problem #2

May 152002

F-150 XLT 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


owned this truck since new engine started this at approx 75000 miles. currently have 150000. never did anything other than change oil every 2500 miles engine runs fine , the only problem other than this is that had to replace a coil because the anti-freeze drips down directly on top because ford designed a connection directly in the wrong place. I have fixed this problem by cutting a larger size of hose and wrapping the connection diverting it away if any leakage would accrue -the coil replacement at a ford dealer would cost 350 to 400 dollars and ford mech say this is because have to strip entire top of head to gain access -I designed and used a simple home made tool and have changed these in 15-20 min plus the cost of a coil 20 bucks

problem #1

(reported on)

F-150 XLS V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles

Engine was making a clicking sound, like a bad valve. Heard that cracked exhaust manifold was fairly common in Fords. Parts were $300. Labor was mostly involved in getting nuts off - needed to heat. Not well protected on the underbody - so rusted tight. Dealer didn't have parts so had to go back twice.
