1987 Ford F150 Custom 302 5L 6c trans
One very good truck
Some coolant leaks.
Replaced the alternator before it went bad.
It had a tranny leak, but easy to fix.
Power steering leaked (my fault).
Steering was loose, but tracked very nice.
Changed the tranny fluid/filter, and soon after, when I would decelerate by releasing the gas pedal, it would pulse in and out of 2nd and 3rd gear, down around 35-45mph. It cleared up in a couple months.
One good truck that never left me stranded or gave me any trouble that wasn’t easy to fix.
The gas mileage wasn’t that good when I first bought it, but I modified it and practically doubled the gas mileage.
I was driving in some really nasty weather and the right tire just caught the slush and it slowly started to pull me in. I released the gas and every so gently tried to correct, but lost control anyway and ended up hitting a tree. It was one tough truck, it was still running. It saved my life, I would have kept it, but I have too many projects as is. It was my first truck and thankfully It wasn’t my last.
I miss my truck!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
