Last Truck: 2001 F150 XLT 5.4L...purchased in 2007 w/ 59,000 miles...ran it until two weeks ago. (June 2013) Traded it in with 130,000 miles. Never had a single problem with it, except for needing to add a quart between oil changes towards the end. Loved how it ran, and how that model year handled...but living in NW PA takes a toll on vehicles (Rust).

New Truck: 2006 F150 XLT 5.4L...it has 65,000 miles and runs like a champ.

almost 92k miles on my 1998 5.4 expedition runs like a top!

my grandfather has almost 72k miles on his 2004 5.4 f-150 without any issues.

My 2004 F-150 5.4L Crew Cab Short Box with full tow package now has 176,000Kms/106,000Mi and the only concern I have is the ticking in the engine at idle. Does anyone have any feedback on that engine noise?

186000 1997 f150 4.6l 4x4 runs like new. has the tick but it goes away so i really don't care. have replaced wires and plugs. put in bars head gasket fix, water pump, new oil pressure sensor, shocks, probably some stuff i am forgeting but stuff happens. my truck runs perfect. not a whole lot of power with the 4.6 but it still pulls muy camper and boat.

the parts truck i picked up has 246,000 miles on it.
the county sold it with a bad engine. the knock they said was in the engine was a broken flex plate.
engine runs great still.

05 Expy with the 5.4 3V. 123k, no major problems. Had one fuel injector bite the dust, but the extended warranty took care of repairs. Bought it with 52k in 07 and the motor has always been noisy.

Last truck was a 99 Expy with the 5.4 2V. Sold it to a friend with 191k. It now has 250k and running strong! Only thing he has repaired is one COP and replaced a cat.
