Customer Question
My 1994 Ford F-150...

My 1994 Ford F-150 XLT (5.0 Ltr Eng) The automatic transmission needs a tune-up. Should I do it myself. I'm a OK mechnic?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?

I have 170000 miles, and it is the original trans.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I do all the work, I just replaced the A/C to day by myself. Works Great and quite.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The vehicle is in excellent condition. The maintenance has been an obsession with me..
