#1214 of 1234 2005 lariat seat belt's
Jan 15, 2011 (11:37 pm)
I have A 2005 f 250 lariat the latest thing to fail on my truck is the driverseat seatbelt latch. and I now realize that it is connected to what I guess is the airbags. my question is how hard is it to replace the latch part of the seat belt. naturally it could not be as easy as just unbolting and replacing. I hate to pay ford to replace it unless I have to especially since they refuse to do anything about my truck rusting at 5yrs and 3 months with less than 60,00 miles. so if anyone has any recommendations how to replace it on my own.
#1215 of 1234 F250 6.0L cold performance

I have a 2006 F250 6.0L and when the temp is in the 40's, the truck runs extremely rough for several miles with shaking and sputtering like it is misfiring. After a while it will settle down. I have had several different mechanics look at it. There is nothing that shows on any diagnostic tool. Any suggestions?

What was the outside temperature during your tow? The last time I towed, it was 75 degrees outside and the truck ran fine. I won't tow again when it gets hot until this summer. It seems the outside temp. makes a difference. My trans. slips if the outside air is in the 90 plus when pulling over a grade of 4,000 feet or better.

I just bought a 2005 F250 Diesel SuperDuty crewcab and love it. It pulls my 28 foot Jayflight with ease. However, when driving it on a regular basis, the exhaust is really strong. I've never owned a diesel before and am wondering if this is normal. Does anyone else have a F250 Diesel and also have a very strong exhaust?

I have a ford F250 super duty 2006 6l diesel engine, I had a small oil leak but the other day after I did an oil change the oil started to gush out, it appears to come from around or above the transmission. Any idea what coud have happened??

Same problem here on my 2005 F250 diesel, Very strong diesel exhaust fumes, enough to make you feel nauseated.
Though I also have a 2003 Chevy silverado duramax diesel and the exhaust is completely different, it smells clean like chlorinated water.
#1223 of 1234 Ford Motor Company notice on shimmy problems
Dec 08, 2011 (4:58 pm)
Today my husband received a letter from Ford Motor Co, regarding his 2006 F250 Superduty 4x4 truck. I believe it is an official notice to assure us that they are aware of the "shimmy problem". We bought this truck three years ago. I have personally experienced the "shimmy", which feels more like an earthquake. The first time I was traveling 55 mph, hit a small bump and it was fortunate that noone was in the left lane because the truck bounced to the left and it took about 300 ft or more to slow the vehicle down (I knew better than to hit the brakes). Ford's notice suggests we check the tire pressure which may be the cause of the shimmy. My husband has checked the tire pressure (which he always maintains at recommended pressure), the tie rod ends, u joints, and steering parts. He checked the tires to make sure they were correct for the truck and they are 245R75/ 17E which shows up as one of our purchase options on the different tire company websites. The National Highway Traffic Safety Admn is studying the problem with Ford. They suggest you check to make sure you have the correct tires and that they are inflated to the proper specs. If "shimmy" occurs you should gradually slow down by taking your foot off the pedal or lightly apply the brakes, and if you are concerned that these actions do not resolve your problem, you can contact your dealership for further assistance. Nothing is mentioned as to who is responsible for paying for the resolution. This problem is in addition to the spark plugs made of ceramics that stick and crack and require a very expensive tune up if you cannot change them yourself. We had to buy a tool to extract the broken ceramic plugs. Also, and I am not really sure if this is another malfunction in design, but we have a slow fill problem which is due to the charcoal canister probably being full of mud. We bought the truck and the previous life was as a fleet vehicle in a mining operation in Colorado.
So now that I have ranted about these issues, my question is Does anyone know of any agency we can contact to get these problems resolved? I think maybe Ford should fix the problems without charging us.
