2006 Ford F-150 Problems
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.
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.
The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

The clock spring jumper wire behind the driver's air bag may come into contact with the lower horn plate, resulting in damage to the wiring. If this occurs, the air bag warning light may illuminate or the driver's air bag could deploy unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury or a loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the jumper wire with a new design, which includes a protective mesh cover. This recall is expected to begin on February 28, 2011.
Ford has recalled certain 2005–2006 F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT trucks for a concern with the brake booster vacuum supply hose. On some vehicles, the hose may swell where it attaches to the intake manifold, causing it to lose retention force. This may cause the hose to become detached from the fitting, which can result in reduced vehicle braking power. Dealers will replace the rubber hose on the brake booster vacuum supply assembly.
Ford has recalled certain 2005-2006 F150 trucks for a concern with the instrument cluster anti-lock brake system (ABS) lamp. On some vehicles, the ABS lamp will not illuminate. If the ABS system malfunctions, the warning light will not come on. Dealers will recalibrate the instrument cluster.
