what can this truck pull?
I am trying to find out what this truck can pull on a trailer. It has a 6 cylinder gas engine and gets hot with a heavier load. We are not sure if it is because of the load or if something under the hood is not working properly.
its a 16yr old ford be happy it starts. my buddy and i use his chevy 1500 to haul car trailers all summer long. we have had as much as 3 tons on his trailer, it was a full size van,back when scrap was high we got 800 for the van we payed 100 and the truck drove like there was nothing even there buy a chevy btw his truck is 21 yrs old with over 200,000 miles on it
you probably have something wrong under the hood because that motor can be luged like a diesel. i have a 86 300 inline six and it will pull my 16ft cattle trailer full of cows with no problems
powerloss isnt anything just change the oil and check the sending unit for the fan cause if that little puppy is heating up like that theres gotta be somthing wrong with the cooling system and so what if its a 16 year old truck all the old ones are the best fords chevy and dodges never die young i have a 69 ford f250 and my grandpa used to have a 56 ford f100 that ran when he sent the thing to the junk yard
Hey John, This site is for real men with real trucks, not girls who drive chevy's. Lol You don't even have a truck, and if your buddy was a real buddy, he would just give you a hug and apologize for being a bad influence on you.
try takin t-stat out and see if it makes a difference
