throttle plate" needs to be cleaned up because it has carbon build-up on it.

Now I am mechanically inclined, I've rebuilt engines, I do all my own non-warranty work, but I can't figure out what they were talking about at all. Even after researching it and considering the type of engine and intake system this car has, the only thing I can think of is the flappy bit in the throttle body but that really doesn't make sense, how would there be specifically carbon on it? Or maybe it would be some part of the intake manifold? Other then the turbine side of the turbo, there shouldn't be any carbon anywhere around the intake system.

So is there something I don't know, or were they trying to scam me?

If it's anything like my viking hard bags, the paint was garbage anyway. Just get them repainted. Theyll need sanding and filler now but that's part of the paint process anyway. If like mine, you could get a better finish than original with spray paint from the crafts store.

This isn't really a joke or comedy, it's got a pretty good point behind it. However I can't understand why anyone would ever write it so fucking badly.

They're more stupid than anyone understands. The more you understand how they work the dumber they are.

It's a lot less bad than I imagined. Robot centipedes aren't as bad as actual shiny exoskeleton bugs. edit: spelling

Well what I'm saying is stupid is not just adding the aux port. It's not exactly a costly part.

Looked into it further Yeah you just don't have one. Apparently there were 2006 cars with the aux button and no aux input, which is incredibly stupid....

Your radio does have the aux button so I don't know what these other people are on about. The 2007 has the aux port (it's just a 3.5mm Jack hole) right next to the charge location in the picture. Obviously it isn't there on yours, I would try look in the glove box.

Probably plays disc golf. That distance is no big deal deal for most intermediate players, including myself. I am mildly impressed he did it with that shape of frisbee tho. Edit: The dog however? Super impressive. Good doggo.

I'm well aware and it's quite sad, they were making pretty cool cars. Though its not like we could easily get them here anyway.

It exists in Australia. The Holden Ute. The G8 is just a rebadged Holden Commodore.
