Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Extended Service Warranties

I can't remember the company I went with but when I bought my 97 F150
Flareside 4X4 used in July of 1998 the Che*y dealer where I bought it from
gave me a bumper to bumper 4 year 48K mile extended warranty for $800. It
was already out of the factory warranty so I told them I would not pay all
that money on a vehicle without at least a 3 year warranty, bumper to
bumper, so they offered this deal to me and I couln't help but take it. I
will check this afternoon what company it is with and get back to you as
soon as I can.

From: Mike Jordan
Subject: FTE 97up - 2000 Extended E-350 Van - What's New?

Has anything been posted about what is new or different on the 2000 E-250
and E-350 cargo and passanger vans? I've checked on the Ford web page but
didn't find anything.

Also, on the Ford web site I tried their section where you can configure a
vehical but found the only Econoline option on there was for the E-150. Is
there a place on the there or another web site where I can put in the
options I want and get the suggested price?

I'm looking at special ordering a E-350 extended cargo van but with the cab
part having all the options of a passenger van, keyless entry, power
windows, upgraded captain's chairs, upgraded stereo, rear AC, tow package
and just about all the other comforts that can be had, but minus the seats
in the back. We haul dogs and want the room in back for crates and other
things so don't need the seats. A local dealer has indicated that it's
about a 12 week order period. Has anyone ordered a 2000 van yet and if so,
does it look like they are on track for the time till delivery?

Thanks for any input anyone has.

Mike

Ford has a spare tire lock where one piece fits in the tube and the other
becomes a key and attaches to the crank when needed. The key otherwise is
kept in the glove box.

Touch wood, I haven't had to test it yet but at least it is some deterent.

As I recall I paid about $45.00.

At least they can't just insert the crank and wind the tire down.

Good luck

Subject: FTE 97up - mileage PSD, fuel drain?

Here is my numbers from trip i thought i would see how far PSD/4x4 F250SD w/
29 gal. tank would go. w/ approx 250 lbs in bed.

364 miles till low fuel light indicated

Filled at 367 miles

filled up with 23.2 gallons

that gives a 15.818965 MPG
with most all highway and some town slowdown, cruising at 70-80
whats everyone else getting, who is checkin?

where exactly is the fuel drain release located on 99F250SD PSD? I looked
today when I was changeing oil, but i sure dont see it....
