Ford Falcon 1988 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ute you can use

    ALL are suitable for work, but it could come down to the type of work you do. None will work as hard as a Japanese one-tonner. If you don't need to carry heavy loads, the Falcon may well do the job. The XH will carry more than the XD and XF in its one-tonne guise, so that may be worth a look. XD and XF Falcons are getting long in the tooth and will be well past their use-by date. In utes you need to look for damage to the body. The condition of the inner tray is a giveaway to its previous life. Also, check early Falcon utes for rust.

  • Extract the digits

    IT'S not common. You should take it to an instrument repairer. Generally, it won't be a problem with annual checks, provided the speedo is working so you know how fast you're going.

  • Cool change?

    THE XF Falcon ute has an alloy-headed engine, so it should run a coolant rather than water. But I'd be reluctant to recommend you change now. After 380,000km, it seems to be going OK. I wouldn't change anything.
