#416 of 608 2005 F150 Tranny, PCM, Throttle Actuator, or Throttle Position Sensor?
Feb 21, 2010 (11:28 am)
I have an 05' F150, 152000 miles. I've had NO major problems with this truck until now. I recently took a trip down to NC from Ny. While down there I was driving one day, about to get onto a highway, I accelerate up to speed, and when I did I felt what I guess was nothing more than an irregular shift. It was just acting weird, but no slippage, no noises so I hit the OD button to take it out of overdrive and it seemed to clear up. 10 miles down the highway I hit the OD button just to see what would happen (I had just exited at the same moment) and came to a red light and it just stalled, like it was a manual and I didn't push the clutch in. I put it in park, and try to start it, it starts like its starving for gas, I have to feather the pedal to keep it running. I put it in drive and try to go and it barely moves, it moved, but I had to rev high to get it out of traffic and into a nearby parking lot. I get it into the parking lot and nothing, doesn't even shift into F or R.
So I flat bed it to a local shop which actually hooked up OBD for me free of charge (Thanks Massie Bros). They got these codes: P2104, P2107, P2110 and P2111, Throttle Actuator Control Module Fault, Forced Low RPM, Throttle Control stuck open. And refer me to a tranny shop. So I flatbed it to my Dads house and there it sits. Starts up and runs fine, just nothing in D or R, doesn't even feel like it engages when shifted to D or R. I was told by a cousin that he had a similar problem and that it may be the throttle position sensor.
We tested it, and according to the specs from Ford its bad. Should I start with that or is it my PCM.......or my tranny.....can anyone help? Thanks...

Finally took it back to Ford and went for a drive.....they say it is a "low RPM misfire" caused by a faulty spark plug. Happens more when in overdrive as the rpm's are lower. This usually, but not always, throws an error code. Going to get the plugs changed next week, which they say could be a project as the plugs sometimes break-off when taking them out.

have you figured out the issue with your transmission yet?
#420 of 608 transmission/clutch problem?
Mar 01, 2010 (11:25 am)
hello newby here. I have an 82 f-150, 4 speed, 6 cyl. Maybe 125K. When I drive, the ride is rough, and "lurchy" or "surgy", especially in 1st and 2nd, but I can feel it in 3rd too. does not do it if under somewhat heavy acceleration, or at all when deccelerating. Does it at slow acceleration, or with little acceleration at speed. I can sort of control it by letting off or pressing acceleratator a little. Ideas?

After I went and paid $120 for a throttle pos. sensor which didn't work I talked to the service manager at Ford down here in NC, and I told him what happened. He immediately said it was internal tranny failure, I didn't want to believe it but went and found a tranny at a salvage yard w/13000 miles on it. Swapped them out and guess what, for once someone at Ford was right. Not sure what went inside but was definitely the tranny. I must warn anyone with this model truck, if you ever have to remove the starter, good luck because the top 3rd bolt you can't see or even get to with a socket, thanks Ford engineers...that was the hardest part of the whole job.

While driving at any speed in any gear the transmission seems to go to neutral motor revs up ,it then shifts back into gear. This sometimes happens almost continusily other times very seldom. Fluid and filter have been changed. Any ideas anyone?
#424 of 608 1999 F-150 (2x4) Manual Transmission Stuck
Mar 11, 2010 (12:59 pm)
Hi everyone, I am new to the forum but impressed with the community posts.
My issue is:
My 1999 f-150 XL (2x4, 4.2) manual transmission is stuck. When parked and not running I can shift into any and all of the gears.
Once it is running I can't shift into any gear, the stick refuses to engage.
I have tried rocking it back and forth, and I can start the motor in gear with the clutch engaged (only tried reverse) but once running it refuses to shift.
I would prefer to avoid the mechanic if possible and do it myself.
Any suggestions or possible ideas about what it is?

Did the Clutch start slipping before this happen ? If not check the Oil in the Clutch Slave Sleeve Master Res.It should be on the Firewall where the Push Rod comes through. Also look at the bottom where it goes in to see if it's leaking oil or may have came out.
