Is this a problem with all 4.0's? A friend of mine recently "blew the head gasket" on his ranger. I have yet to look at it though.

ask about the torque when you buy the gasket
in fact slip around back and ask another mechanic

Just read a thread on an xploder site and it says 6ftlb, then 11ftlb, then 16ftlb. Where do you put the RTV?

I put a coat right around the coolant passages and that was it.

ok! Im bringing this critter to work with me tomorrow and will tear into it then. May have to get the wife to come pick me up if this takes too long. Im not spending ALL my free time on this truck. I already have a LIST on this thing.

Plugs and wires, belt, water pump, thermostat, oil change, check out for state inspection, check a brake she says is having issues, let her know what else I find wrong....seems like the shocks and struts are GONE!

you da man CAT

now looking back on Bikers words, even though he didn't say it out right , I would now interpret it as " aint no Fee'n way I'm messing with that truck, I'm a heavy equipment mechanic" well so much for hind sight

if i were there I'de be in there with ya
just to hand you another beer or wrench
but I have to agree with your initial thoughts
regardless what it takes I'm gonna help out the little lady
I gotta LOVE ya for it
that's the way as I can see that you & a lot of us on this site grew up
we have a unending love of mechanical things and also helping others out
I'm sure I'm not alone in reading this that if we we'e closer we would be there with you helping any we can
it would'nt matter if we came up on a FORD, CHEVY, DODGE or HARLEY

We all share one thing in common a Brotherhood of Engines & the Open Road and the Willing Attitude to Help One Another - FTC FOREVER !!

Well I'm sure with the situation as it is, the hard work on your part will be greatly appreciated. If i were closer, I'd come out and lend a hand.

Thanks yall! I just have to look at it as she has a 2007 F150 FX4 with 17k miles on it that she can drive until this one is fixed. I have a family that I have to spend time with on my days off. Her not getting this truck fixed in one day WONT kill her. Im sure she understands and is willing to drive a newer truck as long as she gets this one fixed. I dont plan on letting it sit for weeks b4 doing it all but I do have priorities too!

If nothing else is wrong with this thing.....she is already looking at $300 in parts alone. That isnt bad to say it has 128k on it and this is all being done as free labor! No cash trading hands but I would like to get that car and get it running. KBB lists its value as $4k. I should be able to sell it for around $3k-3500
