    I have been without my truck since friday, and i know that this thread has no real point. i just need to blow some steam! haha, so i have been looking out side at it with a big puddle of Royal Purple under it, and it makes me wanna cry. i guess im gonna take it to someone to check it out monday. i normally do my own work (between me and my dad) but between school and lots of other things i dont really have the time. so i guess im gonna get someone to fix it for me. UNLESS its a new motor. ill do that. i dont trust anyone to do something like that.

    It sucks not being able to drive mine. I went about 3 months waiting for money on a clutch, and then as soon as i got it fixed another problem came up and for the first few months i got to drive it again it sucked because it ran like crap and then the starter went out. But as soon as it was fixed again, i loved it.

    Throw a rod or something?

    The good thing about the first gen engines is they are easy to find in good shape.

    Hope it's something simple though, sucks being off your wheels!

    I haven't been able to drive mine since LAST friday. Thats right, over a week now. Its been terrible and there is no end in sight. Still waiting on replacement steering rack bushings since they sent me the wrong ones.

    At least I have my mom's '07 F250 to drive around in the mean time, but I miss my truck.
