Consumer Review Video - 2007 Ford F-150 XL 4.2L V6 Standard Cab Pickup (2 Door)

Car Displayed: 2007 Ford F-150 XL 4.2L V6 Standard Cab Pickup (2 Door)

The 2007 Ford F-150 XL is an easy truck to maintain. No tools are needed to access its fuse box, which comes with a fuse puller to allow for hassle-free electrical troubleshooting. The entire engine coolant systme has very open access, allowing you to reliably monitor it whenever necessary. Despite its unusual shape, changing the engine air filter isn’t a problem as no tools are needed to disengage its housing and the filter removes with ease.

However, the 2007 Ford F-150 XL has its downsides. The clutch fluid reservoir doesn’t come provided with level markers or a dipstick, which won’t allow you to reliably monitor its fluid levels. The power steering fluid may also be difficult to monitor on account of its deep-seated location in the engine bay. The spare tire needs to be lowered from underneath the vehicle, which may be problematic should it get rusted to the undercarriage.
