Questions

I got a few questions I bought my 96 ford bone stock about 3 to 4 months ago and put my straight pipe on and the gauges, and the chip and now it isnt running and it has a k&n filter and I was wondering if you guys think I should keep it or get raid of it. It has 140,000 on motor and truck. Do you think it will mess up alot or should it be pretty reilable

at 140,000 you may need to do a few things to it....it may need a cam sensor....glow plug relay....an injector or two....but all and all...that motor..if its been pretty much taken care of....has a lot of life left...at least odds are that way......its really your call on you comfort level..but i would think keeping hta motor running..cause it should run a long time.....would be cheaper by far than a truck payment......Marc

I know I love the truck I used to have a 2500HD chevy with a 8100 big block and traded down my old one was paid off and this one is now too but I had been wanting a diesel for a while and im not impressed with the life out of a duramax and I found this truck on a truck lot about 60 miles south of my house went and drove it and picked it up the next day. I am just hoping that she holds. I bought a 96 because I love the old body style like that.

I just got my 97 a month ago. It has 160,000 on it. My motor would quit running. I changed the injector o-rings, and the camshaft sensor. The truck runs like a raped ape now. The sensor was about 180 bucks at the dealer, I know it's pricey but it's money well spent. Good luck
