I own a 1994 Ford F-150 4x4. Last winter my radiator went bad, and I blew the head gasket, since I was not at home when the head gasket went out, I had to continue on the drive. By the time I got back home, smoke was billowing out from under the hood, and the head and block of my 300 CID was cracked. I let the truck sit for a few days, then got notice that I had to move it, or lose it. I did some breif checking to make sure everything was still working right, and turned the key, after some sluggish cranking, the blown 6 cyl started up, and let me drive it until I was aty a place I could safely store the truck. My F-150 has 188,xxx Miles, and I'm proud of the truck. I'm sorry to hear about all the problems everyone else has been having with their Ford's, but, any vehicle is bound to give you problems.
