#1940 of 2180 Re: Shudder and vibration when turning [pllang]
Apr 09, 2006 (12:34 pm)
Had EXACTLY the same issue in my 2003 F-150 at 8,500 miles (vehicle shudder when turning either direction from dead stop, not as severe when going straight). Ford mechanic test-drove it for 5 seconds and precisely identified the problem: Bad limited-slip rear differential clutch. Dealership replaced it at no expense (under warranty) with what they said was a new and improved part. That was two years ago. Today the truck has 54,000 miles and it's still fine. However, this F-150 is now on its 4th set of front brake rotors (under 50,000 miles total). For this fourth set, I gave up on the Ford dealership and went to a brake/muffler shop and they installed "heavy duty" Bendik rotors. Everything was great for the first few thousand miles after installation of the "heavy duty" rotors, but the recurrent front-end vibration on braking is now gradually returning -- again! Have you or anyone you know had any F-150 rotor vibration issues like this? Any suggestions? Thanks, Elwood

My cousin recently had his 05 F-150 4x4 King Ranch with 32k at the dealer because of idling problems. After they looked at the truck for 1 week running tests Ford ultimately replaced all the injectors. One service technician said they have seen this before and it could be real problem for Ford, but the service manager said it's an isolated incidence.
Has anyone else heard of this problem?

I just bought an 06 f350 march 1. I have noticed slippage from 3rd to fourth when lightly accelerating. It is almost like the tranny cant make up its mind between 3rsd and 4th.
I havent gone to the dealer yet, so I dont know what the problem is. Anyone elso got any info?

I have had the same problem on my '05 F-150 5.4 Supercrew. Have lost the #6 injector twice and still idles rough. The dealer replaced all 8 injectors & still idles rough. I have 13k miles on the truck & it has been in the dealers repair garage 5-6 times with idle, AC & transmission problems.

1999 F250SD V-10
travel down the road, acts like engine dies, but engine is still running at an idle, hit gas pedal, no acceleration...shut key off, restart, truck acts normal, have replaced MAF sensor, TP sensor, possible transmission problems? Have checked fuel pressure, 35lbs. Not consistent, some days runs fine, others above problem occurs. Anybody else experiencing?
#1947 of 2180 Diesel performance upgrade gone bad
Apr 17, 2006 (1:55 pm)
All right smart guys, I need your help! 1997 F-250 7.3 litre turbo diesel. I installed an aftermarket down tube which took way to long to do. I love the increased horses, but hate the excessive noise and the major vibration that now occurs at idle and goes away about 300 rpms above idle. What happened? Did I break something? Is their further tuning that needs to be done? I have read about the e-brake problems but I have no vibration at speed or coasting. Also, any good luck at dampening the noise? All suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The transmission that bogged down during the 1-2 shift had a bad #7 check ball in the valve body. It seems that the check ball controls the torque converter clutch and when it comes on at the wrong time it causes the vehicle to seem to loose power or shift too soon. Actually when the conveter clutch comes on it locks out the torque multiplication from the action of the reactor and makes it feel like it bogged down. TSB 06-08-02 covers it.

Apr 21, 2006 (3:42 pm)
I hate to say it but think it is a never ending nightmare...very hard to admit for a Ford guy at heart! I've been to the dealer 12 different times heard 12 different excuses.... had the engine torn apart 4 times, transmission worked on twice, cam phasers replaced twice, vct sensors replaced, cam sensors replaced, crank triggers replaced. O2 sensors, replaced, paint peeled the day I bought it and had to be repainted, tires replaced, and needless to say the vibrations from nearly day 1 which has always been a mystery to the dealers that no one has been able to figure out and no help with Fords circle jerk hotline and customer service! Oh dont let me forget that the 12th trip to the dealer they didn't put my engine back together completely left the oil from the engine and ac all over everything under the hood, scratched the hell out of my bumper using it for a step stool and forgot to cover the fenders while there shirt snaps scratched the piss out of them. I think they got the customer service aspect down to a T with this problem. So much for a 40,000 dollar truck I bought 6 months ago with 15 miles on it. I'm a very easy going patient person and have always had the attitude the sht happens but have lost my patience and respect the way I have been treated by Ford when they tell you to get your attorney. So last of all I did pay the up front fees to retain an attorney with Ford experience today and have been warned Im the little guy with little money compared to Ford but have also got a good case and a good chance so Im going for it anyways. After all I have kept all the documents, receipts, dealer conversations, and etc all well documented. Does anyone else remember the truthabouttrucks movie with Rick Titus that was handed out when you bought it at the dealer...its funny the omitted the ultimate smooth ride for the 2006's new movie I just picked up. Last thing I want to get out here to everyone is I feel your PAIN and I know there is risk to everything in life but if anyone else wants to get involved and make the case stronger and knows how we can contact each other since we cant post email addies let me know! Strength does come in numbers and I must fight for our right!
