Yes trucks!


Bought a F350 4x4 in 2005, Had 17K on it, it's the gasser regular cab. I was 2 hrs from Quebec told it was a Canadian Ford. (can I tell?) Been a very good truck, less than 80K now. Tires, regular maint. Orig muffler went 15 years, Coil packs always been a problem so had all 8 replaced and plugs too. Bit body rust from up north, it lived 7 years up there. Frame no rust. Good truck.

 Squirt some CRC at the connection where the plug-lead / coil-pack clips onto the spark-plug-end. Corrosion here at the clip is often the reason they'll fail. Having CRC there also means they won't break the next time you remove them to change plugs.

Cheers,

Rastus

If the first digit of the vin is 2, then it was built in Canada. Actually if you post the vin I can run an OASIS report and find out lots about it if you like.
