fix transmission on 93 ford e150 van w/ 158,000 miles, or get rid of it?


Asked by Sep 23, 2013 at 05:23 PM about the 1993 Ford E-150

Question type: General

Trying to decide whether it's worth it to fix a 93 conversion van that was given to us or are the miles too high to make it worthwhile for our own use? The air conditioner is also not working, not sure if there's more but that's what we know of. Thanks!

If the body is in good shape and you like the rig then fix it, the mileage is not that bad, I had a Ford van that went over 250,000 before I had to do any major work and that was the tranny.

Whoa, you're kidding! Ok, thanks, that really helps!


We were given a 1990 Ford van 3 years ago and it's still running strong. Body is falling off but "It's a Ford":>) Odometer just goes to 99,999.99 so aside from the fact that it was from the original owners we don't know if its 160k or 260k. Going to drive it till I have to park it on the road somewhere, call our local auto junkyard, and sell it for $100:>)
