What's the Most Reliable Ford F-150 Engine? V8 or Turbo V6 - Dude, I Love or Hate My Ride @HomeMay 03, 2020
Hi Tommy, which Ford F-150 do you think is more
reliable? Is it the one with the coyote 5-liter v8 or is it the one with the twin-
turbov6, the one Ford calls EcoBoost? We're going to find out in this very special episode of a guy I
homeedit, so Tommy how are we going to find out? We have two owners, both with 2013 F-150 S, one with the 3v EcoBoost, one with the 5 meter Coyote and us. let's get them talking about their experiences over a period of long term ownership of these two trucks with over 230,000 miles hi I'm Roman from TfL and I have a case here to show off Avalon King's do-it-yourself ceramic coated hands Inside the kit is all you need to apply it to your car or truck, just wrap the cloth around the foam pad, apply drops of Avalon King and wipe it on your vehicle, wipe it down after it dries and you're done.
Evelyn King uses nanotechnology to seal every pore on your vehicle's surface to form an invisible, semi-permanent shield that can last two to three years, the coating produces a glossy, glass-like finish on your vehicle's painted surfaces, headlights, rims and glass, and even better, it makes cleaning dirt, mud bugs and other insults to your vehicle's paint so much easier, it's like car wax on steroids. get your own bottle and seed for yourself click the link below and use code fast lane 25 for $25 off now let's go back to our regular scheduled video and then at the end of the show we'll show you how to ship videos because Andre has an idea, Tommy and he wants to know which is the
reliablebrand, is it Ford, is it Ram, is it Chevy, is it Nissan or is it Toyota?
More Interesting Facts About,
what s the most reliable ford f 150 engine v8 or turbo v6 dude i love or hate my ride home...
So we'll tell you how to send videos with a very specific question but first let's take a look at this truck who owns it this is Phil this is the 2013 model with the three point five people in a new one with only five miles on the odometer has maintained meticulous records on
whatit has done to this vehicle and it now has two hundred and forty eight t thousand miles on it so this is a high mileage EcoBoost ok pass the video can't wait for a tear TfL truck this its my 2013 F-150 back on EcoBoost this is a 3.5 157 wheelbase this is one of the things i was definitely looking for with this truck oh well yeah these scraps are really hard to come by getting a longer bed to a six and a half bed there are plenty of those short little ones but i bought this
mostly for hunting and then for my farm the truck is all bone.
Haven't done anything no tuner nothing under the hood I do most of my towing a pintle hitch here inside the bed again just random stuff for my last job all I did was just throw this connector quick here for my winch just did tons and tons of small changes air filters and tires mostly a lot of tires so here inside the truck i have my laptop open this is my maintenance log maintenance sheet first year pretty much none of that repeat here is a it's called oil treatment basically we get t This is the guy he used he's here in New Hampshire with me basically this rust test and keeping these trucks clean soon after I noticed I had a truck at O'Meara Ford in Colorado, about 80,000 I had a couple problems on the 70K here I'll call it a little minor because I'm pretty used to it now, but at 60,000, how to speed up the body and then unfortunately to 70,000 just seven or eight or ten thousand miles later I was on a cross country trip and it was uh and I think Indiana Illinois and then finally Ogallala Nebraska finally got a fix.
I found that this truck really likes fellow throttles. I think I can honestly say if I went through this entire list. one now this truck likes the throttle body it's like a fat kid with cake probably uses one every 30,000 miles I can change these faster than a tire I could just pop the hood out more tires more snow tires more stuff more throttle bo dies really nothing too crazy here here's a current a lot 247 990 finally lost a muffler and probably thousands of miles ago just got new order will put it up this afternoon just bought some guitars of the day and just had a lineup actually just went The second lineup on this truck.
It was barely out of spec. The trucks have been really good on the tires. I just drive a lot so you use a lot of them up here. This is kind of my running total. Excel just adds this for me about 2,400 unchanged 380 and electrical stuff 330 mechanical stuff
enginestuff again I'm going to say most of that was actually a deductible for an exhaust leak exhaust manifold leak on the right side and it's actually a leak again i have probably put another one from that man soon a little under 900 brakes almost 3500 for tires and wheels again this is an improvement this is just buy tires and wheels and another 3900 again a big part of that is just the factory ESP warranty the other 1400 be the things like the fluid films and the oil underneath and that kind of thing that is the mouse 247 nine eighty one point nine hundred and forty seven thousand won 5-1 with a check light trailer
engineon just because i had to turn the key to make these things appear just did a two thousand mile trip got about 10 mpg they were telling a key skid steer and something else than o I forgot everyone but about ten miles now it's a normal trailer unless you have something really heavy really weird behind it the lifetime average is only about 12 mpg.
I did not buy this to be a hand rig. I bought it because I wanted a truck to have on our farm, like a lighter duty truck. I found it just does a bunch of the stuff you know with the exception of payload like our diesel trucks you can drop three or five thousand pounds in the back of a but oh my gosh they just don't drive like that so so that many of our trips we make lighter. Duty stuff, we'll grab this so the inside isn't a fan. Cy Cabela's seat covers have WeatherTech mats on the bottom.
I bought this because we hope a family hasn't used it much for the kids, but it can easily adapt to the hike here. Get a toolbox below. a couple of moving blankets if i need to padding anything i have a battery box that goes with this winch here just to haul stuff on the tow truck it's a little dirty as you can see again most of this is just a function of these liners of oil my friend david does this he drills a little hole in the corners of the cab here's like a 360 degree gun shoots oil chainsaw oil but we get this just nice under the layer of a little bit of film but i mean to the two hundred thousand mile truck in the northeast and the leather not an ounce of ross which means it's solid as can be one thing i noticed i put the aftermarket wing mirrors on these they are just a bolt on from amazon , that's one of those things on my list there they're probably 200 bucks or so pretty much Ch
lovethe truck was a little disappointed when it was eating the throttle bodies but yeah You keep up with the maintenance I mean I'm very helpful I can do a lot of these things the only thing I didn't do was the exhaust manifold.
And I won't next time that's not my cup of tea, but I'm replacing the muffler today. I have done all the brakes. I have done everything. story thanks guys i think we'll tweak it a bit yeah omg how many of you have done all the oil changes on a vehicle with 250,000 miles on it? looks like he's done a lot of throttle bodies as well now looks like he still loves this truck cares about this truck and the fact that it's from the northeast with this little rust on it is pretty amazing it just goes to show if you use the right stuff inside of the entire vehicle below them can last with salt however it seems the ranch hand in the front hasn't fared as well yes that crash bar is pretty rusty so now the question is how It's been done by one owner with basically the same year the same truck but with a V8 under the hood, so who's the next belly? ok next we got Andrew ok Andrew has another 13f 115 this time with a five liter bought it five years ago bought it used with 67,000 miles on it and now it's up to 230,000 so he's put a lot a lot of road time on this vehicle ok cant wait to see how this compares to the EcoBoost feature video could this be the TfL truck of the morning hi my name is Andrew Cummings ok this is a 2013 f-150 5.0 and I think it has been very very exceptional I have had the vehicle for five years when I bought it it had 60 and a few thousand odd miles bought it from the Ford dealer the engines have never had anything major mechanically besides cracks in the coolant line so there's just pretty the biggest thing that was never replaced besides the wheel bearing other than this truck never had anything major replaced there's a couple of things that could have been done better that they really haven't I like ha and as year there is no 49 man used this here came out of a a few times is no more but i show you the van from the mileage room they will still be like wow it has backup camera but its a quality
fordi guess which was not a constant training in 2013 because it doesn't work with works when it wants to, blue screen appears, nothing appears, then sometimes it appears works fine, in general, the quality of the truck for me and my family, and for
whatI do at work it's been very very good i don't have chickens how it turns on and off when he wants it like a Ruttin Ilex
hometype pressure sensor that's another faulty thing that showed up I've had a problem with you I average fourteen point seven miles, but that's two hundred and thirty. three thousand two hundred two enty-five thousand understand overall performance as 360 cornering horsepower and ninety foot pounds three to four I'm not wrong I only changed everything when I'm supposed to do all the maintenance that's supposed to be done on these vehicles.
Behind a 5.0 I've always had an EcoBoost which is a 2012 Lincoln but this is the new truck I added to my family in 2016 to limit now this one has the EcoBoost. I'll see how it works. I recently got this. really saying too much right now but i know ecoboost is reliable ever got a hundred and seventy thousand miles ecoboost extremely good explorer truck very very reliable like i said i cant really say anything bad mechanically or anything but if only it was better inside outside quality of products im going to keep racking up the miles or hopefully i can do another video when i get another hundred thousand miles well i got close to me both trucks have lasted and i have held up the test of time.
I like the red coyote better just because I'm a touring fanatic, yes, but up here on the elevation the EcoBoost is a much more powerful engine, so I'd probably pick the EcoBoost on terms alone. of pure power now it's interesting to see the perspectives of these two owners keep in mind this may not represent the entire crowd of five liter eco cabs because they are used differently at their different ages but it's interesting to see the perspectives of two actual owners yes but let's make it a little more scientific Tommy because we want to hear from you how long your truck has lasted and how well it has lasted so Andre was kind enough to put together a series of questions that we would love for you to answer in videos that we ships that way we can do an apples to apples brand comparison so Andre takes it hey guys yeah we want to know about your high mileage truck but we want to structure it in a very specific way.
That's why I'm asking for the top 10 things about your high mileage truck, so we want to not only see your truck, but also be able to structure the data so that when we put it out, we can tell people about every major component of your truck and how it has performed over time so first critical component probably the most expensive component in your truck or any vehicle is your engine so number 10 on the list i would like to hear some stories if your truck does has left you stranded due to engine failure, I'm not talking about that. a dead battery because that happens to most of us and let us know what the story was and also let us know if there was the cost involved to get your truck back on the road and of course if you have never been left stranded let us know we know also number nine and the list have had to replace the injectors on your engine or do a special cleaning on your truck fuel system Had a heavy duty 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 Had to replace my injectors on that black engineer diesel and it was very expensiveso please also let us know what the cost was related to this fuel system problem or if you had no problem let us know very specifically number eight on the list is if you had to replace your timing belt or a timing chain on your engine if you haven't had to you may have a gear driven timing system on your diesel or something but please let us know about this because this can be expensive and can be difficult to do and let us know your experience especially For those trucks with a lot of miles over a hundred and fifty thousand miles.
Now, let's literally shift gears to the next component, which is a transmission. Transmissions are getting a bit more complicated. It's getting more and more expensive, but what if something goes wrong? So number seven on the list we want to know specifically one item related to your stream. Has your transmission left you stranded? Tell us a story about it and the associated cost. With getting a truck back on the road and number six on our list is also transmission related he wants to know exactly how the transmission has performed over the life of his truck since he owned it when you bought it, such You did it once because the truck was moving fast, but have you noticed degradation and performance of your transmission?
Okay now let's move on to another component and I'm talking about rust now so number five on our list has to deal with your truck's chassis body or bed and any issues with rust or deterioration please let us know exactly where you live , how you drive your truck. up north they are using a lot of salt on the roads during the winter you are in the south and maybe there is a lot of moisture in the air w
hatever the case let us know how your truck has lasted so let us know that and exactly what you have to replace and maybe how much does it cost to replace certain body components or deal with the rust issues or do you use wax or something on your frame to prevent further rust? incident or accident with your truck, hopefully not, but if you've had a bent fender or some sort of minor issue, minor damage to your truck, please let us know first how well the truck did. protects it well enough that's number four on our list but also number three on our list let us know what it took to fix it for example if you have a
fordwith an aluminum bed, body and frame do you what it took to fix it if you have another vehicle, maybe it has a composite box or something else, maybe it was your headlights or your taillights, if any of those items were damaged, please let us know how easy or difficult it was to replace or repair them and how much is number two reviewer have two with your truck interior and electronics once again trucks are getting more complicated they have more features so please let us know exactly how they have held up and performed over a period of time and I'm talking about the wear and tear on your seat is your - maybe your stereo system let us know how your infotainment system that center screen has performed over time and number ro one on the list has to do with recalls what we want to know in this article is if your truck had a rush recall because you had to take it to the dealer specifically to have a safety item taken care of.
We're not necessarily interested in smaller recalls on software updates that are routinely done during your regular maintenance, say when you went to get oil. change and a minor recall was made. We're more interested here in the major recalls that you have to specifically take your time and get your truck off the road and take it to the dealership to actually get that job done and finally let us know something else we've been missing about your truck. , maybe an adventure story that was really cool or maybe it went somewhere and had a major problem that you have to deal with, so please let us know anything else we may have missed something that has to do with the reliability and durability of your truck, either you are very happy or very angry about it and guys once again thank you and I look forward to seeing your submissions and posting this data on the website.
