Find the right parts for your repair today. So it was better to change both of them. From 'Mutant Pony' - You can use 5. I started seeing the same issues again, but this time, having no money, I just settled for keeping a jug of water and coolant in my truck in case my radiator decided to act up. His gauges dont work so he didn't know it was overheating. Eventually winter came and I had no problems. Back again some years later.
The entire cooling system was covered in thick brown gunk. You need a tork ranch and your truck manual to know the right tork number. So I ended up replacing the factory radiator cap with a new pressure relief one - which is awesome. Overall surprised with payload I've loaded 2000lbs no probs. This module is behind the stereo next to the gauge cluster.
I still get the misfire error code too. Especially before it starts getting hot. I bought it used and it had some problems, It gave me 15mpg. A week ago I was on the road and 6 cylinder misfired. I would like to get this fixed.
Now I get 22 mpg, not bad for an old truck. Check the underside of your oil fill cap. And also, your head gasket can be change. Since then its had these issues. We removed Both heads and inspected everything. Seems to be a tough truck so far. To burp it, run it for just a couple minutes, shut her down, wait for water to get heat from engine- maybe 5 minutes-then open the valve, close when no more air comes out-just water.
Allied Motor Parts has over 150 years of experience of remanufacturing automotive and light truck cylinder heads. Please or to join the conversation. I haven't figured out if I've had coolant running in my transmission yet. I also got a new spark plug for cyl 6. Unless a massive sudden breech in the system happens like a blown water pump or a blown hose , a vehicle should never make it to the point where the entire radiator is empty, and if that breech does happen a driver should know how to recognize the signs and what to do. This engine has become very well-known for its durability, and is common to find engines running strong at 300,000 miles and beyond.
It will tell anyone anything about piston rings or oil pressure. It ran fine for awhile but eventually the same problems returned. I immediately took it in and had the radiator flushed. When this happens, coolant can leak into your oil, which can damage your engine. The timing chain it's each 300 000 km and timing belt is at each 130 000km.
You need to swap out manifolds as well as change out headgaskets and other parts. In 1991, it was updated with lower-friction pistons, a strengthened block, roller camshaft and other changes that resulted in a power rating of 145 hp and a torque rating of 160 ft·lbs. You can also mill down the butterfly to blend in to the shaft for a smoother air flow. A few months later my truck started overheating periodically and I could smell and see a loss in coolant. We noticed a very small crack in the head gasket around the cylinder with the coolant. This never should have happened. Even though my temp gauge was was showing normal levels I could tell that once stopped that the engine was overheated.
I am taking it to a mechanic tomorrow but hoping for some answers as to what the other problems could be. I brought it home and let it sit for a week. That's what I did, I'll never own another Ford!! I had all the filter and gasket and fluid changed along with the front seal because it was leaking. So i guess i just want to know if we're on the right track. Within our 25,000sf plant located just south of Atlanta, we have a large selection of cylinder heads to cover most all makes and models. So according to them I didn't have a blown head gasket.
Took it to our trusty mechanic shop. Post back when you find out of the crank can be turned. The thermostat was again replaced. No obvious gunk or scoring. New coolant in place and it was ready to test drive. I have replaced the heads, head gaskets, rockers they are another problem with these garbage motors they were out prematurely , push rods and lifters.
