Did this video help you?

hondaus90: What is the name of that song at 3:15?

IDIDieselJohn: Yessir!

Smith2627: Y101 eh? Your from Ottawa ;)

IDIDieselJohn: I wasn't very dirty to begin with, and I use to work as a car detailler, I can polish the biggest turd you can find me.

Nick Dennis: how did you get the interior so clean?? or was it like then when you got it?

Jack Hitchcock: Although on the XLT models it will chime instead of buzz.

brendonk01: I like it other than the automatic transmission lol

fordfurious1998: @FordMan055 i can answer that my dad use to have the same truck its to indicate the keys have been turned to acc or if the doors open it will make that sound two (if the keys are in the ignition

IDIDieselJohn: Fasten Seat Belt warning, or if you leave your key in the ignition, and open the door, it will also buzz to let you know you forgot your keys.

IDIDieselJohn: About 2mpg drop. 

Joshua Brown: @IDIDieselJohn How much do you mean by slightly? And I understand that the 302 isn't as good, that's why I was going to do a swap only after this one blows. But still, that'll be like another 400,000 Lol

IDIDieselJohn: I recently re-calculated mpg, driving 55 on the highway, grandma take offs, etc. gave me 14.1mpg. 90% highway driving.

IDIDieselJohn: The E10 will slightly lower your mpg. Here in Canada, it's all been E10 for years now. Makes absolutely no difference in engine performance! It actually cleans out the system, tank and everything. So if some time later it start loosing power and etc., change your fuel filter, the E10 cleans out the tank and all the crap ends up plugging the filter, if the tank was dirty enough. Also E10 prevents fuel from freezing no matter the temps* The 302 is not a very good engine compared to the 300.....

Joshua Brown: @IDIDieselJohn The EPA rated it at 14 City and 17 Highway. My truck is same year, motor, only it's an XLT Lariat and a 5 speed. I mostly drive highway and I normally get 20 if not a little more. My gas gauge doesn't work and I only have my front 19 gallon tank, and I only have to fill when the Trip meeter gets to about 250-280, and I only end up putting about 17 or 18 gallons in.

Joshua Brown: Hey John. I got a question for ya again about my truck, 1989 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 300 I6 EFI motor with the 5 speed manual. When I bought the truck the guy before me said he only used Unleaded. Well, for me that means that gas is $3.54 per gallon!! Have you ever tried to use the 10% Ethinol Fuel? If so did it change MPG's or how the engine ran or anything? Also, when this motor dies I plan on switching for the 302. Know how hard that might be? Thanks!

Joshua Brown: @ClayPigeonKiller Lol, I have the XLT Lariat. Not very fancy, but way ahead of it's time for a 1989

Kenneth Coventry: @ClayPigeonKiller I'm aware that the Customs were the lowest end trucks, but I honestly loved it better than my grandfather's XLT. I'm a Ford guy, so I know the trim level by heart, but I guess my comment did kind of sound like I didn't know what I was talking about.

IDIDieselJohn: There excellent trucks and these straight 6's are bullet proof engines, but way to freaken hard on gas!

IDIDieselJohn: There is a couple that pop up for sell in my area with that combo or similar engine trans. combo, but most 4x4 trucks get beat to hell....so it makes it harder finding one of this age that's in half decent shape.

Kenneth Coventry: This really made me miss my 1989 F-150. I had a nice blue one. It was also a Custom (which I thought were better than the top trims of that time). I'm trying to find one like it, but it seems impossible to find a V8 that's stick shift and 4x4.

hondaus90: What is the name of that song at 3:15?
IElRedI: It's being used in my house right now by the builders. freaking hell does it stink.
Charles Show: Major loss of EMS emergency drugs all over the USA. 3 months now, just got D-50 for the first time in a back order. We got 3. after 3 months. 
Jack Baisley: Just got done replacing a broken clamp that holds the shifter tube, it fixed the slop of the shifter but the key will move at all nor the shifter both are locked up. I had trouble aligning the shifter tube until I reached back and shifted it by hand. What do you think I did wrong?
I was not able to put it in park so when I started working on it I had it in neutral, then putting it back together I shifted by hand in order to make the shifter tube to sit in the right the place.
Thanks,
-Jack

Mely Almonacid: Donde estudiaste en la media Ale?
D Treacy: You need to work on your preparation and stage presence, be prepared and you'll do amazing, should have tested the durability to impact.
Balithazzarr: I know how loud these filters can get. Sometimes it takes some lifting and pulling and slipping and sticking. I've slipped some cardboard underneath the pipe up top to quiet it. I have really hot water here in the winter so that helps clean the unit. I should really make a video about dealing with the sound. But if you lift the pipe up and start pulling it out but not all the way out the noise will stop most times. Stick cardboard from a cigarette box or something to keep it supported.
Also I find a steam machine is good for cleaning just about everything. Canister steam machine.
This filter looks good I got the aqueon filter for the 10 gal and the 20-30 gal.
I reuse the filters so much. But I now I see I need to find a way to add carbon. Big bag of activated charcoal poured into nylon leggings I'm thinking. Fish is my passion but I'm not an expert just a dreamer.
