Re: '00 intake manifold preventative measure?
Yeah, I think I also saw somewhere that Ford did a limited recall that only covered government fleet vehicles. But then both yours and mine are former gov't vehicles, so maybe there were a lot that weren't covered.
I've also read that they tend to go all at once at the weak spots. That's not so bad if you're around town but if you're on a trip...not so good. Could be very expensive.
