1991 Ford F150 4.9 inline 6 300 cu.in. from North America
This is a great truck
There are some issues with the old EGR system components, which I think are causing a lean mixture problem, resulting in a bit of rough running at lower speeds in first and second gear. With the age of the vehicle, that is to be expected, I guess. I am about to replace plugs and wires, and continue to search for non/poorly functioning EGR system parts.
I have replaced the starter, O2 sensor, heater hoses, distributor cap and rotor.
I had a brake line fail because one of the fuel filter clamps under the driver's side of the cab rubbed a hole in the metal line. When I bought the truck, it had and still has a non functioning A/C (bad compressor), and I needed to disconnect the A/C wiring at the accumulator to allow the heater/defrost to work correctly.
Also the forward gas tank has malfunctioned and the previous owner disconnected it from the line.
I repaired the window cranks as well, as the side window glass mechanism inside the door wasn't holding onto the glass... the glue they used at the factory had given up the ghost.
I had a problem with the battery not charging... found that where the positive battery cable lead connects to battery post was corroded inside the connector... not around the post as is usually the case... changed the connector... no problem since.
I love this truck! It is dependable, carries a load with no strain, moves on down the highway like it would like more room on the speedometer, and is really comfortable to drive for long distances. It is tough and durable. I'm 69... I plan on driving it the rest of my days, Lord willing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
