5.4 Miles

So my dad has an 03 F350 xl with a 5.4. It has 155,000 miles and hasnt had any issues. Not one thing has gone wrong with the truck minus 1 coil pack and A LOT of brakes and tires.

The only fluid that has been changed is oil

What kind of miles are you getting out of your 5.4?

I had a 2004 F150 with the 5.4 that I used(not abused). It ran all day everyday for it's life with me putting 100-275 miles a day towing 75% of the time. Spark plugs and brakes gave me the biggest challenges, 1 ecu, lots of tires, 1 transmission at 225k, got rid of it with 240k. It drove like it did when I got it at 17k. I would say I averaged 14mpgs over the entire time I had it. Truck weighed 6500#s, had 355 gears and 33" tires. A couple pounds lighter than the 350 I know.

Those Mod motors will run forever if you take care of them. My 4.6 DOHC looked like new when I tore it down at 100K to mod it.
