Question about 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty Super Cab

1 Answer

Thanks for helping on the gear oil weight. The truck I have has a utlity bed on it. I believe its the heavy 3/4ton 2WD. I dont tow anything but it has 259,000 miles on 2001. Its equipped with the Triton V8. Very strong running truck that I would still drive anywhere in the U.S. Just want to change the gear oil cause I just have a funny feeling it might look like a light chocolate milk.

If it looks like light chocolate milk then you have water in the gearcase and you should renew the bearings and seals prior to lube change out otherwise 90-140 weight will work in these

What is the towing capacity of 4wd 1998 grandcherokee laredo, 4.0 ltr


You can tow just about anything with anything if you have the right gearing. BUT, Your limit is set by the kind of hitch (class rating) you are going to use. I use a simple rule of not towing anything more than double the weight of the vehicle you are pulling with. In towing heavy loads you will need an electric trailer braking system, stabilizer bars, lighting harness addition (applies overall...some require an add on module additional to wiring to prevent system damage), heavy duty radiator and an external transmission cooler. (also, more frequent trans fluid changes, best to use synthetics)
If you will be towing on a regular basis, I'd also look into getting the "police package" in regards to sway bars and shocks (all around) as it helps with control.

How much weight should i use in the bed during winter


I would not recomend running a 2wd in heavy snow but if you are going to anyway I would say put enough weight to level the truck out. You usually see that the rear of most pickups are slightly to moderatly higher than the front. So level it and you should invest in some chains if you haven't already. They make a huge differance.

What is the to capacity of a 2006 kia sportage i don't have the owner's manual and want to tow a trailer


Most cars are about 1/2 ton capacity(1000 pounds) Towing a small trailer should be fine as long as the weight at the hitch ball is less than 200 pounds. Load the trailer so the most of the weight is on the trailer not your car.Remember to keep the tire pressure correct on the trailer and your car and give yourself plenty of stopping space as the car will respond slower with the extra weight. Also try to take off kind of slow and easy so you dont over work your cars transmission. An add on type auxillery transmission cooler is recommended.
I hope this info helps you.

Do you need to have a oil coolent fitted for towing with pt


It depends on how heavy of a load you are towing. If it's your stated amount, you should at least have a transmission cooler added, unless the vehicle came with a tow package that included it. I would assume that your hitch weight will be around 100kg, and I don't think you need overload rear suspension parts for that, unless you also fill the back of the cruiser with heavy stuff. (You need to consider your total load, not just the trailer) Rick

1998 Windstar w/o tow package need solution to increase tow capacity


You may be getting into a very dangerous situation. You definitely need a tranny cooler, a brake controller installed in your van, electric brakes on all wheels of whatever u r towing, an oil cooler (engine), and u still may be in big trouble. Factory towing packages usually include heavy duty brakes, alternator, heavy duty suspension, bigger tires, sway bars, etc. So even w/ some add-ons u still won't match a factory set up, meaning u shouldn't tow that much weight. Check out edmonds.com/ownership/howto/articles/44921/page001.html for more info, be careful, and good luck, countrycurt0
