#1276 of 2180 For Mvhammy-re 1994 Ford F150 Transmission slipping
Jul 02, 2005 (12:16 pm)
Sounds like the same problem. Yesterday mine started acting up in town. This a.m. I took it on the hiwaay plus in town. The same problem of shifting down at high or low speed, but another problem developed suddenly. At times doesn't want to upshift from lst and hard when it does. I've been checking on www.Alldata.com and found 2 TSB's you can check if you have access to them. I can't find them for free. #atratb305, Jan. "95-shifts to neutral, and #942417, Nov. '94-downshifts too often no 4th gear. I'm at a loss and had a fishing trip scheduled Monday. My transmission was serviced at 36K and 49K miles, when the problem surfaced. Next week I think I'll get it flushed and serviced and see what happens before I try a shop again. I'm retired and not a mechanic. I do small jobs but not one like this. After reading messages in this forum and others I think Ford better wake up! Thanks, HAVEHADIT

I just bought this truck and have 100+ miles on it and I don't feel that the truck is performing the way it should. I am not demanding to go fast but it seams that the truck is SLOW. Is this normal or the 3 valve engine is a scam? Is there a fix?
Anything on this topic will be greatly appreciated

I have a f250 super duty 04 truck, she was idling rough so I changed the fuel and water filters she started but was idling rough and gradually stopped, I checked the fuel filter on top of the engine and there is no fuel going to the filter when I turned the key I can't hear the fuel pump running the only thing I hear is a chatter from the injector. Did anybody have this problem?

I am also an owner of a 2005 Ford F150 with less than 6000 miles on it, hardly broken in. It has died out on me three times while driving on the road and will not start right away. I have brought it in to the dealer three times with no avail. They cannot find any thing failing and no records on the on board computer. It is an nintermittent problem and they claim if they cannot duplicate the problem they cannot fix it. I was told to keep driving it and eventually the check engine light will indicate problem. They also claim they do not want to swapp out parts because it might cause other problems. My luck it will come on after the waranty expires. I was thinking about getting a lemon lawyer considering I am paying 40,000 dollars for something that I cannot rely on. Anybody out there having any similar issues?

I have the same slipping with my 94 f150 V8.
The randomness is the most confusing part.
I put "Lucas Transmission Fix" in, and it seemed to stop the slipping about 95% for 2 weeks. Then I took a 100 mile trip and it got really bad, slipping into "neutral" on the highway. I pulled off, shut her down, then drove home and it was fine again on the way home. Almost like it gets a good transmission "sync" sometimes, and other times it won't grab for nothing.?
I'm going to try more Lucas Fix, before I take it to a transmission shop. If the transmission fix is going to cost me more than $1,000 - I might just have to part this sucker out on Ebay!
Thanks for any info, Runjim.

#1282 of 2180 v10 f350 will not start
Jul 04, 2005 (6:15 am)
first off hello to every one. i have been reading and think this is a great site. i have a 2000 f-350 sd with 81000 miles. the other day my brother in law made a delivery in it and when he slowed down to turn into my driveway it died. i ahve not been able to get it started. the scanner showed no codes. i have since changed the crank position sensor, the cam position sensor, the fuel filter, and the spark plugs.(it is a v10 btw) it tries to start but does not.it does backfire through the air intake. the plugs were wet with fuel as well as inside the plenum. i do not have a fuel pressure gauge for injection system and up to now have been very impressed with no problems at all. has any one had a similar problem? i have just about given up. thanks ahead of time for any help.

Where I used to work we had a few F350 SWR CC trucks years 2000-2002. I think all of them had the fuel pump go out before they hit 40K miles. Never threw a code or anything they just wouldnt start. These trucks were driven in harsh conditions (steel mill) for short times and ran pretty close to empty all the time so that could contribute to the fuel pump problem. I would say start there

thanks for the info. this makes the most sense in this case. i did finally get a pressure tester and it tests ok. but i still think it is bad. i too run it on empty a lot. i will let you know if this fixes it.

I bought a new 04 ford F-150 4x4 lariat it has ~20,000 miles on it....in the past 2 weeks I have experienced a strange noise almost like something is dragging or something. It has happened twice now. It only happens at low speeds and then truck will shift and it stops. I have not contacted the dealer because I was hoping someone would be able to give me a little heads up on what it is before the dealer gives me one of those "well we cant reproduce it....blah blah". Thanks in advance...RC
