The guy I bought it from said he replaced the heads, brand new not recons or used. I just assumed he had replaced the plugs also.

I'm thinking I have a mild cylinder 4 problem, probably should do a compression test. I would have if I could find my compression tester.

All the rest of the plugs looked worn but normal.

Put plugs in and it ran as smooth as a baby.

Reset DTC's to get rid of the light.... in learn mode it is still a slight shake but nothing like before. It will probably learn and run fine but might be time to retire it for daily commuting at a distance.

I'll give it to my son when he turns 16 his school is right up the street.

It has over 200,000 miles but I don't know how much more. Would depend on the cluster I put in, the original had 174,000 I think and the new one had like 132,000 when I installed it. I still have the old ODO but can't find a pic of the cluster I put in to confirm mileage.

It burns oil about a quart a month and had a slight tick in the motor sounded like lifter partial collapse. That went away but I could always feel a little shudder.

Ex cab, G2

Took it for a nice long ride, still low idle shaking. I'm going to do a compression test compare 4 to 5 since they are next to each other. If by some luck the compression at crank is fine I have 6 spare injectors I can try one.

uh huh I know already what I'm going to find. Hope I'm wrong.

You still have that 4.0? LOL.

The truck is not bad otherwise but for some reason I don't feel like fixing it any more. I have some big decisions to make and soon.

Sometimes it is good to cut your losses. I did that with my '13 Fusion. It was still in warranty where it was spending more time at the dealership than at home and I couldn't trust it to get me across town much less across the state.

I never really fell in love with it. I always wanted a single cab which I eventually got.

It's in decent shape otherwise, I was hoping to give it to my son when he turns 16 to drive back and forth to school. We live 2 minutes from the school it would probably still do for that.






It's towing the one that will replace it LOL.

Jim, that spark plug looks exactly like the plug I pulled from # - 4 cyl in the old heads that were on my 4.0 when I had a problem with cracked heads. That plug looks like it is coolant fouled. Are you using coolant like I was, do the heads look like they are new?.
