Buyers who need the highest level of power may choose the Power Stroke 7. Interior Regular-cab models seat two or three occupants. Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. And it's all I have now. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms if you have to wait for repairs.
Spark plug fitted into cylinder head One of the main faults with the early V10 engines 1999 — 2005 was that the spark plugs could blow out of the cylinder head. Sounds like a nice combination you have there with your truck specs. Have any information on the manual? Also, packaging can be an issue, as a V10 is necessarily longer than a V8. The guy owned a fleet of V10s and he was just in for an oil change. Sounds like a nice combination you have there with your truck specs.
I've babied it, not a scratch, 110k miles and 12. The V10 is still in use today, found primarily in medium-duty chassis cabs. In 2003, the Ford 427 Concept was home to a 7-liter V-10 rated at 590 horsepower. And that mileage in 15 years barely touches the million mile mark! Ford claims that its heavy-duty models outsell similar models from Chevrolet and Dodge combined. But, as of Ford's new 2011 Super Duty, you can only get the V10 in the F-350 to F-550 chassis cab trucks with dual rear wheels.
No power like a diesel? The mileage wasn't great, but what do you expect? The fact that Volkswagen once equipped certain European-market cars with V5 engines is a story for another day. It would get the same gas mileage loaded or unloaded, so if you tow or plow a lot it does help you out in the end. For that reason, they are exempt from the federal safety requirements that lighter-duty trucks and cars must meet. All models with automatic transmissions have a new transmission-temperature gauge. The guys on here are posting the fuel economy as being the same but that is not our experience.
Also, packaging can be an issue, as a V10 is necessarily longer than a V8. I agree that I probably wouldnt need the 4. I still pee green and always will Well First Sergeant, it is always good to know that we will have people like you to help us lower enlisted out! This was then translated into the power an engine could produce. Ford use a cast iron engine block with an overhead cam aluminium cylinder head design, that uses centrally mounted spark plugs and waste spark ignition. Now I have a bank account that will allow me to drive Orca, my Excurs, up the mountains to hunt and look at the fall colors.
Not that it have been cleaned out enough for a car or truck anyway but that is another rant for a different forum. The fuel economy… If you put 15,000 miles per year on the truck and you do regular maintence, it should last you for 15 years. Mostly I bought the rig for max weight tow of a rear hitched older heavy travel trailer and I got tired of the maintenance and hassles of diesel. Thanks again with the info, you are really helping make the process easier! During a three-year period, 2003-2005, Ford debuted several high-performance variants of its V-10 engine. The V10 was used primarily in applications where Ford truck customers might be looking for a gasoline alternative to a diesel. The aluminium cylinder heads on the two valve per cylinder engines built in the companies Windsor Ontario plant, have a fatal floor in the spark plug threads.
To reduce assembly costs, the new engines were designed to share blocks and bore centers, and a number of other parts. What other services could be included in a warranty? These are going to be crew cab, 4wheel drive, short bed truck configurations. Wouldn't need the snow plow or camper upgrades since thats not a common use, if ever. Also this failure can occur when removing the spark plugs for renewal. I agree that I probably wouldnt need the 4.
However, a 2005 test vehicle evaluated by Consumer Guide returned just 10. Available in the Super Duty F-450 and F-550 chassis cabs, the gasoline V-10 engine will also find its way into medium-duty chassis cabs during the 2012 model year. There's a great thread that was going not too long ago about V10's, I'd suggest reading that thread also. The Modular engine family was marketed under the Triton banner, but Ford abandoned that name after 2010. It produces 362 horsepower and 455 pound feet of torque. Super Duty pickups are available with two-wheel or four-wheel drive and come equipped with an airbag restraint system for front occupants.
V10's are great motors, they'll run for a long long time if taken care of. I was looking at a 05 or newer F250 Supercab, Shortbox but with the Six speed manual. If I drive with the od button pushed and I drive around 65mph I get 7. Why is it than that my stock V10 runs away from my stock 7. The term horsepower was originally coined by James Watt 1736-1819 , a Scottish inventor, to describe the power his engines generated. ? I had an '01 F250 with one and it had plenty of power. What is a Powertrain warranty? They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
