I just bought a new Prius to use for my work route vehicle and the Mrs is driving my F250. My 14~mpg very light city in the F250 went to 11 with her driving her short 6 mile each way commute. The...

That's quite a chunk of change! I think I'd be looking into swapping a V10 or 6.2L in there.

Interesting that you say that jimandmandy. I remember synthetic gear lube back in the '80's seeming to bead up on steel rather than stick to it like dino oil.

Old Amsoil in the pan and I would guess a K&N air filter letting the silicates through. I would do a couple of short OCI's and put a good clean new paper air filter in and do another UOA at the next...

Since Amsoil buys their base stock from Mobil Oil, does that mean Amsoil is no longer PAO?

Our son's 15 yr old Dakota was a bear to change. After penetrating oil and a torch, I finally grabbed a pipe wrench. Thought I was going to ruin the exhaust pipe before it finally broke loose. With...

I changed both of mine a couple of months ago. I thought bank 2 was on the passenger side. Same code came back. Then I learned here that bank 2 is driver's side on a Ford. Easy job with a 7/8" box...

Even after four Cummins Rams and a Hemi 2500HD, the 5.4L in the F250 does fine in my humble opinion. I use it for work daily and to tow our 8500~lb 5th wheel. 2600rpm on the flats and 3800-4200rpm on...

My frame or exhaust will occasionally ring in my XLT under load. Not sure what it is but I don't lose sleep about it. What caught me attention was seats. Did you install aftermarket seats in your...

A "yummyummyumm" kind of vibration in the 2-3k~hz frequency is drive train. A jiggling vibration can be suspension or tires. I had the dreaded driveline vibe in my last two 4x2 Rams. Dodge finally...

Wait until that big 1/2" drive drill motor binds and pins your hand against the fender well while installing a 5th wheel hitch! Damn that hurt! With my current truck and that painful experience in my...

I don't know about the 2v 5.4L but my 2010 5.4L F250 does a fine job of towing our 8500~lb 5th wheel around the south east. The Torqshift 5spd transmission makes a big difference too. It wouldn't...
