#13 of 53 Intro, 168,000 miles stong as ever!
May 16, 2004 (7:00 am)
Hi, I am Ray.
I have a 1993 Ford F-250 Super Cab, long bed, 4-wheel drive, with a 460 ci. engine and a 168,000 miles. I have had the truck for 2 and a half years. I have had to do some repairs, mainly to the drive train, but the truck is in very good shape, drive great down the road, and runs like a champ, only minor work done to the engine. The gas mileage is bad, but it's very dependable, and pulls 10,000lbs easily. I have had many Ford and Chevy trucks, but I prefer Ford trucks, because they are built so well. The only two negitive things I have to say is, poor mileage, and real bad turning radius, as it has a 8 foot bed. Other than that, its a great truck.
I live in Lake In The Hills, IL.
have owned 140 new and used cars and trucks since I have been driving.
I know quite a bit about every aspect of vehicles.
I am also a muscle car enthusiast.

hey I just bought a 94 ranger. Its got the 2.3L engine and five speed tranny. just wondering, do you know any good ways of boosting power? the engine is a bit weak and I just put 31" tires and a lift and now need some more power to get it moving better. Gear change would work but looking for more power and help?
I have the same cd changer too but with xplod head unit, big speakers and amp

I have a Ford 350 with 26,125. and the oil pumped failed taking the engine with it. Of course it was 6 months out of warranty. I've been working with Middlekauf Ford in Plano who was not very helpful and ultimatley passed me off to the Area Manager for Ford. Oscar, the Area Manager called me to get more info about what happened to my truck. I spent about 5 minutes with him on the phone. He told me they couldn't help me, and then hung up on me when I asked to speak to his supervisor. Has anyone else had this type of treatment with Ford Corporate, if so, how did you handle it.
One other note. NO ONE would give me the number for a regional office to Ford. But I have it now. Once again, NO ONE will take the time to call me back.
#19 of 53 1996 bronco rear end clunk
Oct 13, 2005 (3:40 pm)
I bought a 1996 Eddi Bauer Bronco. I have a problem. After I stop when I go to take off I get a clunk sometimes more than one. It almost feels like the back end drops. I checked my u bolts, replaced the uni joints,checked sway bar brackets, pleeease help. I am lost. I am pretty handy but this has stumped me. Thanks for any help you can give me.
#20 of 53 replacing starter motor
Dec 31, 2005 (10:15 am)
my 93 Ranger needs a new starter. however, i can't see how to get to the starter wire to remove it without first removing the upper and lower mounting bolts and letting the motor then hang down far enough to disconnect the wire. is this safe to do if i first disconnect the negative wire from the battery? or is something else required? any suggestions appreciated.

I also have a 1996 Eddie Bauer Bronco with what sounds like the exact same problem. Did you solve the issue? Any advice would be helpful right now.
#22 of 53 93 ford f350 brakes
Jun 11, 2006 (4:26 pm)
Hello I have a 93 F-350 diesel crew-cab recently I have had a problem with the brakes, sometimes they are power brakes and other times act like a non-power-assisted system would work. I always have brakes it just takes more pedal pressure sometimes. Can anyone help with what I should look at first?
