SOURCE: Trying to drop the oil
done this on several i-6 f-150s. slide back or remove transmission, remove motor mount bolts from frame(not motor), jack motor up as far as possible without damaging egr valve or wiper motor when they hit, shim under motor mounts so that when you drop the jack the motor does not come back down any(the motor is well balanced on the mounts, it will not fall out of the truck like a v8 will), then remove the oil pan. you May have to remove the pickup tube(usually not), and you May have to rotate the crankshaft so that the lobes clear the oil pan. this is a common problem with these trucks due to the size of the oil pan(Huge), and the minimum pan to crossmember clearance

SOURCE: Removal of oil pan?
The car has three mounts in a triangle configuration. The front trans mount, the passenger side motor mount and the rear motor mount. I do not know if anyone has ever successfully raised the engine to slide the pan out, but remember, if you do this, the pan goes back on with anaerobic gasket maker on it, so make sure you can slide it out with grating on the underside of the block. If you can't, then it will likely be impossible to get back in place without smearing the gasket maker all over and making a heck of a mess. The commonly accepted way to remove the pan is to remove the two front subframe bolts and allow the subframe to drop enough to get the clearance you require. The bolts are 18 mm heads and are really torqued on there so you will need a serious breaker bar and cheater bar to go with it. USE SOLID JACKSTANDS or BETTER YET, RAMPS to do this. The force you will need to apply can take the car right off a single jack.

Aux heat pump maybe failing. Its on the passenger side by the battery. Follow the hoses. Its moves water to the heater core.

First thing is to understand you will most likely have to run all new speaker wire as the head unit in your car has everything external to the head unit (power amplifier, fader). The plastic around shifter pulls up off, then remove wood surround. Remove ashtray, pull face off head unit usually by sticking fingers in cassette area and pull. There will be plastic tabs on the bottom of unit push in and pull out on head unit, pull slowly so you can inspect wires for placement. Again rerunning speaker wire should be done to preclude external amps and fader switch and power antenna if yours still works.
