A little help here?
Hey Guys, I'm Andy from OKC. I just bought a 92 F-150 Ext cab, just to have a beater to get me from A to B.
The truck has the 302 in it, and it has a few problems I was wondering if I could get some input on.
The truck burns a little oil, and when I say a little I mean more like a lot. When I first start the truck up, it gives a pretty good puff of oil smoke. It occasionally smokes a bit on hard accelerations too. The oil guage stays at the lower end of Normal, but does go up a bit on the highway. Im wondering if its just a valve job that needs to be done, or if it could be something else. And if it is just a valve job, what all does that take, or how much would a shop charge for it?
It also stalls once right after its started when its sat for a while. I can restart it, and the idle will climb up to about 2500, then it calms back down. Any ideas on this one???
I also have what sounds to be like a bubbling noise coming from under the pass. side of the dash. I think this might just be the heater lines that need to be bled, or could it be something else?
Thanks a lot in advance for the help!
