1997 Ford E-150 Econoline 3dr Cargo Van
Luckily I bought the 70000 mile
extended warranty. At 50000 miles the
transmission went out requiring a
complete rebuild. At 65000 miles the
engine leaked coolant into the
crankcase requiring a new
longblock.Most irritating was that the
radiator was replaced by Ford with a
faulty radiator which I drove 18000
miles in 8 months---Fords policy is 12
mo. or 12000---which means I had to Pay.
In one three month period the
dealership had the van longer than I
did!.I hope that this is indicative of
the newer vans--my 1990 has 200000 on
it and going strong.Warning! don't buy
the V6 standard engine---it's
absolutely gutless in every sense of

This van was a very good work van with
the exception of the transmission. I
put 250,000 miles on this van but went
through 3 transmissions. I did do a lot
of stop and go driving though.
