Hmm potentially your fuel pump could be going bad. When it's driving, have you tried running it hard? As in giving it a lot of gas, or going up steep hills etc.

If it seems to struggle in these...

No problem! I was trying to go into depth on most of the situations I think it could be. But yes, like kemicalburns said, your stock gauges could be faulty and reading cold, and your heater core...

Hmm well off of memory I believe your engine would require a 195 degree thermostat so I'm assuming that's what it has now?

Also, I don't think it would be bad to be too efficient for the cooling...

Haha, you made me write a big post for nothing! Just kidding, I suppose I should have payed attention to the dates also.

I have not used that kit, but it looks similar to my flex-a-lite kit. I'm...

Well I'll give my input on this subject since I do have dual flex-a-lite fans installed on my Bronco for a few years now.

I originally installed them because I though I may get slightly better MPG...

Good luck with your swap!! Makes me super jealous, I will get that done some day, but not until I get a career and my own place! Hopefully it will be within a few years, but school has been going...

Well I don't really know anything about automatic hubs, so I don't know how they are set up. However, I have warn manual hubs and it looks to me like all the pieces are there from mine. The only...

I suppose I'm lucky (or I put too much work into my bronco) because I got 16.2 mpg on my last fil up! Thats with 33" and stock gearing on the 5.0

Well for the front end, my 96 has 213k miles on it and I haven't had to do much other than repack wheel bearings (which wasn't completely necessary either.) However I didn't put all 213k on it. I...

I have a 96 with the 5.0. I get about 14-15 with a 4" lift and 33s so you definitely have something wrong. I have 213k also.

I'm not too sure how the mileage of the 5.8 compares to the 5.0, but...

Yeah, I suppose worrying about the paint could wait until later. Selling your truck to buy a house is a smart move.. I would be pretty upset to let my truck go though.

However, even though I put...

I don't know the exact date they got fuel injection, but I know it was at least in the 80s. Our 88 F-150 was fuel injected, it was a 5.8, but I assume they would have fuel injection on the 5.0s then...
