I’m selling this F-150 as a complete, operating parts vehicle.
There are numerous issues with this F-150 which make it unroadworthy and unsafe:
1.) Left Front Suspension: ~ at some point the in the vehicle’s history the front left suspension was damaged. My local mechanic estimated $1200.00 to replace the suspension. As a consequence, the vehicle pulls hard to the left whenever you drive. The front end cannot be aligned and I do not consider the vehicle safe at highway speeds. If you panic stop you may lose control of this vehicle. Even though the tires are newish, the front left tire is wearing irregularly so the tire makes noise when you drive.
2.) Engine: ~ the oil was not replaced frequently enough so the piston rings are worn. There is significant blow by (see photo). As a consequence, the mileage is about 17 mpg (should be about 20 mpg) and the exhaust gases have bypassed the rings and PVC valve so the intake is wet.
3.) The check engine light does not go on when energizing system and before starting car like it’s supposed to (see photo), but I found the following 4 OBD Trouble Codes:
- P0171: System Too Lean (Bank 1)
- P0174: System Too Lean (Bank 2)
- P0455: EVAP Emission Control System Leak (Large)
- P0457: EVAP Emission Control System Leak Cap Loose/Off
After I bought this vehicle I had a new clutch installed. I had a Virginia State Safety and Emissions inspection done in November 2018. This is a Florida car so overall the body panels are in good condition for a car of its age. Again, the value of this pickup is probably in that it is a complete, operating parts car with good body panels, a transmission in decent condition, complete interior, working AC/Heat, and newer tires.
I have described this vehicle as best as I can, it is sold strictly “As Is”. Therefore, I’m posting this vehicle with $1.00 opening bid, no reserve, 10 day auction, high bidder wins.
If you have any questions I will do my best to answer them. If you have a low bidding history (less than 5 positive feedback) I reserve the right to cancel your bid. This vehicle will be sold with a full tank of gas, an owner’s manual, and a RPM gauge – New In Box. Please review my payment terms. Due to its condition I recommend that you not drive it any distance, but tow it.
