OK, here we go. Ford F150 5.4L 3 Valve - 90K miles - so far all work done at Ford Dealer Engine was indicating rich on ECL codes after a spark plug change for a lean. Initially spark plug change yielded a lean condition, changed plug on #3 again - went to a rich condition. All this on bank #1. 20 hours of dealer diagnostics - finally yielded broken roller lifter on #3 intake, replace roller lifer and cam itself on bank one. Now runs nicely at speed, but intermittently engine drops

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer and two of the freeze plugs popped out during a freeze. One we were able to get to pretty easily--the other one is somewhere in the middle and looks difficult to get to. Will I have to take my entire engine out to replace this? And how much will this cost? I realize this is all my fault and I have learned my lesson. Just tryin to get her running again. Thanks =)
You may be able to reach this by removing the tire of the side of the freeze plug, then use a 2x2 or 2x4 and after hand setting it you push with the piece of wood to get it in tight, remember to use a piece of wood as it is soft enough not to damage ... 1996 Ford Explorer
I have a 1997 Ford F150 4x4 Supercab Stepside with 5.4L and factory towing package. On the factory trailer wiring plug I am not getting power for turn signals or brake lights. Running lights and brake controller work fine. I have checked fuses, and one was blown, which I replaced to get running lights working. But I still do not have brake or turn signals at the plug. Is there something else I can check before tracing the lines?
No, check the wiring in the rear going to hitch plug, they may have rotted or broke,if lights work on the truck then i would say its wiring,test wiring moving backward until you get power, this way you can pinpoint break location area, good luck, ho ... 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
My mother has a 1987 Ford F150, 351 automatic with 50,000 actual miles. She was having a problem with it dieing on her at stop lights and she was afraid to drive it. We've had it tuned up, new plugs & wires, a new distributor cap, vacumn line checked and replaced, a new carburetor and it still has the same problem, The mechanic advanced the timing slightly and said that was the problem. Now he is wanting to replace the timing chain and if that does not work pull the heads. He been unable t
At 50,000 miles, the timing chain should not be a problem. It's possible that there is carbon build up in the engine from sitting around and not being driven but at that mileage it shouldn't interfere with the engine running. A good 1 or 2 hour drive ... 1987 Ford F 150

I have a 1985 Ford F150 with a 302 FI engine. The engine runs fine (power wise) but, it runs so rich it will burn your eyes and uses a lot of fuel. I have already replaced spark plugs, plug wires, distibutor cap, rotor button and coil. I have also unplugged electronic items one a time too see if there was a difference in idle and there were for each one I unplugged. Anyone have any ideas???

Misfire I have a 99 xlt f150 4x2 v6, there is a vibration when you start the engine after it heats up, it runs perfectly well. I brought to Ford and they replaced 6 spark plugs. The problem is still there, they now say that the problem is the coil above the spark plug. They told me that it is safe to pull out the unit as I still have to wait for 1 month for the parts. Is it safe for short drives? I am afraid it might breakdown.. Thanks. I am using unleaded gas, just thought it might have an effe
