How's the 4.8 against the 4.4? I can't stand the look of the rear of an E53. The black plastic piece where the exhaust pipes stick out is so out of place and down right ugly.

An 02 model E39 A/C compressor will not kick in if the aux fan is dead.

I would check the aux fan connector for corrosion, before buying another aux fan.
Good luck.

I have a bad feeling if your mechanic was telling you the true reading of the old oil pump.
Even if the oil sender is coated with oil doesn't mean it was bad.

Good point. I didn't like that neither. However, having it over a month now and I think it needed it in the F150, since it doesn't have an aux fan. And, Painless controller does utilize PWM to ramp...

Look for a used Snap On. Mine is rated at 640 FT/LBS or some crazy number like that. It makes swapping tires like a piece of cake.

It's a little pricey but worth it.
