I bought a 99 F150 from my neighbor for $500 because of a blown motor. I've had trouble finding the replacement 5.4 motor it needs. I have located a 94 Crowne Vic destined for the scrap yard and wondered if the motor is the same. and will be a suitable replacement, before I buy it.
It would be a nice deal to get the junk body and get the truck running. Pay for itself so to speak.
[quote=galaxie641;10408175]Lots of problems with those old 4.6L's and valve stem seals leaking, quote]
The valve stems on the 4.6l are the exact same as the 5.4l. The entire head is the same actually.
And the 5.4l is just as prone to the valve guide leaking. Id know my 02 5.4l that is in my 99 smokes at start up from time to time. Still has good power though. Makes me think that its probably the valve guides leaking.
alright with the 5.4 thing any 5.4 will work
in my case i have a 4.6 in mine with bent valves fixed it once and bent again so changeing motor
i just pulled a 4.6 out of a 2000 crown vic with the same motor the only thing i have to change is timing chain cover,valve covers for truck, oil pan for 4wd, intake for truck. but other than that its easy to change
but a crown vic will not help u out with a 5.4 in the truck now
