The 4.7 liter engines have been a good motor, the biggest problem we have seen is water pump issues, if the issues were fixed before any overheating happened the engines will last longer.

The transmissions we have seen a few issues with solenoid packs going out, most transmission issue have been corrected with reprogramming the computer.

A lot will depend on the service records of the previous owner, the best products will fail without proper servicing.

It is my goal to give you 5 star service, so please give me a 5 star rating before leaving the site today.
