Timing problem 97 ford 4.6

Ive rebuilt alot of engines but Im having trouble with my 97 F150 4.6 L. I took it to a local machine shop and they installed valves milled and cleaned the heads. I have put it in time 3 times and when I turn it over by hand the timeing marks are not right. Are the cams out of time, or am I doing something wrong

I have a 1981 ford f150 4x4 with a 302 engine An automatic transmission that works fine shifts properly going forward But when I put it in reverse I hear a clunk and sometimes it goes into gear and...


If the transmission was rebuilt 2 years ago the fluid and filter did not need to be changed. In a 1981 there are no trouble codes to retrieve so whoever suggested that is out to lunch, Unfortunatley you need to get the transmission rebuilt again, hopefully it gets done better this time. Using the dexron oil in Ford transmissions is something transmission shops do because they don't want to stock different fluids. While it's not likely that using dexron oil lead to the failure it would be better to use mercon or type F oil.

How do i change upper ball joint on a 93 f150 4wd?


Hello there, Most of the upper ball joints on the Fords have to be pressed out and a new one pressed in. You can save your self alot of frustration if you take off the upper control arm and take it and have someone press it such as a local automotive machine shop. you also might be suprised that buying an upper control arm assembly from your ford dealer it comes with a new ball joint installed and in most cases comes with new bushings as well, and it really isn't that much more money. and it will save you alot of aggrevation.

Good Luck and I hope this helps.
