The usual introduction to new vehicles is in October. This means you can
usually buy one in mid Sept. The F-150 should be available at this time.
It will have a 4 door supercab (probably standard). All of us at the
dealership are hoping and praying that they never bring dual tanks back
again. We had way to many problems with them over the years and one big
tank gets the job done just as well.

Subject: Rough idling 97 F150 w/ 5.4 liter engine

Does anyone have any ideas on solutions to the rough idle problem that I'm
having with my 5.4 L 97 F150? Since about 2,000 miles (I now have about
10,000 miles on it) this engine started doing it. It doesn't show up in the
tachometer. It is pretty much constant at idle, but goes away above idle.
The dealer says that it's inherent in the 5.4 L engine and that they get
complaints all the time. They try to equate it to the rough idling due to
the cams in yesteryears' muscle cars (which is not at all what it is like).
Anyone else having the problem?

Thanks,

The only 2 5.4L problems we have had is one had a bad injector (very rough
running) and one had a bad spark plug (intermittent roughness). I have had
no complaints of roughness. You should ask to drive a new truck with the
5.4L to compare to. This would prove or disprove their answer of "they all
do it"

I bought a F150/5.4L about 4 weeks ago, and I have not (knock on wood)
noticed anything like this.

You CAN get the F-250 crew cab with the plow/tow package and the V10,
but it MUST be a shortbox, which you want.
