#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!

#527 of 569 Stalling problem
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.

I think chevrolet must be using the same vendor. I replaced my power units twice for the driver side and once on the passenger side.Truck is a 2000 silverado ext.cab with 64000 mi. Never had a power winow fail before.
#532 of 569 1988 Ford F150 Strange noise and bad idle on hot start
Jul 01, 2009 (8:48 pm)
When I shut off and then restart my truck, there is an intermittent high pitched noise accompanied by an unsteady too low idle speed. If I do nothing it usually dies or dies as soon as I put it in gear. If I give it some gas I can keep it running, and after a minute or so the problem disappears completely. I replaced the Idle Air Control which had no effect on the problem. The noise sounds sort of like maybe the air pump that is not getting enough air, but I can unplug the air pump and the problem remains.
#533 of 569 Spontaneous Acceleration of 2008 F-150
Jul 02, 2009 (7:13 pm)
Have had several episodes of truck suddenly accelerating. Even with brake pushed to floor, truck continues to go full throttle. After placed in neutral and tuned off/on, goes back to running normally. Has happened in drive and reverse. Each time has been at slow speed or slowing to stop. Dealer finds no problem, but on National Highway Transportation Safety Ad site, has dozen or more complaints listed. Truck has less than 7000 miles on it. Any one with luck on this? Dealership states Ford has no "bulletins" out on this "concern."
#534 of 569 Re: 2004 f-150 bucks or surges [bob237]
Jul 03, 2009 (3:44 pm)
Finally, I have found my problem with the surging of my truck with light acceleration. It was my air cleaner, it looks' good but my friend took it all the way out and it was filthy. I put a new air filter in and have had no problem and it has been a couple months.The engine was starving for air with light acceleration and was all right when I gave it more gas.
Thank's for all the sugestions and help, great group
