    I've talked to a few guys who have V10s and they said that the bottom end went out. Bad cranks I guess.

    I had a 1999 V10 Automatic. I sold it to a buddy and he has about 173,000 miles on it. Talked to him on monday and he said that it still pulled like it did when he got it. No problems! I will ask about the noise? I have had three since that truck, plowed & pulled them all, never had any motor trouble. How many miles on yours??
