Your truck is a 1997. Ford didn't offer a V-6 in 95&96. The more specific and detailed the information is, the better and faster I can try to help you. Excessive Fuel consumption can be caused by several different failures. A clogged air filter, dirty or defective fuel injector, damaged or faulty EGR valve, loose distributor, change in the timing, increased back pressure, tune-up is needed, or O2 sensors are clogged or defective. These are all possibilities, please list what you have checked, what you have found, and what the codes are (just post the P___, code/s. No need to post what the code means). If you don't have your own code reader. Autozone will read it for free. You will need to keep the car running if shutting the car off will shut off the engine light. Note: Bring someone with you so the car isn't left unattended.

SOURCE: 96 f-150 4.9 dual tanks

Hi! This will mean that the engine is too lean. Please do check the intake manifold gasket and the vacuum lines for they are surely worn and may have cracks on it. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

My anti theft security lite is flashing and my darango wont start how do I fix it I have no remotes to the alarm

There is no remote to alarms when it is a OEM system. Double press the Open button on the door remote. This is a factory installed ant-theft system that comes with the vehicle.

Lower engine knocking, regular oil changes. No warning lights for engine or oil. Do I have any recourse with about 94000 miles.

As a warranty i would not think so, what year,make,model ? Have it professionally inspected, maybe it is not a rod bearing and fixing will not be so drastic, could be water pump,oil pump? Best of luck to you.

13 mpg highway. 2003 2500 4x4 5.7 litre 94000 miles on it. is there some things i can do to help milage?

Unfortunatly there is not much room for improvement on these trucks. A tonnou cover helps, proper tire inflation helps as well. You can get a hi flow air filter like the K&N these help some. You can get a little better milage with the higher Octane gasolines but you have to pay more for the gas which is kind of a wash on this. 12-13MPH is about what I get regularly on my 06 2500 6.0ltr, 14-15 if the wind is pushing and I keep out of the gas. What gears are you using in the rear end. A gear change to 3.73 will improve milage but less power and the gear change is an expensive repair.
