The 302 had a lot more of a punch than a 300 6cyl, but didn't drink gas like the 351. The best thing about the 302 motor is you can work them hauling stuff all day and then at night go and waste V-6 Camaros and Mustangs. We have a 94 E-150 with a 302, and weighing in at 3 tons this van can waste almost anything. It has transmission problems and when it goes into O/D at 25 mph the 302 keeps going. Bogging, but never stalling.

I agree. I just bought a 92 flareside and I have never had a better truck. I have had chev's and dodges and neither of them compare to the ford. I have had no trouble with mine and expect it to go for quite a while longer.

I recently bought a 92 Ford f150 v8 flare-side extended cab. I wake up everyday and can't believe its mine, All tho it has some problem's such as front gas odometer, passenger door And what I would like to think is vacuum Problem The superiority of the remaining truck is awesome.

My 1992 F-150 has been running great no problems... I paid 2,500 for the 92' about two months ago an it only had 45,000 miles what a steal... My last car was a 93' chevy lumina which was a great car, but gave a lot of problem at the end of it;s run./

Crapping at 175k? Dude that's freaken good. Bad thing is it started breaking at 90k LOL.
These trucks are simple to work on, and parts are cheap. I wouldn't let it go, it's just old and parts will fail like any other car, and Japanese cars have the same thing. I had one with a 6 cyl, and I sold it at 220k miles, and it was still running excellent, and it didn't even burn oil at all, just like a new car.
