What's the deal with the photos of the new 99 F-150? Now they are saying
next friday! Is Ford up to something?

My 97 F350 PS has an aux tank from Transfer Fllow Inc (1-800-442-0056).
Outstanding
product and good people.

Subject: FTE 97up - slick 50 and powerstroke

Stay away from the stuff! I've heard and read to much about the negative
qualities of these additives toever use them again. If you really want
teh best for your engine now that it is broken in try a high quality
synthetic such as Mobil 1 as I do. As for the tranny it doesn't need it,
routine maintenance is fine. If you really want to take care of it
upgrade to a larger tranny cooler. Also auxilary filter kits are
available for both auto trannies and engines that run the fluids through
two filters instead of one, both are going on my truck. Summit and Jegs
carries them.

Hope this helps
Bryan

Subject: FTE 97up - Transmission to Buy?

Folks,
I'm about to order a 450 diesel crew cab 4x4. We are going to become
full-time RV'rs, pulling a 7 ton + fifth wheel.
Probably the truck will do that a day or two about every two weeks,
otherwise it will be our running-around vehicle.
My wife would prefer an automatic, but would drive the standard. I
prefer standard transmissions in general, but have never driven a rig
nearly as heavy as this will be with the trailer on.
We expect to be in lots of kinds of terrain, including mountains.

I'd appreciate comments from people with the experience to give good
advice on the advantages or disadvantages of each transmission for our
kind of usage.

ALSO: on a newsgroup someone said if you get a 4x4 you should get
limited-slip differential. Comments? I've seen a list of options and
l.-s.d. doesn't seem to be one. Anyone know if that's true?

Thanks.
Neil Stahl

Go to http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.suv.org/index.html and take the survey. This is anti
SUV and
needs to be told the truth.

Subject: FTE 97up - 97 Wheels falling off

The only recall info so far has been by newspaper-tv, etc. I took my
truck in and the dealer was more than happy to tighten and check the lug
nuts and check out another problem (recall or tsb) with a cable
linkage. He explained that ford does not have a new design yet on lug
nuts and when they do, it will take a little while to make 50 million of
them. Important thing is that they are doing the checking of the
lugnuts without a recall letter. Guess we will get a letter when lug
nuts are in stock.
NATHAN---question---when we buy a used ford truck under warranty--how
does the company know it has been transferred so the new owner (me) gets
the recall letters?

From: Carlos Lawton Subject: FTE 97up - 97 Wheels falling off Is Ford
supposed to be performing the recall work concerning the wheels falling
off? My co-worker just had his rear wheel fall off, but he never got a
recall letter. My dealer told me "we don't have the parts yet, so all
we're doing is tightening the lug nuts" Doesn't it seem like this is a
serious problem that needs to be corrected before someone gets killed?

Subject: FTE 97up - Aftermarket concole computer?

I bought the 1999 XLT Powerstroke package to commute back and forth
from work. I am trying to get the best milage that I can and starting
to wish I would have spent the extra money for the Lariat, which comes
with the onboard computer.

So here is my question. The slot for it is in my dash -- does
anyone know how much it would be to add one of these aftermarket?

Is it relatively simply or would it involve too much?

Thanks, everyone, for all of the continued help since I
joined this list.

Steve in Tx
