Hello, I've been here for a while now but never signed in :|)
(Procrastinator Problems)
Anyways I've been working on Fords for several years now, from a 95 Explorer V6 that I replaced head gaskets on, my own 2000 Grand Marquis 4.6L that I replaced all top end gaskets, to my sister's 02 Expedition 4.6L which I almost completely rebuilt the engine with new crank bearings and one new piston & rod, in retrospect I should of replaced it with all new pistons, rods and a new crank shaft, took me about 3 weeks to do because of waiting for parts and outside in November in Kansas, that was my biggest job I ever accomplished, it started and ran good, but still had a slight knock, errr". Anyways I'm no expert but learned a lot from these jobs and learned to appreciate the actual quality of Fords but excluding all the chinese parts that are killing us, virtually if not thoroughly, LoL, thanks for reaching this if you did.
