Ford v10

Just wondering how dependable the ford v10's are. I understand that fuel mileage is not the best but if your towing or hauling heavy loads, it should get better than a 5.4 triton. Thanks

Re: Ford v10

My bol has one in a early 2000's pick up. Far as I know he has not had any engine trouble, but Body is getting bad on the truck.
Most people I know that have owned or driven them, all say the mileage is not good, but that is to be expected with a V10. Most also say the power is not what they expected, and they do not compare to the Diesel, although I am sure their are after market Tuners, exhaust, etc....which would make them run much better.
My buddy had one in a motor home, it got better mileage and had way more torque when pulling the hills then the previous Motor home with the V8 Ford engine. I honestly don't remember the size of the engine in his previous MH, but as I recall it was a BB Ford???

Re: Ford v10

had a V10 in a 1999 F-250 crew cab. I pulled a 28 ft camper with it. camper was around 7000lbs loaded. got between 10 and 11 mpg empty and around 9 or so towing. had plenty of power on hills.

Re: Ford v10

Did the V10 have any of the problems the 5.4 V8 had? I know the 5.4 had coil and/or plug problems of some sort. I know a guy that had an F150 with the 5.4 and he had trouble in those areas.

Re: Ford v10

460 was phased out in 1997.MH was 97 or older

Re: Ford v10

A friend of mine has a F-250 harley davidson edition with a V-10 in it. It has a ton of power but only gets 10 mpg whether it's loaded down or empty. The manifolds warped from the heat and they started leaking around the gasket. The dealer said it was a common problem on those engines. The bolts actually snapped off in the block and had to be drilled and tapped.

Re: Ford v10

Ask my buddy last night what the engine was in the MH prior to the one with the V10........It was a 460. Didn't ask what year it was.
He re confirmed what I had said, better fuel mileage and more power pulling hills with the V10. Keep in mind that was in a class A motorhome.
I had a 27 ft 5th wheel that I towed with my Duramax, and I could run all over him in the hills. Not sure what the weight difference would have been between the 2 set ups??
