2001 Ford F-150 ProblemsEngine restarts very rough when warm
When cold, the engine started up and idled OK but after driving it somewhere then shutting it off and trying to restart, it barely started and ran very rough for a while. Pulled the codes out and they were 172 and 211. The 211 is regarding the PIP signal. Replaced the ignition control module ($54.99 from Advance Auto Parts) on the driver's side fender well and now it runs like a champ.
Turned on heater and got cold air. set it to 90 and the the temp guage got to half and only got a small amount of heat. vehicle started to have windows fog had to turn on A/C to clear them. It was working fine just two days ago last time used.
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.

2001 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.
The courtesy lamps on affected running boards may overheat when exposed to moisture and road salt. Overheating may cause the lamps and boards to melt or start a fire. Dealers will replace the wiring harness for these running boards.
