Funny, but I've had big vans since 1986 and my use has become more limited than when I was a Boy Scout dad, a bike racing dad, etc....but it's still useful to move Big Stuff and to pack sloppy. I...

We sold my wife's '98 Sable with 107k on it and I never bothered to change the plugs...it did run just fine. I knew at 100k that the car was leaving us soon. I agree with Tom that seized plugs in...

Disagree. I have seen numerous examples of cop cars, taxis, and trucks with 4.6's with well over 300k miles. I have a friend with a limo company and they regularly get 300-400k miles out of 4.6's. ...

I believe the 4.6 got more threads circa 2005 and am not sure when the 5.4 was fixed. But yours is an early one being 1999. Pre-PI heads.

Over 122k I have tracked every gallon of gas that has...

To the OP, an engine as old as a '99 would have the 4-thread plug holes, and an engine that old could have corroded or weakened threads from...

It is certainly your choice, but the higher load range will make for heavier tires (more fuel to accelerate them, more heat from flexing, harder ride, possibly more noise). And it will hammer the...

What does your door sticker say the stock size and pressures are?

Just because a tire has its max rating at 80 lbs does not mean that it should be run at 80 lbs in all instances--50 front and 60...

I have tracked every gallon that has gone into my van in the 122k miles I've owned it since new in Feb 2003--well over 300 fillups. I have never noted this kind of correlation and recall that some...

Depreciation on a new truck costs far more money than gasoline. They are likely shooting for 18-19 city...
