First off, make sure you have a new nut and the MOD specs are correct, the nut is tightened to 59 FTlbs and then you give it another 90 degrees. With a new nut you should be able to do this.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
