#275 of 613 Need a Ford Guru
Jan 11, 2009 (1:16 pm)
Got a 2004 F150 Super Crew that has about 80K on it. Started to develop a intermittent vibration problem. It usually happens at speeds between 45 and 50. Sounds like Iím running over a series of tiny speed bumps and it just last about 1-2 seconds, however; there is no vibration in the steering wheel. It feels as if it originates in the center of the vehicle and only appears if I slightly accelerate. Need a Ford guruís help here. Thanks for your feed-back.

This is exactly what my truck has been doing for three days now. Did you figure out what was wrong with it and how much did it cost?

Mudrun, Believe it or not, it turned out to be the stick itself. Running out of thoughts, I actually loosened the bolt that holds the stick on, started driving, and pulled the stick off--the noise went away, came back when stick was replaced. I tried some fixes on the stick, but ended up buying a new one for 100 bucks. If your truck is under warranty, try to get it fixed there first before messing up the stick like I did. There is some 'natural' bearing noise, but I'd say 80% is gone now, definitely the noise that seemed to come right into the cab. Chris

After I posted my issue, I spoke with a friend and he told me that it looks like a transmission issue. He told me to monitor the RPM gauge during the vibrations. Sure enough, the RPMs jump from 1,400 to about 2,200. It's the over-drive not engaging correctly. Aamco, here I come!

The automatic transmisson won't come out of park! The brake light switch is working. Is there a solenoid that has to be energized when the ignition key is turn on or the engine starts that allow the shift level moved from the park position?

I have a 2004 F-150 that just turned over 100k miles, and there is a distinct whine from the tranny starting at 25 MPH and lasts until the OD kicks in. A friend of mine says it's the thrust bearing. There has been a mild vibration ever since I had it (bought new) but it seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts from anyone?
#282 of 613 2004 F150 Lariat - need help -transmission?
Jan 19, 2009 (1:27 pm)
I have taken my vehicle in for the third time now for transmission related problems. The first time, they identified a blown seal (I believe). The second time a speed sensor was replaced. I am still having problems while in 4WH. When I am parking the car or starting out of a stopped condition, the vehicle will jump and sound like it is stalling. It is also very difficult to steer while in the same circumstance.
Any help/info is appreciated.

I had the same problem with a 93 F-350 and it was the throttle position sensor caused the problem

I am looking into my brother's 2004 f-150 automatic transmission problem, it won't shift into first or reverse without gassing it. I can get it to move but that seems to be about it. The fluid looks fine, and no noises.
This is a pampered F-150 4.2 L 6 cyl with less than 42,000 miles on it
He sent it to the shop and they said "bad transmission $ 2900.00 to fix it.
I have read several nightmare stories on this forum about this year and all the problems with it's transmission but no real answers! (for me)
Can this one be pronounced junk?
Is there a chance that a used trans. would be any better? or are they all junk?
Is there an older version that will fit and be more reliable?
Are they or anyone else upgrading them when rebuilding them with better parts?
I'm asking because there are about 50 of these trans available and it scares me.
Thanks for your input.
If Ford insists on cranking out these %x&** things, how can they ever expect repeat customers? No wonder they are in deep stuff!!!
