" I currently own a 1983 Ford Ranger, 2.8 V6, 3 speed auto., 2wd.,
142,000 miles The body of the truck is in decent shape and the paint is
still ok, the frame and suspension are fine, the interior is fine, but the
driveline pretty much seems to suck. I have had numerous problems since I
bought the truck from the ignigtion system to the carbuerator to the
transmission. I really like the truck, but it just doesn't seem to be worth
fixing anymore. The only problems right now are that for some reason it
dies sometimes when I come to a stop or almost to a stop, and it leaks some
oil(mostly from the valve covers) and transmission fluid. If anyone has any
suggestion on what I should do with the truck, such as get the engine
rebuilt, buy a new 2.8 engine and transmission, or to try to put a different
engine in the truck and weather or not it would be worth it to do anything
to the truck, or if anyone know of a good place to get more information on
fixing up the truck a little... PLEASE let me know. Thanks."

Kyle:
I had an 83 2.8 long bed 4x, that I dearly loved for the longest time. Some
of the carb/computer problems drove me wild, and I finally sold it.

I bought at 50 k miles for $4500. New tires and front end parts required at
that time. The manual Mazda five speed started going out at 98k miles, but
this was hidden by a jiffy lube fluid change to heavier oil. At 125k, it
cost me $1300 to repair. I had the engine rebuilt at that time, as my son
had driven it home with no water in it when the bottom mounted thremosatat
failed closed. Both heads were cracked. The rebuilder said most 2.8's have
cracked heads. I loved the rebuild, lots more power. A week into the break
in, my wild son took it to La Paz (Baja), 3500 miles on a banzai run. It was
fine.

The quitting on deacceleration for me was the air divertor valve failing
open, so that the engine only ever saw cold air. This one needs warm air at
idle or it will not run. I almost killed some people when the darn engine
quit on me that way, in a turn. Lose engine, steering, and brakes when it
dies. Not fun. The dealer cost me $500 and he did not fix it, turned out to
be a bunch of number-running, gold chain wearing, coke addicts from Las
Vegas. I sat down with a buddy and went thru it logically and found the
problem in 3 minutes. Stupid me. The new air valve was 15 dollars. The
original was prone to failure.

Valve covers? Get cork gaskets and torque up proper with the right hold down
thingys. Until you burn them with the exhaust they won't leak. I never
could get the rubber ones to stop leaking. And I never could get those darn
solid lifters adjusted correctly either. The shop did a good job though.

The 83's were the first ones out of the hatchery, and came with smaller
brakes etc. If you like it, then keep it. My decision at 200k was to sell it
and get a healthy F150 with a 302/auto. No more Japanese five speeds for me!
I'm told the automatics are american and cheaper to work on . If you had a
later model with the top mounted thremostat and an EFI system, and auto, I
would say keep it. But that darn carburetor is a darn shame, especially if
you have to have it smogged. Oh yes, we put 3 or 4 radiators in it, and
Ford was not supporting the hydraulic clutch arrangement at last glance.
That darn thing is why I finally stopped in and got a new F150 one
afternoon. My Ranger was a fairly good investment (?) and I enjoyed the heck
out of it. It was a great size for todays world (outside but not in) as
compared to my behemoth F150,,,,but the F150 is sooooo much more comfortable!

(wordy, but precise) Dave Lampert---good luck.

Brian, you didn't state what gears you have? My 95 F150 with tow package
and 1000# rear springs tows my 5000# boat very nicely. Yes it has a big
trans cooler, HD radiator and all that. If you have the 4x with camper
package, I'd be surprised your rear springs, radiator and fan aren't ok
already. You day it doesn't have a trans cooler? My truck has the light
rear springs, so it sets down early on the overloads (head light problems on
two lanes), but is other wise fine. I do have the handling package, which is
just the rear sway bar, which I suspect you already have.

I would not go for the solid fan, keep the clutch. The noise is horrendous.
And the power drag. Clean up your cooling system, replace the 11 yr old
radiator with a bigger one if necessary, clean the tranny fluid, and maybe
add a shift kit.

Hey, this will keep it stock and you may be a little slow on hills, but
you;'re out to enjoy aren;t you? (your 4x and xtra cab are adding weight of
course--shoulda been ordered with a 351 intially). I'd be interested in what
you find in high flow cats, as my son has an 88 302 4x and I've promised him
more power! (does your 302 have sefi?).

Message-ID:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

Hi-

I have been following this and another Ford list for several days. I have
recently acquired a 1991 F-150 Supercab w/5.0L and the E4OD. The engine
seems to be in good shape but makes a bit less power than I anticipated
when I need to pass, so I am looking for a few extra ponies. I am looking
for recommendations on what works and what does not, as well as recommended
parts vendors (price & knowledge.) My current plan is to order a drop-in
K&N filter in the next few days. Is there any reason that I should be
looking for an airbox replacement instead? I have put replacement intake
and cone K&N's in two cars with great results, but their intakes seemed
more restricted than the Ford over-the-radiator intake. The OEM muffler is
getting a bit porous so I am considering a cat-back system as well. The
stock pipe at roughly 2.5" is only a little larger than the system I have
on my 4 cylinder, so it seems a bit undersized. I don't mind a little more
sound than stock but I would like to avoid anything that is "boomy" at
highway speeds. It is OK if it roars when I have it floored, but I want to
avoid extensive drone on long drives. Any recommendations on cat-backs?

Another person has suggested bumping the timing up a tad. I will probably
do this. I am also thinking about indexing the plugs, but I have not tried
this before--any advice and does this help the 5.0L V-8's much?

Thanks,

Shawn Clark

If you would weigh that truck, I think you'd see that the mileage you
are getting is pretty reasonable.
Trucks aren't like cars; when you get to the bigger ones, they tend to
be purpose-built. What the salesmen are telling you is that people who
buy big F-350 4X4 Diesel Crew-Cabs have a specific need for them, and
mileage is not that much of a concern. Hence, the 4.10's.
That large a truck will weigh more than your F-250 (my '91 F-250
SuperCab 4X2 460 weighs damn near 3 tons!), and will eat a lot of fuel
to move around. Being Diesel will help, but not all that much.
Maybe you are looking at too much truck?

Hello fellow ford enthusiasts!

I am currently looking at a new ford ext cab 4x4 as a tow vehicle for an
RV and thought someone out there may have some of their own exerpiences to
share in this regard. The truck I looked at is a light duty f250 5.4 litre
auto. The travel trailer weight is 6,500 - 7,000 gvw.

The big question I have is... do I need to go to this size of vehicle or
will the 4.6 F150 4x4 be adequate. From what I hear from other folks, the
5.4 liter eats a lot more gas. Second part is, do I need the F250. By
the way, rear end ratio for both is 3:55 with trailer tow package.

What kind of gas mileage can be expected with the 4.6 and 5.4.

Thanks in advance for your reply(s).

What kind of truck do you drive Brad? I went to the Super Shops off
Antoine looking for one for my truck, and they didnt have it in stock. I
wasnt there to look for it, at that time I took a friend there to get
some parts for old ford uni-body truck we were working on and looked
around to see what they had.

Hi all ,
Okay The filter on my truck is a oval shaped unit that replaces
the factory airbox .This filter is huge and completly different from the
30.00 dollars rectangle filter that K&N also makes. Stupid Shops (super
shops) in Houston (gessner) has the kix for any Ford I-6,5.0,5.8,or 7.5
gas engine.If the first guy you speak with dosen't know about it then
talk to someone else. This product has been out for a while now but , you
might have to order it.
Now does any one have any info on the cat-back system from
flowmaster that is my next project 3inch inlet\outlet muffler and pipe .
I hope it will sound better that stock.

I am a collage student in Kingsville Texas and do not work for K&N (might

This problem could be as simple as a bad relay. I work in aircraft
electronics, and this problem shows up quite often. Any overload
protection circuit is based on heat. Overloading or a circuit drawing
too much current basically generates heat. This heat is what burns out
fuses or causes a circuit breaker to trip. When the circuit breaker gets
week, it will not hold at it's rated amperage, or "heat" rating. Hope
this helps.

Yes. Call Diesel Injection Services - They can provide any K&N filter, not
just the ones for diesels. When I went looking, they had the best price and
service. They even discount the cleaning kit, which nobody else did. If you
order something they don't keep in inventory, you get it sent directly from
K&N, but with the DIS discount. I've ordered K&N filters for all my cars,
including a 1970 Volvo. Saved a mint, just on that one. I ordered a bunch
of stuff for my Ford diesel and it came extremely well wrapped and two days
earlier than promised. Saved at least 25% over my nearest Ford dealer too,
even after shipping (filters don't weigh much). Very helpful guys at DIS.

I have a K&N drop in filter in my 96 F-150 4x4 (302). You just remove
the old filter and drop this one in. It seems to give more power and saves
on replacement costs. I live on the gravel roads in Canada (quebec) and tend
to use 4 filters a year before I changed to K&N.

You can get "good" spark plug wires at a Hi Performance type auto parts

I just bought my first Ford. It's an 87 E-150 with a 302EFI and a overdrive
auto with
about 110,000 on it. Can anyone tell me how the front ends hold up on these
things and what usually wears out first? I just greased it and everything
appears tight. Thanks
Scott
