Phil Auten replied to Jerry Falk's discussion EFI Fuel pump problems in the group Ford F-150's
"If you run the tank completely empty several times it will kill the pump as you describe. If this is not the case, I would see if the store/shop that you bought the pump from will honor any warranty it might have. Otherwise, check the relay as it…"

Gearhead of the Week #82

"Really nice looking job, Kevin. I know your daughter will love it. My first really nice car was a '67 Mustang coupe, 289/2bbl/FMX auto. I loved that car. Unfortunately, my wife "customized" it for me with the rear of a '65 Impala…"

Gearhead of the Week #75

"Classy Dart. I always liked that body style best of all the pentastar mid sizes. If it is black, looks like excellent body work. I think keeping the blower under the hood was probably the best thing you did."

Phil Auten replied to Ryan's discussion Ranger Raptor in the group FORD TRUCKS
"Ryan, I think you should use the Taurus PCM since that is the engine it was designed for. It will "learn the new setup after about 2-3 days of driving. You will also need the cabling to go with it so all the sensors get proper connection. Phil"

Gearhead of the Week #68

"Is it just me or is the engine photo of a Chevy SB 350? The engine looks carbureted instead of injected, but it's a really nice looking engine and compartment."

Phil Auten replied to Barry Chunko's discussion 96 f150 bed bolts in the group Ford F-150's
"Remove the bed bolts(obviously) and then disconnect the fuel filler tube(s). If you have a hoist or A-frame, place some 2X4s cut to the proper length to fit under the bed rails, with another 2X4 connecting them front to back in the middle and attach…"

Phil Auten replied to Ryan's discussion Ranger Raptor in the group FORD TRUCKS
"The Eco-Boost is also used in the F-150, the Flex and the Explorer. Any of those PCMs should work just fine if you use the donor vehicle's wiring harness. There are aftermarket harnesses as well, though I don't know what the cost would be.…"

Phil Auten commented on Martin Adams's group Ford F-150's
"You didn't specify the year, but the twin I-beam front ends usually sagged after several years due ti=o the springs getting old. Had to replace them on my '80, but the '91 never had the problem. Could also be due to a previous owner…"

Phil Auten replied to kevin scott campbell's discussion 2011 Ford F-150 xlt 5.0 Mods. in the group FORD TRUCKS
"First, a low restriction intake like a K&N. Then a programmer. I bought a Hypertech when they were on sale for about $275. Next, maybe a throttle body spacer and then a set of headers and exhaust system. Those items should give you the most bang…"

Phil Auten commented on Stephen Foster's blog post Freeze plug advice '95 YJ 2.5L
"Richard's idea is a good one. If you don't want to use the expanding rubber plug, try this: After getting everything out of the way, use a right angle drill adapter (available cheap at several stores) and drill a h*** in the center of the…"

Phil Auten commented on Martin Adams's group Ford F-150's
"Paint, Charlie57? Looks really nice in the pic, but is that before or after? On my old '91 the speakers in the doors were a 6X9 or so in the back of the door and about a 5" round in the front. That was with the factory AM/FM radio only.…"

Phil Auten replied to elvis gregory pelletier's discussion 1990 F-250 XLT Lariat 4x4 in the group FORD TRUCKS
"A 12 bolt rear axle is GM. Most likely you have a Dana 60. The Dana 60 is one of the strongest axles available. As for where to start, I would check out the differentials front and rear for wear. Check the u-joints as well. The first thing to break…"

Phil Auten commented on Gearhead's group FORD TRUCKS
"Seriously, apply your right foot VERY LIGHTLY. Keep your speed down as much as possible. Using these two principles, my '09 F150 with the 4.6 3-valve/6-speed auto is giving me 22.5 MPG and climbing. Phil Auten"

Phil Auten replied to James G Tangen's discussion spray on liner in the group FORD TRUCKS
"Hey, James, it's YOUR truck. Do it to suit yourself. The bed liner should reduce or eliminate a lot of road noise in the cab, especially if you do the area behind the seat, too. Since it comes in lots of colors now, maybe you could match the…"

Phil Auten commented on Martin Adams's group Ford F-150's
"Very well could be a simple vacuum leak. Check the hoses 1 at a time, best if you just replace them. They may need replacing anyway. Also check the PCV valve. It should rattle when you shake it. Last but not least, press the brake pedal with the…"
