Re: Vacuum pump

#### all I can find are the 1 year stuff, The last one came from Oreilys but there arent any of those stores out here in NM, so its either Auto Zone or NAPA, and they were the same

Re: Vacuum pump

I would probably go buy a ford one at this point. Any chance a belt tensioner pulley allignment problem is at play.

Re: Vacuum pump

I had the last one replaced by Motortrucks, I didn't want to pay for towing... anyways the tech there said they have been shipping them with no oil in them to save on shipping costs. Problem is the manufacturers didn't bother to tell anyone, he said they had been replacing quite a few of them over the past year or so. So when you get a new one just check and make sure it has oil in it.

Re: Vacuum pump

I'm embarrassed, I didn't even ask the guy. He said there is a fill hole on the side, but I think you have to take it off to get to it... I could be wrong I have not looked at mine for some time.
