i bought a 1995 f150 4x4 in 2007 it had 95,072 miles.the only thing i hate about it is that the truck is weak. It has no top end torque. It cant even do a burnout unless the road is wet. But what can you expect out of a 5.0 liter v8 302 with about 172 hp. What i like about it is that it can take you anywhere you want to go through the mud up hills you name it. the fords like mine have a exhaust leak problem,you can hear it when you go down the road which irritates me because it sounds crappy. And another thing that sucks about it is that it gets poor gas mileage at 15 mpg,it could be better and the transmission shifts hard at about 30-35mph if you stomp on the gas. I had to replace the starter and a tie rod and fix a wire on the transmisson.

I have had the same issue's on my 2008 FX4. It turned out it was me. I have the power adjustable pedals (gas and brake) and if you look they are really close together. This truck is unique in that the brake pedal when pressed will go below the level of the gas pedal when pressed. I found out that I was pressing on the brake pedal and gas pedal at the same time when I thought I was just applying the brakes and not realizing this was happenning. So, every time I apply my brakes now, I have to check and make sure I am not pressing the gas pedal also. It was a process I had to teach myself.

I mentioned this in other forums, but felt it was worth repeating... If you are a F-150 owner - try to check out the Ford Owners ( http://www.fordowner.com) website.
It has Towing & Hauling advice including understanding your payload. Also helps with keeping everything online, and allows you to keep track of your carsí complete maintenance records, calendar/mileage of recommended maintenance, and tons of coupons to use when you have your car checked at a Ford dealer.
#550 of 569 2001 Lariat Supercrew cabin air filter?
Sep 24, 2009 (2:21 pm)
hey, do these trucks have a cabin air filter and if so, where is it? I found a replacement filter at Autozone (IF one exists in the 2001 Lariat SC of course).

I have a 1998 F-150 4X4. When I put the truck in 4 wheel drive the light on the dash comes on but the front wheels do not engage. Any ideas.
#552 of 569 1992 F150 nite issues, solved a few and now im lost.
Mar 19, 2010 (8:27 am)
my 92 f150 nite is ...... i havent heard it run in 6 years now. it used to be my dads, and one day during my senior year, he went out and started it to go to work, it ran for about 2 minutes, then stalled out, and hasnt started since. well after tracing down a thousand different issues, i believe i finally have it licked,but i am faced with yet another issue. to tell you the full story, i have hooked a scan tool up to it, and had code after code come up, so i replaced the computer, did nothing, moved on to changing out sensor after sensor.....i.e. mass airflow, throttle position, so forth and so on, i even replaced the fuel pressure regulator, thinking maybe it wasnt getting the proper fuel amount. no such luck. now the thing i have found interesting is that there is no crank positioning sensors, or cam positioning sensors on these 302's. well finally a ford tech friend of mine told me to check the timing, it was off, way off, id say 2 or 3 teeth, so i reset the timing, and checked to make sure the distributor turned right away, and it wasnt a slapped timing chain. well i got all of this set, and the right firing order set (since there is two different ones for the 302's) and this is not a high output engine. i put a battery in it and went to turn the key, and the key wont turn. the steering wheel and ignition are locked, and no matter what i try i cant get them to unlock. wiggle the steering wheel both ways, wiggle the shift lever on the steering stem, both at the same time, i cant get it to unlock to save my life and im out of ideas, outside of chancing the whole steering stem out out. has anybody had similar issues before? or know any ideas, and does this truck fall under the saftey recall for the ignition switch? im getting sick of this and starting to think its a so any advise would be greatly appreciated, and for 22 years old, im quite knowledgeable so dont be afraid to ask any questions in return.

I'm glad you figured this out before you had an accident. I have a 2007 SuperCab w/o power pedals that use to scare the heck out me. I finally realized like you that I was pressing the accelerator when I pressed the brake causing the truck to race forward when I was trying to stop. This is not good for traffic signals. I think the pedals are a little to close to each other. Other than that Great Truck!
