2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab Styleside 8 ft. LB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I read he horror stories, and I still what's going on.
3rd Ford truck and still impressed.
2 Rangers, now a 5.4 XLT Supercab 2006.
No plug blow outs, no leaks, oil lifters etc.
I do, however, after research and experience, think the 5.4 is a high maintenance engine.
MUST use a light weight FULLY synthetic oil, K&N air filter, the correct oil filter, and CHANGE PLUGS at 60K.
Run fuel injector cleaner every 3 fills.
I only have 46K, but I really think preventative maint. is the key.
Are some of you "romping" on these trucks? ie; break-stands, tug-o war?.
Who knows, I may have all these problems at some point but I have never had one single malfunction/problem with ANY of the 3 I'v own
Looks, ride, power, reliability.
...just the darn AC man..come on, it takes too long to kick in, and I live in Southwest Florida...
