I have a 1994 F150 with 200,000 km on it. Pretty much nothing works on the truck except the engine. the whole cabbin air system is broken heater core air conditioning and the fan all broken wipers don't work. the auto tranny forgot that its an auto and no longer shifts itself (to move you got to put it in first then second etc.) When I got it it was stuck in 4 High had 4 flat tires. Someone left the window open for 3 years while it was parked so the interior needs to be riped out and cleaned. lots of work.

Since I have to get the tranny rebuit should I also consider rebuilding the engine since it's well used?

junk it. It's not worth the work.

I agree 100%. To turn that truck into a fully functional vehicle, you'll be in debt way over the cost of a new truck thats similarly priced.

Junking it isn't an option If I don't use it someone else will. (handmedown truck form father in law) it does drive but you got to shift it your self. and stay out of rain and cold :P

I think i'll just fix the little things (wipers heater core heater fan) then drive it till it stops driving
