I have a 2004 F150 Off Road...It too has a similar problem....The vibration is felt through the floorboards and seems to be from the chassis (front) itself. It is slight and has been on and off for the year I have had this truck. It does not affect handling, or anything else and only lasts for a few minuites before it goes away...Of course, ford service can find nothing wrong, and while it is not a severe problem for me it is annoying. I get about 16 MPG average and all else is great with this truck.I just wish Ford would acknowledge that a problem does exist and do something about it.

Annoying is the operative word. Every time I get in this truck, I think about how much I paid to be this frustrated. Because they process these disputes using apparently, not so smart individuals, Ford and BBB both acknowledged the drive train problem in their communications. Attorney says they have shot themselves in the foot. It is going to cost me about $4000 temporarily, collectable from Ford along with all other costs, to exercise the lemon law and about 6 -9 months but mine is going back to Ford. What really makes me sick is that I traded a perfectly fine 2002 F-150 in on this junker. My 1994 Chevrolet 1/2 ton, stick shift, strippo model is a better rider.
#1467 of 2180 88 f-250 problem
Aug 30, 2005 (11:09 am)
I am new this so help me out, please.
my problem started when i melted the wires from the solenoid. and yes as a desperate woman i replaced the solenoid and everything was fine. then my husband drove it to the store and the starter got stuck, and naturally it was my fault. so he replaced the starter, and that didn't fix it, then he replaced the switch under the steering column, that didn't work so while he was at work i replaced the solenoid again, only i didn't attach the starter wire (the big black one, not the red)
at that time i was getting power to the truck. then he came home, touched the black wire to the solenoid and now no power at all.
please help me.......before i do desperate things like blow this truck up. jus kidding!

I have a 2005 FX4 with the same problem. It is not a vibration, but severe shaking. I just got home from the dealer and they are ordering a part for the steering. They had a truck in recently with the same problem and think they fixed it. They couldn't tell me exactly what the part was as their computer system was down and they needed to look up the truck that was repaired. I can let you know what they found when mine is fixed. It sounds like FORD should already be aware of this problem. I have never had anything shake this bad before and like you say, usually if you come to a complete stop it is fine when starting up again.

I got a cylinder 2 misfire reading and the guy at advance told me to replace the coil pack. Well, I did and now it will not start. I get a sound like a machine gun popping off when I try to start it. Anybody know what that is?

#1472 of 2180 Re: 97 F150 4*4 problem [mikei2]

I checked into the 4wd problem further now that i had my borther in law over to help me. On the front axle there is a black disc with one pink and one blue vacuum lines on it. when I move the actuator on the front axle that is attached to this black disc with my hand the front wheels turn (the truck is up on jacks and blocks) but the actuator does not stay in. I took off each vacuum line at that disc and only the pink line has a vacuum, the blue line does not even though I have the shifter in 4hi. I then followed the blue line up to the hood next to the batter and took it off there....it appears to be mated with a white vacuum line that did have vacuum. So this leaves me thinking either it is the thing next to the battery that these twho lines plug onto or it is a sensor somewhere else on the transfer case it self that tells the blue vacuum line to start suction. Also, the 4*4 indicator light does not come on in the dash.....any ideas?

If you manually turn your locking hubs on it should go away..One at a time will show you which hub is bad. Either wheel bearing or shaft is bad.
