Ford makes 'em right
By Jack O'Conner on
Vehicle1991 Ford E-150 XL Econoline 3dr Cargo Van
ReviewMy E-150 is a conversion van. This is the 3rd E-150 I've owned since 1987. All feature the 4.9 liter in-line six cylinder engine. Put in a K & N performance air filter and she will run better on long steep hills. Expect 16 mpg which is about right for a heavy commercial vehicle like this. The tranny will fail at about 140K miles but used ones are easily found that can be installed for less than $700. I've NEVER worn out a Ford 4.9 liter engine. They still run strong at the 200K mile mark! But I add a pint of RESTORE at every oil change. Speaking of oil, I like Valvoline 10W- 30 best.
Best FeaturesI like Ford reliability. I drive at least 25K miles per year with my business and only Ford can take this kind of wear without failures. Day in and day out Ford Econoline will always start and run properly with no suprise failures.
Worst FeaturesI wish Ford would put a performance cam in their Econoline vans to boost horsepower a bit.
