I'm planning on ordering a 99PSD and would like to know sources for items
like, fuel filter, air filter {KN?}, oil filter. Also looking for one time
items like front bug shield and grill guard. Grill guard, prefer light duty
just mainly to hold the bug screen out in front of radiator. In Florida
without one your radiator plugs up quick.

My month-old '98 F-150 XLT SuperCab, automatic, 4.6L V8 has done a few
things that have started to worry me:

1. On the day after I bought it, it stalled at a stop sign. I thought that
was no big deal since it was brand new... as long as it didn't do it again.

2. Last week while I was slowly driving in a parking lot without my foot on
the gas or brake, as soon as I started to turn into a stall the truck
suddenly accelerated forward on its own. Fortunately I was able to hit the
brakes before I hit the other car.

3. Today when driving into a parking lot the engine just stopped when I
started to accelerate a little.

A couple people I know say this is normal for a new car with a "learning
computer" that is trying to figure out how I drive. Shouldn't it have
figured it out by this time? It's got 660 miles on it now.

It's bad enough to stall once while stopped, but to suddenly accelerate or
to stall while moving is another story, in my opinion.

Should I take it in for service and hope they can adjust the timing
somehow? Three problems in one month is still very intermittent. How many
more times before I should worry?

Is this problem common among new F-150s?

Thanks.

I got one number from a dealer for Helm Inc. Does anyone else know of a good place to get a manual for a 98 Explorer?
