Calculate what a new vehicle will cost. I will use theoretical numbers.
40,000 if you have cash. Probably more like 50,000 these days for pickups. (Most never do and finance vehicles for...

howl bad or not so bad, or really bad?? :)

Varsity, what if you just keep driving it?? Mine has howled for 20,000 miles probably. Or can this nut be loosened? Or re-torqued? Or is it too late when it is in "howling" mode?

I understand but don't go to the "dark" side!

I also experienced some problems with my 04 F150 lariat. First year of a new Generation, should have expected issues. Some of the engineering is tested by owners I am afraid. After cam phasers, spark...

My experience with 04 F150 suggests run away

After doing a lot of fixing on my 04 5.4 with only currently 86000 miles on it I am going to suggest you stay away from the 04 year for sure, and go a little newer. This was the first year for this...
