Also wanted to mention that the 4. . I learned I had blown a spark plug out of my head, taking the threads in the head with it. The 4r70w came behind most 5. Thought I was saving money buying older, nice condition cars, but they cost me more in long run and I would rather make payments and reliability. If it were me I'd definetly go with the truck 5 speed. Any comments good or bad welcome.
I spoke with a service manager at a local Ford dealership and he said he has never known of Ford to reimburse a customer in this type of situation. Ford 's Transmissions are all interchangable within a class as in the f series and suv's, as long as the engine is in the same family as the 4. Also, you have to use a drivetrain that is the same classification or more strict than your vehicle. Did not realize motor problems at first. I am not going to do anything to it. Has a similar conversion been done with a single cab ranger? The motor has 10,000 miles on it and has blown for the 2nd time during this trucks lifetime.
. These are really good motors, 150k isn't much on one unless it was totally neglected. That's how I solve those problems too! As I recall it actually ran. Wondering if some of the group will weigh in with some experience on transplanting a 460 into a 97-03 F150. I was curious of why the engine would seize and did some internet searches only to find it is a common problem with engine year and build. Both options require a heli-coil for the head. The fire started under the hood of the vehicle and it was destroyed.
Top end would fix it but cost over a 1000. . The 4r100 is longer, and requires a completely different setup than what you have now. There were no prior warnings and the current and failure mileages were 270000. Up until this point, the bravest engine swap I've ever tried was a big block Chevy into a '70 Cutlass. The failure was due too water seeping into the cylinders from a defective gasket. Final thought - what you have invested in the truck, your cost basis in it, has nothing to do with what it's actually worth.
I have a 2000 Ranger 4X4 with the 3. I think he used a front plate and tweaked the front cross member. The estimated cost of repair is 3300 dollars. While the contact was at work she was informed that the front end of her vehicle had caught on fire. Was told this will eventually blow cylinder out. He was able to tell me that as long as the vehicle you are pulling the engine from is the same year or newer than the vehicle you are converting, you are ok.
And my transfer case is electronic, so having the adapter would allow me to not have to mess too much with the wiring. I have seen some engines consume less of a synthetic oil than a conventional. I was told by my Ford dealership that if I drove with number 4 cylinder misfiring for an extended period it may cause hydro lock or fire damage to the engine. Personally I feel this is a bit extreme. I would like to know if their is anyone that could help me with this matter. The engine itself doesn't know what computer is running it, just that a computer is telling it what to do. I have a 2000 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4x4 that is near excellent condition.
I have been looking at getting basic New transportation cause I'm tire of all repairs on older models. I had to heli-coil my head to replace the spark plug since there were no threads for the spark plug to attach to. Hope you have a bunch-o-money to throw at it. You didn't mention the viscosity and type of oil you are using. When mine quit, I had the same thought. V-6 in my truck is getting tired and I just wondered if anyone has ever tried or heard of this swap. The failure mileage was 101,000.
As several mentioned a quart every 800 miles really isn't that bad and it is the same expense as changing the oil. Thanks M, I do have some swap mounts, I will have to see if they work. It has 150,000 miles on it. After that, the new 5. The manufacturer was called and offered no assistance.
