2000 Ford F-150 Problems

Engine -- Verified

An illuminated Check Engine Light could indicate that one or more of the ignition coils has failed due to excessive spark plug gap. To fix this problem, the ignition coils that have failed, the spark plugs, and all coil boots should be replaced.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Intermittent rough idle may be caused by the EGR sensor sticking, causing the EGR valve to stay slightly open. The valve and sensor must be replaced together to correct this concern.

2000 Ford F-150 Reviews

I have a 2WD 2000 F-150 Work version with the V-6 engine and a 5 speed manual. Mechanically it's a sound machine but the body is one very serious POS. The emissions canister has literally fallen off the truck due to bracket corrosion. The large sheet metal Radiator mounting member that goes from one fender to the other and then down to the frame thereby forming the mounting position for the front of the truck to the frame is missing the entire lower half. Yes, that's right, the forward end of the front fenders actually float above the bumper as they are no longer attached to the truck. The radiator itself is strung up with Romex wire as all the mounting positions rotted away long ago. The only thing keeping the radiator from impacting the fan are the hoses. Cab corners and rear end of the bed? Don't get me started. This truck has very low mileage for the year (104K) but it still books for a paltry $2500. Given the miserable state of the sheet metal on this pig I'd be ashamed to take that much money from someone. Ford? Never again. You Ford diehards need to think again.

my truck is mostly under warranty by auto zone as ive replaced more on this vehicle then all other vehicles ive owned combined.170,000 miles and i can barely keep up with the repairs.im going back to chevy or maybe even toyota.

the rear end busted and it doesnt go when i hit the peld hard

I bought this truck in 2001 from a dealer where the manager had been driving it for about 8K miles. So I got it at a used price even though it had to be sold as new since it had never been sold before. I have done regular maintenance and have never had a problem withthe truck, driven it across the country and from San Diego to San Antonio twice, cruised at approx 80 the whole way, it never "blinked". I drive it nearly every day, and have never had a better truck. Will keep it until the wheels fall off and then get another. Great truck!

2000 ford f-150 other than coils going out this has been one of the best trucks i have had and i use my trucks for hard work use but of couse id rather push my ford than drive a dodge or chevy not even foriegn trucks live in usa buy usa
