For bid here is my 1985 F-150 Stepside. The truck had sat for a number of years before I bought it and got it running. I have replaced all the hard brake lines, front hoses, and master cylinder. The 4wd works fine and the transmission shifts pretty well, however the clutch has chatter at times. There is rust on the truck that I had intended to work on but I do not have the time to repair it. There is also body damage and dents at various areas. The one side of the fiberglass bed has a good sized crack. The wooden floor of the bed has some holes in it. The interior is in pretty good condition, but needs some more cleaning and the blower motor does not turn on which I have not looked into. The lights on the truck work but it needs a left headlight. The truck is rough around the edges but could certainly be worse and may make a good restoration or off road project. The photos were taken with the truck running and as you can see the engine does not smoke and it idles fine. I'm sure it could use a tune up and more regular use. I must sell this truck as-is because I do not know everything about it and it has obviously been around a very long time. The title is a good PA title in my name, and the truck should be hauled from here and not driven as it should be looked over thoroughly. Please only bid if you have good feedback and want to own the truck. Thank you for looking.

Unibody Ford Ranger replacement
The poor first quarter earnings of Ford and General Motors are having an effect all the way up the food chain. Both automakers struggled with recalls in the first three months of the year, and, according to The Detroit News, they have responded by increasing the percentage of bonuses tied to vehicle quality for salaried workers, including top executives.

GM announced that 25 percent of bonuses (up from 10 percent) for all salaried workers would be tied to its vehicle quality standards. The automaker revealed in its financial report that it spent $1.3 billion on recall-related repairs in the first quarter, and net income was down 86 percent.
Ford also increased the quality proportion of bonuses for about 26,000 salaried workers all the way up to CEO Alan Mulally from 10 percent to 20 percent. The company announced in its report that the amount paid out in warranty and recall claims was about $400 million higher than expected in the first quarter. Its net income fell 39 percent from the previous year. "The change reflects how critical quality is to our overall business," said spokesperson Todd Nissen speaking to Autoblog.
Typically when we report on the findings of an investigation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it's because the government body has discovered a safety issue and prescribed a recall. In this case, however, NHTSA has closed an investigation into a reported performance deficit without ever getting to the recall stage.
The issue revolves around the Ford F-150 - specifically those equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine - of which some 360,000 were built in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 model years. After receiving an initial 95 complaints, NHTSA opened an investigation last May - almost a year ago - into the reported issue of reduced engine power under hard acceleration. The agency has since received a total of 525 such complaints, and Ford itself reported receiving over 4,000.
Together, NHTSA and Ford determined that the problem resulted from cylinders misfiring, an issue itself stemming from water getting into the charge air cooler (CAC) mated to the turbochargers. In particularly humid or rainy conditions, water was found to get into the CAC, causing some of the cylinders to misfire, which in turn triggered the ECU to disable those cylinders in order to protect the catalytic converter from damage.
