My Explorer blew up & left me sit (4.0L SOHC V6 timing chain failure)
Bought this POS for $1,000 and a day after I get it the timing chains start
making a death rattle. It was majorly doctor'd up. Got if off some idiot in
his 20's whose a dealer in the inner city...heard bad shit about the cars
he sells and didnt listen, and now i learned my lesson. I sold the truck a
few days after it blew up for $600. Took a $500 loss...the biggest bust I
have ever taken with any car I've ever sold. Sold it to some old rich
people.....I have no idea why they wanted this POS with a blown motor and
220k miles. They said they were putting a new motor in it. Whatever floats
I'm still trying to figure out why a ghost was in this truck! You can see
the orb fly around as plain as day and go into the dash!

What I have to say about the 1998 Explorer: The Explorer used to be the
ultimate family car back in the late 90's and early 00's right beside the
midsize sedans the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. With about 400,000 being
sold every year up until 2002 it had alot going for it. Why was it such a
good seller? Well it was because it had great rugged looks and it's
versatile interior and room for a family made it such a good seller. The
ergonomics was really good too and the seats were nice and plush and the
Explorer also had plenty of power on tap. There is also many different trim
levels for any lifestyle ranging from the basic XL to a very luxurious
Limited. All in all this sport-ute was one of the best SUVS ever made
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Top 5 Likes & Dislikes (Episode 6)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a capable and
even useful pickup truck that can serve as an everyday drive. But it is far
from perfect. In fact there are a number of areas that need improvement.
In Episode 6 of of this long-term test of the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor,
Roman takes a look at the Top 5 things he likes about the new Raptor and of
course the Top 5 things that he dislikes.
The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is one of the baddest trucks in the land. It can
tow 8000 pounds, seat 5 comfortably, haul all of your stuff and still race
across the desert at over 100 MPH is perfect air-conditioned comfort.
That's why we at TFLtruck choose the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as our
first long term test truck. Usually truck manufacturers supply us with
pickups to test for a week at a time. We wanted to test the best selling
truck in the land for durability and reliability which meant buying a Ford
F-150. But not just any Ford F-150, the most powerful and the most off-road
worthy version that Ford builds.
