Are these common "issues"
More lame commments and questions ....
Ok folks , I am curious about a few things ....
First , I am told that the leaf spring shackle mounts tend to disintegrate from rust , is this a common issue? My first ranger had this problem , it was hillarious , the bed was flopping around like a fish and sitting sideways , not a difficult repair but this is something I looked at when I got the next one .
Next..The same truck has some serious exhaust problems , it seems the cylinder head has eroded at the exhaust manifold so that both the head and manifold are shot ..is this a common issue with the 4.0 litres ?I was told by a mechanic that this is a known issue and there is no quick fix??
last (for today) , the oil pan has rusted through, it isn't really bad , just topping it up every other week keeps it full and it is more work than this beater is worth to replace it. I haven't heard a whole lot about this being common but my brothers F250 had this problem when it was only a couple years old .
Sorry about the noob questions , just trying to get up to speed on these trucks .
