I have an 03 with 60,200 miles on it. Only problem I have had was a bad alternator at 50,000 miles.

Pretty impressvie TK!

Currently I have 146,000 on my '05.
Oil change every 5K with whatever 5W20 is on sale.
Autotransmission fluid change every 30K or so.
Still no problems of any sort since front brake rotors 100K miles ago and rear axle seal 30K miles ago.

I don't own 4.2L

I went to junkyard saw 1999 E250 with v6 4.2L it is original engine. I check dashboard it have over 340,000 miles so I say wow that imposes if it never replace engine so I check oil. It look good but it seem someone keep engine look clean no oil drip.


It was Fleet by SBC telephone. That van look bad shape due rust but engine look clean.

i dont own a 4.2 yet (looking to swap one into my mustang as they are both essex motors and the 4.2 just has a longer stroke) ive got 90k on mine and beat it like no tomorrow at the track and it doesnt leak or anything, ive seen a 3.8 with 450k on it and still running the original belt and battery, basic maintence will go a long way

High Mileage

Have an '01 F150 4.2 with 123,000 miles. I recently noticed a little puff of white smoke at startup on cool mornings. Knowing the history of 4.2s to have intake gasket problems, I decided to have the local dealer replace the gasket, simply because the gasket replacement was fairly inexpensive (about $265) and if it WAS going bad, I would regret saving the $265 and paying for an engine. No more smoke and it actually seems to be a little peppier, Probably from just cleaning things up as part of the job. Other than the gasket, I've replaced the throw out bearing/slave and the alternator, that's it. It runs great and drives great, much better than my old twin I-beam Ranger although the Rangers 4.0 seemed to have a little more low end grunt. All in all, a good truck.

Newbie here and like what I see. I have a 97 F150 I bought in 96. The truck has 400k plus but I changed out the first engine at 245k since I drive long distances around Tx. This engine has about 200k but the odometer quit working about 6 months ago showing right at 400k. I drive about 3k to 3.5k a month. It's been a great truck.

Welcome and hope you enjoy FTE and the 3.8/4.2 forum.

While I'm at it, 155,000 on my '05 with no problems.
