I'm a technician at a Ford dealership and I've never seen a 4.0L with anywhere near 300K on it, but it may just be me. I see 4.6s and 5.4 powered trucks go over 300K easily, and do I even need to...

I'd have to advise against a Ranger. I have a 2008 with the 3.0L, and I'm not a fan at all. If I didn't owe $12K on it I'd get rid of it (financing older vehicles is a big mistake by the way, learned...

I'm a tech at a Ford dealership, and unfortunately I can confirm that there is no such thing as a 3 door Fiesta in the US. You can get the 5 door or 4 door and that's it. The 5 doors are not bad...

It's about time to change the oil, so I think I'll run a can of Seafoam in the gas, and half a can through the brake booster vacuum line and half in the oil, drive it for another hundred miles or so,...

I've never gotten more than 18 MPG in my '08 Ranger with a 3.0L. ****ing ridiculous, I may as well be driving a Mustang GT. Of course it is pretty much the exact same engine that was in the '91...

I saw the Misfits Friday night and there were actually a couple people there wearing earplugs, so I don't think it would stand out that much. I personally don't ever worry about it. Of course to be...

I'm not sure exactly how many I've seen. At least three, probably more. And are we counting girls who dress like guys or just vice versa? Because I see that all the time.

For the most part, those old FWD GM cars are to be avoided. At least up until they started using the transversely mounted 3.8L. That is a pretty damn good engine.

I have thought about that, either a CA18DET or SR20DET swap. Still, it's unlikely I'll ever do anything that drastic to it.
