#521 of 569 transmission problem
Dec 29, 2008 (9:54 pm)
Ok I have a 2001 Ford F150 4x2 6 cyl. automatic transmission. I went to take off one morning and it reved up to about 4000 RPM's before I could get it to move. I check the tranny fluid and it was completly dry. I filled that back up and realised that I had a leak in one of my lines. Got that fixed but it still wont move in drive, first or second. I have reverse perfectly fine. Someone said to try and rock it while I had someone put into drive to see if we could get the valve unstuck (if that is even the problem), someone else to me to put a bottle of lucas tranny fluid in it so see if that would help. Anyone have any options? I dont want to trade it in right now bc i would get nothing for it with the tranny problem. Any advace would be great!
#522 of 569 newfy..2000 F-150 plug blowing
Jan 25, 2009 (12:36 pm)
Hi, My F 150 V8 4.6 (4x4) has blown the no.2 cylinder twice. The first time it did not strip out and a new plug and coil fixed it. Last nighn (in -11 degree newfy winter weather) it blew again. I tried to install anew plug but I cannot get it to screw in. could something have fallen in while I was removing the coil pack or could it be stripped out and have to be re-bored.How big a job is it to re-bore and what is involved.Thanks Tom

Autozone sells a rethread kit with an insert with the 14mm thread. Takes about 15 minuts to do. Comes with the oversized tap and threaded insert.

Does anyone know how many Pittsburgh Steeler 150's were produced in '04? Have called local dealer and FoMoCo with no luck.
#525 of 569 2005 F150 Window Regulator Problem
Apr 01, 2009 (11:15 pm)
In the past 25 months all 4 of the electric window regulators on my 2005 F150 Super Crew have broken and the truck only has 57K miles on it. There is a loud pop and the window just falls into the door. The problem was the same for all, the plastic parts that retain the end of the drive cable let loose and then the cable unwraps from the motor pulley. Since Ford does not sell any service parts for these regulators the entire assembly must be replaced at a cost of about $200 each. So far it has cost me a total of $815.56 and I am extremely upset over this situation.
As a comparison, I drove my 1985 and my 1994 F150's for 152K and 204K miles respectively and never had a single electric window problem with either. I have seen a lot of complaints about this problem on auto web sites and my Ford dealer service and parts staff admit there is a high failure rate on these regulators. Ford should issue a recall on these regulators and reimburse the costs paid by those of us who have had to replace them already. If not there should be a class action law suit filed!

Apr 13, 2009 (12:33 pm)
I have a fully restored f 150 1991 5.0 4x4. Some time back it started rev fluctuation. I replaced the IAC, it was better but now it will start fine when cold, cold idle fine, drop to curb idle fine for awhile and then just die, instantly. What's up with that? Nearly everything is new, engine, TPS, 02 sensor, IAC, wires, plugs, cap & rotor, fuel filter, ...GO figure !!!!!! Please Help..... Thank you
#528 of 569 AC compressor lockedup
May 16, 2009 (6:44 am)
Hi friends, I got a 94 5.8 small eight,auto/overdrive only 90,000 have never even had a tune up and runs real good ( but its about time for some plugs ) it did sit a few years ago for about a year and when I got her up running again the AC Compressor or the Clutch locked up. I then had all new hoses and belts put on and the next step was look for a deal on a rebuilt compressor. But for some reason it just freed up and never gave any trouble again til this season, I did try to run it every week or so as they say but its locked up again, Now I'am only a fair mech. but is it possible to tear down that compressor and rebuild it with a kit or fix clutch ect. I asked different people and couple mechanics and I get a long blank look and no answer. but I dont have the $300. $650 plus labor I've seen quoted and hear in S">outhern Cailf. you gotta have air or forget it. Thank you for any thing you you might advise . Cleve
#529 of 569 Oil filter issue
May 16, 2009 (11:28 am)
Ok, I can't believe I have to ask this question but here goes . . . How do you get an oil filter off of a 2007 F-150, V8 5.4L? I've got it up on ramps and can get one hand on it, but I can't get both hands on it and there is no way to get an oil filter wrench on it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
