My 1998 just turned 30,000 miles. Dealer kept it for 2 months about 2 years ago and did ALL the recalls (about 14 at the time). Ever since it has had no problems.

Angry how many miles you all have?

98 4.0 SOHC just hit 90,000 and the transmission is going out. Dealer trans. service every 30k, no towing, no offroad. Not happy.

bcbratt, I hope it's just the torque converter and not the entire tranny.

Aski if there is a recall or Ford paid fix.

My 92 just crossed over 208K. At 176K, you are just about broken in.

Trade my '91 at 168k. Never had any problems till the thermostat stuck at 138k miles and cost me a $1800 head job. Then they started leaking again so I traded it. Lessson learned was that thermostat need to be changed every 70-80k miles. I did regular oil changes and the tranny.


2000Xlt 5.0 66k miles

107k on a 94 XLT. I've heard stories from a mechanic buddy of mine that these motors have gone 500k! There's my goal!

The thermostats go defective unexpectedly. So carry a spare, only $16 at the Dealer. And a small 10mm socket or wrench. Could save you $900 to $2000 in engine work.

About your rebuilt or used tranny question.... it depends on how much you are willing to pay. Most rebuilds will only give you up to 12K or 1 year warranty. When mine went on my 92 I decided to spend the extra coin for a new Jasper trans that had a 3 year/50,000 mile warranty. Cost me $2200, but it was worth it considering I was getting price quotes for $1600 - $1800 for a rebuilt... a no-brainer at that point.

You can also buy a REMANUFACTURED transmission. Some have a 3 year, 36K mile warranty since they are almost entirely new.
