02 sensor does make a difference if it's over 100k or so. The sensor becomes "coated" and reacts slower with the rich/lean signals. It become "lazy" as we call it. Rather then switching 10-15...

The ABS is for the rear brakes. There is a sensor on the pumpkin and it pokes thru to a mag pickup on the ring gear carrier. I'm sure the problem will be electrical. Unplug and clean the...

Air pump and whatever......

I did the same to my 97 250. Gale Banks stainless exhaust and muffler built my own bypass pipe. I built a spacer out of 1/4" aluminum to block off the EGR. The position sensor can still move up...

High Altitude Package

I recently picked up a virtually new 97 F250 in Prescott AR. 460, 5 spd, an absolute dream, particularilly for this kid from MN. Older and rust free is very hard to find. Question: I have the...

With that mileage, I'd be splitting the transfer. This has nothing to do with how much the fwd was used, just a function of mileage. The oil pump, internal on the transfer case, is secured with a...
