My son has a 2001 ( I believe) Ranger, which is approaching 400,000 miles.
No major engine or transmission repairs, I think he has put in a couple of rear axles.
He drives it about 150 to 200 miles per day.
Love his little truck.

'01 F150 4.2
182,500 miles now.
I always use 5w-20 full synthetic every 4-5k miles.
At 180,100 auto transmission started slipping bad.
Overdrive 'OFF' light started to flash.
Overdrive was gone. Started hunting thru gears.
$1800 on remanufactured transmission @ Certified Transmission.
Doing good again.

That would be the 4.0L, not the 4.2L.
Totally different engines. But the 4.0 was a good one tho!

A whopping 13,000 miles on my '07, and my usual driving is half-and-half local/freeway. I took it on one road trip on a pretty flat, straight road with a 60MPH speed limit. About 200 miles round trip. The mileage was incredible according to the gas gauge but I neglected to go fill it up and check it. I have a feeling that under conditions like that you might get somewhere around 20-23 MPG, but that's guesswork.

Thanks,

Have a 2001 with 160,000 +
Running really great except rear seal oil leak.

1997 4.2L F150

I love my Truck! Had to start off with that. But like a typical woman she is testing my patience lately. Had a misfire on cylinder 1. After replacing plugs and wires last year during routine up-keep i replaced the ignition coil first 3 days ago. Next morning while warming her up for the 45 mile drive to work....MISFIRE cylinder 1!!! Any ideas??

Look at replacing the DPFE Sensor. I replaced every sensor on my girl, But found it to be the DPFE sensor was bad. I got all the same readings you did. It fixed the issues and ran great after that.
