I took my F5 to the dealership (Kensington Motorsports in Milford MI.) because it ran like crap- like it was running on one cylinder. It wouldnt go over 45 and wouldn't rev over 6800 rpms. I checked the plugs and they were very oily so I replaced them. It didnt make any difference. I checked the Exhaust temperature sensor and it was tight. I checked the APV servo and the cables were still attached and the valves were not stuck. At that point I gave up and took it to the dealer.

It's been there 9 days already and I called today for an update. They told me that the sled was running great and couldnt get it to act up.

I again explained the problem and he said it might be related to the Tachometer Bulletin saying that it might be shorting out and causing the engine to run poorly. The bulletin does'nt say anything about the tach affecting performance.

Has anyone else heard of this or am I getting a line of crap just to pacify me?

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

I think the're feeding you a line.........Whats going on with Cat and the dealers these days?? I have never encountered such incompetence on such a wide scale before...........the other OEM's must be laughing at cat struggling with the Firecats....although I think the sales to major problem ratio is very small
