yup, just the nature of the beast, when it goes it goes. Could go 200K or 30K.

Hey torkum, are you talking about me, the more I sit! Te more I sit! Wouldn't say its common for a pump to go out, but maybe torkum has a point and the motor just plain stuck. Are we sure the inertia switch didn't get bumped and needs to be reset? My 02 has been so reliable that I don't even want to think about a replacement.

I'm an electrician by trade. Wiring won't go bad after just 5 years. Heck - some of these vehicles sit on the dealer's lot for a year after they are built!
I think i just got a lemon part.
My last f150 ran 18 years with only 100K on the clock and never had a problem. And it ran fine when i sold it!

Its too bad that you have your mind made up, was wondering about the truck, where has it lived the past 5 years? Might be interested in buying the lemon. Are you interested?

I'm a loyal F150 man, as you can see from my last vehicle. I'll give this one another chance, but if it misbehaves again (at this cost), out the door it goes, and i'll change brands.
