1992 Ford F-150 Problems
If there is a vibration or noise at highway speed, it could be from the frontdrive shaft and may require replacement of the double cardan joint. A double cardan joint is a type of driveshaft joint that uses two universal joints.
Tubes for the EGR system (exhaust gas recirculation) can break, causing an exhaust leak and noise under the hood.
The gears for the timing chain can strip, causing the engine to crank but not start.
The battery light may illuminate on the instrument panel because the alternator wire harness connector is damaged. A new connector kit is available and should be installed to correct this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Ford has recalled Firestone Wilderness AT and Radial ATX tires installed on multiple lines of Ford trucks from 1991 to 2000. On some tires, under extreme conditions, the tread could separate, which can cause immediate tire failure. This may lead to a loss of vehicle control, injury, and death. Dealers replaced the affected tires.
