My truck only had 86k miles, whereas if I install a used one I inherit whatever mileage is on there. The contact was driving approximately 35 mph when sparks began shooting form the auxiliary cigarette lighter. This is a known problem with Ford because part is made of pot metal and bolted to steel cross member. I called my insurance and asked to be towed to a Ford dealership 5 miles away. I replaced the blower motor resistor, but this did not solve the problem.
The F-150 offers numerous trim levels, engine choices and bed and cab lengths. Towed to Ford garage module rusted off frame. The truck was still drive-able but smoking and clanking. The F-150 is expected to retain a better-than-average residual value, with the Super Cab models at the top of the chart, followed by the SuperCrew and then the Regular Cab. These are the common problems of the Ford F150 pickup truck from 2004 to 2008 with the 5. Turns out the fuel pressure module fpm that is mounted in the back of the truck on a crossmeber of the frame up above the spare tire was the cause. Safety-conscious consumers won't care for the lack of side-impact and side-curtain airbags.
Gone are the long-familiar Ford power steering system and torsion bar front suspension; replacing them are a modern rack-and-pinion steering and front coil-over-shock suspension. Drove 15+ miles to hometown and my mechanic. Further diagnosis showed that it's a problem with the instrument cluster. There was smoke, clicking and clanking on top of the right side of the engine so I turned the vehicle off. It happened for a third time while stopped at an intersection attempting to make a right turn, with his foot on the brake and the vehicle spontaneously accelerated. Checked with multi meter and fuse box no luck.
After a day of diagnosis, he stated the instrument cluster was the problem, and also that it was a known but not acknowledged issue by Ford. The F-150's silhouette is easy to spot, thanks to its tall bed wall about two inches taller than the previous-generation F-150. The car did not have heated seats. I immediately pulled over, popped the hood, whereas smoke and the rattling noise continued. The following chart shows the 21 most common problems for 2008 Ford F-150. All the contacts were very friendly and helpful. Notable options include a 300-horsepower 5.
Vehicle information display showed titles, I. The plug and boots had to be replaced. I was told by the Ford dealership that my 3 sparkplug had caused the mechanical issue and all plugs needed replacing. Driver safety is at risk. I took a bunch of photos and still have the original switch if you care to examine it. Be careful Fords are very popular having electrical issues.
Additionally replacement of right side engine issues resulted from not having done the 100000 mile tune up bull. The contact stated that his cellular phone was plugged into the lighter at the time of the failure and the sparks were falling into a trash bag inside the vehicle. This applies to 2004 2005 2006 2007 and 2008 Ford F150 trucks. The terminals need to tighter around the blade connection. Fleet buyers can opt for a mid-box cargo container that fits between the cab and the bed. There is nothing wrong with anything else on the truck except a light that will not go off.
Replaced the 2 coil and the dealer had to extract the broken spark plug cylinder 2. Heated seats being necessary as I am from Vermont. The dash and interior design on the base models look good enough, but the addition of leather, wood, chrome and center console-mounted shifter found on the high-end models combine to raise the bar on the plush pickup concept. The center armrest is also missing, needs tires, brakes are about 50%. At no time should spark plugs blow up or out unless they are defective parts or plugs not suitable to be transfixed into the cylinder or engine.
The cat needs a lot of care. Those who like to have as much fresh air in the cabin as possible will appreciate the SuperCab's optional rear roll-down windows, a first in this segment. New options include a factory-installed cargo management system, remote start, manual telescoping trailer mirrors and a rear backup camera which displays its image in the rearview mirror. A beefed-up version of the 4R75E automatic transmission has been assigned to handle the engine's added muscle. After a quick search online, there and a lot; and I mean a lot of people selling 2008 F-150 lariat instrument clusters.
