The engine runs like new - I replaced
the air intake manifold gasket at
approx. 150K & the crankcase oil pan
gasket once at approx. 200K. The front
brakes must have been designed for the
festiva - I had to purchase rotors way
to often! My transmission was rebuilt
around 150K. The torque converter sent
a hard to find vibration through my
truck at around 75K that was a Ford
problem - Ford actually issued a
service bulletin for this. Overall a
great truck! I should have purchased
(2) - it was ~$13K new.
Ford's bread-and-butter truck receives minor changes that include the implementation of a CFC-free air conditioning system, the addition of side door beams, a center high-mounted stop lamp, a driver-side airbag (for under-8,500-pound GVWR models) and a brake shift interlock system for all automatics. A premium 40/20/40 bench seat option is added to XLT Crew- and SuperCab styles and a wide-ratio four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive accompanies the 5.0L engine.
