...........vibration started at around 40-45MPH. it is worse when towing a trailer. It is really bad after the truck sits for a few days without driving it. I too thought I was getting a flat when I first felt it. After about 20 minutes of driving, it goes away but while it is doing it, it is pretty violent.
Unlike most of the other vibration problems here, yours really does seem like it's being caused by the tires. Your symptoms are those of 'flat spotting', basically the tire flattens out at the bottom while sitting for some time. When you drive it gradually regains its original shape. Rotating and balancing won't help, you need to change tires to fix the problem.
#1542 of 2180 Locking Gas Cap
Sep 30, 2005 (4:29 pm)
I purchased a 2005 Ford F-150 Lariat 5.4L V8. I have not been able to find a locking gas cap for it. I was told Ford does not make one for this truck. Can anyone help on how I can get a locking gas cap?

Stant lists a locking cap for the '05 5.4 F150, it's part number 10510. Should be available almost anywhere, but you should probably bear the following in mind:
"Stant Responds to Locking Fuel Cap Shortage
Connersville, IN…..In light of soaring fuel prices the past few weeks, it should come as no surprise that orders for locking fuel caps are running at several times normal volume. The effect of increased demand vs. available supply is being felt at Stant Mfg. Inc., the world’s leading producer of locking and other closure caps. “All Stant facilities are working 24/7 at maximum capacity to produce locking caps to meet this unprecedented demand”, said Gordon Hoffman, Director of Marketing for Stant Corporation. “We expect to be back to normal delivery schedules within a few weeks. In the meantime we appreciate our customers’ understanding and patience as we get caught up.”

My 1997 Ford f-150 4.6 has a bad miss in the engine when under a load, when I sit and idle it runs fine. I have changed the spark plugs. plug wires, coils, fuel filter, one fuel injector ... I had it ran on the computer and no codes come up. Does anyone have any other suggestions. I actually did not change the spark plugs myself a local business in my area did that.

I have an '05 S/C 4x4 with limited slip. When you accelerate from a complete stop, you hear a distinct "clunk" coming from the rear end. Sometimes it is loud, sometimes you can hardly hear it, which tells me that it is not "normal". ..Anyone else experience this?

I also have an 05 supercrew 4x4 and I get the clunk, but only when taking off from a stop or nearly stopped. I took it in to the dealership and they don't think it is a transmission problem. No codes poped up right away. Taking it in on the 10th for a more thorough diagnostics check.

I have a 1994 Ford F-250 4wd with manual locking hubs in the front. I was movin it into my buddies driveway to replace the wheel bearing and the entire wheel came completely of my truck. My problem now is I don't know how the damn thing came apart to repair. Someone please tell me how that damn hub is held on the spline. and how do I get the inner wheel bearing off. oh yeah it was the right side that came off.

Please keep me posted on what they find...Also, has anyone noticed what sounds like a lifter (I know there are no lifters) "ticking" at idle. When I am in the truck with the radio off there is a very distinct metallic "tick" coming from the right front of the truck....
