    Hi, I don't know a lot about mechanics but I have an 5.0L '89 Eddie Bauer Bronco that's been in the family for 3 generations now and means the world to me. I need to replace my engine because it recently blew after constantly burning/leaking both oil and coolant. I'm looking to replace it with...

    I've got an 86 XLT FSB that originally had a 351 but now has a 302 thanks to the PO. I've had it for almost a year and done a good bit of work to it but recently started having issues with the C6. I had it out a month ago and it seemed to fall out of gear, made some grinding noises, wouldn't...

    So as the title says the engine RPM will jump up and down in 4th gear typically while I'm cruising around 55mph. It'll go from around 1700rpm up to 2200rpm and back down repeatedly usually until I slow down, speed up, or force it to shift into 3rd. Any ideas? I'll try pulling the codes later...

    Bought a 94 Eddie Bauer today, first FSB though I had a BII many years ago. Plan to keep very close to stock and slowly bring her back to what she was in 1994. Starting with a 5.8 with just over 100k miles, body and chassis in decent shape for the northeast, but (there's always a but...) the...

    Hey guys I’m new to the page. I have a 1996 5.8 that the tranny went out on. I bought a donor bronco to swap the trannys with. The donor was a 1995.

    Hey Guys, Does anyone have any recommendations for a shop in Las Vegas that can work on the transmission for my 92 XLT (E40D). I’m not mechanically inclined and I’m a slave to work so I lack the time. Also, if I were to do a swap, is it recommended to get a crate engine? I’ve researched and...
