1991 Ford F150 Custom Inline 6 from North America
Great truck most of the time
In general, my Ford F150 has been a very good vehicle for me. I use my truck primarily for trips to the home improvement store and to haul my motorcycle around. Recently, my truck has been experiencing unusual sputtering. The truck would be running perfectly, then it start to sputter like the engine was going to die. There's a distinctive smell of gas from the exhaust with white smoke. After pulling to the side of the road for 30 minutes, it would be just fine for a little while before I'm stuck on the side of the road again. I changed the coolant temperature sensor, air charge temp. sensor, fuel pump relay, and EEC relay, but I'm still having the problem. I can't seem to figure it out. I've spend more money trying to fix this one little problem.
I get good mileage with this the in-line 6 and have had very little problems with it. It's enough power for what I use the truck for.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

It seems like an ignition module. I think Ford still put them on the side of the distributor in 1992-1993. They short out when they heat up.

Hey. I got a 91 Ford with the 300 6 cylinder. Mine did the same thing!!! If you go through antifreeze and it blows white smoke, it is your head gasket. Replace it and get the head checked for any cracks or it being warped. A new head costs $600, but about 1800 from someone to do it. I just replaced the engine in mine cause my head was cracked in 4 spots. Not good.
