I do not have a copy of the vehicle report card for this problem but I will ask Ford what they did to fix the problem.My problem was I would release the the parking brake pedal and some how down the road it would engage and the truck would start to shake all over the road like it had a loose wheel or bent rim.It took just over a week for them to order the parts.
#1203 of 2180 Charging system
Jun 06, 2005 (5:16 am)
I have an 86 F-250 4x4. Battery died, went to get new battery and was told the alternator was bad,so I bought a new 60AMP alt. Had batt. re checked and was tol the new alt was only putting out 14 AMP and only 2.3 volts. Could this be a wireing issue, bad alt or is there some other component that may be bad? Anyone???
#1204 of 2180 98 F-150 exhaust problem
Jun 06, 2005 (4:33 pm)
I just bought a 4.6 L 4x4 F150 and it makes an annoying ticking noise during acceleration like there is a leak in the exhaust manifold. THe noise is definitely coming from the engine compartment but the motor runs like a top. Is this a common thing with the exhaust system, if so is there any way to fix the problem without buying as new system?

stop4it: re: lemon law. hopefully all the 2005 F-150 will comment on this site with any cab vibration, drive-train slack and knocking and gas mileage problems they are having that carried over from the 2004 to 2005 F-150. It appears this platform
has problems in 2005 that never were addressed by Ford during 2004 model year.
All the people who comment will help others build their case with Ford that these problems exist on a larger than one customer scale.
#1207 of 2180 Front End Problems???
Jun 07, 2005 (8:10 pm)
New here, had a question about a 1999 F-250, V10 4x4. Started having a problem when I made a left hand turn. I'd make the turn and I'd straighten it out and just as I got the wheel straight, it would jerk to the right, then jerk back to the left. It'd do it a couple of times then go away. It didn't happen every time that I made a left hand turn, but then it started happening when I was turning for a curve in the road instead of just a full 90 degree turn.
Took it to the garage, had a center link replaced, upper and lower ball joints on passenger side also replaced, then had an alignment done. It's still drifts to the right. I've already put out about $500 for this and seen two different mechanics. The first one had no idea what the problem was. The second one said the center link portion of the pitman arm needed to be replaced. It was, problem's still there.
Looks like there's grease coming out of the elbows. Normal or not? Could that have anything to do with the original problem? Or could it be something in the steering box? The second mechanic who replaced all those parts says that the center link was the problem and it should be fixed now. I don't really feel like being charged another $100 just to have him look it over and say he doesn't know what's wrong. I'm sort of nervous about taking my kids in the truck because it has jerked hard enough that it even makes me nervous as to what could happen.
Any suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a '93 F150 5.0L that doesn't seem to have much power. It is very sluggish up hills and on the hiway. Sometimes it doesn't want to go over 50 mph. When under load, like up hills it makes a ticking noise. Just bought the truck. I have replaced the fuel filter, air cleaner, pcv. Next I will look at plugs I guess. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I now have an 04 F-150 and have not experienced the vibration/shhutter problem that you have. I did buy a new 97 Ranger and experienced the same problem. After 14 visits to the dealer, new tires several new bearings and several new drive shafts and 13,000 miles later I took the keys into the service manager laid them on his desk and told him I no longer wanted this truck. Ford gave me the MSRP of the 97 toward a brand spanking new 98. I was very satisfied with the deal, that is why I still drive a ford this is my 2nd F-150 since then.
#1210 of 2180 antifreeze leaking
Jun 09, 2005 (9:27 am)
I have a 1996 Ford F-250 7.2 powerstroke diesel. I have antifreeze coming from the rear of the engine. I suspect a freeze plug. Where is it located? Do you have any other ideas or suggestions. Do you have any other information that I might need in repairing it.
