Search google. First find out what year the truck is because you said 98 the first time an 97 the next so the recall stuff will be different.

yeah my uncle told me it was a 98 and when i saw it i could tell it was a 97.. blinkers on side of headlights not below.. took a look at the title and it is a 97.. kinda sucks cuz i like the 98s a lot more.. 97 is kinda unly imo.. but its free so cant complain.. and just using my aunts 98 as an example of important recalls..

Ford also has a page on the website where you enter the VIN and they tell you if there is a recall on that vehicle. Click Me

I will be extremely honest in my answer to this question, look it up online or go to a dealer. Hope you had insurance coverage. I have honestly never heard of the engine catching fire from the speed control (i am guessing you mean the cruise control?) considering it is mostly mechanical, but I don't know on the older models.
