Fixed Or Repaired Daily

Vehicle1993 Ford F-250 XL 2dr Extended Cab LB
ReviewThis truck has a real quality problem
and is poorly engineered as a work
vehicle. From day one, the front
brakes would stick. Ford could never
fix them. From 40K miles,
leaks sprang up everywhere; valve
guides, main seal, A/C compressor, rear
axle, pinion seal, clutch slave
cylinder, master cylinder, and a rusted
gas tank. The engine bay is cluttered
and hard to work on. The fuel filter
is in a bad spot for replacement. Very
poor torque from a standing start.
Many other problems that seem to be the
result of Ford trying new ideas and
materials that didn't work out.
Best FeaturesOne nice thing is that it has 2 fuel tanks and if a pump were to go bad, you can switch to the other tank.
Worst FeaturesVery poor manual transmission ratios. It needs lower 1st, 2nd, and reverse ratios. If you like to burn rubber, hit the gas and let her rip. But if you handle heavy loads and trailers, or work on inclines, it stalls too easily. Also, bring back the 4.56 axle ratio.
