    E4OD issues

    My 92 has started having issues with hard shifts and engine bogging down at idle when stopped. I’m not very familiar with the E4OD trans and am in no way an expert when it comes to transmissions. I wish I knew more about them. But hopefully someone on the site will be able to shed some light on...

    Got a 92 f150!

    My father in law was tired of seeing his truck sitting in his yard so he offered it to me. Went to his house with a trailer and hauled it back. It runs but has a random high idle so I'm thinking idle air control valve for that. It also has a motor mount broken and a cracked exhaust manifold...

    Working on the 50 ford again!!

    Since the upholstery is being replaced soon I started taking out the leaky heater core that was mounted in the Magic air box. Now that it is out I think it's time to clean the box up and repaint it. Also found a whole bin full of parts so I don't have to order as many things as I thought...

    Cracked overdrive servo cap??

    My dad has a 01 edge that started pouring trans fluid out Saturday from the pass side of the trans. It's a 2wd with a 3.0. I looked into the leak and found that in gear you can see a crack on the cap for the overdrive servo (closest one to the front of the trans). My question is should I just...

    Intermittent Wiper Switch Conversion

    So I learned something new today at work and thought I would pass the info along. I was working in a 88 f150 that had the intermittent wipers and would randomly just quit working. So I was going to put a non intermittent switch in. At first my boss explained witch wires he thought needed to be...

    Thinking about selling the 98....

    I have come to the conclusion that I have waisted too much time and money on the truck over the last 2 1/2ish years. Now the trans is starting to flare from 2-3 gear up or down shifting when it's warm. I called the trans shop that rebuilt the trans but I'm waiting for the owner who I know fairly...

    Did my first set of cam phasers!!

    Completed my first set of cam phasers on a 05 f150 5.4 3v at work today. Got it done slowly at around 7 hours but I know what to do next time to shave the time down. It's a lot like the old 2v mod motors just a little updated. The only thing I don't like is having to force the valve cover in...

    Pulled my first car with the new engine!!!

    Pulled my wife's Honda with my truck yesterday and it ran surprisingly well considering I have not gotten my custom tune yet!! Taking off I realize that the 3.55 gears will eventually have to go for something around 4 or 4.10 if I want to pull anything that heavy or heavier in the future. She...
