New to me 04 Lightning

Hi everybody, about 2 weeks ago I became the proud owner of a 2004 lightning with just over 40,000miles on it. I have been reading alot about and going thru other threads. I was wondering what are some important things I should check on it before to long? The big one i have seen is to check the intercooler pump, but i know theres gotta be more besides the normal wear stuff like brakes ect... Your assistance is appreciated. I want it to be dependable for along time. Thanx

the 2000&2001 had smaller interco0ler coils than later models adn some had a probled with leakinginto the intake system.schould not be a pr0blwm on your 2004.if you have to continue to add fluid to intercooler tank check the coil for leaks.

Oh no its not leaking fluid just the check to make sure the pump is working by seeing the fluid moving around like I have seen it described.

The '99 and '00 model years had the intercooler problem. They came with a 9 row intercooler.

Starting with the '01 model year, Ford put in a better, 10 row intercooler that solved the leaking problem. Ford also replaced the leaking models during a "Customer Satisfaction" (as I've heard it described as) program that ended quite a few years ago. It was not a recall, so the program isn't active anymore.

No need to drag up a two month old thread to call people names. Let's keep it friendly folks.

Trolls or extreme wishful thinking. Just ran into someone posting that his stock 1996 Ranger with a 4.0 does 0-60 in 5 seconds. Must have driven it down a cliff.
