#1423 of 2180 F-150 Vibration
Aug 19, 2005 (12:29 pm)
I will not go 1 year trying to fix this problem like you have. I have had my 2005 Lariat at the dealership for repair 3 times and a total of 15 days since I picked it up 34 days ago. They have balanced the tires, scoped the engine, changed the drive shaft and installed shims. They were to call Ford engineering today. I told Ford customer service this morning that I wanted a new truck. They told me that I needed to give them 2 to 5 business days to respond to what the next step will be. I am getting really turned off about Ford products and Ford service!

I would talk to maybe the owner of the dealership or someone high up, beacuse you deserve a new motor no question about it. Raise some sort of hell thats all I can say!

The problem is with your ignition coils misfiring, I had the same problem a while back. The bad news is that mine cost $900 to fix. By the way get yourself some english or writing classes, Thanks.

I have a 2005 F150 4 x 2 SuperCrew Lariat with 3400 miles. The transmission shifts hard and clunks "periodically" especially when it has warmed up. It is readily noticeable from a stop. Several times the truck would lurch forward as if it was a mismanaged manual clutch. There is also a noticeable problem, both accelerating and decelerating between 1500 to 2200 rpm. Again a hard clunk when up or down shifting. I know what the service bulletin says but this is not normal. Anyone have ideas or solutions. Of course the dealer cant duplicate.

The air from the blower on my 98 F150 changes from the panel vents to the defrost vent when the vehicle is under acceleration. Can't find any vacuum leaks. Has anyone had this experience and where I might go next to trouble-shoot?

Did you ever get your A/C Problem figured out? I am having the same exact issue with my 04 F-150 4x4
Any info would be appreciated...

I have also had problems with ALL 3 Ford F-150's bought in 2004. My personal truck is a F150 Supercrew 4x4 Lariat of which I do not tow or haul anything with has been in the shop for brakes 7 times. The FORD FACTORY REP JUST SAYS SORRY, WE ARE NOT REPLACING IT!!!
Other problems I have had with this truck are:
1. Rear axle grinding while in reverse on a cold start up.
2. Brake wheel vibration. 7 times repaired. I only have 37,000 miles on this truck! IT IS A NIGHTMARE.
3. Flat acceleration.
4. Engine hesitation.
5. AC issues.
6. Unknown source of vibration while driving, not braking. Think it might be the drive train.
7. Hard transmission shifts at random.
Has anyone either gotten their truck replaced by Ford via Lemon Law or a total fix on the brakes?
#1430 of 2180 overdrive switch on superduty f-250

When I press the switch that is on the end of the shifter, it will not turn off the overdrive. Can it be because the switch is bad.
#1431 of 2180 Starter interrupt relay problem
Aug 22, 2005 (5:49 am)
I have a major problem with my 98 F150. The truck wont start. I replaced the starter, the starter relay and the ignition switch. Still would not start. Started looking over the fuse panel and found the starter interrupt relay fuse keeps blowing. Sometimes after I replace the fuse she will start no problem. Then the fuse will blow again when I try to start it. I am at my wits end. Any ideas what the problem may be. Also when the starter was replaced so was the selonoid.

No, no yet.
I still think that it has to do with the lack of a fan motor for the A/C. Pepboy sells an aftermarket kit to install and I may try it. The dealer says that there is nothing wrong and we are just having a bad summer with hotter temperatures, they are full of ^^&*^&*.
All this new car era that we old timers are experimenting is bad because we have very limited control of our cars, just like computers are restricted in big corporations by IT. Car manufacturers and insurance companies are working together not just to do safer vehicles but to control what we can do with them like having computers on board so they can limit the speed we can go etc. Now insurance companies are reading the black box (in board computer) so they can see if were going over the speed limit at the time of an accident so the can deny our claim, very good info if we use it right but Ford is limiting the engine full potential my 5.3 engine feels like a 6 cylinder. Good luck and pls post if you find the fix.
