    Ok I need a daily driver and my budget is around 5k Ive found a F150XLT extended cab. It has dual gas tanks with a 5.0 liter V8 the interior/exterior is WONDERFUL has new exhaust and only 119k miles. Its a 1993 and they want 4800 for it. What do I need to look for in these vehicles Thanks all

    I've seen a lot of ticking 302's, and for some years the Ford small blocks were prone to cracking exhaust manifolds.
    If it's a 5spd, the trannies were made by Mazda...and do not have a good reputation. Mine made noise, one I drove lost the 3rd gear synchros, and I know of another that self-destructed. And that's all I got to say 'bout that
    I admit I do sometimes miss my 91 (XLT Lariat /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif) but I did sell it because it pissed me off /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif/forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Good luck with the purchase. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    Oh yeah; check the oil pan. A shop said they had never seen one so rotted before. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    i sold a 91 a while back, no 5.0 trucks with 5 spds i think, so if its an AOD, just make sure it shifts good and o/d works, also check for ticking, smoking, and oil usage...4800 is an awful lot... i think you could take it away for 3200 or so
