There's not any big problems that I'm aware of other than its under powered. The 04 5.4 3v on the other hand is very problematic. Just keep up on the maitnance and it should last a long time for you.

Never heard that. The 4.6 is the most proven of all the Modulars... There's not much to go wrong on them.

I havent heard any problems with the 4.6 in these trucks.. If there was big problems with them than the mustang would not be a best seller (condsidering its the same motor)..

4.2 V6's are a good one too. I have not had any issues with it. I'll agree it is "less powerful" then those gas sucking, cam phase noise creating, early addition spark plug breaking 5.4 V8's...

But it does get me back and forth in style and comfort!
