Oh and i wished I could go to the ford dealer for everything!! Trust me nan, but the old lady no way man! And when your on a fixed income its hard to spend that kind of money on factory parts Lol, and it seems if i do call and ask them about parts or whatever it seems like they don't have factory parts because of it's age does that make any sense? I know rock auto is a good place to go though!! And it's good there a site sponser, thats awesome!! Ive just heard that the eec doesn't like aftermarket sensors! So i like to know if there are any aftermarket parts folks have good luck with so i could maybe buy those, if i have to!! Thanks again!!!

It's not an issue with the computer, it's poor quality control of the aftermarket sensors. You may get a good one, you may get multiple bad sensors in a row.

A cheap part have a lifetime warranty, but makes very little sense if you have to "cash in" on the warranty frequently. Trust me, I am a cheap bas**rd who does not spend more money than I have to. If you want to have a reliable truck sometimes you have to pony up some dollars to tip the odds into your favor.

I rarely call the dealer parts department, I walk into the door. After a few trips they know who I am. The human touch is typically the key here.

Makes alot of sense there!! But i was thought the aftermarket stuff was supposed to be up to snuff when they make them!! But when it comes to electrical stuff and emissions I guess that's not always true I guess! I remember once my friend bought ball joints from AZ duralast of course and the diameter of them was larger than the diameter of the holes they went in so they had to be made to fit and air hammered in!! How crazy is that? Not good!!! I also understand you do get what you pay for sometimes one of these days i will get a newer ford truck that i maybe dont have to mess with as much!! Lol

But also for what i paid for it which was $260 bucks not bad at all, in my opinion and about a 1000 to make it driveable, and had it since 2010 ive definitely got my money, out of it at least, i guess anyway plus a little money on some parts here and there! Not bad i guess! I would like to have it until it just rusts apart lol!! I like the truck personally i would like to be able to restore it someday!! Got a body and paint man across the street from me!! Thanks again!!!

Hey sorry for asking so many questions, but when you rerouted your pcv to where the brake booster was do u remember what size vacuum hose you used? I wanna do that next i think? Relatively simple and inexpensive? Thanks!

I think I used 3/8" vacuum line. Same size as factory.

I may consider going to the local salvage yard and getting a TB one that appears to not have the throttle plates messed with! Ive got a couple of you pull it yards close by
