the 5.4 is a very reliable motor, from what I have read here on the forum. the biggest issue I have read about is spark plug blow out, out of the head. I cant recall if there are specific cylinders that this happens to, but just look for any evidence of it happening before. I'm sure others will chime in also to help you out

With that low miles it'll probably be in the tens of thousands of $. and like ^^ he said look for any evidence of loose plugs, make sure 4 wheel drive works.

2003 models are less likely to have the spark plug blowout problem as those heads have more threads for the plugs.
