Thanks to this list I got my truck to the dealer last week for him to put in a new 4.6. No grief whatsoever. And with months to spare on the

hey all,

got an RV e-450 (v-10/ auto) with what i believe is an emergency brake
assembly mounted to the rear of the transmission. it looks like it's
flinging oil around the underside of the truck.

is it normal, or is there something i can do? the brake drum assembly is
clean, but the mounting for the yoke (?) is oily.

any input appreciated,

Hi Chris,

I purchased an extended warranty on my 90 F-150 when it was new. Great
truck, only ever needed to replace a $50 power steering hose, which was
covered, The only catch was that with a $50 deductible, I broke even.
Definitely never got my monies worth ( I think somewhere around $700 then )
from that ESP, like I said, it was a good truck for the 8 yrs I had it. My
wife's 94 Explorer on the other hand, used up more than the $800 that the
ESP cost us. We've had a new stereo replaced, probably worth $300+. Then
there was a new radiator worth over $475, and just last week, over $450
worth of automatic 4X4 hubs. Oh yeah, almost forgot the new O2 sensors worth
I don't know what. All this was done within the last year, so with the ESP
due to run out this July, we have our fingers crossed that it won't need any
high price repairs for awhile. So, in August of 98, when I bought my 98
F-150 ( traded ole faithful 90 F-150 ), I purchased a 5yr/50000 mi ESP on
it. I can tell you that all 3 times, the extended warranty was purchased
from Ford at the time I took delivery and the dealers have been no problem
in honoring any claims I had over the years. You ask are they worth it, as
far as my first truck, they made money on me because I only had one minor
claim, but in my wife's situation, we came out ahead! Hope this helps.....

I've been giving serious consideration to buying an extended warranty
policy. I found out that they ain't cheap. From a low of about $800 to a
high of almost $1300. I've got some questions and I was hoping that some of
you might be able to clarify this for me.

i have a 99 f150 with the 4.6, my 8th VIN digit is a "W". i guess i am
okay then. it's got just over 13000 miles on it, and no knock or pinging so
far. the accessory drive belt used to squeal between 10,000 and 12,500, but
it has stopped now. it seems to be a greaty engine. nice low end torque too.
