actually the OEM seal will last quite some time when installed correctly. the unit comes with installation hardware so that the inner seal isn't pinched in anyway when being installed. Knowing out local "experts" oh you eh need that and they force the seal in to be installed....
infact when the shop put the van up on the ramp on tuesday, the gearbox was missing 2 bolts and the remainder of bolts were simply hand tightened.... I'm guessing they were looking for repeat business by leaving stuff undone....
I just signed up to join this forum and now I'm terrified.
I have a new Ford ranger wildtrak 2016 about 1 year now and reading all these issues makes me feel sick.
I feel like I should be doing something to prevent these things from happening to me.
So far I have no issues other than my off-road craziness which is my fault.
But over all so far so good
I'm approaching 68000km and I only had this vehicle for 1 year
I service every 7500km
Oil, oil filter, air filter, and disc pads. That's about it.
I use a diesel treatment fully organic and so far I don't even see black smoke when i flaw the vehicle. I had my brother sit in a vehicle behind me like two days ago just to check because I drive behind diesel vehicles all the time and witness lots of smoke especially when flawing .
I need help when it comes to servicing because I don't know much.
