View Full Version : Need 5.4 Triton for tow vehicle
02-23-2009, 08:41 PM
I know this is not a Buick item. We lost the motor in our 1999 Ford Expedition.
I need a 5.4 liter for the above vehicle. Prefer low mileage. This is the only one I have that hold the whole family.
Any leads appreciated.
I am located in Ringgold,GA.
Once again sorry for the off topic post, but I really could use help.

Did yours suffer the same fate as many of the others with warped heads and blown gaskets? I've been nursing our 98 for the last couple years...I hope it lasts another couple!

I found out the hard way this had a problem. I only had it for about 6 months. It did run good and we put over 10,000 miles on it.The best option so far appears to be a new Ford 5.4, unfortunately (100,000 mile warranty). It appears the more checking I am doing the more this appears to be a known problem. It is in great shape, it is just really sad Ford did not step up and make his problem right early on. The starange thing is I had a 2000 F150 with the same motor (?), that until an accident at 165,000 miles never burned or lost any oil. These days especially in the Chattanooga area, import cars rule. I lived in Michigan, so an import is out of the question. This one will live again, the other concern now is how many other years of this engine might have the same issue, making installing another used one out of the question.
Good luck with yours,
