Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

We have a 1993 E150 with a 4.9 6 cyl eng, it is the only thing we have to haul my disabled son around in his wheelchair because it has a ramp in it. We had bought it in 2002 from a ford dealer in NJ, it only had 68,000 miles on it and I think we got taken for a ride when we bought it. There was nothing but issue with it from day one. now it only has 93,000 miles and it over heats all the time even with the stat out... We had a new water pump, still over heated and then we put in a new radiator & still over heating we also I getting sick of getting ripped off by these shops that are just tossing parts at it and not telling us what is wrong. There is no oil in the water as I can tell and not water in the oil, So it can not be heads or just maybe it is. Not sure but like I said we polled the stat and it sill overheats.. Please help up please? Thank You God Bless Rev Frank Michael

Wasting to much gas

Possible things to check/do to increase fuel mileage.

1. Check/Replace Air Filter and Fuel Filter.
2. Check/Adjust air pressure in tires.
3. Perform Tune-up to include (spark plugs, wires, throttle body cleaning)
4. Get fuel system cleaned either professionally(better results but more money) or with additive
5. Clean out car of any excess cargo that you haul around unnecessarily

Can't find the oil filter

guess Your talking about the 4 cyl 2.2 eng? The filter is in the front center of the Eng, under a Black cover that has a Hex top for a Metric wrench,the size of the wrench? I forgot, hey I'm old!. Clean the area around it with an arisol spray like Brake Clean. Just unscrew it and pull the filter out and replace it with a new one, wet the seal around the top with new oil. done

Need to haul power chair and scooter at the same time

If it were me I would make the rear landing bigger instead of having that scooter inside with me .. incase of an accident I wouldnt want that in the car floating around.. you could have a welder make your rear lift a little larger and put a small ramp on it for the scooter also.. just a idea.. thanks Jerry ..
