1999 Ford F-150 ProblemsEngine Oil Leak from Right Head Gasket
An oil leak may develop from the the right side head gasket. Oil from this type of leak will commonly drip onto the starter. Our technician tell us an updated head gasket is available to correct this concern.
Water leaks that appear at the headliner and rear seat area have been known to be coming from the rear high mount stop light. The gasket that seals the light becomes warped over time and allows water to enter through the stop light into the cab area. A revised stop light is available, but I have found that properly placed caulk or foam tape will work also.

1999 Ford F-150 RecallsPossible Corrosion of Fuel Tank Straps
Vehicles sold or currently registered in states using corrosive chemicals to de-ice the roads may have fuel tank straps that can rust prematurely and fail. If the fuel tank were to shift as a result of a broken strap, the fuel lines could separate or the fuel tank could contact the ground. In either case, a fuel leak could develop, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank straps with straps that have increased corrosion protection. Early in the campaign, if replacement straps are not available, dealers may install a cable support under the strap as an interim repair or a steel reinforcement over the existing strap as a permanent repair. This recall is expected to begin September 12, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11S21.
Ford has recalled certain 1999 F150 trucks for a misprint on the vehicle certification label. The information about tire ratings, sizes, and air pressure listed on the original label is incorrect. This could result in the installation of improper tires with incorrect air pressure, which can pose a serious safety concern. Ford has sent affected owners revised certification labels.
