No need to check the VIN #. Only 4.6L engines are built at both Windsor and
Romeo plants. All 5.4L and 6.8L engines are built at Windsor so if you have
a 5.4L your engine could have piston slap and may qualify for replacement if
the Ford mechanic detects the noise.

About 2 weeks ago, the mailing list archives were put on the
web site in searchable form. Unfortunately, there turned out
to be a problem with many of the archive files and they
displayed blank pages. This how now been corrected. The
archives can be found at:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/archives/index.html

Since they aren't accessible via links and only via a search,
your email addresses are protected against spam harvesters.

Steve: Thanks for the (bad) news.

Does anyone know what percentage of 5.4 L engines experience the piston
slap?

If I remember correctly, Nathan posted that Ford says
1 in 500 to 2,000 are afflicted with piston slap. Pretty
good odds that you don't have the problem.

Robert

I have a filter installed on my 6 Speed. It has been on since new, 20K miles
at this time.

I purchased the Permacool Mount and use a Wix 51525 filter (I may have the
filter numbers transposed).

I also installed a large B&M Cooler and pinched off the cooler line to the
radiator.

I would have to crawl under the truck to find the line configuration. You
can tell by feeling the line temperature when the truck is warming up.

I asked the Ford Service Manager to give me the Inflow/outflow designation
from their computer.

If you want me to check respond back to me.

Scott.

Subject: ADMIN: Message boards have been upgraded.

The message board software has been upgraded. Check it
out! It has many new features, including the ability
to integrate with mailing lists, rating topics, email
topics to a friend, sorting, printer friendly output
and more.

Once I figure out how to guard email addresses, the
mailing lists will cross-post to the message boards
and visa-versa. Azie will finally have access to the
web site, though in an indirect way!

PS - I'm still working on web mail, I found a bug in
the setup that will be addressed this weekend.
