411,000 Miles And Still Going

I bought a 2001 F150 4.2 V6 XL in Nov of 2000. This truck has been my primary vehicle. I have put over 411,000 miles on this truck. The engine has never been touched. I had a partial clutch put in at 165,000 and they told me I might get another 30,000 before I would have to have the entire clutch replace. Well, that was 246,000 miles ago and haven’t touched it since. Now I will admit over the last couple years I’ve had to replace the normal things. I just replace the serpentine belt at 390,000. It didn’t brake I just thought I’d better replace. Still has original water pump as well. Started showing a little rust over the last few years as well. I would love to have a new Ford but my situation won’t allow that at this time. It’s not running too great right now and it showed 8 codes on it when i checked it at a local auto parts store, but all in all I could not have asked for a better truck. This truck lives up to ‘The best never rest’. Thank you Ford!

David Lich Very impressive, great driving skills. What is your service intervals and type of oil? Any recommendations on warm up time and fuel additives? Keep up the good work and keep on trucking, I own a 04 F-150 with a 5.4 V-8 and a 2012 Super Duty with a 6.7 Power Stroke and also try my best to keep them well driven and maintained. They are both show trucks and everyday drivers.
