    I got my 89 ford f-150, 5.0 for free, it hadn't been run for about 2 years, i have only been driving it for 6 months. i put on a water pump thermostat, front and rear main seal, oil sending unit and new gauge, oil pan gasket and now it only runs for about 30 mins befor it shuts off. once it cools down below the temp gauge it will start and run for another 30 mins. It also appears the heads are leaking antifreeze down the side of the block. will new head gaskets be all i need to replace for these symptoms? Or do I have multiple problems?

    i had to replacce many coolant components on mine and it appears the head gaskets are also gone or the head is warpped. the engine only runs for about 30 mins, then i have to wait for it to cool all the way back down and it is good untill it warms up, it has never overheated since i have owned it. I did replace the thermostat with a 210 degree instead of the lower temp.

Car was driving fine for a while but cut off restarted ran rough and got home now wont restart. Has 55K miles original miles. Was driven daily an hour each way. Kinda need back on road cost effectively.


Sounds like a fuel filter. Next I would check the head gasket. See if there is any coolant in the oil. If this was at all helpful, please rate. Thanks for asking.

Drive 5 miles and starts up fine, drive 30 miles and wont restart


Sounds like a fuel pump overheating. Drive until it wont start then check the fuel pressure. If no gauge when it wont start try some starting fluid. You should also check your fuel pump relay.

Hi Robtatt.
I have same problem with my seat ibiza for the past 6/7 months, spent over £300 on trying to sort it out and got no-where. I think i have now finally sorted it. Try un plugging the lambda sensor from the exhaust just behind the engine. If like mine it works fine but the sensor will have to be replaced. Good luck hope this works for you.

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing


Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.
