Most Dependable Van I ever owned

by from on November 28, 2010

Drove a lot vans and this the best ever. Beautiful conversion package. The 4.9L engine has been very dependable. Also has great suspension.

I bought the E-150 new and had numerous problems with the transmission (E4OD) and every time I took it in to have it checked (under warranty) I was told there was nothing wrong with the tranny. I took it in so many times to have repairs done that the area Ford Rep, told me not to ever bring it in to a Ford dealer for repairs. I was jerked around until my warranty was no longer honored. I have since had a local transmission repair shop build it w/o using Ford parts. No problems since rebuild was done. The engine experienced serious over revving problems and Ford said the engine could not over rev as they have an over rev limiter on the engine. I had the oil analyzed after one of the over revving experiences and it showed the oil was totally destroyed (oxidized). This doesn't happen under normal operating conditions. Ford treated me really bad on this vehicle.
