Default Cursed FoMoCo!

Why.... Why do they feel the need to change the part number for their spark plugs again? It took me a good 20 minutes of my life to try and acquire eight AWSF22C plugs(copper core as dictated by the "C") from the dealership. I wanted Motorcraft plugs. I told the guy specifically that I wanted AWSF22C'* and he asked what car it was for. I told him the car, and he pulled up some garbage on his computer, then attempted to hand me eight platinum plugs. As if being platinum wasn't bad enough, he tried to hand me stock plugs. I called him on it, pushed and pushed. Damn fool didn't even have a copper plug. Why can't they just leave the part numbers alone? Why make it so difficult for me to get genuine motorcraft 22C plugs?

I had to go across the street to another store and settle for Autolite 103'*. I assume they are one heat range colder than the 104'*..... I hope they are....

That'* all. Just had to gripe about the ***holes at FoMoCo.... You may go about your business.

Autolite make the Motorcraft plugs anyways....
I really miss th days when parts guys knew more than just what the screen shows them. Just like cashiers that could count change without having to look on the screen...LOL

The only things I try to stick with Motorcraft are sensors and Cap & Rotor.
Just about everything else is beter & cheaper elsewhere...LOL

You can do that all you want here.

Sorry to hear about your difficulties.
It would be nice to deal with people that actually knew what they were doing and ha d pride and knowledge about their job.
