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

I got a message on one of the forums (I've entered 3 or 4 now). The person suspects that the cause is the MLSP switch. It's mounted on the transmission. It is connected by cable to the shift lever on the steering column. It tells the transmission whether you want neutral, 1st, 2nd, 3rd or overdrive by turning on and of the shifting solenoids inside the transmission. I'm going to buy one and give it a try. I already check for the correct cable adjustment and it was right on.

I also lost my Tranny at 51k and now I think the rear end is going. Ther dealer that fixed my transmission said they were having problems with the rear end and in fact that was the first place he check when the transmission went. And no I did not get any help from Ford on the transmission which sucked... Time to go back to chevy!!

Since you've changed out just about everything else...have you looked at the IAC? Idle air control solenoid behind the throttle body plenum. Did your B.I.L have any problems with iding rough before it finally died? Initial symptoms of a bad IAC, you need to step on the gas to keep the engine running or it stalls out.
Test: Try to start the truck with the throttle depressed about 1/4 way. If it starts, or at least tries to start better than before, then it's probably the IAC.
You can also get a feel for your fuel pressure without a fuel pressure gauge - there's a shrader valve on the fuel rail. If crank the engine the fuel pump should come on, and you should get a healthy squirt outta the valve when you press it. (Be careful - wear safety goggles) If not, then check fuel pump relay, or fuel pump.

I have an 87 f250 6 cyl work truck and I think the CC may be bad. The truck has no power what so ever and stalls. How is the best way to check to make sure it is the CC and not something else. I have already changed the O2 sensor. Thanks
