2010 Ford F150 XL 4.6 2v from North America
Replaced brake pads, u-joints and tie rod ends.
This is a great truck, 4.6 2v V8 powerhouse! The same engine that powered cop cars and taxis for 300,000 miles easily in Crown Vics and Grand Marquis! I have the work truck with just the basics such as roll down windows and rubber floor! Less to go wrong!!
Since day 1 I never had a lick of trouble; just basic maintenance to keep her running good! Changed the coils and plugs and keep full synthetic oil in it, and keep up with all maintenance! I'm not easy on this 2 wheel drive long bed; it hauls huge loads of rock, gravel, dirt and firewood with no problems! Love the ease of working on this truck too; you can see and work on the engine if needed. Love the 4.6 2 valve and I believe this was the last year it was put into an F150 pickup.
Fires right up in below zero weather, lots of passing and pulling power, good braking; even with almost 250,000 miles it looks and runs like it came off the showroom floor! Averages about 17 MPG in summer and 15 in the winter. This truck is a reliable tank. I like it so much I want another one for when this one rusts out in 10 years, so I'll have a backup! Best vehicle I ever owned, along with my old 2000 F150 4.2 V6 and a 94 Grand Marquis!
