engine needs valve jobs and head gasket

changed timing cover didnt check postion when pulled out

how to clear an airlock on my truck or the cost to have it done

Ok, my truck was rear ended whil parked in front of my house, part of the damage was to the rear end, she hit my left tire which bent the leaf springs and tweeked the rear end. I also noticed that the check engine light is on and the overdrive switch on the shifter is blinking. Her insurance company says this wasn't caused by the accident, I say bullshit, I've never had any problems with this truck.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible? I need ammunition for the upcoming battle with her insurance company.

code p1451 come up not sure what part to use a few similar come up

Tranny has droplets of fluid on front of pan.This is a 4.2 automatic shift 2 wheel drive. TOOK A TRIP ABOUT 300 MILES THEN NOTICED IT WAS LEAKING IT WAS OK BEFORE THE TRIP.

ONLY HAVE 74,000 MILES ON IT..THIS HAPPEN AFTER ALOT OF RAIN FROM IRENE STORM IN SEPT. WENT AWAY FOR 6 WEEKS AFTER STORM, WHEN I CAME HOME IT DIDN'T ACT UP. YESTERDAY I WENT TO START IT, AN WOULDN'T KICK OVER RIGHT AWAY. I TURNED THE KEY OFF AN TRIED AGAIN AND IT STARTED AS SOON AS I TURN THE KEY. BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO DRIVE IT, THOUGHT I WOULD GET STRAINED. SOMONE SAID THAT IT MAY BE A CIRCUIT WIRE. WHICH I DID HAVE ONE FIXED ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO. I UNDERSTAND THERE IS 5 OR 6 OF THEM AN IT WOULD COST ALOT IF I HAD ALL OF THEM CHANGED. SOMEONE SAID THEY CAN PUT A CHECK ON WHICH ONE IS GIVING ME TROUBLE AND CHANGE JUST THE ONE'S THAT ARE BAD. IF THEY CHANGE ALL IT WOULD COST ME 1600 TO 1800 DOLLARS.. IS THIS THE COST, AN CAN YOU TELL ME IF THIS MAY BE THE TROUBLE?

i have a 1997 ford f-150 v6 4.2 and the problem i am having is when it idles it jumps between 500 and 700 rpm and acts like it wants to shut off and when its in gear at a red light it does the same and then i push my gas to go and it almost stalls out on me but when i get going it runs good. why would it be doing that

the shifter will not shift into any gear

Is it the head gasket leaking/ Thought it was rear seal but seems to be dripping from motor and running extremely rough.

put new gas in---no start. Is it a clogged gas filter, fuel pump, corrosive connections???

took my guy a week i figured a day maybe two

no codes shown however motor has miss all defected coils replaced. hose on back of intake manifold missing cant find where it goes

IS this the ame problem as the 2007 exploer has the symtoms on the 2007 explorer recall are the same as on my 1997 F150 thx Rick
