My 1998 F150 XL went dead today at a traffic light. Towed it to the Ford dealer and I'm waiting for diagnosis tomorrow. Hoping it's battery, alternator or something fixable. I am very, very attached to that truck, as I was to the Ford Explorer we had before we bought the truck. Never thought I would like anything as much as that Explorer, this F150 proved me wrong!
I've read with much interest the posts on this site tonight......this truck has had it's share of problems too, rotors, brakes, calipers hanging up, ABS, sensors, fuel pump, I think I replaced the alternator a couple of years ago. All things being said, it's been (and hopefully will continue to be) a great truck, reliable and safe. I now hope it's reasonable to fix, would like to get it to 250,000 before it gets a much deserved rest. By the way, the truck has seen it's share of trailer towing too, about 3 weeks a year since we got it. Just needed a place to share thoughts and hoping this isn't an obituary!
We also own a 04 Ford 150, though hubby uses that one. No problems with it. Still like my 98, though.............

I have an 04' F-150 Crew. I too have been experiencing the vibrating when I get between 60-70 mph. Took it into the shop today and was told first it must be out of balance and then I was told I needed new tires instead. They had the nerve to tell me that 3 out of the 4 tires were BALD!!! I am a woman and let me tell you I am not STUPID. I take care of my ride and treat it like a baby and that includes mataining it according to all standards. Something is going on here and I want answers...lol...sorry....getting down from my soapbox now.

Have you been able to contact Ford yet ? I would be glad to exchange dealership names if that would help.

Trace your wiring from the selector switch before you go to the pain of dropping the fuel tank. While under the truck though replace the fiber filter in the T housing where the fuel lines from both tanks come together if it is like my 86' model.
