Jumped in my truck a couple of days ago, and I think the motor seized. Turned over a couple of times, then a "bang" and now it won't turn over at all. I think the starter is getting plenty of juice as the positive battery terminal gets hot (to the point of smelling) if I try to turn it over a few times. I have been having a problem with low oil pressure at warm idle for the last few weeks. I wasn't too concerned as web research showed that typically wasn't a problem in older vehicles as long as it was only at a warm idle. Pressure came right back up with a very small increase in RPM (taking the truck out of gear would bring it back up to normal). The truck is a '98 F150 with the 4.2 V6 motor. Has about 120K miles on it. I got it at 100K and now think that it probably wasn't maintained very well before I got it. However, other than the motor, it's in pretty good mechanical shape and no rust. Not sure what to do. Checked the price on a couple of places to install a new or rebuilt motor and it's between $3500 and $5000. I really don't need or like that big of a truck and am thinking of just putting that money into a newer Ranger. Complicating the problem is the fact that this is my vehicle used for work, so I'm having to borrow a vehicle until I can get this worked out, so I need to do something rather quickly. My questions are: 1. Does my assessment of the problem sound accurate? Are there other things I should do to confirm it? 2. Are there any cheaper alternatives to replacing the motor (I'm kind of mechanically inclined, but not set up to do a full engine swap myself)? 3. What kind of price could I expect to get on the truck to sell it "as is" and what would be the best way to approach it? Any other suggestions are welcome.
