No Events Leading Up To Failure;sudden Failure Of Spare Tire Retaining Cable On Personal Truck. Cable Snapped Suddenly And Without Warning Causing Spare Tire To Fall From Its Stowed Position Beneath The Truck. This Caused The Truck To Become Airborne Briefly As The Spare Tire Caught The Rear Bumper And Lifted It. Had The Spare Tire Not Been Additionally Secured By An Anti-theft Cable The Tire Would Definitely Have Been Sent Into Other Traffic Behind Me Or In The Oncoming Lane. New Tire Was Purchased By Me But No Other Corrective Action;dealer And Manufacturer Refused. *jb

My 1998 ford F150 As Soon As It Got To 100,000 Miles The Oil Pump Goes Out And It Starts To Loose Coolant But Not Leaking It Any Where. As I Have Found Out These Engines Between 80,000 And 100,000 Do This. Many Forums Read The Same Problem For Every 4.2l Does This. I Believe ford Should Do A Recall On These Engines. Please Let Me Know What To Do. *jb
