    I removed the plenum from my 351 to replace the valve pan gaskets when I put it back together when I start it it runs wide open and has a blackish gray smoke coming out of the exhaust

    Pre 1997 F150 Forum

    Hanky... The last time I had a problem and contacted you via a message such as this was on 10/23/14. All has been well up to now (Nov 2016). Please take a look at my latest entry in the Ford F150 forum entitled "1988 F-150 - Intermittent Ignition".Thank you (Joe Reeves)

    Hanky I'm a newbe. Have a1997 F-150 5.4 worked fine till I parked it Now it won't start. The fuel punp doesn't appear to be working. Checking fuses all good. Checking relays I could hear them click, but no power to the pump. Checked the horn it clicked no horn activation. Same with the PCM relay. The power to the fuse relay box was 12 volts. Any common thread?

    Hi hanky,its been almost a year since we visited about my 7200vv carburetor.Would like to know if you have any info on how to convert to a 2150 carburetor and the Duraspark 2 system instead of the 3 series,ive been told to install new distributor and the blue grommet ignition module.That all sounds easy but nobody seems to know what wiring changes need to be made,they just say you'll figure it out.Personally I'm not rich and am tired of trying to figure things out on this truck but I love it and think that converting it to what an 82 had in term's of setup would be a good and lasting choice. Thanks Randy and hope you're doing well.

    I just received your email regarding the silicone spray. I have never used the spray on door gaskets. Over 30 years ago a friend of mine suggested coating the gasket with cooking oil. Never tried that either, but it sure does make the gaskets shiny! Regarding the CVT dipstick I sure appreciated your advice on how to locate it. My 500 belonged to my Mom who passed in February. I did not realise that it had a CVT. I want to keep it as long as I can. I may "bug" from time to time for your 2 cents worth. Later, Joe

    Hello Hankey, thank you for the advice about the EGR on my brothers explore. I now have a more perplexing problem. I have a 1994 F-150 with a 5.0. The truck was running really nice until I shut the engine off one night, the next morning when I started it, it did not run very well at all. The engine cranked fast like it had lost all compression, one cylinder would fire then the second and the third kind a like an old farm tractor. At idol it ran really rough but when you put it in gear it felt like it had two or more spark plugs fouled out. Of course it had no power. It couldn't spin the wheels in the dirt. Could maybe be the coil I really don't know.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated, thank you.

    I saw you have many post so thinking you must be very knowledgeable..I am not..I read everything i can find, need 2 keys to program own or go to dealer if you only have wants $50 walmart $60 but you get key with it...saw something on using remote starter to help program key if you have only 1.There are several successes with this....
    My question is I saw something on resetting master code by inserting key ,turn to run, wait 15 min, repeat 3 times etc. and it would give key new code...wondering if one did that and some point, beginning, middle or end, placed their "second" new blank key around or on the tumbler or column if it would program both keys same time, since the chip just needs to be in vicinity? ....
