The fuel injector was problematic on the W motors. Main problem was
the regulator leaking. Had to replace the on in my 94 W motor, cost
about $400 for the parts, including tune-up parts, and spent a day
working on the truck.

Ditto on the fuel injector or central point injector. Replaced mine around
75K with updated unit. Some have had problems with the egr valve plugging.
I haven't. There was a computer update to fix the egr. I did have the
lower manifold gasket leak, also a fairly common problem. The oil cooler
lines tend to develop leaks. I had one line leak. All in all I believe
most would say it's a sturdy engine. I'm at 98K and still use 5W-30 oil.
Mine has 207,000 and it runs strong, so hang in there with those oil
A Ford explorer tried to pass me today and he couldn't so he gave me
Grandpa here just had to test it, ha ha!
I just bought it, felt the kid was honest about it in what he knew,
and he said they
"boiled the carbon out," of something, said it was a major deal, I
what he told me, and he said all the injectors and lines were just
replaced to. I don't
know what that configuration is, but he said it cost $600 I believe.
I do remember
his saying "spider?" relative to that. Its quiet, almost like an old
caddy or olds goin
down the highway, except for those damn tires slapping the cracks.
to say it was a 4x4. Rides pretty
rough on those cracks too, but I'm real happy with it so far. I told
him I can hardly imagine
that a rig would go that far without at least rings? He was the
second owner, and
didn't know. Steers just a little funny. I mean it don't feel that
tight there. The ball
joints might be bad, but I can rock the fronts back and forth hard
and can't feel
any slop. May be the shocks, they look kinda old, or it may be the
idler arm maybe. I'll
find out when it warms up a bit.
